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.

It looks like I will need a different "guilty pleasure" because usually at this time of year, I looks forward to American Idol. I mostly enjoyed the judges banter, even moreso than the "talent" until the final 10.
This year,. nobody on the judges panel interests me in the least, and my disdain for Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey just pushes me away even more.

All I see is is this pink cotton ball bobbing back and forth whining like 30 year old baby. Wtf were they thinking even letting this skank on the show, everyone knows she's jealous obviously of better talent and she can't hide it no more.

What is so funny is that stupid people believe all this bull****. It's ALL FOR ratings, and I think it will blow up in AI's face. 95% of my friends are not going to watch. Who actually watches this crap now? AI is going down a very bad road. It used to be enjoyable. Now it's ridiculousness.

Mariah.. shut the f:uck up. Nobody I mean nobody is going to sit there and let you talk down to them. Mariah was talking out the side of NECK and Nicki put her in her place. If Mariah wants respect she needs to give it. It does not matter who is sitting with Mariah they are going to go off on her because she pushes your hot botton and ask for it. A lot of people are hating on Nicki for standing up to the Bitch, but wait until the show starts you will see Mariah's biches in action..Diva my azz, Nicki keep standing up for yourself, you are not one of her yes men.

They're both divas and PIA's. Off with both their heads. On Idol anyway. What a bunch of bull, probably cooked up by Nigel to get publicity.
