Twitter is still the most popular playground for celebs to hurl insults at each other. Twitter beef between celebrities in 140 characters or less is real. Where else will we have a front row seat to our favorite celebs battling each other with egos blaring, battling it out on our favorite social media platform.
Here are my top 10 twitter beefs of feuding celebrities in 2012:
K. Michelle vs Toya Wright
“Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” K. Michelle who loves shaking the table took to Twitter to voice her dislike for her ex, MempHitz’s wife, Toya Wright. K. let it be known that Memp Memph beat her and misspent her recording budget. Toya defended her man and basically said K. Michelle had no proof that it ever happened and that she is crazy.
K fired back at Toya, tweeting, “@ToyaWright be careful for what u ask for! I got yo proof it’s on yo finger # my budget paid for that. I need proof That u have a GED” and “@ToyaWright I’m not crazy enough to not have custody of my son, but I am crazy enough to slap the sh*t out of u. On sight!” She deleted the tweets, but you know your girl got the screen grabs!
Tamar Braxton vs K. Michelle
These two went at it for two rounds during the year. This beef started when Tamar and K. got into it on Twitter after Tamar made a back-handed comment about K. Michelle’s revelation that Toya Wright’s husband Memphitz stole the advance from her recording contract and physically assaulted her. This beef led to Tamar issuing a “Cease And Desist” order over comments and threats she alleges that K. made. Things were quiet for a minute and then Tamar threw shade at K. after watching her rehash the story on an episode of “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta”. Tamar.com tweeted the following, which you guessed it has since been deleted:
#Enough! @kmichelle tell all your fans the TRUTH about why u call my friends & @MonaScottYoung 4 me to get on the phone & say u r sorry! i”ve NEVER said anything to or about you and just like I know YOU know! so if u r not going to be HONEST I’ll do it for you! it so sad cuz i would NEVER LET ANYONE THINK OF U the way you have let “people” not @kmichelle think of me. ITS TIME 2 DO THE”right thing”#CHURCH ITS NOT A BEEF! I JUST WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW I WAS A FAN OF @KMICHELLE & WHEN MY NAME WAS BROUGHT INTO THIS I WAS HURT! #THATSALL #ITS SAD
Tamar then had a change of heart and blamed the deleted tweet on hubby Vince. She tweeted:
Tamar vs Jill Scott
Tamar was mad extra.com at Jilly from Philly and went in on a simple comment which had nothing to do with Tamar.com. Jill took to twitter to comment on Mary Mary’s reality show in which she tweeted:
“Please watch Mary Mary on WE tv. Finally a real representation. Yay!!!!!!!!!”
For some reason that didn’t sit right with Tamar and she fired back at the Philadelphia native saying “”Of freakin what? *gets in her feelings*” before adding, “She won’t go there*she won’t go there*she won’t go there* she won’t go there*she prays and waits*”.
Jill then fired back at Tamar, pretty much ending the beef by simply tweeting: “U can’t be speaking to me”.
Somehow I don’t see these two being girls anytime soon!
Rihanna vs Karrueche Tran
This beef was brewing all year long as these two ladies fought to be Chris Brown’s main chick. The subliminal shade from ex-girlfriend Rihanna and then current gf Karrueche were off the charts in 2012. As we welcomed the new year, a video surfaced of Karrueche, appearing to mock Rihanna’s Caribbean accent. Karrueche defended her actions by tweeting:
Later that week, Karrueche tweeted yet another subliminal tweet:
Then Rihanna hit back with:
Then came the infamous “Birthday Cake (remix)” and “Turn Up The Music (remix),” which let the world know the former couple was surely getting back together.
Karrueche let her followers know her feelings about this new found “friendship.”
Rihanna then hit back with the following:
These two went back and forth throughout the year and we all know who won in the end! True love really does prevail!
Joan Rivers vs Rihanna
The claws came out when outspoken comic mocked the pop star over her candid interview with Oprah Winfrey.
“Rihanna confessed to Oprah Winfrey that she still loves Chris Brown. Idiot! Now it’s MY turn to slap her,” River tweeted.
Rihanna quickly replied: “@Joan_Rivers wow u really do get slow when you’re old huh?”
Rivers, 79, fired back by tweeting, “Honey, @Rihanna, everyone knows: If he hit you once, he’ll hit you again. Read the statistics. PS – Love to have you on Fashion Police!”
Not sure if Rihanna will accept an invitation to appear on Rivers’ cable show.
The Dream vs Christina Milian
This former couple really don’t like each other and Christina called out her ex in an interview during Essence Music Festival weekend, in which she basically called her ex husband a deadbeat dad because he doesn’t spend quality time with their two-year-old daughter Violet. The Dream caught wind of Christina’s criticism of his parenting skills (or lack thereof…), and fired back at his ex-wife on Twitter, calling her a gold digger and a has-been:
“Love You too. Those 15 minutes are almost up though boo!”
“Publicity Stunt. Are people really this Stupid. If I had a serious issue concerning care for a loved one. I’d call the source…”
“She had a plan to come up before she met me I called her on it. Go digging for gold u might find it.. But its hard to carry that much weight.”
Christina chimed in with:
“Don’t listen to lies from LIARS. I wish sometimes I could really let everyone know what I know.”
“StayBlessed. I got God on my side. All I need.”
“What u r reading is only a taste of the trash in my email. I have them all saved. Eventually u stop responding to stupidity. & stop caring”
“Get Some Class…”
Can’t we all just get along!
Rihanna vs Piers Morgan
Rihanna is known for her every changing hairstyle and manages to pull off every single do like no other celeb. The Bajan beauty has worn countless hairdos in every color in the rainbow ranging from long and luxurious to short and spiky cuts. So when she debuted her new short do at this year MTV VMAs we were like you better werk that new do Rihanna. But CNN’s host Piers Morgan was not in agreement with the masses and called her out on Twitter. Piers tweeted his dislike of the new haircut during the Paralympics closing ceremony and Rihanna who is not one to bite her tongue let him have it.
That Bajan tongue cuts like a knife!
En Vogue vs En Vogue
The in-fighting between one of our favorite girl groups En Vogue led to some serious Twitter beef that saw the ladies slapping each other with lawsuits! After years of revolving members trying to replace Dawn Robinson and the group bringing Robinson back into the fold in 2010 for a 20th anniversary tour and album, the ladies were beefing again in 2012!
The remaining members then shot back with the following:
“Dear EnVogue fans,
In regards to the recent twitter and face book posts alleging that Terry and Cindy have replaced Maxine Jones with Rhona, we would like to respond. Terry and Cindy are not replacing Maxine Jones. We have however asked Rhona to fill in temporarily so that we can continue to bring live shows to our fans. Thus far, Rhona has only done three shows with us since June 2012. The group has always added someone whenever a member has been unable or unwilling to perform or has left the group. Terry and I have not kicked Maxine out of the group. There are always two sides to a story and many internal facts that you the fans aren’t hearing about. In an effort to not air dirty laundry, or appear to point the finger at anyone, we respectfully choose to remain silent on the internal issues. We appreciate you the fans continuing to support Envogue individually, and as a whole.
Cindy and Terry”
Can we say messy!!
Chris Brown vs Jenny Johnson
Chris Brown aka “the king of tweet and delete” really needs to stay off Twitter and this beef was probably the most vulgar of all in 2012. Breezy had the ultimate meltdown thanks to comedy writer Jenny Johnson. While most of us were still in our post-turkey coma haze, Chris and the comedian went in on each other which eventually led to death threats from his fans.
“I look old as f**k! I’m only 23 …”
Johnson replied: “I know! Being a worthless piece of shit can really age a person.”
Cue Chris’ meltdown:
“take them teeth out when u Sucking my d**k HOE.” Then: “I should fart while ur giving me top.” “mom says hello… She told me not to shart in ur mouth, wanted me to s**t right on the retina.” “Diaries of a thirsty bitch…Ur life sucks so much ass…Don’t run for support now… Lol. Ur a comedic writer!!! If u can take a d**k, u can take a joke.”
The tirade ended with: “Just ask Rihanna if she mad??????”
This is when you should just hit the unfollow button!!!
Toya vs TPain
Toya Wright really is the ultimate ride or die chick! The reality star and Memphitz bride went off when T-Pain’s “Behind the Music Special” premiered on VH1 and her new husband did not get the credit he deserved. In case you missed it, Memphitz was responsible for discovering and signing T-Pain to Jive Records.
Toya Tweeted, ‘Fuck T-Pain’ and you guessed it…quickly deleted it.
Her followers chimed in with:
Then Memphitz chimed in with his cryptic Tweets which clearly was aimed at T-Pain and big upping his wife for going to bat for him:
T-Pain had to have the last word:
Ladies, sometimes we really need to fall back and let the men handle their biz!
See you in 2013!
