Amy Johnson

It may seem like the rich and famous would have less to worry about considering their status but they just can’t stop themselves from a bit of in-fighting, often to the delight of us mere mortals.

From public social media shaming to sly digs, this year has seen quite the spectrum of celebrity spats - and here's six of the biggest.

Ending her detailed post of how she supposedly caught her out with "It's .........Rebekah Vardy's account", Rooney set the internet alight with the message that launched one thousand memes and thus Wagatha Christie was born. Vardy has has strenuously denied the claims while Rooney has stayed quiet about the issue online ever since.

Mel B later went on to say that Horner "probably hated" her for what she'd said. Although, any behind-the-scenes drama was seemingly put to bed when they went on their successful UK tour later in the year.

Amanda Holden and Phillip Schofield reportedly came to blows when he stopped her from filling in on This Morning when Holly Willoughby went to host I'm A Celebrity last year. Holden confirmed a dispute had happened earlier in the year by claiming she had offered him an olive branch but that he hadn't responded to her.

On top of that, when rumours about Schofield causing division backstage at ITV began circulating at the end of the year, Holden added fuel to the fire by implying that more could come to light.

Taylor Swift made her issues with Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun public when she alleged on her social media accounts that they were not allowing her to play her own songs live ahead of her appearance at the American Music Awards.

Borchetta's label Big Machine owns Swift's masters from her first six albums and Braun became involved when his company Ithaca Holdings bought the record label this year. However, Big Machine records disputed the claims, saying they were based on "false information" and the popstar ultimately did play tracks owned by the company during her AMAs performance.

Natalie Portman was quick to correct Moby when he implied in his memoir that they had dated when the Star Wars actor was 20 while the musician was in his 30s. She said her memories of that time was of "a much older man being creepy with me when I just had graduated high school" and that she had actually just turned 18.
