Nick Cannon was not worried about Nicki Minaj's outburst against his wife Mariah Carey on the set of 'American Idol' and believes it ''made for good news'' for the show.
The two went head-to-head on the judging panel of the show last week, with Nicki at one point threatening to shoot the 'Hero' singer and filming having to be called off, but Nick claims he was not ''worried'' about what was said and believes it made ''good news'' for the series.
He told E! News: ''I wasn't concerned. That's exactly what you called it - drama. With drama, it's theatrics. I'm not worried about that stuff.
''I wasn't there. It made for good news. It sounded good, right? Good job, Fox!''
Mariah was supposedly so nervous about what Mariah said - at one point calling for her head to be cut off - she beefed up her security detail.
However, a friend of Mariah's said she would not let the 'Starships' hitmaker ruin her time on 'American Idol' because she has dealt with ''far worse'' in her long career.
The source said: ''She's not going to let this faze her now - the outbursts won't faze her.
''She'll handle [it] with poise and grace. Mariah has dealt with far worse in her career.''
