Depending on who you ask, Anita Baker has long since had a reputation for being a Diva and not in a good way (remember that reported 2011 beef with Jill Scott?). The iconic 60-year-old was the subject of yet another unpleasant run-in last week, but this time it was with actress China McClain‘s mother.

The 19-year-old took to Twitter to call out the singer for what she says was a “disappointing” and “rude” encounter. Watch how it played out below.

And if you think Ms. Baker wasn’t going to respond, she did so, in a way that only she could.


McClain is currently starring in Salim and Mara Brock Akil‘s Black Lightning alongside Cress Williams (Scooter from Living Single) and Ms. Baker is prepping to hang up those legendary chops of hers in a farewell concert.
