Breaking News: Nicki Minaj tries to fight co-judge Mariah Carey at American Idol auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina today, after swearing at her and threatening, “I’m gonna knock you out” OMG! It’s the “Battle of the DIVAS.”

(via TMZ) Nicki Minaj derailed the “American Idol” auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina today, after swearing at Mariah Carey and threatening, “I’m gonna knock you out” … sources tell TMZ.

Multiple sources are telling us there was a blow up between the two … with Nicki saying, “I told them, I’m not f*ckin’ putting up with her f*ckin’ highness over there.”

It all went down while the two were sitting at the judge’s table … with Keith Urban sitting in between them and Randy Jackson sitting on the far end, next to Mariah.

We’re told producers ended the auditions for the day so the two judges could cool down.

Big wigs on the show seem uncharacteristically upset by the blow up — it appears this was no joke and it seems producers are worried about Mariah and Nicki co-existing for the long haul.

Nicki: “I’m not sitting here for 20 million having her look down here repremanded everyday. No.”

Mariah: “I can’t see my kids because you decided to act like a little crazy bitch and go all around the stage.”

Nicki: “Go see them now, go. You’re boring as ****.”
