On Thursday's The View, Walters revealed that she had spoken with Carey, 42, before the show, and disclosed that the singer had hired extra security after Minaj, 29, was overheard saying while walking off set, "If I had a gun, I'd shoot a b****."
Though Carey is very concerned and not "comfortable emotionally," Walters said she doesn't actually think anything will happen but can't take a chance. "Nicki said after the meeting, 'I love you but we may fight again.' Mariah said, 'No I will not,'" Walters read.
Meanwhile, according to Carey's comments, the other new judge Keith Urban just wants everything to be normal.
Carey told Walters that they've been in meetings with the producers since the altercation, and are set to have a photo shoot later today.
The singer's hope is that everyone will act in a professional manner.
