This all started when the talk-show hosts got on the topic of "staying out of other people's relationships." Bailon called out Brown and his on-again off-again girlfriend Karrueche Tran, claiming the 25-year-old R&B star's has been unfaithful to the model/stylist but her friends won't say anything because they were benefiting from the relationship.
"Don't you think some of your friends reap some of the benefits of her dating Chris Brown?" Bailon, 31, asked. "Really are your friends going to tell you to leave that?"
Co-host Tamar Braxton suggested her female co-hosts "pull an inter-friend-tion" with Tran, 26, though are they actually friends with her?
Brown caught wind of the comments and launched into a profanity-laden Instagram rant
(which he later deleted) that included calling Bailon an "ole trout mouth a** b**ch" and Braxton a "muppet face a**."
"U take the role of the ugly sister," Brown slammed Tony Braxton's younger sister, insisting that plastic surgery "f**ked yo face up." Prior to deleting the post, Bailon's ex Rob Kardashian
reportedly "liked" the photo.
On Monday night, Braxton reacted to Brown's insults via Instagram. "You are only a few years older than my son and I will not tolerate your disrespect when no one was coming for you!!!" she wrote. "So this RICH/BLESSED Muppet who WAS always VERY nice to you and your girl will continue to work my a** off and make amazing records and positive television while YOU ...In this very queenish mood you are experiencing …should have and could have picked up the phone!! ...or watched the show for yourself!!! At least that's what REAL men do."
But Braxton, 37, wasn't done with Brown just yet. "No one came at either of you but was simply using your relationship as an example of things us ladies go through in a relationship!!" she added. "I do not know nor do I give a hot damn about your relationship personally. ...honestly and respectfully I'm VERY sorry if you BOTH were offended about our girl chat.... however you WILL NOT think it's ok to come at GROWN women and talk to either myself or @adrienne_bailon as if u have EVER has us each in your bed at ANY point in our lives! (Maybe your mind is clouded)."
Bailon addressed the incident by responding to a Twitter follower
. "Who said anything bad about her?" the former Cheetah Girls member said about Tran. "I actually know her… We're cool. The conversation was generally speaking of anyone who may 'possibly' be in a bad relationship. Please don't start drama that doesn't EXIST. If she's happy… so am I."
Tran then stepped in and, though she said she wasn't looking for drama, fueled the fire in this feud. "Unlike most of you… I could care less about the opinions of others.. Drama doesn't amuse me -- so yes @tamarbraxton I do have a voice, just not like yours," she Instagrammed on Monday. "However my bf I can’t speak for.. We all know he has no chill. Just like everyone else out there -- he has an opinion. Have you ever thought to yourself how it may feel being judged for everything you do and half the time people have no clue what is going on?"
Getting a little feistier with her words, she added, "You people invest so much of your time in other people's lives and business and get mad when they have something to say back?! If you can dish it. You gotta be able to take it. A lot of you mistaken my quietness for stupidity, and that's fine because I don’t care what you think. Anyways-- I'm not here for the drama. What do you gain from the names you call me?"
