Everybody knows that friendships don't always last: People change or simply drift apart! And in the worst case scenario, former pals have terrible arguments and vow to never speak to one another ever again. Naturally, in the entertainment industry, where back-stabbing and bitching is a ritual, it is unsurprising that beef is rife amongst A-listers.
The following 8 pairs of celebrities went through just this. They started out as best friends but now they refuse to be seen dead in a room with each other.
Take a look!
1. Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton
Once upon a time, Kim Kardashian was Paris Hilton's lowly side-kick, organizing the heiress's closet and social calendar. She wasn't even allowed to talk when she was talking!
Yet, as the reign of Paris was coming to an end, Kardashian was primed to usurp her throne. As she shot to fame, she received the brunt of the blonde heiress' wrath. At one point, Paris even said she would never want Kim's larger behind because it was "gross" and "reminds me of cottage cheese inside a big trash bag."
Well, considering Kimmy K now is the proud owner of the world's most famous derriere, I bet Paris wishes she could take those harsh words back.
2. Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez
The close friendship clearly went awry at one point, with Demi openly unfollowing her former BBF on Twitter. In response she said:
"I think it's just one of those things where people change and people grow apart."
Both refuse to talk about the real reasons behind the beef.
3. Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna
The former best buddies are no longer even speaking to each other. Everything turned sour back when Madge fell out with their mutual personal trainer. Following this, Gwyneth then asked readers of her website what to do when "you don't like a friend anymore" and the two frequently avoid each other like the plague at awards ceremonies.
4. Taylor Swift and Katy Perry
Apparently, Swift's 'Bad Blood' off her most current album may have been referring to a fellow pop-star. Speaking about the meaning behind the song, she spoke of Perry:
"For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, ‘Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?’”
Then, apparently the unbelievable happened:
“She did something so horrible. I was like, ‘Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies.”
Uh oh! Could it be that she started dating Taylor's ex, John Mayer? That's probably a part of it.
5. Blake Lively and Leighton Meester
Since Gossip Girl wrapped, it appears that Serena and Blair are no longer on speaking terms. Apparently, Leighton was pissed at Blake for not reaching out to congratulate her on her engagement to Adam Brody.
Take a look at their best bits on the show:
6. Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall
All of the Sex and the City ladies were very good friends at the start of the series. However, as time went on, the claws came out between SJP and Kim. In particular, they argued about Parker getting a bigger paycheck and there are frequent reports of major tension on the set of the SATC movies.
7. Katy Perry and Rihanna
Until 2012, it seemed that Katy and Rihanna were inseparable but it all collapsed when the 'California Girls' singer aggressively disapproved of RiRi's reconciliation with her abusive ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.
8. Elton John and George Michael
Elton and George were BBFs for decades and it was not until George's very public drug problem came into the open that the two became estranged back in 2004. What a shame! Just think of the musical explosion that could have been if they were still pals.
