August 22nd, 2012 1:07pm EDT

Mariah Carey Mariah Carey is the newest judge on American Idol, but allegedly that is not stopping her from making some diva demands - especially on who joins her at the judge's table.

TMZ reports that the star was angered by American Idol producers when they told her they were considering Nicki Minaj as a fellow judge - so she hung up the phone with a slam mid-conversation. Allegedly Carey wants to be the only female judge and was disturbed that a younger woman would be joining her.

Despite this, US Weekly says the deal for Minaj is extremely close.

Minaj had promised her fans a surprise the other day, and it was assumed she would be officially announcing her spot on Idol. However, fans were disapointed when it turned out to be a reveal of her upcoming perfume.
