Ciara and Rihanna beef explained

Ciara and Rihanna beef explained

THINGS between Rihanna and Ciara appeared to be cordial.

On the contrary, the two GRAMMY Award winners traded jabs at each other via Twitter.

Why did Ciara and Rihanna fall out?

In the wake of Ciara’s guest appearance on E!’s Fashion Police, she and Rihanna fell out with one another after the Level Up singer recalled an icy encounter she had with the latter at an industry event.

On February 25, 2011, Ciara told the show’s panel: “I ran into her recently at a party and she wasn’t the nicest.

“It’s crazy because I’ve always loved and respected what she’s done with fashion.

“I’ve run into her before but this time it wasn’t the most pleasant run-in.”

Right after the episode was broadcasted, Rihanna took to Twitter and responded to Ciara: “My bad ci, did I 4get to tip u? #howrudeofme.”

The Texas-born performer replied: “Trust me Rhianna u dont want to see me on or off the stage.”

The S&M singer said: “U gangsta huh? Haaa…Good luck with bookin that stage u speak of.”

However, it looked like the two hitmakers had a change of heart.

Later that same night, Rihanna offered an apology to Ciara and tweeted: “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.”

The superstars agreed to make amends as 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.”

What happened when Ciara released Body Party?

Two years after Ciara and Rihanna resolved their social media spat, their feud was reignited when the former assumed the latter was poking fun at her then-newly released single Body Party.

After The Color Purple actress released the music video for her song Body Party, Rihanna and her friend Melissa posted a clip of themselves watching the clip and laughing.

Regarding the controversy, Ciara told WGCI: “I thought everything was cool because I actually saw Rihanna two years ago at the MET Gala after we had the little small back and forth.

“From what I recall, everything was cool. So in my mind, I operate from a place of love and pure support.

“If you would have asked me about her up until this point I would have nothing but good things to say because I’m really happy for her.

“But I didn’t receive what they did from a positive place.”

The singer doubled down on her remarks and commented to WiLD 949: “I don’t know what her problem is, I think she’s nuts right now.

“Whatever’s going on, it doesn’t make any sense. She has a lot of good things going on with herself.

“A lot of good things I’ve always said I’ve been happy for her.

“I don’t get it, I really don’t but I wish her well. I wish her positivity.”

When did they end their feud?

On February 20, 2018, Ciara wished Rihanna a happy birthday on Twitter.

She tweeted: “Happy Birthday @Rihanna! Remembering the 1st time we met. It’s been cool to see you kill it! Keep on soaring ma!”

Months later, Rihanna posted a clip of herself to Instagram partaking in karaoke and singing along to Ciara’s 2004 breakout hit Goodies.

Many fans took this as a sign that the two have patched things up.
