tells TMZ, "The statement [that Nicki made a death threat] is absolute rubbish.  It's absolutely not true in any way, shape or form." Nigel adds that Mariah confronted Nicki this morning and asked if she made the death threat and Nicki said absolutely not. Nigel says Mariah's people are stirring the pot and gave her bad info.

Nicki Minaj
's rant on the "American Idol" set Tuesday went way beyond name-calling ... she threatened Mariah Carey's life -- this according to sources connected to the production.

Our sources say ... in the heat of the argument, Nicki said, "If I had a gun I would shoot her."

The alleged threat was not captured on the video obtained by TMZ.  But this is interesting ... if you listen to the audio closely, 11 seconds in you hear Nicki say to Mariah, "Off with your head! Off with your head!."

A source close to Nicki says the singer calls B.S. on the death threat allegation.

Nicki Minaj is a classless ghetto btch and is nowhere near in a league with Mariah Carey. Whose bad idea was it to get a clown like Minaj in the first place? Ok, you're fired, and take that Nicki hag with you!

She needs to be kicked out the show, what kind of example is her to young people.

This ignorant woman is the person that feels the need to advise us for who we should be voting for? Sure right because we all should be taking advice from a pathetic desperate woman that has plump her a&& with filler to sell records and who chooses to dress each day as a silly clown to hide her lack of real talent.

She ought to be glad to be in presence of Mariah Carey...a REAL gifted singer. Nicki, go back to the ghetto and the fast food restaurant job where you came from.

I dislike NM so much I'm not even familiar with her music, but if I were in a room with Mariah Carey for more than 10 minutes I'd probably threaten to kill her too.

Mariah has something Nicki will NEVER have.... talent. Mariah has one of the most powerful voices ever. Nicki... she's a talentless hack. But, they are both a little too full of themselves to the point of ridiculousness. Whoever thought of putting these to egomanics together clearly wasn't thinking.... SMH

Nicki shouldn't be judging anyone with any kind of talent in the first place. However, Mariah is known for her diva ways so I wouldn't be surprised if she provoked this outburst. American Idol is going down, fast.

You can get nicki minaj out of the ghetto but you will never get the ghetto out of her. She represents what trash is all about, shame on you American Idol for hiring this kind of alleged entertainer and have her share the spotlite with a classy lady like Mariah Carey.

Nicki is a talentless hack. No real professional (Mariah, Randy, and Keith) should have to deal with the likes of bozo.
