Athletes and other celebrities alike definitely have some of the most inflated egos on the planet. And unfortunately, when you combine a couple of large egos that don’t quite see eye to eye, altercations can happen. Here are some of the biggest athlete/celebrity altercations or feuds in recent memory.
1. Lil Wayne & Dez Bryant
In early 2012, a headline made its way around NFL circles that stated Dez Bryant had been involved in a fight outside of a Dallas nightclub. The story got even crazier as some reports stated that the altercation stemmed from some heat between Bryant and Lil Wayne and his entourage. Apparently Wayne and his crew put Bryant on blast in the club for some unpaid debt and the NFL star didn’t obviously take too kindly to that.
2. Fabolous & Sebastian Telfair
This one took place back around a decade ago, but it was big news at the time and it got pretty heated. In 2006, Telfair was robbed of more than $50,000 of jewellery outside of a New York restaurant owned by Diddy. Moments after it happened, Telfair was seen making a call and soon after the call, an unknown shooter came by and shot rapper Fabolous (an associate of Diddy’s). While there was no concrete connection between the two found, the suspicion remains and it seems very likely the two were related.
3. Rick Ross & Floyd Mayweather
It seems that Floyd Mayweather is always getting into altercations whether in the ring our outside of one. Rick Ross is one of his longest running beefs as the two have been bickering back and forth for years, dating back to 2007. But in 2010, it almost came to blows in 2010. The two exchanged heated words after meeting at a night club and the feud almost got physical, but was broken up before anything big could happen. Not going to lie though, that would be quite an interesting scrap to watch.
