CLAIM: Nicki Minaj & Mariah Carey Clash in American Idol “Battle of the Divas”

Truth rating: 2

Months before “American Idol” even premieres its new season, the tabloids are insisting that bad blood between judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj is leading to “tension” on the hit talent series.

It’s a “Battle of the Divas,” declares Life & Style this week, with the mag reporting that there was “an uneasy feeling in the air” when the judging panel assembled earlier this month for auditions in New York.

But while Carey and Minaj laughed about the anticipation of a feud, nothing actually got ugly between the two.

That’s why Life & Style has to write speculatively that Carey is “no doubt prepared to butt heads with the rising star.”

“I’ve known Nicki for a while, and I can tell you 100 percent that she’s a diva,” explains an “insider” for the tabloid. “I don’t know how she’s going to get along with Mariah on Idol. I’m guessing she won’t.”

In other words, the so-called “Battle of the Divas” might happen in the future, the tab is “guessing.”

As the show’s host Ryan Seacrest recently pointed out, there are not many “dull moments” between Carey and Minaj, and some ratings-boosting banter and bickering is expected, but at the end of the day, “they get along fine.”

Right now, talk of an epic clash between the two superstars is simply “Idol” gossip.
