Drake and Chris Brown
It all comes down to a girl. Whatâs her name? Rihanna, of course.
As the story goes, on a summerâs night in New York City, Ririâs two man friends and occasional featured artists were each enjoying their respective evenings at Manhattan night club W.i.P., when Brown decided he would send a bottle of Champaign over to Drakeâs crew. To show his gratitude, the Young Money millionaire from Toronto took the time to write a thoughtful thank you note, the contents of which allegedly lasted only once sentence long: ââI am fâking the love of your life.â
The rest is a little hazy, factually speaking. At some point, bottles started flying, injuries occurred â Brown was cut on the chin, NBA star Tony Parker was involved somehow. Soon, lawsuits and insults were raining down like Brownâs fists on Rihannaâs face, which is to say, fast and furious.
Since the dust settled, little more than a peep has come out of either. But itâs safe to say the two sides have been anything but amicable since the brawl.
Instead, each are deferring to their lawyers while tending to more important matters, like dueting with Justin Bieber and using Twitter to tell comedians all about defecation and eyeballs.
Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey
It started as the âare they or arenât theyâ feud, but Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey proved that they werenât just trying to sweep their diva-fuelled dispute under the (over-priced) rug.
During the preliminary round of American Idol, the two judges were rumoured to be at each otherâs throats, but vehemently denied the entire affair. âHow can we feud in two days? I think a feud takes a little longer,â Carey told reporters at a press conference in New York at the beginning of the season.
Well, it didnât take long for those lies to come unraveled. The rap star was later caught on film losing it on âher f**king highnessâ Mariah Carey, during an Idol taping.
On the tape, Minaj can be heard saying, âIâm not gonna sit here every f**king minute to have you come down and harass me every minute everyday.â
According to TMZ, Minaj also threatened to relieve Mimi of her consciousness, yelling âIâm gonna knock you out!â
This was one of the many feuds that the cotton-candy haired rapper encountered in 2012. Letâs not forget the tension between Nicki and Stevie Nicks, or the most recent clash between Nicki and Steven Tyler.
