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.

Lynn explained that she was shocked and unsure of why Baker blocked her, but she let loose her fury and began to take jabs at Baker in her mentions.

Lynn then asked Baker to be civil and, ironically, squash their issue privately.

Baker has yet to publicly respond to Lynn and Lynn has gone quiet on the matter now, leaving us and many other fans scratching our heads and wondering what went wrong between these two old friends.

But the story doesn’t end there. Read what Lynn had to say in the end about her beef with Baker after the cut.

    Someone needs to invent an app that blocks you from posting on social media when you’re intoxicated, in your feelings or airing grievances that should be private. That’s a million dollar idea.

      My thoughts exactly. And I hope Ms. Baker stays classy and ignore this overgrown crybaby.

      Right…….Classy not trashy!!! WHO’S true colors are showing now in the mist of all that SHADE, and YOU have to wonder why YOU where ever BLOCKED??? YOU should be ASHAMED of YOURSELF!!!! {-_-}

      Totally agree with you on inventing an app just for privacy. Everybody don’t need to know if you are having a disagreement or not. They are too old for this and they need to sit down and talk like grown mature women.

    Women – they just can’t get along too long! Both are too old for this high school nonsense.

    I am not an expert by any means in social media or online marketing for that matter. But I would guess some times celebrities especially don’t always personally manage all of their social media accounts.

    Perhaps the best way for a friend of a celebrity to contact them is by picking up the phone and calling their cell phone directly? Or a friend could send another friend a card or an email? Perhaps Anita Baker is going through something of a personal matter that she is focused on at the time and is blocking all social media mail? It looks like Cheryl may have tried to call Anita?

    Whatever the case, I personally would be interested in hearing a new song collaboration with Cheryl Lynn and Anita Baker. Perhaps some good can come out of what is hopefully a misunderstanding or rush to judgement by Cheryl Lynn?

    Hope they are both doing well in health and finances.

      i agree, Cheryl must have been really guilty or hurt to keep writing and throwing jabs or just plain ole Needy.

        Yeah I’m not sure? But I wish them both joy and happiness.
