Mariah Carey: 'Nicki Minaj DID Threaten To Shoot Me!'
Fallout continues over American Idol judges' shouting match...
US TV personality Barbara Walters reported on The View that she had discussed the incident with Mimi - backing up a claim made by gossip site TMZ earlier.
Walters said: "Nicki walked off the set and multiple people heard Nicki say, 'If I had a gun I would shoot the bitch.'"
We reported yesterday how Nicki had claimed that Mariah called HER a "bitch" shortly before the video footage of her own angry tirade was captured.
However Nicki has denied the shooting comment claim - and taken a pot shot at Mariah on Twitter instead.
She 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.
"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."
Mariah apparently also told Walters that although Nicki hadn't apologised, she had claimed that she "loves" Carey.
