The mother-of-all TV bust-ups was exposed earlier this week as American Idol judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey clashed during auditions, but according to reports it was Mariah that started the trouble.
Sources have reportedly told TMZ that Mariah had called the ‘Super Bass’ rapper a “b*tch” a few times, and not in a nice way, and now they have claimed that just a few moments before the secret filmer began capturing their bust-up on camera, the ‘Hero’ singer had been sniping at her.

“She keeps bringing up how many records she's sold, name dropping people she's worked with, how many tours she's done, and how many Grammys or awards she's won,” the insider told the website, before adding: “Nicki is tired of it”.
Considering that the new judges only got together a matter of weeks ago for the first round of auditions – we wonder how they are going to cope until the season ends in May?
