Today's celebrity feud is between CHARLIE SHEEN and RIHANNA. It started when they happened to be dining at the same restaurant the other night. Charlie was there with his fiancée, who wanted to meet Rihanna, so he sent a note to her table. However, Rihanna declined and Charlie later went on Twitter to slam her saying, "no biggie for me; it would have been 84 interminable seconds of chugging Drano and 'please kill me now' that I'd never get back. My Gal, however, was NOT OK with it. Nice impression you left behind." After scolding Rihanna about courtesy, Charlie added, "Actually, it was a pleasure NOT meeting you...I'm guessing you needed those precious 84 seconds to situate that bad wig before you left the restaurant." Apparently feeling she had a chance in a Twitter war with Charlie, Rihanna responded, "Goooorrrrrrlllllll......If that old queen don't get ha diapers out of a bunch..." Charlie issued a response to Rihanna via TMZ in poem form, saying it was clear that English is NOT her primary language, thanking her for recognizing him as Royalty and asking her if she'd tend to the dungeon in his Castle. Charlie signed off by saying, "later Doosh!"
