In this week's edition of Friday Feuds the love triangle that resulted in a near-deadly cheating scandal refuses to rest, and two sparring Southerners let old receipts do the talking. Plus, Canada's crooning prince is still facing the music over a fight, Saint Pablo's wife stirs the Swift pot, and much more...

Kehlani vs. Basketball Fans

NBA Finals season seems to bring out the worst in fans. Unfortunately for much-maligned R&B singer Kehlani, she was caught in the cross fire yet again this week. Earlier in the year Kehlani was very publicly dating Cleveland Cavaliers star point guard Kyrie Iriving.

Despite what many assumed was an idyllic relationship, Kehlani ended up in bed with Canadian singer and songwriter PARTYNEXTDOOR, who took to Instagram to provide the masses with photo evidence...

The result was a sh*t storm of epic proportions that lead to Kehlani attempting suicide before taking a brief hiatus from social media. Now that she's back and Kyrie ended Game 5 of the finals with a 41-point performance, poor Kehlani's mentions were once again in shambles...

Kanye West vs. Taylor Swift

Despite their similarities, the bad blood between Kanye West and Taylor Swift just won't seem to dissipate. This week Mrs. Kardashian-West fanned the flames of acrimony when her cover interview with GQ Magazine hit stands. In it she claimed that Tay Tay was telling a big ol' fib about being unaware that she would be mentioned in West's song "Famous." Kardashian-West even went so far to claim that she has video evidence that implicates Swift...

She totally gave the okay. Rick Rubin was there. So many respected people in the music business heard that [conversation] and knew. I mean, he's called me a bitch in his songs. That's just, like, what they say. I never once think, [gasping] ‘What a derogatory word! How dare he?’ Not in a million years. I don't know why she just, you know, flipped all of a sudden … It was funny because [on the call with Kanye, Taylor] said, ‘When I get on the Grammy red carpet, all the media is going to think that I'm so against this, and I'll just laugh and say, ‘The joke's on you, guys. I was in on it the whole time.’ And I'm like, wait, but [in] your Grammy speech, you completely dissed my husband just to play the victim again.

Kim Kardashian West

Taylor Swift's camp has since responded in a statement that maintains the singer's ignorance of the song's content...

Taylor does not hold anything against Kim Kardashian as she recognizes the pressure Kim must be under and that she is only repeating what she has been told by Kanye West. However, that does not change the fact that much of what Kim is saying is incorrect. Kanye West and Taylor only spoke once on the phone while she was on vacation with her family in January of 2016 and they have never spoken since. Taylor has never denied that conversation took place. It was on that phone call that Kanye West also asked her to release the song on her Twitter account, which she declined to do. Kanye West never told Taylor he was going to use the term, “that b*tch” in referencing her. A song cannot be approved if it was never heard. Kanye West never played the song for Taylor Swift. Taylor heard it for the first time when everyone else did and was humiliated. Kim Kardashian’s claim that Taylor and her team were aware of being recorded is not true, and Taylor cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave her alone.

Can we get the receipts though, Kimmy?

Flying Lotus vs. Exploitative Rappers

Flying Lotus was pulling no punches on Twitter earlier this week. The hip-hop heavyweight took to social media to reflect on the role of producers in the industry. In a series of tweets he also made it clear that he had no time for exploitative rappers who didn't understand how symbiotic the relationship between musician and producer actually was...

FlyLo also went on to use Metro Boomin's contribution to Future's recent Purple Reign mixtape as an example...

When a few other publications caught wind of the tweets they questioned whether there was a potential beef brewing but FlyLo quickly shut down any rumors...

He then went on to compare his art to a sacred vagina...

The man, who later identified himself as Lamont Richmond of Cleveland Ohio, posted a lengthy Facebook diatribe describing what occurred from his point of view.

If Bieber declines Richmond says he will press charges.

David Banner vs. Bouncer

Rapper and activist David Banner's recent visit to Washington D.C. ended in an arrest for inciting a fight when the rapper allegedly got mouthy with a bouncer who denied his friend entrance into a club...

After reports of the incident surfaced Banner took to Twitter and Instagram to tell his side of the story and shame the media for what he felt was discriminatory reporting...

Rocko vs. Future (Part 2)

Last week we reported on Rocko's recent $10 million lawsuit against his former friend and collaborator Future whom he claims signed a six-album deal with his label, A1 Entertainment. Future later reneged on his promise and made a side deal with Epic Records that completely cut Rocko out. Shortly after the lawsuit was filed Future took to Twitter to throw some shade...

He apparently caught Rocko on the right day because the rapper reached deep into the files to pull out some receipts to remind Future what he'd done for him in the past...

Nicki Minaj vs. Perez Hilton

This week gossip blogger Perez Hilton took issue with Nicki Minaj whom he claimed hadn't released any statement or shown any support in light of the Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando.

Hilton kicked off a vitriolic round of social media antagonization by unearthing this tweet from Minaj...

Hilton then went on to call out Minaj for yet another tweet she favorited...

Minaj acknowledged that she'd clocked the shade but seemed determined to take the high road...

Undeterred Hilton then brought Minaj's bae, Meek Mill, and her brother into the melee. You'll remember that Nicki Minaj's older brother is currently faces charges for the alleged rape of a minor..
