Celebrity feuds that ended on friendly terms

Sweet Spot

Some famous feuds do have a happy ending — sorry, Kanye West and Taylor Swift ,we’re not talking about you. But Swift did make up with longtime frenemy Katy Perry.

In May, Perry sent Swift an olive branch (yes, a real branch!) and a note to finally put an end to their bad blood. Things first got rocky between the pop stars in 2014 — these ladies can hold a grudge. In an interview, Swift said her song “Bad Blood” was inspired by a former friend who tried to sabotage her tour: “She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me.”

Although Swift didn’t name names, the two threw major shade on social media. Four years later, Perry stepped up. Swift thanked her, and the pair have moved on to a friendlier place, awww.

Recently, Howard Stern mended fences with former rival David Letterman. In a sit-down for his show “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction,” Letterman addressed the lingering pain from the shock jock’s personal attacks years before. In response, Stern said: “I was just a young man full of rage and I was angry. I was angry with you, that you were on television, that you had an audience. There was no rhyme or reason to it.”

Things escalated when Stern began bashing Letterman and his wife, Regina Lasko. Therapy ultimately led Stern to apologize and reconcile with Letterman and himself. High-five to being friends again.

Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson and Vin “I am Groot” Diesel had drama of their own. The Rock called out a Fast and Furious co-star last year with a cryptic message that had everyone scratching their heads. Johnson wrote, “Some [male co-stars] conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t. The ones that don’t are too chicken s— to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses.” Whoa, talk about fighting words. Turns out Johnson was referring to Diesel! However, the actors were able to squash their differences with Diesel, saying, “We still love each other, that’s my boy.” Thank goodness the beef is over because choosing between Team Johnson and Team Diesel would be a tough choice.
