It looks like all those happy publicity photos and denials of a feud between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj are total bull.

We're still in the early stages of auditions for the upcoming season of American Idol, but it sounds like these two just can't get along. During the most recent auditions yesterday in Charlotte, North Carolina, Nicki launched a full-on ghetto attack at Mariah and according to video from TMZ, even threatened to knock her out! "Get this s*** in every time you patronize me, I'm-ma take it back, and if you've got a f***ing problem, handle it," said Nicki. "I told them I'm not putting up with her f***ing highness over there. Figure it the f*** out." Um, wow. WOW.

Randy Jackson tried to defuse the conflict while poor Keith Urban was stuck sitting between both women. Mariah said very little during the conflict, letting Nicki act like it was an episode of The Real Housewives and appeared to make a move towards the exit at the end of the video. "Whyyyyyyyyy," Mariah tweeted shortly after before deleting it.

The producers of the show ended auditions early and sent everyone home, making it clear they aren't salivating at the prospect of ratings gold from the drama. They're genuinely unsure if Nicki and Mariah will be able to get through the season because, well, we haven't actually gotten to the Hollywood part of the show! It's also unclear if Keith will want to stick around for the whole season and subject himself to this ridiculousness. It may turn out that those mega-salaries for the judges were a bad, bad move.
