15 Stars Who Were BFFs But Are Now Full-On Enemies
Showbiz friendships are pretty shallow, and often quite toxic. What happens when two chummy A-listers start hating each other? Some of them make music videos about the Bad Blood, like Taylor Swift or they vow never to work with them again, like Katy Perry. Over the years several celebrity friendships have turned sour. While some have made headlines, some stars have turned haters in secret. So who are the BFFs who turned haters?
1Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton
It just might be the most interesting reality TV rivalry. Kim used to be part of Paris’s squad and sometimes her assistant. She would often organise Paris’s closets and would accompany her to parties. Kim basically got the memo of fame as Paris Hilton’s BFF. A decade later Kim is the biggest reality start there is, while Paris has a non-existent career. No wonder things between the two are messy. In fact, Kim took the joke too far when she had Paris modelling for her husband Kanye West’s fashion line.
2Katy Perry and Taylor Swift
It all started when Katy Perry poached one of Taylor Swift’s backup dancers. Taylor who clearly doesn’t know how to let a grudge go, would bring up Katy in public interviews and talk show appearances. Katy too got sick and shaded Taylor in one of her songs and of course, several times on Twitter. Katy and Taylor used to be on good terms but Katy poked the dragon when she started dating Taylor Swift’s ex John Mayer and many people believe that Taylor actually hates Katy for dating her ex and not because of stealing her backup dancer.
3Gwyneth Paltrow and Winona Ryder
In the ’90s, Gwyneth and Winona were the most bankable showbiz BFFs, and were actually dating another couple of famous BFFs, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, respectively. It was rumoured that Gwyneth stumbled upon her Oscar-winning role at Ryder’s home. Gwyneth reportedly found the script for the film, Shakespeare in Love and eventually decided to audition for it, and of course got the part. The role and the film acquired incredible reviews and fetched Gwyneth her only Oscar. It’s no wonder the two can’t see eye to eye. To add to that Winona is pretty washed up by now, but Gwyneth still finds a way to be in the news owing to her MCU stint and her lifestyle brand Goop.
4Jennifer Lopez and Eva Longoria
The Latina beauties were once the best of friends. Then came 2008. That was when pictures emerged of Longoria sitting on the Lopez’s pop star ex, Marc Anthony’s lap. Longoria was also a married woman back then. A couple of years later Jennifer and Marc broke up and Marc reportedly sought comfort with Eva. Jennifer was reportedly inconsolable and though she never talks about Longoria, the news was widely circulated in the industry.
5Blake Lively and Leighton Meester
Blake and Leighton played stylish, upper East Side besties on Gossip Girl. While they were both newbies and in good terms when the show began, it became clear that the audience favours Blake a lot more than Leighton. Over the years their relationship soured. Although they played best friends on screen it was reported that they couldn’t stand each other in real life and won’t even talk between scenes.
6Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow
Madonna and Gwyneth were perhaps the unlikeliest BFFs in showbiz history and yet, from paparazzi misadventures to British husbands, they had quite a few things in common. They both had the same trainer named Tracy Anderson who had extensively worked and travelled with Madonna and was also close to Gwyneth. It was believed Gwyneth got angry when Madonna changed her fitness instructor as Tracy must have felt betrayed. Gwyneth even took a dig at Madonna in her lifestyle website Goop asking her followers what to do when you don’t like a friend anymore.
7Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie
Paris and Nicole ruled the early 2000s reality TV and were famous socialite besties. But in a surprise interview in 2005, Paris revealed that Nicole and she aren’t friends anymore. Though nobody knew what exactly happened between the two heiresses, sources claim that Nicole detached herself from Paris as the latter was getting an unstable reputation.
8George Michael and Elton John
George and Elton were iconic friends and share many similar experiences and yet had a curious fallout. It was reported that Elton was not okay with George’s reclusive lifestyle. After 2000 George shied away from the media glare and became very selective about work. Elton did not just criticise it but called it a waste of talent. George Michael took serious offence to that and shunned Elton out of his life.
9Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera
Christina and Britney had both grown up in the limelight and ended up as fast friends, but it was revealed that as Britney’s popularity grew, Christina was somewhat insecure. Not only did she refer to Britney as ‘trailer trash’ But also said that Britney was really lost and needed direction. Likewise, Britney also slammed Christina in another article and the two have been enemies since then.
10Jennifer Aniston and Chelsea Handler
After her divorce with Brad Pitt Jennifer sought Chelsea’s support and Chelsea took the whole issue public. She revealed Jennifer’s heartbreak to the media and this was of course utterly humiliating for Jennifer. Sources claim that Jennifer saw this as a betrayal and grew apart from Chelsea.
11Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall
Earlier this year Sarah and Kim’s feud took over the spotlight. Kim raged at Sarah for trying to use the victim card and claimed her good girl act was all a sham. Sarah did her best to contain the situation. She mourned the death of Kim’s brother on Instagram and even sought some sort of peace with her. But Kim was a woman with a mission when it came to blasting her Sex and the City co-star.
12Lea Michele and Naya Rivera
Lea and Naya were part of one of the biggest teen dramas, Glee. The two became pals but pretty soon grew apart. It was revealed that Naya is not happy that Lea’s character is getting more screen time then her. It’s important to note that Naya’s character was a lot more exciting than Lea’s. The both couldn’t see eye to eye and eventually turned full on enemies.
13Ben Affleck and Kevin Smith
One of the most bankable friendships in Hollywood ended quite absurdly. Ben Affleck and Kevin Smith made a number of successful indie flicks together including Mallrats and were inseparable. But after Ben married Jennifer Garner, their friendship fell apart. Kevin got candid in an interview and revealed that Jennifer does not like him and so Ben doesn’t care about him any more.
14Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato
Selena and Demi were the closes teen friends and spent most of their adolescence under the limelight. And like all showbiz friendships, their relationship ended too. Both Selena and Demi unfollowed each other on Instagram over respective jealousies. But considering they are both trying to be better people now and are making amends, maybe they’ll reunite soon.
15Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas
Miley and Nick’s friendship was a friendship made in Disney heaven. The child stars were tight until Nick started dating Selena. Soon after they embarked on a relationship, a video emerged of Miley making fun of Selena And Demi. This offended Nick who publicly proclaimed his support for Demi and Selena and ended things with Miley.
