From Solange and Jay Z to James Packer and David Gyngell, it’s the five wildest celebrity bust-ups.
We see them in the media all the time and know their faces like they’re our friends. But it’s a surreal moment when you find them on the streets rolling around in a tumble of human limbs.
1. Solange v. Jay Z
Footage was released today of the family warfare that went down at the Met Gala behind the closed doors of an elevator. The quarrel, caught on tape by a security camera, begins with Jay Z, Beyonce Knowles and Solange Knowles standing in an elevator. Seemingly out of nowhere, Solange throws her whole body at Jay Z, violently attacking her brother-in-law until a member of their entourage separates them. (Jay doesn’t strike back.) While this is going on, an awkward Beyonce stands by and watches the carnage unfold. What sparked Solange’s outburst is unknown, but Jay Z refused to get into another small space with her — he was photographed walking away from the car Beyonce and Solange got into afterwards.
2. James Packer v. David Gyngell
This high profile squabble made headlines in the mainstream media with the CEO of Channel Nine, David Gyngell, and multi-millionaire James Packer clashing fists on the front lawn of Packer’s home. The daylight feud was said to have originated from tension regarding their friendship and Packer’s recent relationship with Miranda Kerr. The fight erupted as Gyngell drove to Packer’s home and got out of his car swinging. Photographed by onlookers, the two were pulled apart shortly after the initial blow.
3. Chris Brown v. Drake
Chris Brown and Drake’s posses got into a scrap in a New York City nightclub in 2012. Brown is said to have sent over a bottle of champagne to Drake’s table as a peace offering over past tension regarding singer Rhiannon. Drake allegedly sent the bottle back and confronted Brown with his entourage, sparking the nightclub brawl.
4. Will.I.Am v. Perez Hilton
The unlikely clash between Will.I.Am and Perez Hilton took place back in 2009 at a nightclub in Toronto. Hilton had trashed Will.I.Am’s group, the Black Eyed Peas, on his website before the two men coincidentally ran into each other at the club. A confrontation erupted between the two after Hilton reportedly yelled out “Will.I.Ams’ a f*****t.” Hilton claims that Will.I.Am allegedly punched him from behind, which, yeah, seems like something Will.I.Am would do.
5. Paris Hilton v. Shanna Moakler
It’s not just blokes that get into fist fights. Paris Hilton and Shanna Moakler’s ultimate cat fight comes in at number five. Paris says Moakler punched her in the jaw, while Moakler claims Paris’s boyfriend at the time pushed her down some stairs and poured a drink on her. The tension between the two came from Paris shacking up with Moakler’s estranged husband Travis Baker.
