After launching her River Island collection in London last night, Rihanna hung out with longtime friend and assistant Melissa Forde as well as another friend Leandra.
The girls enjoyed having a good laugh at a clip of RnB singer Ciara doing an a capella version of her latest single, Body Party, which she sung in a bathroom on a recent trip to Paris.
Melissa and Rihanna had previously ‘liked’ an Instagram picture of Ciara signing her name on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame in chalk. This furthered speculation that a previous public beef between Rihanna and Ciara was far from over, despite Ciara stating in a UK interview that she enjoys seeing Rihanna do her thing as an artist.
And yesterday, Melissa tweeted the picture of the three girls with a link to her Instagram account; and to make it obvious that they had been mocking the RnB singer, she had written ‘(bathroom acapella version) #London’ with a kiss emoji and a deuces emoji :
Once the tweet and link had spread rapidly, Ciara had become aware that she was being mocked by the three and even retweeted Melissa’s tweet as well as acknowledging that she was above their childishness:
For those who are unaware of how the beef originated, Ciara featured on Fashion Police and said she previously ran into Rihanna at an event and said Rihanna wasn’t very pleasant which then caused an epic online Twitter battle to commence between the two:
Do you think Rihanna’s friend had any right to restart the petty drama? Personally I think it was a little childish considering their online spat was over two years ago and it seems as if they’re constantly targeting Ciara.
Whatever the case is, the drama is definitely entertaining and I’m certainly not complaining!
