Looks like Mariah Carey isn’t taking any chances when it comes to re-teaming with Nicki Minaj in Louisiana.

Following the heated, expletive-laden argument between the two American Idol judges during auditions in Charlotte, NC, Mariah appears to be taking some extra precautions.

TMZ reports that Mimi showed up to a Baton Rouge, Louisiana photo shoot yesterday with a big security squad plus a police escort on tap.

In a lengthy Twitter rant yesterday, Nicki laid waste to Mariah’s claims that the she-rapper threatened to shoot the “Touch My Body” singer during their fight, but clearly the songstress wasn’t convinced she was out of harm’s way.

For what it’s worth, the two reportedly went on to have a peaceful shoot, where they even took some pics together. Nicki and Mariah start judging a new round of auditions tomorrow, so we’ll see how long the détente between the two divas lasts!
