We love watching the drama of entertainment’s high and mighty battle each other with egos flaring, fighting their wars on air, on Twitter, in the courts or even through e-books. Why can’t they just settle them with their fists like regular folks? Here are 12 recent stories of feuding celebrities.
Daniel Tosh vs. Rob Dyrdek
Our most recent celebrity spat is between two young dudes who make their living entertaining young dudes. The feud got fired up when Tosh recently spoofed Dyrdek on his show, "Tosh.0." Dyrdek did not respond kindly, tweeting that he wanted to settle things the "old-fashioned way." He has since backed off, saying he reacted like a d-bag, and made fun of the "white guy clip show host beef" between him and Tosh. However, it all started a year ago with Tosh jabbing Dyrdek's show, "Ridiculousness," which he implied was a ripoff of his show. Dyrdek basically responded then by calling Tosh a modern day Bob Saget (host of "America's Funniest Home Videos").

Kevin Costner vs. Stephen Baldwin
Kevin Costner visited the small screen on the History Channel’s version of the Hatfield/McCoy feud, but he’s been involved in a more recent feud of his own. Stephen Baldwin of the famous Baldwin clan claims “Dances with My Money” Costner misled him into selling his shares of an oil-extractor device while a deal to sell them to BP was in the works. They are currently duking it out in a New Orleans federal court.

Matthew Fox vs. Dominic Monaghan
Matthew Fox of “Lost” fame and DUI infamy, has been accused by his ex-costar, Dominic Monaghan, of beating women. The rumble took place not in the street, but over Twitter when Monaghan was replying to a fan. Guess you can sling a lot of guff in under 140 characters.

Chevy Chase v. Dan Harmon
According to Deadline.com, Chevy Chase walked out on the last day of filming his scenes for the NBC show “Community.” Dan Harmon, the executive producer and creator, took it upon himself at the wrap party to get up in front of everyone and give a big “f--- you” speech to Chase. Chase didn’t take it lightly and left a harsh message on Harmon's phone, a message that was leaked to the Internet. Maybe Chase had the last word, as Harmon is not returning to the show as El Jeffe next year.

Courtney Love vs. Everyone
Lily Allen. Kelly Osbourne. Even the Muppets. All are targets of Courtney Love’s wrath. Her most recent feud was with Dave Grohl when she asserted that he was trying to hit on Love's daughter, Frances Bean Cobain. Grohl denied it, basically retorting that Love was cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs. Sadly, the biggest loser in this whole charade is Cobain, who is remarkably normal in light of her mother’s penchant for drama.

Mel Gibson vs. Joe Eszterhas
Mel Gibson, already trying to repair his image in Hollywood, wasn’t helped when the religious project he was working on with Joe Eszterhas (“Showgirls,” “Basic Instinct”) went kaput. Eszterhas wrote a long letter detailing Gibson's rants, slinging accusations of anti-Semitism and violent outbursts. Gibson released his own memo saying the great majority of Eszterhas' accusations were utter fabrications. Eszterhas then released a tape online of Gibson's rant during a dinner at Gibson's Costa Rica estate. And today, Eszterhas upped the ante by releasing an e-book about Gibson entitled “Heaven and Mel.” Your move, Mel.

Chuck Lorre vs. Charlie Sheen
Who knows why and who knows how, but we watched “Two and a Half Men” star Charlie Sheen and the show’s creator, Chuck Lorre, go at it like wildcats. While Ashton Kutcher replaced Sheen this season, Sheen is getting a second shot in the TV spotlight with his show, “Anger Management,” premiering in late June on FX.

Gabriel Aubry vs. Halle Berry
Breakups are rarely pretty. And it’s no different with Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry and her baby daddy, Gabriel Aubry. Stuck in the middle is their 4-year-old daughter, Nahla, a pawn in an ugly custody battle.

Chelsea Handler vs. Angelina Jolie
Don’t get in the way of besties. Chelsea Handler of “Chelsea Lately” is best friends with Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt's former gal. Now, of course, Brad is with Angelina and -- who really cares? Basically, Chelsea doesn’t like the man-stealing Angelina. No word from Angelina on whether or not she gives a damn.

Lady Gaga vs. Madonna
An aging star and a young star. Same kind of music. Like in the movie “Highlander,” there can be only one. Gaga, famous for her outlandish outfits, said she was heavily influenced by the music of Madonna and wrote a song called “Born this Way.” Not a believer that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Madonna dissed the song and called Gaga’s music “reductive.” Most recently, while performing “Express Yourself” (which included a sampling of Gaga’s “Born This Way”), Madonna said, “She’s not me!” Seems someone is insecure.

Kelly Osbourne vs. Christina Aguilera
A woman’s weight is a woman’s Achilles’ heel. Seems back in the day, Christina Aguilera wasn’t so nice to bat-eating Ozzy Osbourne's daughter Kelly, and called her fat. Fast forward to 2011. Aguilera is a little thicker, and Osbourne, going in for the kill with a verbal arrow, called her “a fat b----.” Too bad for us, Osbourne called an end to the feud in a column about body image she wrote for Glamour magazine. All of that fighting can work up a big appetite.

Jar Jar Binks vs. The Universe
You know him. You hate him. He's the worst "Star Wars" character of all time, and maybe the worst movie character of all time. Jar Jar Binks inspired plenty of blogs demanding his death. Like Rodney Dangerfield, he gets no respect. Does he deserve any?
