Charlie Sheen and Rihanna happened to be at the same restaurant last night in Los Angeles, but according to the former, the latter blew off the latter when it came to meeting up — which has since led to a war of words (and subtweets) on social media.
As Rap-Up points out, Sheen took to Twitter today (May 22) to lament the incident, saying that the pop star’s camp refused a meeting at Giorgio Baldi, citing the amount of paparazzi outside the restaurant.
Sheen’s fiancee, Brett Rossi, is a big fan of Rihanna, he said, though he “couldn’t pick her out of a line-up at gunpoint.” As such, she was a bit disappointed that the singer couldn’t take time to do a quick meetup — and Sheen even more so.
In fact, Sheen’s unhappiness with the situation could not limited to 140 characters. After an initial link to the first few words of his post, Sheen migrated to Twitlonger for a bona fide rant about his distaste for Rihanna.
“Sorry we’re not KOOL enough to warrant a blessing from the Princess,” he wrote. “(or in this case the Village idiot).”
“no biggie for me,” he added, “it would have been 84 interminable seconds of chugging Draino and ‘please kill me now’ that I’d never get back.”
But according to Rihanna, she didn’t even know the couple was there. In a direct message to a fan that said fan took a screencap of for the world to see, in which she claimed that no one asked to meet her or take photos.
Additionally, she made her own comments on Twitter. “If that old queen don’t get ha diapers out of a bunch…” she tweeted, following with a quick reply to another user that Sheen had recognized her in a wig, seemingly going against his assertion that he couldn’t have picked her out in a crowd.[tweet https://twitter.com/rihanna/status/469535330014490624]
The last word, at the moment, goes to Sheen, who went as far as heading to TMZ to make yet another statement. “do the good Queen a favor and tend to the dungeon in my Castle,” he wrote, also asserting at English was not Rihanna’s “primary language.”
Prior to the string of attention from the Sheen incident, Rihanna has been laying low. Currently, her only scheduled tour dates are not until August, when she hits the road with Eminem for a short trek across the U.S.
