From jabs on social media, to slander in articles or interviews, some celebrities have no problem taking their bad blood public. In 2019 especially, we’ve seen a number of stars squabble amongst themselves, and many of these conflicts have blown up to epic proportions.
These are the most intense celebrity feuds we’ve seen so far in 2019.
Taylor Swift, music mogul Scooter Braun and Big Machine Records founder Scott Borchetta made headlines in 2019.
There’s a lot of layers to the drama the unfolded in 2019 between Swift, Braun and Borchetta. When Borchetta signed over Big Machine Records, along with the rights to Swift’s entire music catalog, over to Braun, Swift was furious and claimed to have no prior knowledge of the sale.
“This is my worst case scenario,” Swift wrote on Tumblr, after the sale. “This is what happens when you sign a deal at fifteen to someone for whom the term ‘loyalty’ is clearly just a contractual concept. And when that man says ‘Music has value’, he means its value is beholden to men who had no part in creating it.”
However, Swift’s anger appeared to be incited by more than just the sale. She said Braun, along with his clients Justin Bieber and Kanye West, had participated in “bullying” her over the years.
“When I left my masters in Scott’s hands, I made peace with the fact that eventually he would sell them. Never in my worst nightmares did I imagine the buyer would be Scooter. Any time Scott Borchetta has heard the words ‘Scooter Braun’ escape my lips, it was when I was either crying or trying not to,” Swift wrote in her Tumblr post.
Lisa Vanderpump and the cast of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” feuded for most of Vanderpump’s final season.
In 2019, Vanderpump said the drama with her castmates was one of the biggest reasons she quit the show.
On the Fox talk show “RuPaul,” Vanderpump explained that she simply couldn’t take the divisiveness among her costars, especially after the never-ending PuppyGate drama that unfolded in the last season.
Even before Vanderpump announced her departure from the show, the star told her costars they could all “go f— themselves” in an interview. Needless to say, the drama with the “RHOBH” ladies marked one of the most intense celebrity feuds of 2019.
50 Cent and Wendy Williams went head-to-head for the majority of 2019.
Both 50 Cent and Wendy Williams have taken numerous shots at each other throughout 2019, each more vicious than the last. While there are few people that the “Candy Shop” singer doesn’t have issues with, he’s been especially hard on Williams.
Their beef may date back to years before 2019, but there was no shortage of drama between them recently.
Even after Wendy shared some kind words about the rapper on national television, he still wasn’t ready to call a truce. He shared a post and wrote: “what is this,” before adding: “ok we gonna let you in TYCOON next time but you can’t just be coming to my party’s wit no invite.”
Eminem and Justin Bieber had issues in 2019.
Eminem and Bieber, may be an unlikely feuding pair, but they sure had it out for each other this year when the “Sorry” singer took to Instagram with some shade about Marshall Mathers’ new music.
“I just like Ems flow but don’t like that he’s dissing new rappers,” Bieber wrote in a post, according to Esquire.”I like the new generation of rap he just doesn’t understand it.”
Tana Mongeau and Bella Thorne got into a Twitter spat earlier this year.
Tana Mongeau and Bella Thorne attempted to be friends following their 2019 split, but things turned ugly quickly, when their breakup drama was brought to Twitter.
“Tana and I are no longer good. She broke girl code I’m over it,” Thorne tweeted on July 17.
Tana responded by writing: “????? Imagine taking every time ur mad at me to Twitter but then telling ppl how much u care about me………………..wtf is this b :/”
Famed Youtuber and makeup guru James Charles fought with vlogger Tati Westbrook this year, and it wasn’t pretty.
In a very public video, Westbrook slammed Charles for supporting Sugar Bear Hair, a company that makes hair vitamins, that is in direct competition with Westbrook’s own vitamin line. Given that she’s been a long-time mentor to Charles, his endorsement of the company didn’t exactly sit well with her.
Charles issued a public apology, but that didn’t keep their online fight from being one of the most talked-about feuds on the internet for weeks.
Kylie Jenner and her best friend Jordyn Woods had a falling out in 2019.
After Kylie Jenner’s best friend, Jordyn Woods, kissed Khloe Kardashian’s then-boyfriend Tristan Thompson on the lips in February, the two women immediately ended their friendship.
The scandal shocked fans given Thompson’s long-standing history with Kardashian, but nothing was more surprising than seeing Jenner and Woods go their separate ways after years of friendship.
At the time, Kardashian even placed the blame for her breakup on Woods. “If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story. BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up!” she wrote in a tweet.
Why are you lying @jordynwoods ?? If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story. BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up!

Kardashian has since backtracked on her comments, and put the onus on Thompson.
Bow Wow majorly shaded Wendy Williams this year.
Bow Wow and Williams had it out for each other in 2019 after the rapper shared a photo of Williams in a black bikini and captioned it “they say it’s a hot girl summer,” along with several emojis that indicated he was mocking the star.
Fans immediately jumped to Williams’ defense, criticizing the rapper for body shaming the talk show host. Bow Wow’s post about Williams has since been deleted.
Williams had previously criticized Bow Wow for making nasty comments about another star, pop singer Ciara.
Kaitlynn Carter, Miley Cyrus, Brody Jenner, and Liam Hemsworth found themselves caught up in relationship drama in 2019.
After Cyrus and Hemsworth called it quits after less than a year of marriage in August, the “Malibu” singer was spotted kissing Carter on a boat weeks later.
Carter’s ex-husband mocked the photos in a post of his own. “Watch out! Pics of Liam and I holding hands on the beach coming soon,” Jenner wrote in a post.
Cyrus then responded, saying, “@brodyjenner go take a nap in your truck and cool off #HotGirlSummer.”
Cyrus and Carter later broke up. The “Wrecking Ball” hitmaker went on to date Australian musician Cody Simpson.
Nicki Minaj and Cardi B continued their years-long feud in 2019.
All hell broke loose between Minaj and Cardi B at a New York Fashion Week party in September 2018 when they nearly got into a physical altercation, but this year didn’t see a truce between the two artists. In fact, Minaj only continued to slander her fellow rapper in August 2019.
“I still had to go through these things because of people like you who made a sport out of tearing down a young, black woman who’s done nothing but come in this game with an authentic come-up,” Minaj told Joe Budden on his podcast at the time, prompting fans to believe she was labeling Cardi as inauthentic.
Cardi then defended herself in a social media rant of her own.
