5/30 Update: A representative for Cheryl Lynn contacted Billboard with the following information: "Cheryl Lynn does not have a Twitter or Facebook account. The individual sending the communications is an imposter pretending to be Cheryl Lynn. Twitter has been made aware of this situation several times over the last two years." In short, this beef was never cooking.
The realm of Twitter and Instagram beef has become de rigueur for rappers, pop singers, and athletes looking to express their righteous indignation (and maybe publicize an album or new song in the meantime). Classic R&B singers, though, are less known for their provocative social media presence -- until today, that is.
