Things are getting heated between Dionne Warwick and Wendy Williams.

Listen to your favorite music now on RADIO.COM. 

The unlikely feud all started earlier this week when Williams claimed on her talk show that Warwick doesn’t like her. “She doesn’t like me though, I know she doesn’t like me,” Williams said.

“She’s been here. She’s a friend to the show. She’s a friend to the show ’cause she has something to promote and we’re the social influencers and she’s smart,” Williams added. “But, once she gets off the show, you know she’s probably like, ‘B****.’ It’s okay, Ms. Warwick, it’s okay.”

“I totally believe that she is doing her own tweeting, but I think that [Warwick's niece] Brittani is her right hand,” Williams said. She then shifted her tone referencing Warwick’s 2002 arrest for possession of marijuana and claimed the singer tweets came “after midnight, a little bud, a little Chardonnay.”

Williams continued: “Well, you remember a few years ago, Aunt Dionne was stopped at the Miami airport trying to get back to Jersey and you know, Jersey now has the bud. But, Miami is ‘buddier.’ TSA stopped aunt Dionne and opened up a lipstick tube and found four, excuse me, 11 pre-rolled joints. Oh yeah, they got the dog on it [and] it was weed.”

Warwick caught wind of Williams’ comments and took to Twitter to address them. “A friend alerted me that Wendy Williams was spending a lot of not nice time speaking on me,” she wrote.

“I tuned in to her show to catch the last few minutes of her speaking about me and as in the past she seems not to be able to speak without maliciously made comments.”

Warwick continued: “My hope is my name will refrain from being spoken or thought of by her as this conversation was held a few years ago letting her know there was nor would be any need for her to say the name Dionne Warwick for any reason. I don’t believe one has to be mean to get noticed.”

Williams has yet to address Warwick’s tweets.
