    Rihanna, Chris Brown In Twitter War

    Feud over alleged infidelities.

    And the toxic cycle continues: the world’s most exhausting on-again, off-again couple, Rihanna and Chris Brown, are waging a Twitter war of words over alleged infidelities, after both were spotted partying with exes in the past week. On Thursday, Rihanna uploaded an Instragram that read: “If I drop all of my hoes for you and we still don’t work out you owe me some hoes.” Brown responded on Friday by tweeting “She’s not mine if she’s everybody elses.” The spat comes after months of engagement rumors, sparked by the (former?) couple’s appearance at the Grammy’s, where the 25-year-old songstresses sported bling on her ring finger.
