Nicki Minaj has fuelled her war of words with American Idol co-judge Mariah Carey after launching a Twitter rant over accusations that she had threatened to shoot Mariah.
The ladies got into an argument during auditions for the show earlier this week, with footage leaking of Young Money rapstress Nicki hurling expletives at Mariah, forcing the auditions to be stopped for the day.
After Barbara Walters claimed Mariah had told her that Nicki had threatened to pull out a gun on her, the 'Starships' rapper took to Twitter to refute the claims of violence.
"The struggle to be a victim is real in these streets. Lmaooooooooooo. The struggle to not have the kid on the show is real in these streets. Lmaooooooooo," Nicki wrote in reference to the accusations.
"Hey yAll. Lets just say nicki said smthn about a gun. ppl will believe it cuz she's a black rapper. Lmao. I'll then hit up Barbara n milk it." "Ironically no camera or mic heard the gun comment tho."
"Lol @ the struggle. Not even the producers believed u. Say no to violence barbz. #struggleface. 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. Tried to keep quiet but let's go!!!!"
Nicki also referred to the fact that she and Mariah had actually called a truce the day before, adding: "I thought we resolved it yesterday but I see u want ur pity party to continue."
