Celebrity Feuds Of September 2016
Two major celebrity feuds were reheated in September, while an unexpected beef broke out between two unlikely stars. Check out the recap of last month’s celeb fights below!
1. Wiz Khalifa v. Amber Rose: The exes have been frenemies since their split in 2014, repeatedly fighting and making up. The latest drama went down in early September. The peace between the former spouses was shattered after Rose quipped that, following a bad threesome experience, “maybe I’ll call my baby daddy tonight” to make herself feel better. Khalifa, the father of her son Sebastian, did not appreciate being a last resort. “Not here for your rebound after your threesome. Only peace and love @DaRealAmberRose,” he tweeted, going on to write, “If I were to say ‘i f*cked two bitches last week and it was wack. I think Ima just call my baby’s mom.’ Would you feel flattered?” Rose in turn responded, “I’m getting publicly Slut shamed…Again. For the same things he does all the time…..Great.” The rapper later said he was “bummed out” by the situation.”
2. Kim Kardashian v. Taylor Swift: The reality star and the singer have spent much of 2016 battling, thanks to Kardashian’s husband Kanye West and his controversial song, “Famous.” The tension seemed to be dying down the last couple of months, at least until Kardashian spoke about the issue in two recent interviews. Talking to Wonderland, she actually denied bashing Swift. “I never publicly talk bad about people. I still don’t feel like I have,” said Kardashian, insisting, “There was no shade.” Then just last week, Kardashian told Billboard that she “just wanted to protect my husband.” She further told the magazine she’s “over it” and “don’t want to talk about her anymore.” None of the comments sat well with Swifties, who called out Kardashian for first not taking responsibility for her role in the drama, and then declaring the feud “done,” despite continuing to discuss it. Swift herself didn’t publicly comment about it at all this month.
3. Lena Dunham v. Odell Beckham Jr: The “Girls” star surprisingly slammed the football player in a September interview for her Lenny newsletter, accusing him of making sexual judgments about her whey were at the Met Gala earlier this year. But Dunham never actually spoke to Beckham, and made assumptions based on what she thought he was thinking. Dunham was subsequently ripped on social media, particularly after she said her comments were just her of “sense of humor” and the “outrage machine” was turning it into controversy. She ultimately apologized, however, saying it was “unfair” to “ascribe misogynistic thoughts to someone I don’t know AT ALL.” For his part, Beckham took the high road, saying, “I never want any problems with anybody in this world.”
Aside from those dust-ups, there were a few non-feuds wrongly reported by the tabloids. And just two days ago, Bryce Dallas Howard shut down a Chris Pratt fight rumor herself. Gossip Cop will continue to keep track of the real and faux celebrity feuds as we head into October.
