Nicki Minaj - Nicki Minaj: 'Insecure Carey Is Stirring Up Controversy For Sympathy'

Rapper Nicki Minaj is going on the offensive after her rival American Idol judge Mariah Carey went public with her fears about her safety following a vicious on set bust-up between the pair on Tuesday (02Oct12).

The two new judges were filming an audition in Charlotte, North Carolina when they became embroiled in a huge argument over a contestant, with the Starships hitmaker unleashing a furious, foul-mouthed tirade at Carey.

Footage of the fall-out has since leaked online and reports suggest Minaj continued her rant as she walked off set, and allegedly raged, "If I had a gun I would shoot her (Carey)."

Idol's executive producer Nigel Lythgoe has insisted the death threat story is "absolute rubbish", but Carey went on to fan the flames of the controversy by sharing her side of events in a phone call with veteran broadcaster Barbara Walters on Thursday (04Oct12).

In the chat, which Walters recanted on her Tv talk show The View, the Hero icon admitted she was beefing up her security for her own protection because, "Nicki is unpredictable".

Now Minaj is firing back over what she believes is nothing but a pitiful PR stunt and she has aired her feelings on her Twitter.com blog, accusing Carey of playing up the incident to gain public sympathy.

Addressing her fans, who she affectionately calls barbz, the hip-hop star insists she never threatened Carey and is adamant the media has turned on her because of rap stereotypes.

She sarcastically writes, "Hey yAll. Lets (sic) just say nicki said smthn (something) about a gun. ppl (people) will believe it cuz (sic) she's a black rapper... I'll then hit up Barbara n (and) milk it... Ironically no camera or mic heard the gun comment tho (though)... Not even the producers believed u. Say no to violence barbz..."

Minaj goes on to accuse Carey of stirring up the controversy after reportedly becoming jealous of the rapper's popularity with producers: "I don't call (gossip website) 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 (Cowell, former judge). Awww, poor u. Keep them lies cmn (coming)".

And she's upset Carey aired her feelings in public after appearing to clear the air with Minaj on Wednesday (03Oct12).

She adds, "Tried to keep quiet but let's go!!!! I thought we resolved it yesterday but I see u want ur pity party to continue... All I do is compliment u. That's not enuff (enough)? Ur a legend, cheer up. U don't have to run down ur resume or feel intimidated (sic)."
