The saga continues in the war between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey. After video surfaced Tuesday (Oct. 2) of the entertainers arguing at the judges table during a taping of an “American Idol” audition, Carey now insists Minaj threatened to shoot her. The rap star took to Twitter to deny the claim and let loose on her accuser.

Earlier today, Barbara Walters reported on “The View” that she spoke with Carey about the heated incident. The talk show host said the “Honey” songstress was “concerned” because “multiple people heard Nicki say, ‘If I had a gun I would shoot the bitch,’” after she walked off the “American Idol” set.

The Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded creator gave her side of the story through a series of Twitter posts. According to Minaj, Carey is lying.

Carey says she’s received no apology from the Young Money MC regarding the highly publicized argument. As a result of the “threats,” the singer has reportedly beefed up her security detail. Her publicist issued a statement to Barbara Walters, promising that she would still take part in her role as an “American Idol” judge.

“For the record, Mariah’s doing well,” the statement reads. “She obviously still has serious concerns, but is hopeful that everyone will act in an appropriate, professional manner. She plans to move forward and she believes this season will be the best ever.”
