The stars were ready to rumble this year! As 2016 comes to a close, Us Weekly Video is taking a look back at this year’s biggest celebrity feuds, from Kim Kardashian and Kanye West vs. Taylor Swift to Selena Gomez vs. Justin Bieber. Relive 2016’s most notorious fights in the video above!
Before Kardashian, 36, was robbed at gunpoint in Paris this past October, and husband West, 39, was hospitalized for extreme exhaustion in November, the power couple dealt with a different kind of drama: fighting with 27-year-old T. Swift.
As previously reported, the reality TV queen took to Snapchat in July to share video recordings of Swift speaking with Yeezy about his plans to give her a shout-out in “Famous” — in which he raps, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous.”
Though the “Shake It Off” singer told the hip-hop magnate in their phone call that she “really [appreciated]” his heads-up about using her name on the track, she shared her side of the story via Instagram shortly after their discussion made its way online.
“Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me ‘that bitch’ in his song?” Swift wrote. “It doesn’t exist because it never happened. You don’t get to control someone’s emotional response to being called ‘that bitch’ in front of the entire world.”
Swift’s BFF Gomez, 24, got into a squabble of her own with ex JB, 22, this summer. On August 14, Bieber threatened to make his Instagram page private if his fans didn’t stop bad-mouthing his then-girlfriend Sofia Richie.
“I’m gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate this is getting out of hand,” he wrote alongside a black-and-white photo of the pair. “If you guys are really fans you wouldn’t be so mean to people like that.”
The message prompted Gomez to clap back in a pointed comment: "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.”
A social media war ensued and the Biebs went on to accuse the “Kill Em With Kindness” songstress of using him “for attention.” Gomez responded by accusing the Canadian-born crooner of cheating on her multiple times.
