From Jelena to Kourtney: The Biggest Celebrity Instagram Showdowns
Sometimes it goes down in the DM but other times we all get to see...
Yo Gotti once rapped that it goes down in the DMs but that's probably the most saucy stuff because pettiness is usually put on full display for all to see in the comments.
We've seen exes go at one another, stirring up old drama and airing their dirty laundry, or couples falling apart in front of our eyes because of jealousy. Then you have sworn enemies putting each other on blast directly with 9-part vlogs, and even siblings shutting off cheating in-laws. One thing is for sure: Instagram is never boring for long.
The gasps, the camp, the bitchiness, the audacity of it all is unbeatable. Let's revisit some of the most jaw-dropping!
Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima
This one was tough, wasn't it? After years of being in an unhealthy and tumultuous relationship with Scott Disick, Kourtney Kardashian finally seemed blissfully happy with Younes Bendjima. The pair were drop dead gorgeous together and the younger man seemed to bring the star back to life. However, it wasn't all as peachy as it seemed because Younes revealed to the world he had a bit of insecurity when it came to Kourtney showing off her body on social media.
In July, she posted a picture of her in a bikini, enjoying some shade under a tree from the summer sun, and he commented: "Thats what you need to show to get likes?" At the time, the couple were still an item so it was bizarrely public and cruel, as though to shame her, when she can do whatever she well pleases with her body. They have since split and Kourtney is still living her best life, so don't let anyone try to control your life, loves!
Nicki Minaj and Cardi B
Cardi B and Nicki Minaj's feud dates back to 2017, however it really came to a boiling point in the autumn of 2018.
In September, things got physical at the Harper's BAZAAR ICONS party when Cardi threw her shoe at Nicki for dissing her parenting. The incident lead Cardi to explicitly reveal backstage dramas and shady decisions from the past year, revealing that Nicki had tried to block her from doing collaborations and more, and then Nicki got on her chaotic Queen radio show (Apple Music if you're interested, it's wild) to call bullsh-t on these statements. What is the truth, girls?!
Anyway, that fight was only the beginning of it all because the next month Cardi would go on a full Instagram rant about Nicki. The epic 9-post saga posted in late October was truly something, as the 'I Like It' rapper tried to expose her supposed enemy by saying she was the first choice for designer campaigns and songs, even dragging Little Mix into it all by pulling up the 'Woman Like Me' instrumental that was sent to her.
They have since agreed - at least on social media - to keep each other's names out of their mouths to be positive. How long will that last, we wonder...
Kim Kardashian and Tristan Thompson
Kim Kardashian West has had her fair share of social media dramas since she first got involved. From exposing Taylor Swift by leaking audio from a phone call between her and Kanye West in that legendary Snapchat saga to claiming that Tyson Beckford is gay for some cheap tea, her success rates have certainly varied and her morals often questioned.
Although, Kim rarely gets it wrong when it comes to defending her family, so you know she wasn't shy when it came to Tristan Thompson.
Earlier this year Khloe's baby daddy was found out to be cheating on her literal days before she was due to give birth to their first child together, which isn't ever news you want to hear for your siblings. While protecting Khloe's privacy, Kim was vocal and unapologetic about her feelings towards Tristan and the whole situation, describing it as "so f--ked up" on The Ellen Show. He wasn't too happy about it and decided to block Kim on Instagram, which she told everyone about on her Instagram Stories. Duh.
A few months after the cheating scandal, Kim posted a video of her with the couple to her story, saying “Alright guys what do you think, it's Khloe's birthday. Do you think I should ask this guy to unblock me? For Khloe's birthday will you please unblock me?” The hilarious (yet very uncomfortable) moment lead to him unblocking her, only for Kim to reveal she never followed him in the first place as she asked fans “Now the question is, should I follow you?”
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez
One of the most explosive Insta fallouts happened between Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, breaking the hearts of every hopeful Jelena stan at that point in time. The Biebs was dating Sofia Richie at the time and, after fans constantly sent the innocent girl unwarranted abuse, he threatened to make his Instagram private unless his fans put a stop to it.
Out of nowhere, Selena got involved by commenting "If you can't handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol -it should be special between you two only. Don't be mad at your fans. They love you and supported you before any one ever did." Okrrrrrrrt. What next?
JB hit back by saying "It's funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love." To this, Selena basically thought 'LOL' and wasn't letting him paint her as an attention-seeking user (c'mon Justin, that was just dumb) so she hit back with the real tea and brought receipts with her.
OHHHH, did she really get him with the 'Sad. All love.'? Yes, she did. Selena may be sweet as hell but don't get it twisted, she will get you back if you try to f--k with her. Queen.
