Nicki Minaj on Mariah Carey American Idol spat: "I reached my boiling point"

Nicki Minaj has opened up on her recent fight with fellow American Idol judge Mariah Carey.

The pair engaged in a verbal fight on the set of the TV talent show earlier this year, with leaked footage showing Minaj in particular having a go at Carey.

Speaking in the new episode of her reality show Nicki Minaj: The Truth, which aired last night (November 11), the 'Beez In The Trap' star revealed that Carey "egged her on" to the point of anger.

Minaj added that her colleague doesn't like having another female on the judging panel, which is completed by Randy Jackson and Keith Urban. She said:

"I just know that I had reached my boiling point. Twenty minutes before that happened, she egged me on."

The singer and rapper continued: "I stormed off the stage because I didn't want to do that. I left and when I came back it was another jab. [Mariah] admitted she did not want another female doing the show. Thinking someone's coming to steal her shine. Nitpicking. I stay away from that."
