It started when Ciara appeared alongside Joan Rivers on the Feb. 25 episode of E!’s “Fashion Police,” and she decided to critique Rihanna’s personality instead of her Brit Awards outfit.
“I ran into her recently at a party, and she wasn’t the nicest,” says Ciara. “It wasn’t the most pleasant run in.”
Rihanna, who apparently watches E!, immediately took to Twitter. “My bad ci,” she writes, “Did I 4get to tip u?” We can only assume this is some backhanded comment about how Ciara might have been working the party. Hey-O!
As of Feb. 26, the turbulent waters seem to have settled, possibly at the begging of their respective publicists. Both singers have issued apologies, though neither @tagged the other.
Rihanna was first to bury the hatchet, tweeting, “Ciara baby, I love u girl! U hurt my feelings real bad on TV! I’m heartbroken! That’s y I retaliated this way! So sorry! #letsmakeup.”
To which Ciara responded: “Rhi u know its always been love since day 1! Doing shows/everything. you threw me off in that party!
Apology accepted. Let’s chat in person.”
