The lives of the rich and famous are almost always filled with drama, especially when it comes to relationships. Over the years we’ve seen relationships, especially friendships come and go. One day two celebs are best friends forever, and another day they’re sworn enemies. Whether it’s due to the media, getting work in the industry, or even a personal matter, celebrity friends have become enemies.
From celebrity best friends like Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian, Heather Locklear and Denise Richards, and even Jennifer Lopez and Eva Longoria, these celebrities were once the best of friends but are now enemies. It’s sad to see these friendships come to an end, but sometimes that’s what’s best for all parties involved.
10 Madonna & Gwyneth Paltrow
Back in the day, Madonna and Gwyneth were the best of friends, and Gwyneth even referred to Madonna as an older sister. These days, however, the two are far from friends as they are no longer on speaking terms. Fans started to pick up on the fact that something was wrong between the two of them when Gwyneth made some comments in an interview about a friend she had fallen out with.
Of course, people assumed her to be Madonna. Things started to go downhill for them when Madonna split from Guy Richie. Both Madonna and Gwyneth had a lot in common as they bother were married to British men and lived in the UK. Once Madonna and Guy called it quits and she moved back to America, this slowly went downhill for their friendship.
9 Kevin Smith & Ben Affleck
Ben Affleck and Kevin Smith used to be the best of friends, however, that friendship quickly ended and they’re now not even speaking. There were a lot of contributing factors that went into the downfall of their friendship. First of all, Kevin shared a story about Ben that got him into a bit of hot water, which angered Ben. Ben then went on to marry and eventually divorce Jennifer Garner which also contributed to their strained relationship. To top it all off, Kevin suffered a major heart attack and he shared that Ben never reached out to him to see if he was okay, angering Kevin even more.
8 Paris Hilton & Kim Kardashian
We all know that in the early 2000s Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian were the best of friends. Eventually, their friendship fizzled out as Kim gained fame. We’re not entirely sure what ended their friendship, however, it ended when Kim started to become more famous than Paris. It’s clear that it struck a chord with Paris, as she started to talk bad about Kim, insulting her appearance. It’s quite obvious that Paris got a bit jealous when Kim started gaining fame.
7 Heather Locklear & Denise Richards
Denise Richards and Heather Locklear were once the best of friends. Denise was married to Charlie Sheen and Heather was married to Richie Sambora. Both couples were friends and they even lived in the same neighborhood. However, they both wound up divorcing their husbands, things started to go south. Not long after their divorces, Denise started seeing Richie Sambora, and that sure complicated their friendship. Denise immediately started to backtrack and claimed that she was never that close with Heather in the first place.
6 The Rock & Tyrese Gibson
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson used to be really close with Tyrese Gibson until their friendship fell apart. The two were close while filming The Fast and the Furious movies, however, when The Rock’s character got a spinoff, things turned sour between the two as Tyrese didn’t think the spinoff should happen.
Once The Rock got his spinoff, Hobbs & Shaw, Tyrese was quick to post the poor opening weekend numbers in order to prove that he was right. He quickly deleted it, however, screenshots live forever. Tyrese said, “breaking up the family clearly doesn’t have the value that one would assume it does.” The Rock was quick to respond, though, saying, “The best way to shut the mouth of a clown is to flex with success and a smile.” Yikes!
5 Jay-Z & Kanye West
Kanye West and Jay-Z are two rappers who were once super close friends. Unfortunately, their friendship fell apart. It all started back during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards when Kanye upstaged Taylor Swift and Jay-Z’s wife, Beyoncé. When Kim Kardashian and Kanye were set to get married, Jay-Z and Beyoncé didn’t attend, making things worse. Kanye was also angered when Kim was robbed at gunpoint in Paris, Jay-Z never reached to them to make sure they were okay. To follow that up, Jay-Z released his album 4:44, which included a number of disses at Kanye, and Kanye pulled his music from Jay-Z’s streaming service, Tidal. Jay claimed that the back and forth was a form of brotherly love, but it sure doesn’t feel like it.
4 Kathy Griffin & Anderson Cooper
Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper used to be the best of friends, however, that changed after a bit of a scandal. We all remember when Kathy posted that infamous photo of her holding the severed head of a beheaded Donald Trump. Her career went up in flames as the photos angered many people, including her best friend, Anderson Cooper. Although Anderson has made it very clear that he is not a fan of former President Donald Trump, he thought that the photos were “disgusting and completely inappropriate.” After that, Anderson cut all ties with Kathy, along with the rest of Hollywood.
3 Jennifer Lopez & Eva Longoria
Jennifer Lopez and Eva Longoria used to be close friends before their friendship went up in smoke. Back when Jennifer was married to Marc Anthony, there were some questionable photos of Eva sitting on Marc’s lap, which got people talking. After Jennifer and Marc called it quits, Eva was quick to Marc’s side to be his person to lean on as he went through a divorce. Of course, Jennifer was angry, as Eva broke some serious girl code. Since then, the two haven’t been friends.
2 50 Cent & Floyd Mayweather
50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather were once very close friends, that eventually fizzled out all because of a business matter. Back in 2012 when Floyd was in jail, he asked 50 Cent to help take care of his businesses when he was locked up. Once he got out of prison, 50 Cent claimed that Floyd owed him money, as he invested a lot of his own while Floyd was in prison. That was what kicked everything off, as the two would go on to hurl insults at each other on social media from then on out, their beef never coming to an end.
1 Winona Ryder & Gwyneth Paltrow
Another set of close celebrity friends were Winona Ryder and Gwyneth Paltrow, and sadly their friendship ended too. Unfortunately for them, their friendship came to an end over a part in a movie. Winona was set to audition for Shakespeare in Love when Gwyneth found the script in Winona’s house. She read through it and fell in love, in which she pulled some strings to get an audition for the role of Viola. Of course, Gwyneth got the role and won Best Actress at the Academy Awards for it. This angered Winona, and she publically shared what Gwenyth did, and their friendship ultimately came to an end.
