It looks like Nicki Minaj may have done way more than challenge Mariah Carey to a fight during their altercation at American Idol auditions earlier this week.

During yesterday's episode of The View, Barbara Walters said Mariah called to inform her that Nicki allegedly made a death threat after the altercation! Baba Wawa said that Mariah was concerned because, "Nicki walked off the set and multiple people heard Nicki say, 'If I had a gun I would shoot the b***h.'" As a safety precaution, Mariah has now hired extra bodyguards to be around her...because Nicki clearly has direct connections to the Crips.

As of now, there is NO video or audio proof that Nicki made these statements. She also denied it when Mariah confronted her about it directly. But while Mariah seems to be going to media outlets about the drama on the show, Nicki is spreading the word on her Twitter page -- and she isn't happy! "I don't call tmz n Barbara Walters cuz I stand on my own two feet. Never needed an army. God is good. Insecurity is as cruel as the grave," she tweeted.

Nicki then put up another venomous tweet which read, "I guess it hurts 2 have the producers tell u to ur face that nicki is the best judge we've had since simon. Awww, poor u. Keep them lies cmn." Poor Keith Urban. Poor, poor Keith. He's staying clear of the drama though and in what might be the funniest moment of this whole conflict, called the show's set "a very alive and very invigorating work environment." Talk about the understatement of the year!

Whose side are you on in this battle?
