MARIAH Carey is hopping mad!
The superstar singer is said to be furious that Nicki Minaj is in talks to join her on the American Idol judges’ panel.
Sources say Carey, 42, hung up the phone when she was told Minaj, 29, was the top candidate.
“Mariah was led to believe she would be the only woman on the judge’s panel,” a source said.
“As for the composition of the judge’s panel, we’re told by no means is it a done deal. There are 2 scenarios being played out. First, it’s unclear if Randy Jackson will come back as a judge or a mentor. If he leaves the judge’s panel, there will be another spot to fill.
“Some bosses believe it’s a mistake to have 2 women and a man on the panel, and a 4th male judge would be necessary.”
Brad Paisley, Keith Urban and Enrique Iglesias are in the running, TMZ reports.
