Chris Brown, Rihanna, and Drake

7 Celebrity Wars Over Love

Celebrities are proving that status doesn't change you when it comes to disrespect. Sure, many will take the high road when shade is thrown their way because, well, it comes with being one of the hottest, most talked about figures. However, taking stabs at their leading lady or guy, all gloves come off.

Whether it have been in person, over social websites, or through music, celebrities don't hesitate to throw daggers at their famous foes whenever they get the chance. Take a look at some celebrities that have lost their cool in the name of love.

1. Chris Brown vs. Drake

Drake may be the rapper but Chris is definitely the fighter. Both rappers are linked to Rihanna and we can’t quite put our finger on it but the Unapolegetic singer definitely influences her lovers.  Her bad girl image must have mustered some thing inside of Drake because he took violence to another level.  In honor of Rihanna, the YMCMB rapper threw and hit Chris Brown with a bottle at WIP this past year.  However proving that he is more of a lover than a fighter, Drake vacated the area once he saw the damage he caused.

Another day, another brawl. There is still ongoing details to their second altercation, but somewhere through all the media write-ups, Rihanna's name surfaced. Reports of the Channel Orange singer referring to Chris Browns' ex-flame as a 'ho' seem to be what caused Chris Brown to have a falling out. The "Don't Judge Me" singer doesn’t play when it comes to his longtime love, this week Frankie failed to get the memo.

Two is a couple, three is a crowd. The ongoing battle between which lady will ultimately win Chris Brown’s heart for good has yet to be decided. Between Instagram and her Unapologetic album, Rihanna has been openly making it clear that she wants her top spot back, while Karrueche is more reserved than BadGalRiRi but not giving Chris up without a fight. Whether they are taking e-shots at one another or taking flicks of their "Chris" time, their love triangle is turning into a a real life "Love and R&B" episode.

Kevin, Carmelo, and LaLa

4. Kevin Garnett vs. Carmelo Anthony

Honey Nut Cheerios should pay Garnett as he has boosted the popular cereal with his recent on-the-court stunt. After insulting La La Anthony on the basketball court, the good, family guy image Carmelo has been upholding went out the window as soon he headed to KG's locker room. Anthony made it very clear with the Celtics player that one thing you don’t disrespect is the love of his life and mother to his son.

Soulja Boy did what any generation Y tough guy would do with the Internet at his disposal: He disrespected Diamond directly to Lil Scrappy through a tweet. The two exchanged a serious of claims from gay rumors to threats of a full brawl. Although this battle remained virtual, Diamond sure put a hex on both these Atlanta rappers.

Toya Wright only has one rule: Don't make claims about her man being abusive. This nasty battle between K. Michelle and Memphiz only got ugly when his wife proved she wasn’t sitting on the sidelines as the Love & Hip-Hop ATL star ran rampant with her claims. Toya took to defense mode which turned into a Twitter beef between her and and the Tennessee singer.

Matt barnes, Gloria, Avante7. Matt Barnes vs. The Game’s Crew

“She’s loving the crew” is what Game’s Black Wall Street crew member Avant Rose is hinting about Matt Barnes' wife, Gloria Govan. Taking to Twitter to stir up drama and humiliation towards Matt, Avant released a series of disrespectful tweets. Pro-ball player who? Matt Barnes stepped to him (via Twitter) to defend himself. This short beef was entertaining even if it didn’t last much longer than a series of disrespectful tweets.

CupcakKe Reveals Abusive Boyfriend Led Her To Contemplate Suicide

Months of abuse led to the suicidal tweet posted by Chicago native CupcakKe, earlier this month. In a lengthy message posted to her Twitter account over the weekend, the 21-year-old rapper admitted that she’s been battling depression, brought on by an abusive ex-boyfriend.

In the post titled “my disturbing read,” CupcakKe accuses a man named, Christopher Terrell, of stealing her credit cards and terrorizing her throughout their relationship.

“This is someone I’ve been dating for the past [five] months,” she wrote in the now deleted post. “Out of the kindness of my heart I gave this man over [$30,000] during this period [of] time because I understand how it feels to be without (especially after me being homeless). He also has threatened to shoot my mom in the face [and] has threatened me on multiple occasions [and] said he can do it because he will get away with it!!!! I have screenshots, recorded calls, bank statements and all types of proof.

“Me being stupid in love I have [taken] this man back multiple times but every time I take him back the abuse gets [worse],” she added.

Further in the post, CupcakKe explains that her depression from feeling trapped in the relationship resulted in her contemplating suicide. “He [has] snatched off my wig in public, broke phones [and] continues to traumatize me every step of the way! This is what [led] to my ‘I’m committing suicide’ tweet…I have called the cops multiple times and they have yet to do anything about it,” she wrote, adding that Terrell is threatening her with revenge porn. She also admitted to posting his number on social media, and the numbers of women that he “plotted” with  to steal her money.

“Yes I am wrong for that,” she said. “But by me sending this message out it is not for harm to be sent his way, it’s for the police to make things way more serious!!!! Also this message is for every young girl or anyone in general that is struggling with abuse right now. I get u (once you see the first sign) leave!!!”

Kelly Rowland Says Her Highly-Anticipated Project Is "Definitely Coming"

Six years ago, Kelly Rowland released her fourth studio album titled Talk a Good Game. The project boasted hit singles like "Kisses Down Low" and the transparent "Dirty Laundry." Now, the Houston native is preparing to release a project that'll surely satisfy fans' patient earbuds.

In an interview with Billboard, Rowland shared her hopes for putting out a new body of work and the pressure that she's encountered since she's been in the studio. "This is by far the longest, most pressure-filled process ever, only because I know what it's supposed to be and I have been so hard on myself. I know it," she said. "And it's the first time I've said it out loud. I've been extremely hard on myself. But it's definitely coming, and I'm more so excited about this project than anything else."

The news follows the recent release of Rowland's "Kelly" track, which was met with critical acclaim in November 2018. In addition to preparing the release of new music, the "Motivation" singer discussed fans' wish for a Destiny's Child reunion. The rumors have been fueled by social media photographs of Rowland with either Beyonce or Michelle or all three, especially during Beyonce's past Coachella performance. But Rowland assures readers that it's not what they think.

"It's so funny. I guess every time people see us together, they just see music but I see sisterhood, and that's what we are and that's what me, her, Michelle [Williams] and Solange and I are. People see us all together, they immediately think music. I'm like, no. Just family." As Rowland previously mentioned Solange, she hopes to one day work with her again.

"I'm a huge fan," she said. "I love her writing and how detailed and particular she is. I always wanted to figure out how the heck she has so many different layers of harmonies when she is constructing these vocals, and it's so complex but simple. It's genius. It's the genius in her genius mind that she has in there." One of the last times the pair collaborated was on Rowland's "Simply Deep" track off her debut solo album of the same name. Solange also penned a few songs off the same project. Fast forward to 2016, and Rowland's vocals were featured on Solange's iconic A Seat at the Table.

Teyana Taylor To Pay Homage To Ballroom Culture In "WTP" Video

Teyana Taylor aims to keep her hot streak of innovative videos coming thanks to this recent announcement. Taking to Instagram on Wednesday (Jan. 9), the "Gonna Love Me" singer will show adoration to ballroom culture in the visual for "WTP."

Directed by Gregory "Beef" Jones, The Aunties Inc., and Taylor herself, the Harlemite takes viewers on her journey to the expression-filled space where she hopes to rack up 10s across the board from a group of judges. The premise of the video also seems to follow a mockumentary format airing on a fictional network named FEMTV. Alongside Taylor, other men and women get ready to display their talents and confidence on the ballroom floor.

"WTP" is featured on the mother-of-one's sophomore album, K.T.S.E., which was released in June 2018. While the rollout's controversy didn't entirely muddle the excitement behind the project's debut, Taylor said she was sold on the idea that her album would be treated as the biggest out of G.O.O.D. Music's string of releases last year.

"I didn't know ahead of time that there wouldn't be any singles or visuals. But I knew that it was going to be the five-album thing," she said during a HOT 97 interview. "[Kanye] wanted [my album] to be last, he wanted mine to be the biggest. That's the way they sauced it up. I was sold."

The video will debut on Jan. 19. Check out the teaser below.
