Nicki Minaj - Mariah Carey Threatened By Nicki Minaj? : Nick Cannon Gets Involved

Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey: a feud made in TV heaven, for the producers anyway. But now the rivalry has got so far – with Minaj threatening to shoot Carey – Nick Cannon has stepped in to give his opinion, reports The New York Daily News.

But it’s not the protective husband speech Mariah, and us, were perhaps expecting, with Cannon stating that he “wasn’t concerned” over Minaj’s supposed threat to “shoot” his better half. “I wasn't concerned," Cannon told E! News. "That's exactly what you called it was drama. With drama, it's theatrics. I'm not worried about that stuff." When he was asked about the supposed gun threat, Cannon laughed, saying: "I don't know. I wasn't there. It made for good news. It sounded good, right? Good job, Fox." His wife, Mariah, doesn’t seem so sure, and she’s reportedly beefed up the ranks of her security entourage, just be safe.

The controversy started (the gun controversy, anyway) when Barbara Walters told The View, “She said that when Nicki walked off the set, multiple people heard Nicki say, ‘If I had a gun I would shoot the bitch’”. Minaj has a history of threatening to shoot rivals: the 29-year-old super-star put out a lyrical hit on fellow rapper Remy Ma in a 2008 freestyle rap. Cannon is probably right; this whole thing has been blown out of proportion, and Fox are loving the extra exposure, but whilst gun threats are being bandied about, no one’s going to sit back and ignore it.
