While the brothas have since patched up their relationship, things were super iffy there during the summer. The drama started when Josh didn’t invite Drake to his wedding. Drake took his hurt feelings to Twitter in a series of now-deleted tweets. Suddenly, Drake & Josh fans were torn, with many verbally attacking Josh online.

Thankfully, Drake and Josh literally hugged it out at the VMAs. And in case you still don’t believe their reconciliation was genuine, they filmed more hilarious antics for Josh’s vlog. (Sorry, Megan, your plan didn’t work!)

Problematic Jake kicked Alissa out of the Team 10 house back in February, thus killing all Jalissa fans’ dreams. Jake accused Alissa of cheating on him, to which she claimed Jalissa wasn’t ever real, since Jake hooked up with tons of girls right in front of her.

In retaliation, Jake and Team 10 released a diss track called “It’s Everyday Bro.” While the song wasn’t strictly about Alissa, Jake did throw in some digs at his ex. Alissa got her revenge by creating her own diss track about Jake called “Its EveryNight Sis.” Despite the song title’s grammatical error (just sayin’) the tune found its way onto Billboard‘s Hot 100.

Later, Alissa revealed all of Jake’s insane rules for people living in the Team 10 house and how he put her through hell while she was under that roof.

4. Caitlyn Jenner vs. The Kardashians

As fans of Keeping Up with the Kardashians already know, Caitlyn and her family do not get along. After Caitlyn’s autobiography, The Secrets of My Life, was published, and claimed the Kardashians’ father knew O.J. Simpson was guilty, Kim Kardashian West called her a liar.

Caitlyn revealed to a crowd of students during a Cambridge Union event that the Kardashians aren’t speaking to her, and vice versa. She also explained how her book is the main cause of their separation.

5. Bella Thorne vs. Blackbear

Bella’s ex-friend/make out partner wasn’t excited for her relationship with YouTuber Tana Mongeau. Though Blackbear and Bella never ~officially dated~, meaning they never broke up, Blackbear let his jealousy get the best of him.

In a now-deleted tweet, he posted a pic of a news article covering Bella and Tana’s relationship, and showing his followers that he marked it “irrelevant.”

Bella was definitely not here for his BS, calling him out on Twitter: “You didn’t seem upset when we talked 30 min ago about having a threesome lol.”

6. Justin Bieber vs. Marilyn Manson

In 2016, the Biebs reprinted a Marilyn Manson shirt and sold it as part of his Purpose tour merch. The problem? The repurposed shirt included the phrase “Bigger Than Satan … Bieber,” and according to Marilyn, Bieber never got his permission to use his shirt.

Marilyn said in a 2017 interview with Consequence of Sound, “He was [already] wearing the shirt that had his name on my shirt, and he said to me, ‘I made you relevant again.’ Bad mistake to say to me.”

The rocker also called Justin “a real piece of sh*t” for the arrogant nature of the “I made you relevant again” statement.

But in a shocking turn of events, the beef was squashed after the duo texted each other about the whole thing. Marilyn even told Justin, “Let’s turn it upside-down and f**k the press and do something together.” So, are we getting a collab in the near future, or what?

7. Keke Palmer vs. Trey Songz

Keke accused Trey of using a cameo of her in his “Pick Up the Phone” music video. In a now-deleted Instagram, Keke wrote, “This is preposterous. How am I in this video Trey” adding, “After you found me in a closet HIDING because I was so afraid of anymore conflict. Literally my last option was to hide because you all would not listen when I said I did not want to be in the video the FIRST time.”

She claimed Trey used sexual intimidation on her to get her in that video. Trey subtweeted Keke with two tweets: “Babygirl buggin. Point blank period. Got my number, coulda called, saw the cameras and the lights, heard action” and “I don’t do this twitter s***, girl you know me and got my number fuck outta here.”

He also took to Instagram to express his ~feelings~: “So sorry for those that believe everything without knowing anything. However, I cannot devote my life to responding to, or clearing up every side of every story you hear about me, when would I actually live? I know my character, I know my truth, I know my heart. God does too. Words to anyone who’s being tested right now…I feel you, it’ll pass, I’ve been in a million storms…they all pass. Don’t let the noisy thoughts of others drown your inner voice, or inner peace for that matter.”

Keke began pursing legal action shortly after.

8. James Charles vs. three of the kids from It

This bizarre feud involved a Stephen King movie, an epic makeup tutorial, and wack apologies.

The whole thing started when James tweeted (and later deleted) that the new It movie was “awful,” and quickly felt the backlash from fans. He later made a video apologizing for publicly sharing his rude comment, but not apologizing for having an opinion. Then, James revealed he was doing a Pennywise the Dancing Clown makeup tutorial.

Here’s where some of the It kids come in.

Finn Wolfhard (Richie) called out James for tweeting while watching It — which, IMO, is a fair point. When James’s makeup tutorial was announced, Wyatt Oleff (Stanley) subtweeted so hard: “when you decide to exploit a movie that you hate for money & attention cause why not.”

But when Wyatt tried to claim his tweet was just “a joke,” James let ‘er rip. In two separate tweets, James wrote, “It’s not funny though? I’ve already said a million times you guys killed it in the movie & have apologized, you knew this ‘joke’ was going to result in me getting dragged left and right once again. I have a ton of respect for all of you guys but this is uncalled for.”

Wyatt then called off the It stans and all’s well that ends well, right? Nope. When James told Wyatt, “We’re all sisters down here,” Nicholas Hamilton (Henry) decided he needed to chime into an already-squashed beef. “Mmm but stop tho,” he tweeted. K.

9. Camila Cabello vs. Fifth Harmony

It’s no secret there’s been beef between Camila Cabello and her ex-girl group members in Fifth Harmony after she quit the group in late 2016. The squad continued with four members and released their self-titled album in August.

During the VMAs, Fifth Harmony shaded their former member and lit the internet aflame. Their performance featured five people, until one of them literally jumped backward and left the stage.

Camila took the high road in her interview with Radio Disney: “Fifth Harmony represented this confidence and girl power. I wouldn’t be the person or that artist that I feel like I’ve discovered, so I’m super thankful for that experience.” Despite this, something tells us this feud isn’t over yet.

10. Taylor Swift vs. Katy Perry

This broken record only continues to get more tiresome and more annoying. Taylor and Katy’s feud has been going on for about 12,895 years, and this year was no different.

One of the major highlights was when Katy dropped the song, and later the music video, for “Swish Swish.” The vid was filled with several references to Tay, because of course it would be. Plus, who could forget when she said during the VMAs, “Should I wear a choker and some ripped jeans? Maybe some Yeezys?” which many fans believe shaded Taylor with the whole Tay/Kimye fiasco.

That whole drama kind of made Katy’s apology to Taylor back in June for everything seem moot, huh? “I forgive her and I’m sorry for anything I ever did, and I hope the same from her.” Sure, Jan.

11. Jake Paul vs. FaZe Banks

Jake accused FaZe of assaulting Jake’s assistant, Meg Zelly, at a club, as well as making out with another girl who wasn’t girlfriend Alissa Violet. (Yes, it IS interesting these allegations arose after Alissa and Jake separated and Alissa started dating FaZe.) FaZe said he had no idea what Jake was talking about, and Jake lost 60,000 followers because of his allegations.

FaZe interviewed former Team 10 member Max Beaumont — who quit Team 10 because he didn’t like what Jake was doing — and was able to “prove” his innocence based on Max’s testimony of what really went down that night at the club.

Later, FaZe announced he was suing Jake and Team 10 for defamation.

12. Alissa Violet vs. Tessa Brooks

YouTube besties cut ties when Alissa savagely photoshopped Tessa out of a pic on Twitter, captioning it, “I am the facetune queen.” She later followed up with, “No hate, the pic is just better with me:),” but the message was pretty loud and clear.

Fans speculated the split had to do with Tessa still being super close with Jake Paul after he kicked Alissa out of the Team 10 house. Tessa supposedly subtweeted about Alissa, saying, “Forgiveness is essential for healing. Forgive yourself. Forgive others. Just let it go and move forward into your peace.”

Later, Tessa and Jake dragged Alissa in the Team 10 music video, “It’s Everyday Bro.” The lyrics “And you know I kick them out, if they ain’t with the crew / Yeah, I’m talking about you, you beggin’ for attention talking s*** on Twitter, too,” totally implied the drama between the trio over the year. (But, remember, Alissa’s diss track “Its EveryNight Sis” out-performed Jake and Tessa’s, at least according to Billboard‘s Hot 100.)

13. Justin Bieber vs. The Weeknd

While neither musician has publicly bashed the other like several feuds on this list, the duo are clearly at odds, with Selena Gomez caught in the middle. The Weeknd broke up with Selena and revealed he wasn’t thrilled with Sel hanging out with her ex-boyfriend again — even though he originally claimed he “didn’t care” when Jelena reconnected during Selena’s kidney transplant.

A source told Us Weekly that The Weeknd “trusted Selena, but he really didn’t trust Justin.” Considering all the paparazzi pics of Jelena recently, that seems like a fair assessment.

14. Taylor Swift vs. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West

Oh, jeez. Just take a look at Taylor’s music video for “Look What You Made Me Do,” and that’s all the answer you need. Or, just listen to the entire album of Reputation.
