Former ‘American Idol’ Producers Claim Mariah Carey Started Beef with Nicki Minaj

Apparently folks are ready to get real about Mariah and Nicki’s beef on “American Idol.”

That Grape Juice writes:

Speaking about the Idol’s 15-season run at a recent panel, Mark Darnell –  FOX’s former President Of Alternative Programming – said:

“The one you think was the problem—she wasn’t the problem.”

Nigel Lythgoe, who many will remember for producing the ‘Idol, candidly chimed in adding:

“Nicki was not the problem…There are tapes buried in chainsaw.”

  1. It’s no secret that Mariah is a diva. But what I never understood is what happened for her to go from making a song with Nicki to not being able to stomach her. Something happened.

  2. Interesting. Well the damage is already done. Most are going to still believe Nicki was the messy one who started it. Especially since it’s now the popular thing to bash her.
