The Biggest Celeb Brawls That Shook The World: Including Justin Bieber and Drake
From Solange to Cardi B, there have been some crazy fights over the years...
It's not every day that you wake up to headlines of a celebrity getting into physical fights, never mind two of them fighting each other.
But when living in the unpredictable world of money, fame and lavish parties with free bars and enemies, so-called beef can actually begin cooking and suddenly there's security man-handling someone to escort them off of the premises.
That's what seems to have happened between Cardi B and Nicki Minaj just last night, when both attended a New York Fashion Week party hosted by Harper's BAZAAR, and it's gotten everybody talking.
We'll get into it in more detail below, where we're going to take a look back at the wildest celeb brawls and bust-ups that left the world gasping for air!
Cardi B vs. Nicki Minaj
It's September 2018. Two rap queens - who the media has pinned to be enemies since day one - attend Harper's BAZAAR's ICONS party during New York Fashion Week. One says something about the other's parenting skills, and said parent throws her designer high-heeled shoe at the other. Yes, that's what happened last night when Cardi B and Nicki Minaj got into a brawl during fashion's biggest week. Oop!
The fight was caught on video (hello, it's 2018), showing Cardi repeatedly lunging towards Nicki before launching her shoe at the rapper when she was hiding behind a wall of security. Members of Nicki's entourage were shouting at Cardi, calling her a "crazy b**ch", to which Cardi told them all to "never speak about my daughter" again. So what's the deal?
Well, Cardi logged on to Instagram this morning and said she has had enough of Nicki's behaviour. Accusing her of trying to block her from the music industry, threatening other rappers so they don't work with Cardi and allegedly speaking about her parenting skills to baby Kulture, Cardi seems to have no regrets about the incident as she was standing up for her and her child. Nicki has yet to say anything. Whew...
Drake vs. Chris Brown
In 2012, Drake became involved in a nightclub brawl with Chris Brown, supposedly over their mutual ex Rihanna. Drake was rumoured to be dating the pop superstar at the time and while she wasn't in attendance, something shady happened because Brown walked away with a gash on his face after allegedly being bottled by one of the 'God's Plan' rapper's entourage.
Drake has always denied being involved in the fighting, which took place in the VIP area of New York's W.I.P nightclub, although witnesses at the time claimed to have seen Drake flipping the middle finger to Brown. This no doubt stirred up Brown and caused him to start fighting but things definitely took a nasty turn when both artist's teams throwing glass bottles at one another. I mean, come on - is that really necessary?
Solange vs. Jay-Z
Fights aren't cute. They never have been, and never will be. However, in saying that, Solange hitting Jay-Z in an elevator at a 2014 Met Gala afterparty is quite frankly iconic.
In the midst of his infidelity, Beyoncé's younger sister unleashed her anger on her brother-in-law - as Bey herself watched on, doing nothing to even try to stop it - and the footage was quickly sold to a news outlet. Having the whole world know your personal business must have been devastating for the notoriously private Beyoncé, although we bet she was quite happy that Solange let her husband know he was in the wrong.
Isn't that what siblings are for?
Justin Bieber vs. Paparazzi
2013 wasn't the easiest time for Justin Bieber. The pop superstar was one of the most famous people in the world, still a teenager, freshly broken up with Selena Gomez, and understandably lashing out a bit.
However, he cemented his reputation as pop's new bad boy when he literally lashed out at a paparazzo in London. The infamous moment saw Bieber swiftly exit the SUV awaiting him after the guy shouted telling him to "F**k off back to America", launching himself out of the car to yell "the f**k you say?!" while trying to smack the camera out of his hand. We think all parents shuddered when they saw the video of it all, slowly starting to regret buying their kids' tickets to see him just months before.
But, hey, he's all good now! He's about to marry Hailey Baldwin!
