From Twitter fights to face-to-face quarrels, these infamous celebrity feuds makes you rethink picking a fight with them. While others have resolved their differences, others are still at it.
#1 Drake vs. Chris Brown
The feud between Drake and Chris Brown because of Rihanna. Their fight went into its climactic point in June 2012 at a New York nightclub when Brown sent a liquor bottler to the table of Drake. Drake reportedly sent the bottle back with a note suggesting that he was still at it with Rihanna. A small fight started, with Brown receiving a rather big gash on his chin and 5 others injured.
#2 Eminem vs. Mariah Carey
The relationship between Eminem and Mariah Carey started quite amicably, when they started dating in 2001. They decided to break up for what Eminem said was personality differences. Things went sour when Carey slighted him publicly in her song “Clown” from her 2002 “Charmbracelet” album. She even copied him during her 2003 tour. It was only 2 years later that Eminem bashed him on his own tour. It became even more personal when Eminem attacked Carey and her then new husband Nick Cannon in “Bagpipes from Baghdad.” Carey retaliated through the “Obsessed” music video, wherein she played a man who liked a lot like Eminem.
#3 Kanye West vs. Jimmy Kimmel
Kanye West in the fall of 2013 hit Jimmy Kimmel in Twitter after Kimmel broadcasted a parody of West during a BBC interview, with West being played by a kid. He tweeted in all caps: “Should I do a spoof about your face or you f—king Ben Affleck #NoDisrespecttoBenAfflek and #AllDisrespecttoJimmyKimmel.” They eventually ended their feud in a 30-minute interview in Kimmel’s late night show.
#4 Donald Trump vs. Rosie O’Donnell
This is one nasty feud. Donald Trump and Rosie O’Donnell began their sparring after O’Donnell called out Trump for not firing the 2006 Miss U.S.A. after she admitted to using drugs. Trump came back and started calling O’Donnell a “loser,” among others. They still have heated exchanges on Twitter time and time again.
#5 Tom Cruise vs. Brooke Shields
Brooke Shields was publicly criticized by Tom Cruise for using medication for her postpartum depression and not treating it with just exercise and vitamins (get a clue, Tom). In response to Cruise, Shields said, “Tom should stick to saving the world from aliens and let women who are experiencing postpartum depression decide what treatment options are best for them.” You go, Brooke!
#6 Tupac Shakur vs. The Notorious B.I.G.
The most famous feud in hip-hop would probably be between Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. What started as a friendship turned into a rivalry in 1994 and rapidly became bitter. Shakur was even shot in New York City. Each began taking jabs at each other through their songs, dubbing it as an East Coast vs. West Coast. Their rivalry ended in gun violence, with Shakur shot and killed in 1996 and B.I.G. gunned down 6 short months after.
#7 Winona Ryder vs. Gwyneth Paltrow
It is reported that Winona Ryder and Gwyneth Paltrow broke their friendly ties when Paltrow stole a role from her so-called best friend. Paltrow was said to have seen the “Shakespeare in Love” script in Ryder’s house and convinced producers to sign her up instead of her friend. To worsen the situation, Paltrow won an Oscar for her role in the film. Don’t worry Winona, let these most cringe-worthy, pretentious, and annoying quotes from Paltrow get you by.
#8 Nene Leakes vs. Star Jones
In 2011, it was very entertaining to watch Nene Leakes and Star Jones exchange words in the “Celebrity Apprentice.” They famously bashed each other on and off the set. Leakes, talking to Wendy Williams even said, “Star is a trip—like, she is very special. No seriously—I wouldn’t spit on Star if she was on fire.” Tell us how you really feel!
#9 Elton John vs. Madonna
For almost 10 years, Elton John has been taking jabs at Madonna and her performances—from her singing of the 007 theme song (which he dubbed the worst one ever) to her alleged lip synching on tour.

#10 Perez Hilton vs. Will.I.Am
In 2009, Perez Hilton and Will.I.Am got into a tense altercation in a Toronto nightclub. Will.I.Am confronted Hilton and told him not to write about the Black Eyed Peas anymore. Hilton proceeded to call the singer a “f—-t.” Then he was punched by Black Eyed Peas manager, Polo Molina.
#11 Brandi Glanville vs. LeAnn Rimes
Since 2009, Brandi Glanville and LeAnn Rimes have been going at it when Rimes had a publicly-outed affair with Eddie Cibrian, Glanville’s then husband. Even though Rimes and Cibrian would marry eventually, the women still have harsh feelings for one another. Glanville said, “I don’t think we’ll be friends, but I hope we can co-exist peacefully.”
#12 Mariah Carey vs. Nicki Minaj
We thought it was all just publicity. But things were indeed tense and catty between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj. Through the 2012 to 2013 season of “American Idol,” they exchanged petty remarks and side eyes. In one of the auditions, there was a leaked audio with Minaj shouting, “Every time you patronize me, I’m going to take it back, and if you’ve got a f—king problem, handle it. I told them I’m not f—kin’ putting up with her f—kin’ highness over there.” Minaj also threatened to shoot Carey. Because of this, Carey got extra security because of the “unsafe” working environment.
#13 Porsha Williams vs. Kenya Moore
In the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion, Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore got it on. Bickering the entire season, the two exchanged insults in the reunion show. After Moore taunted Williams with a megaphone, Williams took her down. This resulted in an assault charge.
#14 Candy Spelling vs. Tori Spelling
Before the death of the Spelling matriarch, Aaron, Candy Spelling and Tori Spelling had a falling out. Even though they patched things up during the first pregnancy of Tori, Candy wrote in her memoir in 2014 that her children needed to take responsibility for their own lives. She wrote, “Tori and I are a work in progress and probably always will be. I notice that the more my self-esteem expands, the less patience I have for the pursuit cycle she creates when she shuts me out. We have a pattern and until we can break it hand-in-hand, this is going to be the little dance she and I do together.”
#15 Dina Lohan vs. Michael Lohan
Since Lindsay Lohan was a child star, Dina Lohan and Michael Lohan have been fighting. Dina says that Michael raped and physically abused her. On the other hand, Michael indicated that Dina did cocaine and abused alcohol. Both also blame each other for the troubled life of Lindsay. In 2007, they ended their marriage after breaking up and reuniting over a couple of instances.
