rihanna pic*Catfight!

Apparently Rihanna‘s wrath extends beyond Chris Breezy and the poor microphones her ear-splitting voice terrorizes during concerts.

In Touch, via “The Gossip Table,” reports that RiRi engaged in a screaming match with her childhood friend, Melissa Forde, (no, not the video vixen. Ol’ girl wishes she was that fine) because of some he-said-she-said drama.

Now, before you scratch your heads in confusion at how this could possibly be news, hear us out.

Anywho, the “Diamonds” singer and Forde met as girls and grew up in Barbados together.

“The screaming match started when Rihanna heard Mel was talking behind her back and being rude to her staff and security,” explains a childhood friend of the pair. The singer called out her longtime best friend on her diva-like behavior.

Melissa has just over 350,000 Instagram followers and around 70,000 Twitter followers and often gets the same perks as Rihanna herself (some of you might call this “coat-tail riding”).

Perhaps the fame has seeped through this girls weave and gone to her head. Or maybe she’s just green with envy. Their friend tells the mag, “There’s always been an underlying tension between Melissa and Rihanna.”

But the girls gave each other some time to cool off and the insider adds to In Touch, “Melissa’s back on the tour, at least for now!”
