Famous people aren’t known to solve their problems privately, so when celebrities beef it usually makes the news.
Aretha Franklin’s beef with Dionne Warwick recently made the news after the icon sent a fax to the AP about Warwick’s “libelous” comments regarding Franklin’s absence from Whitney Houston’s funeral. And, as wild and weird as this beef may be, there’s been crazier and messier feuds.
Here are some the shadiest, wildest, messiest celebrity feuds ever.
Azealia Banks is always beefing with someone, but when she crossed then 14-year-old actress Skai Jackson, she got the dragging of a lifetime. After trading barbs with the rapper on Twitter, most of which included making fun of Jackson’s age, the Disney actress told Banks, “That was corny! Go fix your edges before you come at me! #byenow Hide behind your weaves much?”
Aretha Franklin has beef with Dionne Warwick after the iconic singer alleged that Warwick had made “libelous” comments about statements made at Whitney Houston’s funeral. Seems Warwick may have shaded Franklin for not attending the funeral, also calling the singer Houston’s godmother. In a fax sent to AP, Franklin stated, “She blatantly lied on me… fully well knowing what she was doing.” Later when the two ran into each other at an event, Warwick asked for a hug and Franklin responded, “Oh hell no. You couldn’t be serious.” Franklin says she’s not looking for an apology and doesn’t really expect one. “I don’t care about her apology, at this point it isn’t about an apology, it’s about libel. We’ve never been friends and I don’t think that Dionne has ever liked me.”
During an interview with The Breakfast Club, Amber Rose made some very honest comments about Kylie Jenner’s relationship with Tyga, who dated and had a child with Rose’s bestie, Blac Chyna. “Kylie’s a baby. She needs to go to bed at 7 o’clock and relax. It’s ridiculous. Tyga should be ashamed of himself. That’s how I feel. For sure. He has a beautiful woman and a baby and left that for a 16-year-old who just turned 17.”
What should have been just a little spat, became a massive feud after Wiz Khalifa and Kanye West’s twitter beef escalated. West dragged in Amber Rose and her son with Wiz, Sebastian, and that’s when things got real. “Awww @kanyewest are u mad I’m not around to play in ur —- anymore?” Rose tweeted, adding, “Lol @kanyewest Now u wanna delete ur tweets cuz Muva has arrived?”
The two singers had beef back in 2011 after Ciara’s appearance on E!’s Fashion Police, durng which she told Joan Rivers that she didn’t think the Barbadian singer was very nice. RiRi didn’t take too kindly to Ciara’s comments and a Twitter feud ensued with Ri tweeting the iconic line, “Good luck with booking that stage you speak of.”
Azealia Banks and Nicki Minaj were bound to butt heads. So, when Minaj allegedly poked fun at the rapper in her mobile app, Banks fired off one of the most incredible reads ever, writing in a now-deleted Facebook post, “McDonalds sells a lot of burgers but no one is telling McDonalds that they’re the pinnacle of cuisine and taste. This is true for you.” Whew.
The beef between Meek Mill and Drake is well documented. And, while things have cooled down, the More Life rapper revealed on his OVO Sound station that the whole situation “was just embarrassing to witness,” adding, “You can ask Meek if he thought it was worth it and I’ll bet you he tells you ‘no.'”
The feud between MiMi and JLo seems to run deep, it’s also a bit one-sided. Mariah has been vocal about her disdain for Lopez, but the “If You Had My Love” singer has stayed pretty mum aside from a few very harmless barbs. Still, no matter how much shade gets thrown, nothing will top Mariah’s “I don’t know her” comment.
The beef between Nicki and Remy was pretty much the only topic of conversation in early 2017. The two had been subtly throwing shots for a while before Remy dropped “Shether,” the two going toe-to-toe before Remy ended it all.
This beef was, honestly, very unexpected. Lil Mo fired shots after Prince’s security allegedly shoved her at an event in order to clear a path for the icon, she added, “I don’t want to see him. I had to pee. This industry s–t is crazy. Erbody think they not human!!” The Purple One fired off a few shots of his own in a few since-deleted tweets, before adding, “I hope she know, none of her clothes match.”
The beef between the two has been squashed, but it all allegedly started when Tyra Banks first burst into the modeling world. The America’s Next Top Model showrunner extended an olive branch in 2005, inviting Naomi to her talk show to hash things out. The now iconic interview gave us many gems as Naomi flippantly responded to Tyra’s comments with, “I’ve never said that in my life,” “I don’t remember,” and “Do you have proof?”
Trina and Khloe have two thing in common: they’ve both dated French Montana and James Harden. However, Trina’s not really into sharing. When news broke that Harden and Kardashian were together, Trina tweeted, “Sloppy seconds.”
