Usually, music beefs are reserved for the younger stars of today’s music scene. But it looks like R&B veterans Anita Baker and Cheryl Lynn didn’t get that memo because the two singers ended up in a shocking online beef yesterday.

The drama all started when Lynn went on Twitter and revealed out of the blue that her longtime friend, Baker, had blocked her on the social media site.
