Rihanna and Beyonce were not fighting at the press conference for Tidal nor do they hate each other, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the claims. In fact, a source on the scene tells us the two were joking with each other a few times. Oh, there’s more.

According to MediaTakeOut, “The two music QUEENS downright HATE EACH OTHER.” The unreliable webloid even states that “Rihanna REFUSED to stand next to Beyonce” at the Tidal launch on Monday That’s funny because Gossip Cop has obtained a photo of the two standing right next to each other, with their arms around one another (see right). Whoops!

Not satisfied with wrongly claiming Rihanna and Beyonce were “fighting,” and that the “Umbrella” singer refused to stand next to Beyonce, the webloid further dug a hole for itself by alleging that at the press conference, “Beyonce and Rihanna did NOT SAY A WORD to each other.” That, too, is entirely untrue. They spoke and shared laughs together, an eyewitness tells Gossip Cop.

Of course, MediaTakeOut is the same outlet that Gossip Cop corrected just a few days ago when it erroneously reported that Rihanna’s “B*tch Better Have My Money” was a Beyonce diss song. The site has printed an outstanding number of lies about the two artists, including that Beyonce faked her pregnancy with Blue Ivy and that Rihanna has posed for Playboy.

Similarly, this latest tall tale about fighting and refusing to pose together at the Tidal press conference is not true. A source, who’s actually close to both Rihanna and Beyonce, tells Gossip Cop that stories portraying them as enemies are “all bulls*t.” Our insider adds that fans would be surprised by how often they hang out together and how close they are.
