Did you even know these two used to be besties? With all Taylor’s high-profile hookups, feuds, and squad vacations it’s easy to forget.

There’s no evidence of any major fall-out between these two — sometimes friends just grow apart.

The reality TV star and the former Spice Girl were once so close they were rumored to participate in “kinky” threesomes. 

We do know Mel for sure showed up to one of Kim’s baby showers, so that’s pretty sweet.

Kim, though, reportedly failed to show Mel support during her messy divorce from Stephen Belafonte.

These two were thick as thieves before Selena went on an epic unfollow binge. The “Bad Liar” singer explained that she felt the need to remove “toxic” people from her life. Apparently, that included her best Jenner friends.

Though we don’t know for sure what caused this falling out, it’s a good bet it has something to do with the KarJenners' very close relationship with Selena’s ex Justin Bieber.

Katy turned her back on RiRi when she began spending way too much time with Katy’s nemesis: Taylor Swift. 

Rihanna and Taylor collaborated on music and attended Coachella together.

These two could have been the original blonde power couple of the ‘90s if things had just gone a little bit differently.

The former friends decided to take their relationship to the next level and went on an official date to the MTV Movie Awards in 1989, but Christina left the event with another man.

These two seemed like the closest of friends… until rumors accused Katy of only hanging around Kristen to get to Robert Pattinson. 

When the Twilight stars called it quits, Katy reportedly wasted no time and swooped in on her “friend’s” ex.

Be still our hearts. These two could have been one of the hottest celeb bromances ever, but sources reported that Andrew felt he was a “serious” actor as opposed to Robert’s body of work.

Oh, what could have been. These two just began collaborating on raising mental health awareness when William reportedly learned of a 2013 song in which Gaga calls William’s mother Princess Diana “another dead blonde.”

Let’s hope these two can hash things out — this is one celebrity friendship we’d follow anywhere.

These two used to be tight. They hung out all the time and turned up to big events together — the former Spice Girl was even a guest at Katie’s wedding to Tom Cruise!

But over the years the BFFs began to appear in public less and less, prompting rumors that Victoria thought Tom was just too “weird.”

Now, Katie follows her former bestie on Instagram, but Victoria hasn’t bothered to return the favor.

These two go back to Taylor’s pre-squad days, and maybe that’s the problem. Tay-Tay had a small part in Miley’s Hannah Montana movie and they performed a sweet duet together at the 2009 Grammys, but they slowly grew apart.

After Taylor became famous for her #GirlSquad, Miley began making disparaging comments about the entire squad concept and then bashed Taylor’s “Bad Blood” video for being too violent.

Would her views be different if Taylor had invited her into the group?

These two started making waves in 2014 when the entire internet wanted them to go out. They swore they were “just friends” but nobody has heard anything about the pair for a couple of years.

These two were close while filming their Nickelodeon show Sam & Cat, but after the show was canceled fans immediately suspected a feud between the former child stars.

Jennette finally came forward and admitted the former buddies didn’t always see eye-to-eye.

In 2016, Jennette was seen jamming out to one of Ariana’s songs in her car, but that’s the last time these ladies seem to have attempted to the bury the hatchet. Looks like it didn’t take.

This one is heavily denied by the ladies, but Nina left The Vampire Diaries right around the time her ex-boyfriend and TVD co-star Ian Somerhalder married Nikki.

The friends were rumored to be feuding for years before they finally said anything about it.

Selena Gomez and Bella Hadid

These are a few of my favorite things..

Poor Bella felt “hurt” by Selena’s whirlwind romance with Bella’s ex The Weeknd. 

Selena denied any wrongdoing by saying she was never friends with Bella in the first place — this photo proves otherwise.

Bella has now been linked to The Weeknd’s former friend, Drake.

So. Much. Drama.

Can you even remember when these two were actually friends? We swear, that happened.

Since then, these megastars have feuded over everything from backup dancers to John Mayer and there's no end in sight.
