Nicki Minaj in trouble on ‘American Idol’
Nicki Minaj might be in hot water with the powers that be on “American Idol,” when Nicki showed up late to a live taping earlier this month, it may not have been the first time.
“Nicki has ALWAYS been late,” a source close the show told RadarOnline.com. “Even back during the audition phases she showed up anywhere from an hour or two past call time, pushing all of the auditions back and angering the other judge.”
Allegedly, she also has a huge entourage with her and won’t allow the contestants or their families to take pictures with her. And they can forget about taking candid shots of the “Starships” rapper, too! Although she was about 13 minutes late to the first live show of the season, Nicki has supposedly been more than two hours late before.
“After the lunch break one day everyone was waiting to audition and the judges all showed up together two and a half hours late and it was because of Nicki,” the insider claimed. “All of the families had to wait outside the holding room, so they didn’t know what was going on that whole time until Nicki and her entourage finally showed up. She never showed up before 11 a.m.”
