Mariah Carey

Tells Barbara Walters Nicki

Threatened to Shoot Her

10/4/2012 9:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1004_mariah_carey_nicki_minaj_articleMariah Carey just made it clear -- TMZ was dead on when we reported Nicki Minaj threatened to shoot her.

Barbara Walters reported on "The View" today she spoke with Mariah, who said she was concerned because "Nicki walked off the set and multiple people heard Nicki say, 'If I had a gun I would shoot the bitch.'"

Walters says Mariah told her, for safe measure, she's hired extra security.

And, Walters adds, Mariah said Nicki has not apologized but told her she loves her ....HOWEVER, Nicki said they might be fighting again on "American Idol."

For her part, Nicki just 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."

Minaj continued, "I guess it hurts 2 have the producers tell u to ur face that nicki is the best judge we've had since simon. Awww, poor u. Keep them lies cmn." So much for the truce.

As for Keith Urban (who was caught smack in the middle of the crossfire Monday) he told Extra yesterday he felt like "the UN" -- but added, "I love it, I gotta say. I love working with passionate people. I love artists. Everyone just sort of expressing themselves. It’s a very alive and very invigorating work environment."

Isn't Nikki the same b*tch that got hit by her boyfriend in a hotel room, called the police, told them about it and then denied that it ever happened? Meanwhile TMZ posted the actual police report!!! And she STILL denied at! Look it up. I bet it's still on TMZ.

Mariah did a real Bytch move...running snitchin to that ol' bag of bones! She want's Nicki fired cuz she is aware her career is over! I don't understand these middle age women, we're supposed to welcome the younger kids in, not kick them on their way up! First Lil Kim now Mariah. Shame on them, freakin' shame. Whitney welcomed her whorin azz when she first came into the business! When was her last album??

Mariah needs to take her arse home and learn her kids names. There is a reason Nick didn't want you on AI. Deep **** yes, diva no. Team Nicki all the way.

Can't watch the show. Nicki has atrocious manners, and bad attitude. She's a clown.
