Rihanna and Ciara got into a Twitter beef on Friday (February 25) after Ciara made an appearance on E!’s ‘Fashion Police’ and shared her thoughts on her rival, suggesting that Rihanna “wasn’t the nicest” during their last encounter and it “wasn’t the most pleasant run-in”, prompting Joan Rivers to interject that Rihanna was “a bitch.” After hearing about it, Rihanna mocked Ciara for being less successful sales-wise and the two exhanged unpleasantries before Rihanna made a peace offering. Nicki Minaj even jumped in at one point, siding with Rihanna. The Tweets included:
Rihanna: My bad ci, did I 4get to tip u? #howrudeofme

Ciara: pure comedy…
Ciara: 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
