Nicki Minaj's recent behavior on "American Idol" seemed to draw the ire of reality television star and singer Tamar Braxton recently.
Braxton, the star of "Tamar and Vince" and "Braxton Family Values" recently spoke out about Minaj's behavior on the national singing competition. During the first live show on season 12 of "American Idol" Wednesday, Minaj showed up to the televised show late.
However, Braxton was vocal about the 30-year-old rapper's behavior being unacceptable.
"I don't know, all I know is if Mariah is on time and J. Lo was never late, you don't be late. 'American Idol' has started at the same time for ten years," Braxton said during an appearance on "Anderson Live." "You don't be late. It's live television. Period."
While "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest let the world know that Minaj was stuck in traffic at the opening of the live performance show, the judge took to Twitter to let the world know why she was tardy for the live show.
"Stuck in traffic *sighs*," Minaj tweeted Wednesday.
While she did not arrive late during the live show on Thursday where the first elimination to the competition's top 10 finalists were announced, Minaj did threaten to walk away from the competition. Minaj left her seat at the judge's panel when gospel-singing contestant Curtis Finch Jr. did not receive enough votes from the public to make it to the next round of the singing competition.
"Are you kidding me," Minaj exclaimed on the show.

"Curtis, if you go home, I go home," Minaj told him on Thursday night's episode of "American Idol." I definitely think Curtis should not be in the bottom two ... I mean-- come on, America, are you kidding me?"
The rapper ultimately decided to continue her duties as a judge as Finch was forced to exit the competition after being voted off.
