Rihanna recently engaged in a social media feud with fellow singer Teyana Taylor and now the 25-year-old pop star is a being accused of cyber bullying.

Rihanna posted an Instagram video of her stylist Yusef Williams singing Anita Baker's "Caught Up In The Rapture" in a curly wig after Taylor,22, initially posted a video of herself singing the same song with her well known curly mane. Taylor lashed out at Rihanna and her best friend Melissa Forde on Twitter and both responded causing a feud to play out on the social networking website where Rihanna and Taylor became trending topics.

Months after Rihanna took to social media to post a cryptic image of herself and Forde laughing while watching fellow singer Ciara's "Body Party" a capella performance, Taylor insists she is a bully.

"For her to make a video like that it wasn't no coinkidink. 'Caught Up in the Rapture of Love' is not a recent song," Taylor told New York City radio station Hot 97. " She knew what she was doing. I do think she's a cyber bully, I really do."

 Williams, the stylist that appears in the controversial video that sparked the feud with Taylor insists Rihanna is no bully.

"Cyber bully is harsh word. She is focused, being Rihanna. She is not sitting around," Williams told EnStars. "She didn't grab her phone. She is the most kind and giving person. I just think for that to go the way it went, it was uncalled for."

The stylist went on to explain what prompted him to create the video singing the same song as Taylor in a long wig, running his fingers through his hair in the way that the 22-year-old New York City songstress did.

"Honestly, I just finished making the wig. I started making the video," Williams explained to EnStars. "It was amazing, no malicious intent towards Teyana. I just think it was uncalled for. Teyana killed that song."
