G.O.O.D Music's Teyana Taylor has stepped forward to clear the air on her issues with Rihanna following a publicized Twitter dispute this week.
According to Taylor, she was the victim in the Twitter sparring and singled out by RiRi's notorious bullying antics.
"I really don't understand either," Taylor said referring to what Rihanna's issues are with her. "I've been in the studio, recording my album, minding my business, trying to stay focus and whatever. One day, yesterday, I was randomly on my Instagram page and I had heard she made a video and I'm not following her on Instagram so I didn't see it. I went to Twitter, someone sent me the video and I just thought it was really harsh. ... I know her very well and I made that very clear in my tweets. I made that very clear. ... I think that her fans are loud and they condone her behavior and she does this to everybody. And it's not always fun and games all the time ... You clapped and I clapped back. That's what that was. You didn't think that it would go as far as it did, but she can't do that to everybody. I do think she's a cyber bully. I really do. I think she's a cyber bully. And I think she has dope music--You know I'm not no hater. Dope music is dope music. She's a pretty girl, but that don't mean that you can just bully anybody. It don't work like that." (Hot 97)
Teyana also questioned why RiRi would place so much focus and attention on her when she is allegedly worth nearly $100 million.
"We all know that especially with the net worth those are inaccurate. She went all the way online, a girl that's worth $90 million, went all the way online to find the lowest net worth, which is false," Taylor added. "Let's get deeper because remember she's worth $90 million. So, everybody thinks she's worth $90 million. She ain't got time, but you had time to go on Google. You had time to fix up pictures. You had time to make me your main picture, but yet you still tweet 'I'm not gonna at her. I'm not gonna make her famous' -- I'm gonna work hard, my sh*t is gonna pop regardless. So, this wasn't no publicity stunt. This wasn't no trying to get no free publicity." (Hot 97)
Taylor appeared to catch feelings toward a clip RiRi posted onto her Twitter page yesterday (September 24) and did not hesitate to strike.
"Don't play wit me @rihanna fuck all this industry sh*t, YOU & I know each other VERY well. Throwing subs 4 wat? u got my #, don't show off.," she tweeted Tuesday (September 24).
"y'all could bully everybody else & get away wit that sh*t but that sh*t ain't gone work ova here. so y'all could miss me with that NAVY sh*t"
"i sing caught in the rapture on IG then she posts her boy singing the same song, the same part, with curly hair and a snap back??? #PETTY"
"petty is petty and shade is shade, b*tch knew what the f*ck she was doing."
"WHY IS THE NAVY LETTIN MY "IRRELEVANT" A** GET THEM SO UPSET? YOU MAD OR NAH? MATTER FACT HOW DID YALL FIND MY "IRRELEVENT" TWITTERPAGE? LOL" (Teyana Taylor's Twitter)
RiRi resorted to throwing out subliminal disses aimed at Teyana's head.
"Screaming in an empty room! #dontfeedtheanimals"
""@RihannaNavyRD: LOOOOOL ´´Rih´´ is trending Topic #Worldwide" #NAVY"
"I hate broke b*tches" (Rihanna's Twitter)
