"How dare this little girl!" she told The Daily. "If I had been Mariah I would have walked over to Nicki and strangled her to death right there."

However, Nicks has now expressed regret for her comments in a statement to the New York Daily News.

"I want to apologise for my remarks about Nicki Minaj's behaviour toward Mariah Carey which I said during a long and exhausting day of interviews," she said.

"It was very out of character for me and I deeply regret what I said. I feel very protective toward Mariah Carey, who has gone through many difficulties in her life, and I spoke without thinking."



Nicks added: "I think all artists should be respectful toward one another and that includes me. I am truly sorry."

American Idol bosses recently attempted to play down the reported feud between Carey and Minaj by insisting that "production is going extremely well".
