Did Mariah Carey Threaten To Leave American Idol?



The tension between American Idol judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj might make for great television, but it looks like the ongoing feud is finally getting to Mariah.

According to reports, Carey has threatened to leave the FOX show because she is sick of Nicki’s nasty ways. An insider tells FOX411’s Pop Tarts column that the 43-year-old does not want to come back. “Nicki is really disrespecting her and she’s tired of trying to bite her tongue all the time … She’s done with it all. She doesn’t need the platform, and all the drama isn’t healthy for her,” the source explained.

Just a few weeks ago, there were rumors of Jennifer Lopez finishing up the season and replacing Carey.

HipHollywood reached out to FOX who told us that they have no comment.

Idol is down to their last three contestants, so would it be fair for Carey to back out now? Sound off below.

    Mariah, DO NOT let little Nicki Minaj run you off. Nicki Minaj is super talented, BUT this chick really needs to HUMBLE HERSELF!!!! Yes, I get that Mariah Carey can be a diva at times, HOWEVER, Mariah Carey has 18 #1 songs, sold over 200 million albums, 5 grammys (she should have more), & has a place in the Guinness World Book of Records. Therefore, Mariah has EARNED the right to be called a DIVA!!!!!!!!! Nicki, bring it down a few notches.

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
