Rihanna Mocks Teyana Taylor’s Singing On Instagram, Catfight Ensues On Twitter
Teyana Taylor is beefing with Rihanna on Twitter and the claws are all the way out! Taylor didn’t take kindly to a video that RiRi posted to Instagram of her hairstylist Yusef mocking the G.O.O.D. Music rapper/singer and didn’t hesitate to fire back at Rihanna with a clear and direct warning: “Don’t play wit me.”
Two weeks ago, Taylor posted a video to Instagram singing Anita Baker’s classic ‘Caught In The Rapture.’
Early today, Rihanna posted a video of her hairstylist Yusef singing the exact same segment of the song while donning a long wing and a snapback hat – a look that has become signature for Teyana Taylor.
Naturally, Teyana immediately fired back (rightfully so) .. and held no punches!
Rihanna’s “Navy” immediately jumped in to attack Taylor, but were quickly dismissed.
At first, Rihanna let her Navy do the talking, and chose not to even acknowledge TT directly by name on her Twitter timeline.
But then, RiRi stooped to a whole new level of petty and made her background a photo that compared her net worth of $90 million to Taylor’s much smaller income of $500,000. (Ouch!)
Still, Taylor refused to fall back and actually fired right back at Rihanna using her $90 million income as a platform for her humorous punchline.
Then, Teyana took a page out of Rihanna’s book and decided to change her Twitter background to a photo that may have opened up a few old wounds (no pun intended).
While Rihanna’s Instagram video of her stylist singing the EXACT same segment of the EXACT same song that Taylor posted just weeks prior may have been a “coincidence,” I’m pretty convinced that the doctored image – using the infamous photo of Rihanna’s face after being beaten by Chris Brown in 2009 – was not.
We aren’t sure where things went sour (being that RiRi and TT were once friends) but Teyana’s friendship with Chris Brown probably has a little to do with it. But does it give Rihanna the right to be a bully?
UPDATE: Both Rihanna and Teyana Taylor have deleted tweets related to their Twitter-spat, but as you know, once things are posted on the internet, they are never really “deleted.”
Is Rihanna a bully, or is Teyana Taylor just being too sensitive?
