American Idol judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj have reportedly been involved in a massive argument on set and now many are wondering if the feud between the two divas was real or fabricated to boost flailing ratings for what was once a top-tier reality show.
Mariah and Nicki have been locked in a war of words in which Mariah told Barbara Walters that the YMCMB rapper threatened to shoot her. Of course, Nicki went on the defensive via Twitter saying that everyone believes the rumors because she is a black rapper.
Obviously, there's either some real drama in the making or the producers got very crafty and wanted to make sure the world was talking about the new set of American Idol judges before the show debuts.
Some people online have been saying that the feud is fake.
"Could you please place a 'paid advertisement' warning on these types of stories? This is OBVIOUSLY a manufactured feud for ratings," said one commenter.
Do you think that the fight between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj is all a big publicity stunt? Are there really hard feelings between the two dueling divas?
