Disney Channel Stars Who Didn’t Get Along In Real Life


If you want to know just how talented Disney
Channel stars are, look no further than their convincing on-screen friendships. Because in reality, when the cameras stopped
rolling, they couldn’t get along no matter how hard they tried. There was nothing simple about the epic feud
between Lindsay Lohan and Hilary Duff. All of the butterfly clips in the world couldn’t
hold together their fractured relationship. Their love triangle with Aaron Carter is so
significant in teen celeb history that it should have its own star on the Hollywood
Walk of Fame. The saga began in 2001 when Carter started
dating Duff on his 13th birthday. A year and a half later, he dumped the Lizzie
McGuire star and started dating Lohan. They were together for a few months before
he went back to Duff, who ultimately dumped him when he reportedly cheated on her with
someone else. After that, it was no-holds-barred for these
Disney stars. Lohan reportedly spread lies about Duff to
her A Cinderella Story co-star Chad Michael Murray, made fun of her on Saturday Night
Live, and ranted about her on the set of Mean Girls. Duff finally set the record straight in a
2008 Allure interview, saying, “I’ve never stolen anyone’s boyfriend!…[Lohan]
was talking about it, and I wasn’t. It made us both look bad and put up a big
weirdness. Really she was just a girl my age. We are fine now, by the way.” Sounds like this feud is so yesterday. “So yesterday! So yesterday!” In 2015, Tumblr was the Holy Grail of teen
drama. Young Hollywood notoriously used the platform
to spread rumors and spill some pretty scalding tea. This was absolutely the case for Debby Ryan,
who revealed that she may or may not have been feuding with her Jessie co-star Skai
Jackson. In the Tumblr post in question, a user claimed
that Jackson accused Ryan of bullying her and of having a secret Twitter account where
she spread hate and rumors about the star. Ryan admitted that she understood why a 12-year-old
would be insecure about her co-star who was the lead of the show as well as a producer
and director. She also revealed that she tried to make the
set as “joyful” as possible by giving the younger cast members gifts and taking them
to amusement parks. Unfortunately, as she put it, “Bitterness is not fixable by roller coasters
and treats.” It appeared that Ryan was blaming Jackson’s
parents for the feud, even though she didn’t name names. As she wrote, “It’s unprofessional to slander coworkers
online, but if I had one wish for every child that’s an actor, especially those that tend
to be the mouthpiece for parental maliciousness, I’d wish for complete contentment, emotional
security, and that they’d somehow find the joy in telling stories.” For most of their lives, Selena Gomez and
Demi Lovato were best friends. They first worked together on Barney & Friends
in 2002, and by the time they starred together in Princess Protection Program, they were
inseparable. But then it happened: the “ask Taylor” heard
round the world. In 2010, Lovato was standing outside her hotel
in London when she snidely remarked “ask Taylor” to a fan who questioned her about Gomez. This was clearly a shade-filled reference
to Gomez’s relationship with Taylor Swift. To be fair, at the time, Lovato was struggling
with addiction, and Gomez ultimately blamed herself for their falling out. As Gomez told Seventeen in 2014, “I’ve known her since we were seven, and we
did fall apart for a while. She was going through things and I was so
young and it was confusing. I processed it saying, ‘OK, I don’t understand
what she’s going through so I’m just going to do this.’ I don’t think it was fair, and I’m so happy
that I have her back in my life now.” Since then, the pair have had their ups and
downs, with Lovato unfollowing Gomez on Twitter in 2014 before smoothing things over the following
year. Nonetheless, they’ve always supported each
other when it comes to the big stuff, including Gomez’s kidney transplant and Lovato’s relapse. Bella Thorne and Zendaya have been close friends
since their Disney period, but strangely enough, in the early days of Shake It Up, they didn’t
get along. In a 2017 interview with J-14, Thorne revealed, “Zendaya and I were put in a very unfortunate
position where we were kind of forced to compete against each other, which made the whole first
season of the show just very awkward for us. We wanted to love each other, but yet we were
constantly being put against each other. It was, ‘Who’s better at this?’ and ‘Who’s
better at that?'” Thorne didn’t elaborate about who was actually
pitting the girls against each other. Maybe it was Disney execs or simply societal
pressures. We’ll never know for sure, but it’s all water
under the bridge now. The pair had an emotional, tear-filled conversation
during Season 2 where they laid it all out on the table and made amends, and according
to Thorne, that’s when they became best friends. “What is the best part about working together
again?” “Probably just getting to have our good old
girl talks again.” Miley Cyrus and Emily Osment played best friends
on Hannah Montana, which is a true testament to their acting abilities. Because in reality, the pair didn’t actually
get along, at least according to Cyrus’ 2009 memoir Miles To Go. Cyrus claimed that she tried to be real-life
friends with her on-screen BFF, but they always ended up arguing. As she put it, “The show felt real to me, and I wanted my
relationship with Lilly to feel real, too. I knew it didn’t have to, show business is
show business, but I was disappointed. There were times when I didn’t think we could
ever be friends. We just couldn’t figure out how to get along.” Sometimes you can’t have the best of both
worlds, but it seems like whatever feud the pair had wasn’t eternal. In the years since the show ended, Osment
started randomly sliding into Cyrus’ Twitter timeline. And by 2018, Cyrus was retweeting a photo
that Osment posted while wishing she could reunite with her Hannah Montana family. Nostalgia will get you every time. The Cheetah Girls were a driving force of
female empowerment and unyielding friendship. They rivaled Josie and the Pussycats and the
Spice Girls when it comes to rock ‘n’ roll girl power. Simply put, they all knew how to pull off
some cheetah print and female empowerment. Unfortunately, things got a little dark for
these Disney stars, and we’re not even talking about that time Adrienne Bailon almost married
Rob Kardashian. “I have my ex-boyfriend’s name on my butt,
on my bottom. Not my favorite tattoo, and that’s the one
I definitely want to get removed.” The core of the conflicts appeared to stem
from the fact that some of The Cheetah Girls were already an existing girl group called
3LW before they brought in Raven-Symoné. In an interview with the National Ledger,
Simoné admitted that there were “territorial issues” and “catfights” when she reunited
with the cast for the second movie, especially because the other girls bonded on tour without
her. “Okay, yeah, my picture is bigger than everybody
else’s, but hey, I did write the songs.” “Hold up, those were my ideas, too.” Perhaps tellingly, Simoné did not return
for the third film. High School Musical’s Sharpay and Ryan Evans
weren’t just musical collaborators who devoted every ounce of their energy to the theater. They were also best friends, except that they
actually weren’t. In 2017, Ashley Tisdale reunited with her
HSM co-star Lucas Grabeel in a video for her YouTube channel. It was then that the truth finally came out:
the on-screen siblings actually hated each other while filming High School Musical. “We were not close. We were not good friends. Let’s be honest, okay? It’s been ten years, we can totally talk about
this now. We hated each other.” Tisdale revealed that part of the problem
was that they didn’t really know each other. She even admitted that her real personality
was similar to Sharpay’s. And as fans know, Sharpay has some, shall
we say, less than desirable qualities. Ultimately, it all worked out happily, as
Tisdale and Grabeel became extremely close after HSM wrapped. “I’ve always had a love for you. You’re literally, like, my twin brother.” “I love you, too.” In the golden days of the Disney Channel,
two sets of brothers reigned supreme: the Sprouses and the Jonases. The former rose to popularity on The Suite
Life of Zack and Cody and the latter blew up with Camp Rock. Though there’s no indication that these stars
didn’t get along while under contract with the network, a feud certainly emerged once
they were free from the Mouse House. The drama started in 2013 when Joe Jonas penned
an essay for New York Magazine that slammed his time with Disney and trashed the show
Jonas as, quote, “weird slapstick humor that only a 10-year-old would laugh at.” He also explained, “Being a part of the Disney thing for so long
will make you not want to be this perfect little puppet forever. Eventually, I hit a limit and thought, ‘Screw
all this I’m just going to show people who I am.'” This sentiment didn’t sit well with Dylan
Sprouse, who claimed that Joe was a “bad artist” if he bought into Disney’s, quote, “rigid
structure to achievement.” As he wrote in a Tumblr post, “First, I think it’s bulls— that they
were being robbed of choice or creativity. If they wanted too, they could have told Disney
‘NO.’ Cole and I did this hundreds of times and we ended up all right. The only reason they didn’t is because, like
many of the people on that channel, I think they fell for the allure of fame.” Jake T. Austin and Selena Gomez played siblings
on Wizards of Waverly Place, and by all accounts, it seemed like they were great friends. Hints of trouble between the two only started
to come to light when Gomez signed on for the gritty film Spring Breakers the same year
that Wizards was coming to an end. Apparently, Austin wasn’t thrilled that Gomez
was leaving the network. In a since-deleted tweet, he clearly threw
some shade at his on-screen sister for taking on a new role by posting, “When an artists’ definition of ‘growing with
their fans’ is creating content they aren’t even allowed to see…” Gomez didn’t publicly acknowledge Austin’s
comment, but she did fiercely defend her decision to take on the controversial role while doing
press for Spring Breakers’ press run. In March 2013, she told Collider that her
mother brought her the script, which made her think seriously about stepping out of
her comfort zone. That same month, she told Reuters, “I want to challenge myself and (my choices)
may not be appropriate for a young audience. I’m choosing movies that I feel are artistically
fun and creative.” Though Austin seemed angry that Gomez wanted
to shed her Disney roots, he did ultimately support her when she got a kidney transplant
in 2017. Perhaps it was all just a small sibling spat. Rowan Blanchard is not your average Disney
star. The Girl Meets World actress has been outspoken
about women’s rights, even talking to New York Magazine about intersectional feminism
years before she could legally vote. She wasn’t afraid of the heavy hand of Disney,
either. Instead of staying quiet, she opened up about
her queer identity to Wonderland Magazine. Considering her activism, it shouldn’t be
surprising that she reportedly took issue with her Girl Meets World co-star Uriah Shelton. In an interview with M Magazine, Shelton admitted
that he’s friends with most of the cast, but as for Rowan, he noted that she doesn’t necessarily
like him and that they have a lot of differences. “Differences” are a nice way to put it. Shelton has a history of liking anti-feminist
posts online, and it’s pretty hard to find someone who’s more feminist than Blanchard. It’s also worth noting that Shelton was given
a restraining order in 2017 after allegedly kicking a woman in the stomach. Despite their differences, Shelton told M
Magazine that he doesn’t have anything against Blanchard, though she’s probably too busy
slaying fashion Instagram to care. Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Nicki Swift videos about your

  1. It cracks the hell outta me when videos like this ALWAYS have a picture of Miley and Emily together as thumbnails. 😂😂😂

  2. More like Raven and Killie did not get along. Recently Raven and Addrine were scene in a womens march together, and have a better friendship than the other 2.

  3. Lots of people dont get along with their coworkers at first. It takes time and often is just misunderstanding them. Hollywood is no different. I wish they would figure that out before they post something shady and then the tabloids blow it out of proportion.

    Me and by best friend were coworkers. I thought he hated me and so we didnt get along for about three months because I was defensive. Then it downed on me that he just has a weird, sarcastic personality. Once I figured that out, we were able to start communicating and gradually became best friends. If I would have over reacted and talked crap about him, we would have never gotten to that breakthrough. I would have never learned the skill of sarcasm and that would have been a real loss to me.

  5. I remember when Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan’s feud was the most talked about thing in the teen world at the time.

  6. I think Dylan Sprouse is unable to realize that the Jonas Brothers probably faced a whole lot more pressure than he and his brother did. I've never listened to their music but I always thought it was odd the way they were marketed for their sexuality via the whole purity ring bullshit that. Every few years there's a star or group that kids make worldwide stars, and the Jonas Bros. were it at one point. Raking in millions for Disney, there were no doubt tons of people controlling their image and what they can/can't do.

  7. Hillary and Lindsay though 🚀 I actually published a similar top 5 video similar to this on my page, Disney is a great topic

  8. If it’s not ever Miley and Emily on the picture it’s Jennette and Ariana 😒 Also I know Jen and Ari are nick stars but whenever there’s a video about tv stars who didn’t get along they are always on it
