Rihanna – The “Only Girl In The World” singer Rihanna had a public tiff with R&B star Ciara that got worse before it got better.

Ciara was a guest on Joan River’s “Fashion Police” when a picture of Rihanna wearing a Christian Dior Couture piece to the Brit awards appeared on screen. Presumably Ciara was a guest to criticize the stars fashion choices, but Ciara took a different turn and commented on Rihanna’s attitude saying,

“I ran into (Rihanna) recently at a party. She wasn’t the nicest. “It’s crazy, because I’ve always loved and respected what she’s done in fashion. It wasn’t the most pleasant run-in.”

Joan responded calling Rihanna a “bitch”. Then the Twitter battle ensued:

1st up Rihanna: “My bad ci, did I 4get to tip u? #howrudeofme.”

Ciara: “Trust me Rhianna u dont want to see me on or off the stage.”

Rihanna: “U gangsta huh? Haaa,”

Rihanna: “Good luck with bookin that stage u speak of.”

Ciara: “pure comedy….”

At this point Ciara is taking a hard beating and Rihanna’s publicist reportedly forces/encourages her to apologize;

Rihanna: “Ciara baby, I love u girl! U hurt my feelings real bad on TV! I’m heartbroken! That’s y I retaliated this way! So sorry! #letsmakeup”

Ciara accepted Rihanna’s apology saying: “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.”

Did Ciara speak out of place on “Fashion Police”? Did Rihanna unnecessarily pull out the big guns? Share your thoughts…
