Feuds are common between colleagues in different places of work, between competing companies, between siblings in homes, and in many other settings where people have to interact on a regular or semi-regular basis. Therefore, the element of 'crossing paths' is usually important in fueling a feud, and the expectation here would be that with people who rarely encounter each other, there's not much chance of generating a feud, right?
In addition, it is almost impossible for people in any form of a relationship to live without misunderstanding each other at some point, and the level of maturity between the parties is usually what determines how long a misunderstanding can continue. The reasons for having a misunderstanding between people can range from very serious and legitimate, to very stupid and senseless claims that are not even worth the effort of holding a grudge. Therefore, another expectation we could have here is that mature people who do not have the opportunity to interact so often do not have the need or the desire to get into a feud or stay in one, especially if it falls in the category of stupid and senseless.
However, against all odds, it is very common to come across athletes and celebrities getting into some of the stupidest and most senseless of feuds. At times, it is a wonder why these two groups of very rich and famous people even cross paths, and why they feel the need to handle their meaningless feuds in the public's eye. Since the feuds that these celebrities and athletes get themselves into are at times very entertaining, here are 10 that are worth writing about:

10 Chris Brown vs. CM Punk
When it comes to music and dance, Chris Brown is a master of the stage and an exceptional entertainer. Few musicians will get to the level that Chris Brown is at, and his talent, creativity, and great voice have a lot to do with it. Phillip Jack Brooks, aka CM Punk, on the other hand, is an expert martial artist and a former professional wrestling superstar, who has one of the longest serving histories as a WWE champion. These two are professionals in their fields, but they were engaged in a silly feud on different online platforms. Chris Brown alleged that CM Punk took steroids, which is clearly not the case. CM Punk responded by calling Chris Brown a cowardly little boy, in relation to Chris hitting Rihanna. If this feud were to turn physical, no form of dancing or singing would be enough to save Chris from CM Punk's serious kicks and punches.
9 Lil Wayne vs. Chris Bosh/Miami Heat
Lil Wayne needs no introduction because his rapping career has made him very rich and famous. However, not everyone is fond of Lil Wayne, owing to his history of drugs, violence, and bad language. Chris Bosh is a professional basketball player for the Miami Heat, and he and his family are not fond of Lil Wayne at all. In February 2013, Wayne was escorted by security out of a game between the Miami Heat and the LA Lakers, and he claimed that the reason for his dismissal and ban from future matches was that he previously had sexual relations with Bosh's wife. Miami Heat confirmed that Wayne's dismissal was because of displaying gun gestures to a fan during the game. Although Wayne was referring to a time before Bosh had married his wife, Wayne's comments were silly, insensitive, and inappropriate in every way. Wayne is therefore not on good terms with the Miami Heat, Chris Bosh or even Bosh's wife.
8 Lance Armstrong vs. Conan O'Brien
Before Lance Armstrong was charged with using illicit performance enhancing substances, he was one of the greatest cyclists the world had ever seen. Lance won the Tour de France seven times in succession, from 1999 to 2005, a feat that no one in the world has managed to accomplish to this day. Conan O'Brien, on the other hand, is a writer, comedian, voice actor and TV host, who claimed that the time he interviewed Lance Armstrong was the longest day of his life. Lance did not hesitate to respond and describe the interview as a bit freaky because of the 'legs shaving' questions O'Brien asked. The silly feud did not go much farther from there, since O'Brien claimed that he was drunk and just needed tips on how to get smoother legs.
7 Mike Tyson vs. LL Cool J
Mike Tyson is a former boxing heavyweight champion of the world, a title that should be enough to make people think twice about picking a fight with him. However, actor and successful musician LL Cool J is not one to back down from a war of words even with a boxer who can easily knock him out. This feud began with Tyson belittling LL Cool J's rapping ability and claiming that he used his body to compensate for his rapping weakness, and also that almost all of Cool J's fans wear heels. Using a diss track, Cool J struck back by calling the boxing champion a convicted rapist. Cool J also claimed that Tyson's jail term must have left him with bruises in his private areas. This is a truly ridiculous feud.
6 Brandon Jennings vs. The Game
Brandon Jennings is a professional NBA basketball player, playing the point guard position for the Detroit Pistons. He is a great basketballer, but he is not on good terms with The Game. Jayceon Terrell Taylor, aka The Game, is a rapper and an actor, who is famous especially in the West Coast and for being Dr. Dre's protégé. These two apparently had a scuffle in a club, where Brandon was celebrating his birthday, and The Game did not like how the birthday boy was handling the microphone. These two exchanged words and apparently got into a fight that required the club security to settle them down. Regardless of whose fault it was, things should not have gone that far.
5 Joanna Krupa vs. Terrell Owens
Joanna Krupa is a Polish American model and actress, known for appearing on shows like Dancing with the Stars and The Real Housewives of Miami. Terrell Owens is a professional American Football player, with an amazing record in the NFL. These two were surprisingly involved in a feud after their performance in an obstacle course on ABC's "The Superstars". Krupa blamed Owens for their poor performance, claiming that they did not win because of him. Owens on the other hand reacted to her comments by saying that he felt bad for her boyfriend. This exchange did not seem mature, and Krupa refusing to shake hands with Owens was even more immature. At least their performance on the following challenge day was great, thanks to Owens.
4 Lil Wayne vs. Dez Bryant
The famous rapper Lil Wayne is not a stranger to feuds and scuffles, and his reasons for violently crossing paths with athletes are as numerous as the stars. Dez Bryant, on the other hand, is a professional NFL wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys. Apparently, the reason for the scuffle is that Bryant owed approximately $50,000 to a company linked to Lil Wayne, and the amount was past its due date with over a year. Blasting Bryant over private financial matters was hardly the best way to handle the situation, although now we know that rappers take paying bills very seriously.
3 Kobe and Vanessa Bryant vs. Drake
Kobe Bryant is one of the greatest basket ballers of all time. After surpassing Michael Jordan on the NBA's all-time scoring list, Bryant has earned himself a place in the NBA Hall of Fame. Aubrey Drake Graham, on the other hand, is a Canadian-born actor, rapper, and songwriter, who is popularly known as Drake. Following Vanessa Bryant's filing for divorce, Drake mentioned her and Kobe in a really ugly way in one of his tracks. Vanessa gave him a piece of her mind via Instagram, and Kobe later stood up for his wife and defended their marriage. Drake was quick to apologize and the feud is no longer an issue between them.
2 Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. 50 Cent
Floyd Maywether Jr. is not only one of the best boxers in the world today, but he is also the highest paid athlete in the world. On the other hand, 50 Cent is a renowned rapper, and he has received global fame and recognition for his work. These two used to be good friends in the past, to the extent of running a business together. However, recently they have been at each other with every opportunity they get. For example, Mayweather had referred to 50 Cent as a male groupie who loved to hold his championship belts to feel special. Later in 2014, 50 Cent refused to participate in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge with his explanation being that he would donate $75,000 to charity if Mayweather would prove that he was not illiterate.
1 Nick Young and Iggy Azalea vs. Snoop Dogg
Nick Young is professional Basketball player in the NBA, and he plays the positions of small forward or shooting guard for the L.A. Lakers. Snoop Dogg on the other hand is a rapper, actor, and songwriter with an extremely successful music career. Snoop Dogg started this scuffle by posting a meme of what was supposed to be Iggy Azalea without makeup. Iggy did not take this well and she fired back at Snoop. Nick Young also stepped in to defend his girlfriend and referred to Snoop as a SnoopLion going through midlife crisis. Snoop later apologized and hopefully the feud will end there.
