The 9 Craziest Celebrity Confrontations Of The 2000s!

When it comes to confrontations in Hollywood, too many celebrities like to do it publicly. Rather than privately discuss their issues, some celebrities take to Twitter, go to the club or have it out in front of the paparazzi. We have created a list of 9 of the craziest celebrity confrontations of all time!

9. Rihanna and Ciara

Rihanna and Ciara exchanged insults via Twitter back in 2011. Ciara was on “Fashion Police” and said that she had an unpleasant run-in with the RiRi. Rihanna didn’t take it well and responded on Twitter with, “My bad Ci, did I forget to tip you?” When asked about the feud during an interview, Ciara said “I think she’s nuts right now! Like whatevers going on because for me it doesn’t make any sense. I don’t have beef with anybody, but I’m not going to be disrespected either. I wish her well. I don’t know what her problem is. She has a lot of good things going on with herself. A lot of good things I’ve always said I’ve been happy for her. I don’t get it. I really don’t, but I wish her well. I wish her positivity.”

3. Sinead O’Connor and Miley Cyrus

Sinead O’Connor and Miley Cyrus had a very public feud last year, which began with O’Connor writing the young singer an open letter about her “Wrecking Ball” video. Cyrus had said that O’Connor’s video for “Nothing Compares 2 U” inspired her video, which worried the Irish singer-songwriter. She warned young Cyrus about the music industry, saying that it will “prostitute [her] for all [she] is worth.” Cyrus didn’t like that, so she shot back on Twitter with, “Before Amanda Bynes…. There was….” displaying a shot of O’Connor’s Twitter account with a tweet of hers where she asks for help.

2. Tom Cruise and Brooke Shields

Tom Cruise lashed out at Brooke Shields back in 2005 for using antidepressants to treat her postpartum depression. The actor called the actress “irresponsible” and said that “she doesn’t understand the history of psychiatry.” Shields didn’t take Cruise’s abuse lying down. She responded by saying, “Tom should stick to saving the world from aliens and let women who are experiencing postpartum depression decide what treatment options are best for them.” Touché!
