The problem with Twitter is that it’s public. So if you’re involved in a spat with someone, everyone can see it. It’s even worse when there are celebrities involved – though it makes essential gossip fodder for us.
Here are 7 of the best Twitter celebrity feuds from the last year.
Amber Rose and…well…all of the Kardashians
It began this time last year when Amber said in an interview that Tyga shouldn’t be dating Kylie Jenner, who she said was “a child”. Khloe asked her via Twitter to stop talking about them in interviews, but it didn’t end there. Amber took offense and started to Tweet lots of offensive things, culminating in calling Kim a “whore”. We think all of them should take a look at themselves, quite frankly!
2. Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson
It certainly looks like there’s no love lost between these two, even though their fans hope that the One Direction split wasn’t acrimonious. It all started when Malik shared a photo from Naughty Boy Music that looked very much like it had been photoshopped a bit. Then Louis Tomlinson made fun of the photo and it resulted in this delightfully bitchy tweet from Zayn.
3. Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj
The two got into a spat when Swift assumed a tweet that Minaj made about the entertainment industry only celebrating women with very slim bodies, was about her. It wasn’t, and she was actually making a wider point about how we view women, but it seemed to be momentarily lost on Swift. She did eventually apologise for the misunderstanding…but..Minaj came out looking better.
4. Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards
The feud between the divorced couple ramped up a gear on Father’s Day last year when Sheen tweeted “Brooke M is a sexy rok star whom I adore D Richards a heretic washed up piglet Shame pile Happy Father’s Day!!!” He then made it much, much worse with a bizarre ranty, open letter to the media. Richards kept her response classy, saying “Happy Dad’s Day! @charliesheen have a great trip in Mexico! Kids were disappointed u weren’t here for it- Hey we’ll celebrate when u r back!” But it’s clear there’s little love lost.
5. Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa
This is a bizarre feud, which seemed to kick off last month. When Kanye announced the new title of his album “Waves”, it looked like Wiz was replying and taking some pot shots at it. Kayne seemed to respond to these with a rant of weird stream of consciousness tweets that made him look a bit super silly.
6. LeAnn Rimes and Brandi Glanville
This is quite nasty really. LeAnn had an affair with Brandi’s husband Eddie Cibrian – she and Ed are now split up. However, the tweets exchanged between the two have been very explosive and the latest in a long line of rants happened when LeAnn made a tweet called Brandi and Cibrian’s children “her boys”. Not a good move, LeAnn.
7. Kelly Osborne and Giuliana Rancic
These two locked heads after Rancic made comments on the Fashion Police show that were misconstrued, regarding Zendaya’s dreadlocks. She insisted she was not being racist and was simply referring to her bohemian look. Osborne refused to take that and left the show two days later. The row rumbled on for a long time with Rancic continually forced to defend herself and Osborne eventually tweeting out “Liars ALWAYS get caught”.
