There was a lot of celebrity beef this year! Everyone from Khloe Kardashian and Jordyn Woods to 50 Cent and Lala Kent publicly feuded on social media, and some fights were more brutal than others. Take a look at a roundup of the biggest social media feuds of 2019 in the gallery below!
Khloe, 35, went after Jordyn, 22, on Twitter following the model's bombshell Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett Smith. During the interview, Jordyn claimed that she had repeatedly tried to apologize to Khloe for kissing Tristan Thompson at a party in February. "Why are you lying @jordynwoods?? If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story. BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up!" Khloe tweeted.
Evelyn Lozada and Ogom "OG" Chijindu took their Basketball Wives drama to social media after the reunion taping. OG allegedly shared several messages about Evelyn on her accounts, and Evelyn seemingly responded by posting a message about haters to her Instagram. "Nobody watches you harder than the people that can't stand you," Evelyn's message read, and it was accompanied by a picture of a laughing orangutan. OG fired back and accused Evelyn of being a racist, which prompted Evelyn to file a defamation lawsuit. "Wow, so now Black women are monkeys? Everyone boycott this trashbox you are disgusting," she wrote on Instagram. "And there it is ... you show your true colors you racist bigot. You called Cece Gutierrez 'Ling Ling,' Jackie Christie a 'cockroach' & now me a 'monkey.' May God take care of you well ... @vh1 NOT OK," she added on Twitter.
50 Cent trolled Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent and her fiancé Randall Emmett in April. The rapper claimed that Randall owed him a million dollars and he gave the producer a deadline to pay up, before proceeding to release the desperate text messages they traded in the days following. They eventually settled the matter, but Lala reignited the feud when she went on Watch What Happens Live and boasted about "having receipts" to prove she "dinged" the Power star's ego during their war of words. "What's wrong with this h**? Now don't say she didn't ask for it when I start tripping," 50 responded.
Taylor Swift's bad blood with Scooter Braun boiled over in November when the songstress put him and Big Machine Records CEO Scott Borchetta on blast for allegedly controlling her ability to perform her music by owning her masters. "Scott Borchetta told my team that they’ll allow me to use my music only if I do these things: If I agree to not re-record copycat versions of my songs next year (which is something I’m both legally allowed to do and looking forward to) and also told my team that I need to stop talking about him and Scooter Braun. I feel very strongly that sharing what is happening to me could change the awareness level for other artists and potentially help them avoid a similar fate. The message being sent to me is very clear. Basically, be a good little girl and shut up. Or you’ll be punished," she wrote in a lengthy Instagram rant. Scooter declared that he would not engage in mud slinging on such a public forum. "I just think we live in a time of toxic division, and of people thinking that social media is the appropriate place to air out on each other and not have conversations. I don’t like politicians doing it. I don’t like anybody doing it. If that means that I’ve got to be the bad guy longer, I’ll be the bad guy longer, but I’m not going to participate," Scooter said at the 2019 Entertainment Industry Conference on Thursday, November 21.
Fashion blogger Arielle Charnas blocked actress Amanda Seyfried on social media after the Mamma Mia star praised a comment her friend wrote on the Something Navy creator's bikini photo. Arielle posted the snapshot celebrate how “proud” she was of her figure after giving birth to two kids, but Amanda's pal took issue with the fact that she didn't acknowledge her privilege. "Totally fine that you're privileged and thin, good for you (I am too-ish!). Got no problem with either of those things. BUT if you don't acknowledge how your wealth made your workouts/body possible, you're just perpetuating the patriarchal (totally unrealistic) notion that mothers should 'bounce back' after childbirth, an impossibility for anyone that can't afford ample childcare," Amanda's friend wrote in the comments section on Arielle's post. Arielle claimed she was being "bullied" and Amanda ended up apologizing.
Bow Wow body shamed Wendy Williams on Twitter in July. He posted a paparazzi photo of the TV personality in a bikini along with several emojis that seemingly mocked her appearance. "They say it's a hot girl summer," he tweeted. Wendy responded to the shade on an episode of The Wendy Williams Show in the days that followed. "Please refrain from your body shame. You don't have to like it, but someone does," she said.
Moby boasted about how he allegedly dated Natalie Portman when he was 33 and she was 20 in his memoir Then It Fell Apart. Natalie claimed she was actually 18 at the time and insisted they never dated. "I was surprised to hear that he characterized the very short time that I knew him as dating because my recollection is a much older man being creepy with me when I just had graduated high school,” the actress told Harper’s Bazaar UK. Moby doubled down on Instagram on May 22 and claimed they had a "brief romantic history" before issuing an apology on May 28. "I’m going to go away for awhile. But before I do I want to apologize again, and to say clearly that all of this has been my own fault. I am the one who released the book without showing it to the people I wrote about. I’m the one who posted defensively and arrogantly. I’m the one who behaved inconsiderately and disrespectfully, both in 2019 and in 1999. There is obviously no one else to blame but me," he wrote in an Instagram post.
Stephanie Pratt's social media feuds with brother Spencer Pratt and his wife Heidi Pratt have taken place almost too many times to count. The latest one happened in July when Stephanie hopped on Instagram to accuse the couple of starting the infamous rumors about a non-existent Lauren Conrad sex tape. "I’m drained from this year. So happy to be back home in London, where evil siblings don’t exist ... but instead the MOST lovely people in the world — you guys are my family these days. I am so grateful, it makes my heart hurt. Thank you for making me feel like I belong somewhere (Spencer often screamed that everyone hates me, is fake nice to me and to go back to London because no one wants me here). Omg and Heidi — I have no words for how evil you truly are — you had no choice but to admit all of the lies you’ve been spewing about me was for a magazine cover. And for real WE ALL KNOW WHAT YOU DID 10 years ago. You awful human being. And to your BEST FRIEND? You are truly a hideous person. No wonder you don’t have 1 friend (your nanny doesn’t count — you pay her)," Stephanie wrote in her lengthy rant. Heidi opted to respond with a simple Bible quote.
Bella Thorne revealed on Twitter in June that she had been hacked and blackmailed with her own nude photos, so she decided to release them herself. Whoopi Goldberg chastised the actress on the June 17 episode of The View and criticized her for taking nude photos in the first place. "If you’re famous, I don’t care how old you are. You don’t take nude pictures of yourself. Once you take that picture, it goes into the cloud and it’s available to any hacker who wants it, and if you don’t know that in 2019 that this is an issue, I’m sorry. You don’t get to do that," the TV personality said. Bella called Whoopi's remarks "disgusting" in her response on Instagram. "I am offended for every person who has committed suicide for someone leaking their nudes. Your view on this matter is honestly awful and I hope you change your mindset as you are on a show talking to young girls," Bella wrote.
Nick Cannon stood up for his ex Mariah Carey after Eminem rapped that the songstress was a "nut job" that had Nick "neutered" on Fat Joe's song titled "Lord Above." Nick called Eminem a "grandpa" and invited him to settle the score on Wild N Out in an Instagram post before releasing his own diss track called "The Invitation." In the tune, Nick accused Eminem of having a secret sex tape. "I heard your chauffeur got a video of you suckin’ a c**k. You paid him off, then laid him off, now who really the O.P.P.?” Nick rapped on one verse. Eminem reacted on Twitter and demanded an apology. "U mad bro? Stop lying on my d**k. I never even had a chauffeur, you bougie f**k. I demand an apology Nicholas, you’ve made my gardener so jealous!" the Detroit native tweeted. "@Eminem I won!!!! This has been fun now back to your regularly scheduled programs," Nick tweeted back.
Tami Roman released a diss track on Instagram targeting Basketball Wives costar Jennifer Williams in August. Tami was upset that Jennifer claimed Tami's stylist tried — and failed — to return a stained dress to the store for her. Tami accused Jennifer of sleeping with Michael Jordan among other things, and added the hashtag #ShowMeADeclinedReceipt to her post. "A hit dog will holla … We got the receipts boo," Jennifer wrote in an Instagram Story shortly after.
After photographs surfaced of Nicole Murphy kissing Lela Rochon's husband Antoine Fuqua on vacation in Italy in July, LisaRaye McCoy insinuated that the model had also tried to get with her husband Michael Misick during the time the two were married. "Gurl @nikimurphy you went after @iamlelarochon husband too? ... SMH so wrong ... again!" the Player's Club actress wrote on Instagram. Nicole went on The Wendy Williams Show on September 24 and denied breaking up LisaRaye's marriage. Just days later, LisaRaye appeared on the program and threatened to release receipts. "When Nicole got here and said I lied was like wait a minute, you should plead the fifth because pleading the fifth would’ve been like ... now you are outwardly saying I’m lying. You know we had a conversation about this, come talk to me. Don’t make me do it with the receipts, don’t make me do it," LisaRaye warned.
Nick Carter got a restraining order against younger brother Aaron Carter after the "I Want Candy" singer allegedly voiced his desire to kill Nick’s pregnant wife Lauren Kitt and their then-unborn baby in September. Nick revealed that he had no choice but to file for legal action after Aaron allegedly told their sister Angel that he had thoughts about harming Nick's family. "After careful consideration, my sister Angel and I regret that we were required to seek a restraining order against our brother Aaron today. In light of Aaron’s increasingly alarming behavior and his recent confessions that he harbors thoughts and intentions of killing my pregnant wife and unborn child, we were left with no choice but to take every measure possible to protect ourselves and our family. We love our brother and truly hope he gets the proper treatment he needs before any harm comes to himself or anyone else," the Backstreet Boys singer tweeted. Aaron proceeded to retaliate on social media and accused Nick of bullying, sexually assaulting ex-girlfriends, and physically abusing ex Paris Hilton. "So my brother just got a a restraining order against me. And I was just served lol. Take care @nickcarter we’re done for life. I haven’t seen him in four years. And I don’t intend. Leave me alone. You should send a cease and desist while you’re at it too. I am astounded at the accusations being made against me and I do not wish harm to anyone, especially my family. All I ask is for my family to leave me alone. This is blood. Not love. I will never be around you and I don’t want to be around you. I am the one who said I’m done then you send me this!? Ok. Stop trying to get me 5150’d before I file a harassment suit myself Nick I have the $," Aaron wrote in a series of tweets.
The View's Sunny Hostin claimed that Real Housewives of New York City alum Bethenny Frankel yelled at her son on the beach while discussing the SkinnyGirl mogul's drama with LuAnn de Lesseps on an episode of the hit daytime show. "I don’t know Bethenny, but I have seen her behave like that on the beach. I have seen that kind of behavior when Bethenny yelled at my child at the beach. It was in the middle of the day. And my child was about 7, playing with other children at about 2 o’clock in the afternoon and she said that her child was napping inside with the window open, and that our children were being too loud on the beach. She yelled at my child, and I went out there and stood in front of my child, and I yelled at her and told her that adults should speak to adults. Bethenny knows I’m telling the truth," Sunny said. Bethenny suggested that Sunny was under the influence due to her recollection of the incident during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live on June 20, and Sunny blasted her on Twitter after seeing the interview. "Not surprising that a reality TV personality who yells and bullies little kids on a beach lies. But I have witnesses. Oh and Bethenny — defamation ain’t cute," Sunny tweeted, referring to Bethenny's allegations.
Shahs of Sunset stars and former besties Mercedes "MJ" Javid and Reza Farahan's friendship effectively ended when their social media feud began. The problems started when MJ claimed that her Shahs costars didn't visit her in the hospital after she almost died giving birth to her son Shams Francis. Reza shared screenshots of their text conversations and put MJ on blast on Instagram on May 20, for allegedly lying about her costars making no effort to visit her in the hospital as she suffered life threatening complications from her delivery. Reza claimed that MJ's husband Tommy Feight threatened him and vandalized his home, and he was granted a restraining order on May 22. "The whole Shahs cast will realize what's going and how evil she is. No one visited her in the hospital. It had nothing to do with me. I was totally cool with her until she came for me and then she sent her criminal thug husband to my house to destroy and vandalize my property and threaten my life," Reza said in a subsequent Instagram Live story. Reza's restraining order against Tommy was extended for three years in October and he and MJ are still not on speaking terms.
Lady Gaga got into a Twitter feud with Amanda Knox after the singer compared fame to “prison" in October. "Fame is prison," the songstress tweeted to her 80 million followers. "I hear you, but ... prison is prison," Amanda, 32, shot back. Amanda spent years of her life in an Italian jail after she was accused of murdering her roommate Meredith Kercher while studying abroad in Perugia, Italy. Amanda was acquitted of Meredith’s murder on October 3, 2011 but was retried in 2013. She was found guilty in 2014 but her conviction ended up being overturned in 2015.
