Drake and Chris Brown

It all comes down to a girl. What’s her name? Rihanna, of course.

As the story goes, on a summer’s night in New York City, Riri’s 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 Drake’s 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: “”I am f–king the love of your life.”

The rest is a little hazy, factually speaking. At some point, bottles started flying, injuries occurred – Brown was cut on the chin, NBA star Tony Parker was involved somehow. Soon, lawsuits and insults were raining down like Brown’s fists on Rihanna’s face, which is to say, fast and furious.

Since the dust settled, little more than a peep has come out of either. But it’s 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 “are they or aren’t they” feud, but Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey proved that they weren’t 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 other’s throats, but vehemently denied the entire affair. “How can we feud in two days? I think a feud takes a little longer,” Carey told reporters at a press conference in New York at the beginning of the season.

Well, it didn’t take long for those lies to come unraveled. The rap star was later caught on film losing it on “her f**king highness” Mariah Carey, during an Idol taping.

On the tape, Minaj can be heard saying, “I’m not gonna sit here every f**king minute to have you come down and harass me every minute everyday.”

According to TMZ, Minaj also threatened to relieve Mimi of her consciousness, yelling “I’m gonna knock you out!”

This was one of the many feuds that the cotton-candy haired rapper encountered in 2012. Let’s not forget the tension between Nicki and Stevie Nicks, or the most recent clash between Nicki and Steven Tyler.
