No end in sight for performers’ long-standing feud
Veteran Singer (VS) has been in the industry longer than Seasoned Songstress (SS), but they often find their paths crossing because they share the same circle of friends. But while viewers often see them performing in the same events, little do they know that VS and SS don’t really see eye to eye on many issues—from personal beliefs to political affiliations. “VS refuses to see what a womanizer her user-friendly hubby is,” SS would often tell their common friends. On the other hand, VS insists, “SS just enjoys wreaking havoc on people’s lives, that’s why SS keeps making up exaggerated stories about my partner’s unproven infidelity.”
So, when SS and VS see each other at gigs and functions, they just ignore each other even in front of common friends.
As the spot-on saying goes, “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.” Mismo!
