A new report has alleged that Nicki Minaj will become a judge on "American Idol."

At least two sources have come forward to state that Nicki Minaj will be a judge on the next season of "American Idol." One source has stated that the singer's deal has been 100 percent cofirmed.

"I'm not sure the deal is completely done yet, but yes, she is definitely doing it," the first source said in a report to Us Weekly magazine. "A few more slight things to sign off on but it is happening."

A second source, however, has insisted that Minaj's contract is a done deal. The source alleged that the 29 year-old was "100% confirmed to judge American Idol." However representatives for both Minaj and Fox have failed to back the rumors.

The report comes just a day after Minaj was forced to cancel a show over the weekend, which caused a battle on Twitter between Minaj and a few dissatisfied fans.

Minaj ignored doctor's orders and performed on Aug. 14 in New York despite having "bruised vocal cords." But after the performance, the singer's condition had become worse, prompting her to cancel a future show.

"As a result [of that performance], the [cord] has gotten worse. After her most recent xray the doctor advises she rest her voice for a few more days," Minaj's representatives said in an email to MTV.

The cancelled performances included the two-day "V Festival," which was to take place in England over the weekend. While the singer was apologetic for her absence, she still received a number of angry tweets, prompting her to retaliate back.

"I am so thankful to my true fans who understand WHY I couldn't play#VFestival & WHY I can't play Dublin. Absolutely gutted," the singer tweeted on Monday morning. "However, if u have anything negative to say to me, please #EatS---AndDie - I am human."

The singer continued the rant for some time, with others fans interspersing and defending her need to take a break.
