Here are the celebrity tiffs that hogged the headlines in 2016.
1. Baron Geisler and Kiko Matos
Baron Geisler and Kiko Matos’s tiff is the only fight that ended with a fistfight.
The fight that started in a bar got Kiko punching the controversial actor.
“Baron Geisler went to stage and he wanted to jam. On the last time, me and my friends were telling him to step down. And then on the mic, he told us to get out of the bar. He was saying foul words and we didn't like it, so I stood up. And when I did that, I got Baron Geisler's attention."
After agreeing to settle their "differences" MMA style, the fight resulted to a draw with the two even kissing each other.

Both actors later on admitted that the fight was staged.
2. Jake Ejercito and Jaclyn Jose
To say that Jaclyn Jose was displeased after the unexpected revelation that Jake Ejercito was the biological father of Andi Eigenmann's daughter Ellie, would be a huge understatement.
Although no response was heard from Jake's end, Jaclyn kept on making snide comments on the latter's posts about Ellie.
In a reaction to a photo posted by Jake about “slaying all the dragons” for Ellie, Jaclyn posted on her Instagram account, “She will always [be] a princess before you and will always be. I slayed all the dragons before you. You could have slayed the dragons before this. But you chose not to. You can’t all of the sudden slay. You do not have the tool…”

3. Angel Locsin and Jessy Mendiola
This could very well be the most controversial tiff that involved a local male celebrity this year. It all started when rumors made rounds that Jessy Mendiola was seeing Angel Locsin's ex-boyfriend Luis Manzano.
Although the Luis and Angel had parted ways for a couple of months before the rumors started circulating, the latter's comment about "having nothing good to say" sent hers and Jessy's fans warring with each other.
Jessy, for her part, tearfully commented in a separate interview that she felt bad being called an "ahas."

4. Vina Morales and Avi Siwa
Former model Avi Siwa shocked the public when she took to Instagram to air her sentiments about Vina Morales's current boyfriend Marc Lambert, who happened to be the father of her daughter.
The 2009 FHM Magazine cover girl claimed that Marc is only sending P28,000 for their child. She claimed, however, that the amount is “not enough” given that he’s living a luxurious life in Switzerland and treating his girlfriend luxuriously to A-Lister trips abroad. Avi even threatened to take her sentiments to court.
Vina, for her part, refused to address the issues thrown by Avi.

7. Raymart Santiago and Claudine Barretto
After being okay a couple of months ago, estranged husband and wife Raymart Santiago and Claudine Barretto got into a spat anew after the latter accused the former’s nephew of mauling their son Santino.
Claudine even went as far as promising to “avenge” what happened to their son and claiming that their kids are calling Raymart a liar for defending his nephew.
Raymart, in an interview, claimed that what happened to Santino was a mere “away bata” and should not involve them. But Claudine maintained that what his 27-year-old nephew did to Santino is not the case.

Ping recounted in the said post that Baron peed on him while he was blindfolded even if it wasn’t part of the script.
While he initially shrugged off the accusations calling them mere “paninira,” Baron eventually apologized to Ping after the latter filed a complaint against him at the Professional Artist Managers Inc. The incident resulted to them being pulled out of the indie film.
