Well, hopefully it’s unfounded but Carey is not taking any chances.
According to Barbara Walters, who spoke to Carey Thursday morning and relayed the conversation on ABC’s “The View,” Minaj made the comment while leaving the set after this week’s encounter, which was videotaped. She says other staff members heard the same gun remark.
“She said that when Nicki walked off the set, multiple people heard Nicki say, ‘If I had a gun I would shoot the b—h,’” Walters shared.
“She is very concerned. She is with her twins,” Walters says. “She doesn’t feel that anything would happen. I’m quoting now, ‘But Nicki is unpredictable’ and Mairah says she can’t take a chance and she has hired extra security.”
Walters says that the two have since been in meetings together, but that Minaj has not apologized. At one of those encounters, Minaj apparently told Mariah that she loves her but predicts “we might fight again.” Walters says Mariah responded with “No, we will not.”
“Mariah said she doesn’t feel comfortable emotionally, but she will continue with the show because she likes the show and she loves mentoring the contestants,” Walters says.
After “The View” Minaj took to Twitter to share her side of the story.
”Hey yAll. Lets just say nicki said smthn about a gun. ppl will believe it cuz she’s a black rapper. Lmao. I’ll then hit up Barbara n milk it,” Minaj tweeted. “Ironically no camera or mic heard the gun comment tho. Lol @ the struggle. Not even the producers believed u. Say no to violence barbs.”
Minaj says Walters had not reached out for comment. “I guess we’re too dangerous,” she tweeted. “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.”
