There are a lot of things that seem to be pretty great about being a celebrity. The general public oftentimes looks up to you and wants nothing more than to gain your favor in any way. As a result, companies go out of their way, a lot of the time, to give you things so you’ll like them. When you venture out into the world, you can usually rest assured that you’ll have no problem receiving a table at your favorite restaurant or that you’ll have to wait in line, like the rest of us schmucks.
Keeping that in mind, it makes perfect sense that before too long, you could develop an ego and come to expect people to agree to your every whim. Even if you manage to keep your world in perspective, sometimes the people you interact with are jerks, and it’s only human to want to take your frustration out on people from time to time. With this list, we’ll be looking at some of the most surprising or severe fights that famous people have gotten into with one another or unknown entities.
Reality show brawls were not up for consideration as we can’t attest to how contrived they may be. You may have found out about some of these fights since everyone’s base of knowledge is different but we’re betting most of these brawls will take you by surprise.
15 Will Smith vs Record Promoter
14 Lindsay Lohan vs Dina Lohan
13 Jay-Z vs Solange Knowles
From one family fight to another. It is an old comedy trope that we all dread dealing with our in-laws, and though we certainly don’t believe that is actually the case, it certainly seems like Jay-Z might feel that way. One night in 2014 while the megastar rapper was travelling in an elevator with his wife Beyoncé and his sister-in-law Solange Knowles, he found himself suddenly being hit and kicked. Solange was quickly pulled off by a bodyguard after Jay opted only to fend off her blows and Beyoncé stood by, not reacting at all.
12 Mike Tyson vs Mitch 'Blood' Green
The WBC Heavyweight Champion at the time, Mike Tyson was considered by many to the baddest man on the planet for very good reasons. A lightning fast boxer with incredible power, when Iron Mike was booked to fight Mitch “Blood” Green most people thought it was a foregone conclusion that Tyson would triumph. Turns out they were right, although the fight lasted the full ten rounds, the judges scored the bout heavily in the champions favour.
11 Chris Brown vs Drake
Let’s be honest, Chris Brown is a douchebag. Although his music career, amazingly enough, managed to survive the bad publicity that came when he beat up his girlfriend Rihanna, due in part to his attempts to play nice, the man’s temper hasn’t subsided. On the night of June 14th, 2012, while the two performers were at a nightclub, a brawl broke out between the two and their entourages, after Drake reportedly began yelling at Chris.
10 Russell Crowe vs the World
This entry is unlike any of the others here as it doesn’t contain a single incident. Instead, we’re here to tell you about the fact that Russell Crowe, a famous and extremely acclaimed actor has a checkered past of violence that was remarkable enough to be mocked by South Park. Fighting in hotels, a “fashionable Japanese restaurant”, and verbally abusing a producer at the BAFTAs it is safe to say that you shouldn’t piss this dude off.
9 Paris Hilton vs Shanna Moakler and later Shannen Doherty
8 Bjork vs Reporter
7 George Clooney vs David O. Russell
6 Floyd Mayweather vs T.I.
5 Noel Gallagher vs Liam Gallagher
These two men have come together to create wonderful music and take part in a sibling rivalry of epic proportions. Despite a very long and well documented history of arguments, they still managed to work together for 18 years before they self-destructed, putting an end to their band, Oasis, in 2009. According to Noel, the beginning of the end came when Liam began a clothes line and demanded it be promoted as part of the band’s tour, while Noel thought the company should pay for the tour then. This caused the tension to ratchet up even more than it had been before.
4 Katt Williams vs Teenager
Famed comedian Katt Williams can be incredibly funny but in recent years his comedy chops have unfortunately been overshadowed by his controversial actions. Charged multiple times since 2006, for carrying a concealed firearm, burglary, criminal trespass, child endangerment, and other illegal actions, the man has become a train wreck.
3 Liam and Chris Hemsworth vs. Random Dudes
2 Prince vs Sinead O'Connor
1 Axl Rose vs Tommy Hilfiger
We never would have thought that an egomaniacal, dread-wearing rock vocalist like Axl Rose would ever be linked with a fashion icon like Tommy Hilfiger. Even crazier to consider, Axl, a man who for a time seemed like a professional riot inciter, due to his tantrums causing concert cancellations said, "It was the most surreal thing…that's ever happened to me in my life." According to reports, the issue began when Rose moved the drink of Tommy’s girlfriend. A seemingly innocuous event, we’re not sure if Tommy thought he’d disrespected her or done something to the drink, but Hilfiger, according to Axl, “just kept smacking me."
