It’s not uncommon for people to have disputes with each other, this happens all the time, especially for celebrities. While celebrities bask in the luxury of being rich and famous, they have their share of problems just like everyone else. From Twitter disputes, to conflict over music, to slander, these celebrities have proved to have some serious issues with each other. Some of these feuds have escalated to extreme levels to the point of breakups, lawsuits and even some injuries.
Some of the most infamous celebrity feuds include the American Idol beef with Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, Drake and Chris Brown’s bar fight, and Joseline’s feud with the whole cast of Love and Hip Hop. Let’s now check out 15 celebrity feuds that got completely out of hand.
15. Drake vs. Chris Brown
Chris Brown is no stranger to conflict and has been in the media throughout the years. It’s no secret that Brown had a physical altercation with Rihanna back in 2009, which led to him being charged with felony battery and domestic violence. The fight broke out between the two while inside of a Lamborghini that Brown had rented. Once Brown received a text message from another woman, the claws came out. Rihanna threw the car keys out the window and in response, Brown allegedly beat and choked the singer. Rihanna suffered multiple injuries and Brown was released on $50,000 bail.
As bad as this incident was, a feud that got even more out of hand was the physical altercation with Brown and Drake at a New York City bar. The fight started after Drake responded to Brown’s peace offering with a note that read “I’m still f***ing Rihanna.” A group of five people who were part of Drake’s entourage indulged in a brawl which resulted in Brown being cracked in the face with a bottle. Brown’s bodyguard’s head was split open and other bystanders were hit with flying glass. Ingrid Gutierrez said, “I was sitting right next to Chris Brown after he sent Drake the bottle, his entourage approached him and they exchanged f-you’s. Chris told them to bounce and all of a sudden, someone tries to swing at Chris and mills and a lot of other guys in Drake’s entourage start throwing bottles at our table.”
14. Floyd Mayweather vs. 50 Cent
50 Cent has also been involved in multiple feuds including his feud with Rick Ross. The feud between 50 Cent and Mayweather has been going on for quite some time now. Floyd mentioned that 50 was no longer relevant and in turn, 50 Cent offered $750 thousand if Mayweather could simply read one page of Harry Potter. Mayweather responded with an offer of $1 million if 50 Cent could actually get his son to say he loves him. In an interview, 50 explained why he feuded with Mayweather. 50 said, “My younger brother happens to be the best fighter in the world. He can make $200 million in 36 minutes. How do you tell him what to do? You don’t. Sometimes, he’s not right. You’ll tell him, You’re not right.’ And then, you have that argument until he starts to look at it and say, ‘He was right.’” 50 also said, “People around Mayweather are afraid to bite the hand that feeds them and become yes men.”
13. Joseline vs. Cast of Love and Hip Hop
At a Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta reunion in 2014, a violent brawl erupted after Benzino called out Joseline and Stevie about allegedly using drugs. Joseline simply could not keep her hands to herself that night. During the fight between Benzino and Stevie, Joseline went ahead and attacked Althea. Joseline allegedly knocked her in the face and even yanked out her weave. Joseline continued on to Tammy (Waka Flocka’s fiancé) by pulling out her ponytail. The fight got even more violent when Deb (Wacka Flocka’s mother) got involved and started knocking Joseline in the head and pulling out her weave. If there wasn’t enough hair pulling and weave yanking, Joseline pushed Mimi down the stairs after being kicked off set.
12. Nick Cannon vs. Mariah Carey
After the dynamic duo separated in August 2014, the pair officially filed for divorce in December 2015. Even though Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have children together, it did not stop them from being involved in a bitter feud. Her song “Infinity” released in 2015 allegedly ripped into Cannon by attacking his fame and money. Her lyrics included “Talkin ‘bout you’re mad, could it be that you just lost the best you’ve ever head. Boy you actin’ so corny like Fritos, wouldn’t have none of that without me though.” In an interview, Cannon was asked if he would walk down the aisle again, and his response was: “I highly doubt it.” He was apparently enjoying his independence as a single man and said, “Not to say that I was bogged down [in my marriage], because I wasn’t by any means, but I like being able to make my own decisions and come and go as I please.”
11. Chris Brown vs. Karreuche Tran
Chris Brown may still be heated about the split from Karreuche Tran and even took it out on her manager, Jacob York. Brown allegedly believed that Jacob was the reason for the breakup and was the person who encouraged her to leave. However, Jacob said that’s absurd, since Brown had a child behind Tran’s back. He also said, “I think Chris needs to keep me out of their personal life and take actions for what he did.”
The exes also took jabs at each other on social media. Tran posted, “You’re calling me a b—- yet you’re screaming my name in a song about getting back together? Can all this petty s— stop, it is so unnecessary. You have a beautiful daughter and so much to live for. Live your life and be positive. Brown responded with a post that read, “Ok Miss Tran, I wish you the most successful career ever! But I promise you this, once this ‘talent’ you have starts to simmer, so will everyone else including Jacob.”
10. Karrueche Tran vs. The Beyhive
The Beyhive ripped into Karreuche after she made a comment about Blue Ivy’s hair. Tran made a joke about Ivy’s curls while guest hosting on BET’s 106 & Park. She said, “I really did wake up like this because my parents didn’t comb my hair. Sorry, Blue! I love you!” Things didn’t go in Tran’s favor once the Beyhive got involved and unleashed fury. Tran said that she even received hate mail and death threats. Tran apologized and explained that she was reading from a script. She said, I am a huge Beyonce fan and I love Blue Ivy. I apologize for the comment and I wish I had the chance to review the revised script so that I could have avoided participating in that segment. I love that Blue is able to wear her natural hair.”
9. K. Michelle vs. Tamar Braxton
The feud between Tamar Braxton and K. Michelle ignited in 2013 after the Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta premiere. Braxton posted a Tweet that read: “Oh have fun and let this girl sell her fairytale.” It was assumed that she was taking a shot at K. Michelle who previously stated that she suffered physical abuse at the hands of her ex-boyfriend. Well, Braxton happens to be friends with the ex’s wife and shade was thrown from both directions.
The following year, Braxton took another shot at K. Michelle over a blond wig she wore on BET’s 106 & Park. Braxton Tweeted: “Damn! I lost my wig.” In 2014, K. Michelle revealed the real cause for the beef. She said, “The root of that situation is I just remember loving her and liking her on TV. This was before I was on Love and Hip Hop and I went on her page one day and she was following me. And I was like ‘Oh ok, I love her.’ You know, just somebody I could rock with. And when I was going through the whole situation on Love and Hip Hop with the Toya Wright thing and all of that type-thing, she hopped in it like everyone else did.” K. Michelle continued on to say, “And I said, ‘I like Toni better any way.’”
8. Nicki Minaj vs. Miley Cyrus
The feud between Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj spilled over into the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. Minaj accepted her award and after her speech, she abruptly turned to Cyrus and said, “Back to this b—- who had a lot to say about me the other day in the press. Miley what’s good?” While many initially thought that this was staged, it actually was not and Minaj was genuinely angry with Cyrus. A source said. “The anger was very real and not a pre-planned bit at all.” Since this was real, both of the ladies were fired up, especially when they went backstage. The anger was so intense that the MTV team was worried about tensions between the two. A source said the team, “Had to be sure Nicki and Miley didn’t cross paths for the rest of the evening because they were legitimately worried about a confrontation happening.”
7. Amber Rose & Blac Chyna vs. Tyga
The feud started in 2015 when Blac Chyna posted a photo on Instagram of a Audemar Piguet watch which was a gift from Tyga. In response, Kylie Jenner posted a photo wearing the same watch. When Chyna realized that Jenner was driving around in the same G-Wagon Mercedes that Tyga requested she gave back when they broke up, she threw some shade at Tyga in a video saying: “All I’m saying is I wanna see receipts.” Amber Rose also got involved and took shots at Jenner in a radio interview, saying, “Tyga should be ashamed of himself. He has a beautiful woman and a baby that he left for a 16-year-old who just turned 17.” Eventually things seemed to have calmed down until Tyga shared a post on Instagram that read: “When the hating don’t work they start telling lies. #WhereYoFerarriTho?” Apparently Tyga was biting back at Chyna for claiming he leased the car he gave to Kylie. Rose posted a photo of a Ferrari she owns with a caption that read, “She don’t need a Ferrari she can drive mine #BFFGoals.” However, Tyga came back with, “We drive our own ships peanut head.”
6. Kim Kardashian vs. Naya Rivera
After Kim Kardashian’s revealing photoshoot that appeared on the cover of Paper Magazine, Naya Rivera posted a comment on Kim’s Instagram page. She said, “I normally don’t. But you’re someone’s mother.” Eventually, Rivera posted a photo with the caption that read, “#instagramgotmeintrouble.” The shade throwing resulted in Rivera being slammed by those defending Kardashian. Jonathan Cheban said on his blog, “Who the f— is Naya to throw in her meaningless comments?” Simon Huck said, “How sad! I met you two years ago at Kim’s birthday party in Vegas. We had all flown in for it, you included. Stop the hate.”
Rivera wasn’t just throwing shade at Kardashian, she has been seemingly copying her look throughout the years. During Paris Fashion Week in 2014, Kim K wore a white lace dress and in early 2015, Rivera was seen wearing a similar dress. In another instance, Kardashian wore a Donna Karan Wrap Effect dress in 2013, and just a year later, Rivera was seen wearing the same dress while co-hosting on The View. She even looks like Kim K.
5. Katy Perry vs. Taylor Swift
Originally, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift were friends until they started to drift away from each other, especially after Perry began dating Swift’s ex, John Mayer. In 2013, Perry Tweeted, “I knew you were truffle when you walked in.” Swift responded with, “@katyperry please never change.” It became more obvious that there was a rift between Swift and Perry after her “Bad Blood” single was released and from the sound of it, it was pretty angry. Later, Swift admitted that “Bad Blood” was about a fellow female artist. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Swift said, “For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, ‘Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?’” Then, as of 2014, the other female artist crossed boundaries. Perry said, “She did something so horrible, I was like, ‘Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies.’ And it wasn’t even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. You would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It’s awkward, and I don’t like it.”
4. Justin Bieber vs. Orlando Bloom
The feud began when allegations arouse that Miranda Kerr, Orlando Bloom’s ex-wife had an affair with Justin Bieber, which is the reason for the divorce. The situation escalated when Bloom was at Cipriani restaurant when he ran into Bieber. While in the video, you cannot see Bloom throw a swing, but Bieber was heard screaming while Bloom was heard saying “What’s up, b—-?” There are multiple versions of the story. In one of the stories, it was said that Bieber extended his hand to Bloom, which was refused. Bieber asked what the issue was and Bloom responded with, “Miranda.” Bieber attempted to walk away, but Bloom took a swing at him. In another version of the story, it was said that Bieber made a comment that he slept with his wife and that’s when Bloom swung.
3. Nancy Grace vs. Seth Rogen
The war of words between Nancy Grace and Seth Rogen began after Grace posted a slew of Tweets regarding a man who shot and killed his wife after he used marijuana. Grace Tweeted, “Cops say daddy eats marijuana & goes crazy. He shoots his wife in the head while she pleads with 9-1-1 for help! #PotToBlame?” She also said, “How many people must die before this stops?” Rogen was not too pleased with Grace’s comments and did not hesitate to share his thoughts. Rogen Tweeted, “@NancyGraceHLN you are a f—ing dumba–.” Grace responded to Rogen with, “Hi Seth! Thx for watching!”
2. Brandi Glanville vs. Joanna Krupa
The Real Housewives feud started after Brandi Glanville made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. During her appearance, she made an accusation that Joanna Krupa slept with Mohamed Hadid, who happens to be Yolanda Foster’s ex-husband. Glanville said, “Joanna had sex with Mohamed while he was still married to Yolanda. It was one of many affairs. It’s not the exact situation. But Mohamed and Yolanda are great now.” In response, Krupa Tweeted, “No wonder her husband left her.” Glanville had a pretty raunchy response by saying, “Well, Mohamed did tell me that her p—- smelled. It’s true! I’m not lying! And Lisa Vanderpump was there when he said it. Sorry, b—-. I win!”
The feud escalated into a lawsuit being filed by Krupa against Glanville for slander. In the documents filed, Krupa claimed that Glanville, “knowingly made false and malicious statements that Mrs. Krupa had sexual relations with Mohamed Hadid while Mr. Hadid was in an intact marriage to Yolanda Foster.”
1. Mariah Carey vs. Nicki Minaj
Both women have strong personalities and that was proven on a season of American Idol. The feud started when Carey undermined Minaj’s critique of a contestant who sang “Someone To Watch Over Me.” Minaj was pleased with the singer’s voice and mentioned that she could see her performing on Broadway. Minaj said, “Something you should work and concentrate on is your high notes as when you hit them, you seem to get into it and your face and your body transforms.” Carey adamantly disagreed and referred to Minaj as “certain judges” while saying that she thinks she doesn’t need a “happy Disney princess moment.” Carey pointed her finger at Minaj saying: “Oh excuse me, the music will cut me off.” Minaj responded with, “Clean your ears out, clean your ears out.” Carey fired back with “Darling, let me express this to her as a singer. Just sing from your heart every time and your notes will continue to shine regardless of the dirt that gets splattered around you.” At one point, Minaj escalated into having a curse filled rant saying, “I told them, I’m not f—ing putting up with her f—ing highness over there.” After things escalated even further to the point that Minaj allegedly threatened Carey with a gun, Carey decided that it was best to hire extra security.
