Prior to their now infamous blowup, American Idol judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey worked together before Minaj was a huge star.
According to TMZ Minaj joined Carey for her 2010 song, “Up Out My Face.” According to the report, Minaj was incredibly disrespectful to Carey, mocking her behind her back while Carey assumed she was helping to launch her career.
B. Scott tells TMZ, “Mariah went out of her way to be nice to Nicki and make her comfortable." B. Scott notes that Minaj couldn’t be bothered with Carey’s generosity as she was "making faces at her [Mariah] laced with rude comments under her breath."
However, a close friend of the “Starship” contests Scott’s claims saying, “He works as Mariah's stunt double and of course he would say things like that. He's worked for her for years."
