Victoria Justice and Ariana Grande were on the Nickelodeon show Victorious together from 2010 to 2013, so when it ended — as both their music careers took off — rumors started that the two were feuding.
“I would love to set the record straight because I feel these rumors have been going on for way too long,” Justice said on The Meredith Viera Show this week. “Basically, there was an article in Seventeen magazine where [Ariana] had said that she was bullied on set, and the magazine basically alluded to it being me. Once the article came out she texted me privately, and she was like, ‘Oh my gosh, I am so sorry. You know how the media twists words. I was not talking about you obviously, I was talking about someone on Broadway I had worked with.’ But once it got out there everyone thought that I was this bully and that I was mean to her, which couldn’t be further from the truth.”
Sharing that the rumors were really “unfair,” Justice concluded, “Hopefully, now she’s talked about it, I’ve talked about it, there is no feud. We can put this behind us now and we can practice what Frozen preaches, my friends, and let it go. Let’s let it go!”
