Drama! Rihanna & Naomi Campbell Beefing?

Published: Wednesday 8th Mar 2017 by Sam

For all of Naomi Campbell‘s illustrious success, the supermodel has had no issues saluting newer names on the block.

Such camaraderie has been showcased in her love for Rihanna.

Beyond introducing Rih’s MTV Icon segment at the VMA’s last year, the British stunner even starred in a campaign for the Bajan’s Fenty x Puma fashion line.

But it appears there’s been a rupture in the friendship.

See what we mean below…

During a visit to Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live to promote new show ‘Star,’ Campbell was confronted with a question by an eagle-eyed fan.

Said fan noted that the ladies had recently unfollowed each other on all social media.

When asked for her response, Naomi said there was no issue…only to suggestively remind that she’s now an “actress.” Ouch.

Roll the tape!

Ms. Campbell threw a forest of shade, which ultimately leaves us wondering: what went wrong?!

    You late on this Tee. The shade was thick I wonder what happened if anything

  2. Fatusankoh March 8, 2017

    I don’t care for them both

    • Ughhhh March 8, 2017

      But yet you’re hear. Interesting…

      • Ughhhh March 8, 2017

    Im confused…you guys refer to EVERYTHING as shade! She barely said anything and the most of what she said was positive. Clearly something is off but I need a definition for shade!

    • FAF March 8, 2017

      Well what Ciara said wasn’t shade either and riri was panini pressed so let’s see her do a twitter tirade over this

      • Navi March 8, 2017

        Rihanna is 29 years old, she doesn’t have time for Twitter beef and clapbacks anymore. She has business to tend to… stay pressed.

      • blue March 8, 2017

        yes i guess saying someone wasnt the nicest on national tv equates to someone calling you a strong black woman

    • Jasmine March 8, 2017

      You should think of shade like sarcasm or throwing out a compliment while insulting someone at the same time. Shade is not an outright read (making an outright comment against someone). For example, if Naomi said she had no beef with Rihanna without saying “I am an actress now” then it would not be shade. Naomi is implying that her comment about not having beef is the exact opposite.

    I love BOTH of these ladies; they are/were true friendship goals. However, they are both some hot headed island girls with some slick ass mouths and a penchant for violence. Now that they are both beginning to act, I wonder if they’re is some beef over acting roles especially since there are very few roles for black women. Sidenote, Naomi fix that tacky ass lacefront, I can see the glue seeping out.

    • blue March 8, 2017

      acting roles? naomi looks good but she and a 29yr old arent competing for the same roles.
      also you just heard her say no they arent beefing.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy March 8, 2017

        Bihhhh she just said “I’m an actress.” Furthermore, Naomi has SEVERAL incidents of violence. Also, she beefed with the only other black supermodel of her day…Now, I love Naomi but a spade is a spade

    • Jasmine March 8, 2017

      Naomi is not an “island girl” and all women from the islands do not have “slick ass mouths and a penchant for violence.” Naomi is from the UK, regardless of her heritage.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy March 8, 2017

        Naomi is Jamaican NOT no anglo saxon Brit. She is undoubtedly an insland girl who has a HISTORY of violence. I love Naomi as she is beyond talented and gorgeous, but let’s not pretend that she’s a saint. Doing so is like believing Kim K doesn’t have a mean ass head game with a side of syphilis

    • Jasmine March 8, 2017

      @iSpeakTruthNoFallacy why is it important to you that she be considered an “island girl”? She is a grown woman by all means. I am a woman of Carribbean descent but I have never lived in the islands. Thus, I am an African American of Carribbean descent and not an “island girl” because I did not grow up there nor was I blessed enough to experience the culture there growing up. Naomi is a woman of Carribbean descent that is from the US so she is a Black British woman. The term “island girl” refers to a young girl that is from the islands, not a woman if carribbean descent. You would never hear African-Americans refer to black women as “African girls”.

  5. blue March 8, 2017

    she actually said that no they weren’t feuding then went and complimented rihanna, where exactly is the shade?

    • FAF March 8, 2017

      SHE said everything is fine

      Then said “I’m an actress now”

      Meaning that it’s not fine

      Did y’all watch the clip?

      • blue March 8, 2017

        she said everything was fine, then repeated it again in a different tone, then made the im an actress comment, which could either be her showing off her acting talents or her simply saying that unlike before when she use to beef with other models she was now an actor had doesnt do such things. then preceded to call rihanna strong black woman

  6. Suicide Blonde March 8, 2017

    Wow she’s gorgeous, there’s definitely something in the air, that “I’m an actress now” was a hint.

  7. Mark111 /.\ March 8, 2017

    These acts can’t handle the fact that they’re getting old and there’s a new wave of girls taking their spot. I don’t even see these two in the same fields, one is an artist and a new actress/fashion designer while the other is just a model and have a few roles on a tv show. Naomi is nothing but that, a cat walker and is bitter when other BLACK women steps in that world and passes her by and move on to other lanes, hint Tyra.

    • blue March 8, 2017

      i guess thats why she and rihanna were soo close…she hated rihanna stealing her spot soo much she even signed on to endorse her fashion line…

      • Mark111 /.\ March 8, 2017

        She needed a job, that is her job, right? Model people’s clothing lines? I think I stated that, matter of fact, I’m sure of it.

      • FAF March 8, 2017

        Some Argue hats all Rihanna is as well, a model with a few guest spots in a studio and on tv

      • Mark111 /.\ March 8, 2017

        Tell that to her 214M records sold, 7 platinum albums (and 1 gold) #14 #1s, 30 top tens and countless top 40s. Last I checked, models don’t sell records…

      • blue March 8, 2017

        @mark you mean naomi campell the women who can walk into any fashion house and demand they start paying her, was soo desperate for a job she went and help promote the career of a girl she is threatened by?

        @FAF 1st: for a model who guest spots in a studio, she sure has dominated the music industry, 2nd best selling female artist of all time
        highest selling female of color of all time
        most certified artist of all time
        digital artist, most streamed female and most pirated artist…
        2nd: find better shade cause if she aint singer and is dominating that much what does that say about the people who call singers?

      • Navi March 8, 2017

        You stan Ciara. Case closed.

    • Suicide Blonde March 8, 2017

      I think you’re speaking as a fan, Naomi is probably the most iconic female model in fashion history, will always be an essential figure in the fashion industry, not matter how many Gisele Bündchens are out there, no other female model has had an impact in the modeling world as her, no black, no white, no Asian, NO OTHER, Tyra? 😂 she was never on her level. Rihanna is one of the biggest pop stars of this generation, but she’s not the most iconic nor the most revered. Naomi is the Madonna of the modeling world, while Rihanna is often described as the BLACK Madonna, Naomi is the Madonna of the modeling world, not the black, or the British, I repeat, the Madonna of the modeling world. (Naomi just a model, nothing but that) 🙄 You Rihanna fans get too cocky sometimes.

      • blue March 8, 2017

        i get what you are trying to say, and i agree with it, but people dont refer to rihanna as the black madonna unless they are referring to the statement that she made years ago. rihanna doesnt have to be the most iconic anything she simply is iconic. so is naomi. also while naomi campell is the madonna of her trade, rihanna today is a bigger deal than both madonna and naomi, not that either naomi or madonna need rihanna just that today she is on top.

      • Mark111 /.\ March 8, 2017

        First, no one calls Rihanna “the Black Madonna”, you took a quote from Rihanna when she was a teen and ran with it. Second, last I checked, models get a gig from whom? the fashion designer, her job is to be a walking clothes hanger, let’s not make it more than what it is. Third, Rihanna then or now need this old @ss bitter hag to walk for her line, why? Because RIHANNA is the brand and has her own audience. Last, Tyra used modeling as a stepping ston and created an empire. She doesn’t have to be a bitter insecure, childless mid age b**** because her money now makes money. Naomi has a history of being kind and then trying to destroy you. At the end, these old hags (Madoanna, MF, Naomi and others)never learned that you have to evolve and move up or on with your career, they’re AGING, and that’s not being mean, it’s a fact of life. You can’t be #1, aimed at the youth forever. While others fall or move on, they sit and become b1tches and bitter.

    • Tokyo Vanity fan (formerly new) March 9, 2017

      Wow, what an idiot

  8. Sahsa_T March 8, 2017

    That was NOT shade. Her comment on “acting” didn’t seem related to Rihanna at all. It seemed more like an inside joke. And her last comments should have made this a non-topic

  9. JuicyBuity March 8, 2017

    To the eagle-eyed fan who spotted that Naomi Campbell now has 4923 instead of 4924 followers, and that missing person happens to be Rihanna… get a life y’all. Who the hell has that kind of time to comb through other people’s social media accounts like that???

  10. Datredd23 March 8, 2017

    Naomi networth < Rihanna Networth

    End of it

    • Rihboy March 8, 2017

      Because she’s and antique! And Rih still paid ! Naomi be in Rihanna’s face! And mind you in her gear as well( refer to last puma gently drop she endorsed. Furthermore I think she still mad about the time Rihanna paid her dust at her bday celebration.

      • Rihboy March 8, 2017


  11. Rihboy March 8, 2017

    I mean she faintly threw shade. And honestly doesn’t want it with Rih. I’m glad she kept it classy. So glad Rih doesn’t do these stupid ass interviews except for Ellen. And Ellen knows not to go there.

    • Shaunie O’Nostrils March 9, 2017

      B**** you must be crazy, talbout “don’t wan’t it with rih”. Wtf is that alien headed b**** going to do. Naomi is the one who actually has a temper and is notorious for it. Rih needs to run as far away as she can!

  12. Tori March 8, 2017
