Biggest Celebrity Feuds and Falling Outs In Hollywood
Andrew Parker - July 24, 2019

Hollywood is a small industry full of people with huge egos, so it’s no surprise that celebrities sometimes have conflicts with one another. Whether it’s real or just the media’s interest to pit celebrities against each other for stories and headlines, the bad blood between these stars may never end. From Kanye West vs. Wiz Khalifa to Paris Hilton vs. Nicole Richie, take a look at the most heated celebrity feuds and find out where they stand today.


Katy Perry vs. Taylor Swift



The reason: Backup dancers 

When Taylor Swift released her mega-hit Bad Blood and confirmed it was about a fellow female singer, who is her “straight-up enemy”, many fans wondered who the mystery singer was. The question was answered when Katy Perry tweeted the day after the interview was published: “Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing”. The feud was reportedly about backup dancers who left Swift’s tour for Perry’s. However, as of May 2018, it appears as if the feud is over. Katy Perry sent Swift a literal olive branch congratulating the beginning of her Reputation Stadium Tour.

Justin Bieber vs. Orlando Bloom



The reason: Teasing with the exes  

Justin Bieber and Orlando Bloom’s rivalry began way back in 2012. That year, Bieber met Bloom’s then-wife, Miranda Kerr, and was reportedly very flirty with her. It continued when Bloom was later photographed very close with Selena Gomez, Bieber’s ex-girlfriend. The feud hit its climax in 2014 when the two met in Ibiza, and things got physical. The actor tried to hit the Canadian singer, reportedly after Bieber said he had been intimate with Kerr when she was still with Bloom. The day after the incident, Bieber uploaded to Instagram a photo of Bloom crying and a photo of Kerr in a bikini, the latter was eventually deleted.

Joan Rivers vs. Gwyneth Paltrow



The reason: Criticism on Fashion Police 

When asked which star gave her a hard time about her jokes on the Fashion Police, Joan Rivers said: “The worst criticism was, ugh, Gwyneth Paltrow. She came and yelled at us but she stood up. She can’t sit down ‘cause she’s got a stick up her rear end”. Paltrow didn’t remain quiet and when asked about her beauty routine in 2013 by Harper’s Bazaar, she pledged to avoid Botox saying: ”I won’t do Botox again, because I looked crazy. I looked like Joan Rivers”.

Current Status: Will never be over


Madonna vs. Lady Gaga



The reason: Song royalties

The feud between Lady Gaga and Madonna started back in 2011. Immediately after the release of Lady Gaga’s Born This Way, critics noticed similarities to Madonna’s Express Yourself. Madonna was displeased with the Lady Gaga’s hit, calling the song “reductive”. It seems the two have settled their dispute, as Madonna posted a picture of the two sharing a hug after Gaga’s win at the Oscars.
