Everyone loves a good old catfight. You’re lying if you say you don’t. Yes you are. Modern media relies on celebrities falling out, sometimes even whipping up a ‘dispute’ from thin air. But the most notorious spats are all real. And they’re ugly.

Read on to get the inside track on some of the best A list beefs of all time.

Madonna vs. Gwyneth Paltrow

Originally, these two formed one of the mightiest friendships in all celebville, but it wasn’t to last. And it’s all because of a personal trainer. Oh, the trials of the rich and famous. Madonna decided to give their mutual trainer Tracy Anderson the boot and all hell broke loose, leading to Madonna terminating their ‘friendship contract’ (seriously) and Gwyneth allegedly referring to her Madgesty as ‘insufferable. Which, to be fair, sounds plausible.

Hilary Duff vs. Lindsay Lohan

Yes, before Lindsay was swigging beers on yachts and before Hilary was getting settled into motherhood, these two princesses got into quite the tangle – over a boy. That’s right, the swishing blonde hair of Aaron Carter. One of Tinseltown’s youngest players managed to start dating LiLo when he was about a year and a half into his relationship with Hilary. Neither girl was particularly impressed by this, and the spat culminated in Lindsay using a Saturday Night Live monologue to throw some serious shade at Miss Duff.
