“It takes two to feud,” Oprah said in her recent sit down with rapper 50 Cent. Celebrities have been feuding as long as there has been the notion of celebrity or, you know, I am guessing that’s true. Sometimes the feuds have significant merit, sometimes they’re just straight up dumb. This week, we’re gonna check in on the hottest feud to hit Hollywood. Yep! Writer/Blogger/Hollywood Insider Nikki Finke and Writer Bret Easton Ellis.
Celebs in Feud: Nikki Finke and Bret Easton Ellis
Length of Feud: About two months, maybe longer.
Details of Feud: “Back in June, novelist and Fifty Shades of Grey superfan Bret Easton Ellis revealed (on Twitter) that he lives in the same LA apartment building as the very private Nikki Finke. (Gawker more or less confirmed this.) Ellis was back on Twitter this weekend detailing Finke’s reaction, which included threats against ICM, the talent agency that represents Ellis, and the author himself. ICM has since lawyered up in the matter, and their legal team is reportedly claiming that Finke ‘told top ICM employees she would reveal their home addresses and where their children go to school.’ She also allegedly told one ICM agent that she would post ‘damaging’ and potentially false information about the agency on Deadline. Penske Media Corp, which owns Deadline, issued a statement denying the claims. Meanwhile, Bret Easton Ellis is still tweeting against Finke, and will probably continue to.” (via)
Fun Feud Facts: Not sure if this is really fun, but my Google Image Search of ‘Nikki Finke Sexy’ is my most disappointing GIS of the day. Not really sure what I was expecting, to be honest.
Feud Settled: Maybe after the lawyers start talking, but I’m doubting it.
Other Feuds: Who isn’t in a feud with Nikki Finke?
Side Notes: HelloGiggles’ own Molly McAleer made one of my favorite Internet videos when she was at Defamer. This video should be celebrated.
