A source has revealed that Nicki Minaj has been routinely late to the set of American Idol since they started taping. Viewers were shocked when Nicki showed up 13 minutes late to a live show last week. A source told RadarOnline, "Nicki has ALWAYS been late. Even back during the audition phases she showed up anywhere from an hour or two past call time, pushing all of the auditions back and angering the other judges." The source continued, "Not only was she always late, but she always had a huge entourage with her and was rude to the contestants and their families, refusing to talk with them. And she wouldn't allow anyone to take pictures of her, or with her." Nicki The source said that during Hollywood, Nicki held up auditions for more than two hours. The source explained, "Hollywood week was already miserable enough because contestants had to wait in the auditorium and watch everyone audition one by one, with only an hour lunch break - but Nicki didn't help matters. After the lunch break one day everyone was waiting to audition and the judges all showed up together two and a half hours late and it was because of Nicki. All of the families had to wait outside the holding room, so they didn't know what was going on that whole time until Nicki and her entourage finally showed up. She never showed up before 11 a.m."
