Both Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez will perform at the American Music Awards tonight and due to the fact that the two singers have been reportedly at war for a long time, people are wondering whether or not they will have a showdown at the event. Apparently, the chances of that happening are very small to none.
One source shared with HollywoodLife that we should not ‘expect any kind of Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, type run-in from Jennifer and Mariah, because they’re both way too classy for that. Jennifer actually has no issue with Mariah, it has always been the other way around, but that is all down to Tommy Mottola, Mariah’s ex, he is the engineer of their supposed feud.’
‘Tommy pitted Jennifer against Mariah when she was a new signing to Sony records, basically because he and Mariah weren’t on good terms, at all, following their divorce, and he used J.Lo. as a way to stick it to Mariah. It has basically grown from there and became a ‘thing’ in the media, but in reality, it has really not,’ the insider explained.
Still, the rumors that they do have a ‘thing’ started way back in the early 2000s when Carey told an interviewer she did not know who J.Lo. was.
Lopez has actually laughed off the speculations that they are feuding in the past and joked that Mariah is just ‘forgetful.’
Still, it seems like everybody is paying attention to them at the AMAs this year.
The source dished that ‘It’s likely the AMAs will engineer it so there is no potential embarrassing run-ins between the two publicly, like on the red carpet, but if they cross paths they will be civil, and there certainly will not be any kind of catfight, or b**chiness going on.’
