Rihanna's best friend Melissa Forde is in big trouble after making a racist slur against Chris Brown's ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran online, getting a telling off from the singer herself.
Ri Ri's childhood pal Melissa Forde defended her superstar buddy from fans of Chris Brown's ex, who is of Vietnamese origin, on Twitter, using the term 'rice cake' to describe Karreuche. She's reignited the war of words that began between the ladies in Chris' life some months ago, and Chris doesn't seem happy about it.
Rihanna attempted to alleviate tension by tweeting her friend to 'stop it' on Wednesday night ater Forde posted a rant on Instagram telling a fan of Tran that it was okay not to like Rihanna but that she shouldn't insult her best friend, before her comments got out of hand.
She wrote: "I get that you don’t like my Bfff and trust you don’t have to cause the one thing you not liking us will do is stop anything from moving forward!!
"You can be rice cake’s friend I don’t give a f***, but keep up all this disrespectful talk and while your fake profile having azz is typing on instagram MEE Melissa T Forde will be the one knocking on your door asking you to come talk face to face!" Oooh!
Rihanna quickly tweeted her best pal Melissa seemingly asking her to stop making the comments online: "Melissa T Fooooorde! Stop it!!!"
Forde had earlier tweeted: "Every single one of y’all b*tchez are soo f*****g dumb and obviously have nothing better to do. But lets be VERYYY clear about one thing, nobody gives a rats a** about whatever the f*** her name is… so be careful how you talk about my BFFF!! A n***a will always do what [HE] wants!!"
Use of the term 'ricecake' sparked trouble for the 'Umbrella' singer earlier this year. She is said to have posted a photograph of a bag of rice cakes wearing sunglasses with gold earrings to Twitter, adding the caption, "Ima a make u my b****." This was widely believed to be a direct dig at Karrueche.
Rihanna's remixed song 'Birthday Cake' also features sexually explicit lyrics that reference the slur:
"Remember how you did it?, Remember how you fit it?, If you still wanna kiss it, Come, come, come and get it, Sweeter than a rice cake, cake worth sipping."
Chris Brown has reportedly reignited his romance with Rihanna in the last few weeks, since splitting from Karrueche. But while Rihanna and Karrueche battle it out, Chris doesn't seem happy. He posted a sulky picture today and tweeted: "Feeling like s**t today!"
