Rihanna's best friend Melissa Forde has landed in hot water after making a racist slur against Chris Brown's ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran.
Melissa Forde defended her superstar pal from fans of Chris Brown's ex – who is of Asian origin on Twitter.
But she has reignited the war of words between the two camps after using the term 'rice cake' to describe Karreuche, who is of Asian origin.
Keeping calm: Rihanna tried to quell the tension by tweeting her friend to 'stop it' after she seemingly made a racist remark about Chris Brown's ex Karrueche Tran on Wednesday night
Best friends: Melissa Forde (L), who has been friends with Rihanna since childhood, caused a stir when she launched her rant on the social networking site
Forde was telling a fan of Tran that it
was okay not to like Rihanna but that she shouldn't insult her best
friend before it all got a little too heated.
In the Instagram rant, she wrote: 'I get that you don’t like my Bfff
and trust you don’t have to cause the one thing you not liking us will
do is stop anything from moving forward!!
'You can be rice cake’s friend I
don’t give a f***, but keep up all this disrespectful talk and while
your fake profile having azz is typing on instagram MEE Melissa T Forde

Controversial words: Rihanna's best pal tweeted a fan using the controversial term 'rice cake' thought to be a dig at Chris Brown's ex-girlfriend Karrueche

She had also earlier tweeted: 'Every single one of y’all b*tchez are
soo f*****g dumb and obviously have nothing better to do. But lets be
VERYYY clear about one thing, nobody gives a rats a** about whatever the
f*** her name is… so be careful how you talk about my BFFF!! A n***a

Possibly sensing trouble, Rihanna tweeted to her friend: 'Melissa T Fooooorde! Stop it!!!'
Forde has been friends with Rihanna for years, and has reportedly known her since childhood.

War of words: Rihanna had a war of words against Chris Brown's ex earlier this year
It comes after the same term fuelled a huge Twitter war of words between Rihanna and Karreuche earlier this year.
The tension is said to have kicked off
when Rihanna posted a photograph of a bag of rice cakes wearing
sunglasses with gold earrings, and the caption, 'Ima a make u my b****.'
This was widely perceived as a jibe at Tran, who was dating Brown at the time.
Heading out: Chris Brown's on/off girlfriend Karrueche Tran stepped out in Los Angeles the same day the controversial comments were made
In the middle: The rapper has reportedly reignited his romance with Rihanna in the last few weeks
And Rihanna's remixed song Birthday Cake, featured sexually explicit lyrics: 'Remember how you did it, Remember how you fit it,
If you still wanna kiss it, Come, come, come and get it, Sweeter than a
rice cake, cake worth sipping.'
Rihanna is reportedly dating Chris Brown again – just weeks after the rapper finished his relationship with Tran.
And it seems Chris is not very happy with the situation.
He posted a sulky picture of himself, and tweeted: 'Feeling like s**t today!'
