Charlie Sheen Asked About Rihanna Feud On ‘WWHL’: “Oh, That Bitch”
Time hasn’t done too much to heal old wounds following a 2014 Twitter spat between Charlie Sheen and Rihanna.
The Two And A Half Men actor hit up Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday (January 11) to promote his new film, Mad Families, and was asked by Andy Cohen if he ever patched things up with RiRi. It seemed to take a few seconds for Sheen to even register who Rihanna was, but then he finally quipped, “Oh, that bitch.”
Backing up, Entertainment Weekly recapped the original drama between the two stars:
The feud in question stems back to a May 2014 missed connection between Sheen and Rihanna that the actor ranted about on Twitter. According to Sheen, he saw the singer at a restaurant while dining with his then fiancée Scottine Sheen (formerly Brett Rossi). He sent a request to Rihanna’s table to ask if he could introduce Scottine that was declined, citing too many paparazzi outside.
Sheen later tweeted, “oh and [Rihanna], Halloween isn’t for a while. but good on you for testing out your costume in public. it’s close; a more muted pink might be the answer, as in: none.”
He continued, “See ya on the way down (we always do) and actually, it was a pleasure NOT meeting you. Clearly we have NOTHING in common when it comes to respect for those who’ve gone before you. I’m guessing you needed those precious 84 seconds to situate that bad wig before you left the restaurant.”
Rihanna simply offered this response at the time:
If that old queen don’t get ha diapers out of a bunch…

Cut to last night’s WWHL, and Cohen declaring after Sheen’s “bitch” comment, “I think you just made it worse!”
Charlie’s only further thoughts on the matter were that Rihanna “abandoned common courtesy and common sense, you know?”
