Tia Mowry and Charlize Theron appear to be in the throes of a rather nasty cat fight that involves trendy spin classes at a place called SoulCycle. Now it seems Theron is hell-bent on getting Tia Mowry banned from the establishment.

Here’s how Page Six says it all went down.

Supposedly Tia Mowry approached Charlize Theron at one of these spin classes and introduced herself.

“I wasn’t over-the-top,” the Sister, Sister star said. “I know how to approach another celebrity. Charlize was just mean. I’m just being honest.”

Charlize Theron reportedly rolled her eyes when Mowry made her polite introduction. Therefore Tia ratted her out to the management for ‘being mean.’

“Charlize came in so pissed off after Tia went to the tabloids about her, and she demanded we bar Tia from ever coming back. When the manager refused, Charlize just got angrier and said she’d go to the top to make it happen,” a source claims.

This same source says Charlize said the following to SoulCycle management in her effort to get Tia Mowry removed from the studio. Her interaction with Mowry reportedly gave Theron doubts about her privacy being protected while in the spinning studio.

“This nobody who was famous for a minute 20 years ago can complain to the tabloids about me but I can’t expect you to protect me from hangers-on in your studio?”

Another source, however, claims this cat fight is nothing but pure conjecture.

“I do not know her,” Tia Mowry said at the L.A. premiere of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. “I do not know Charlize. I absolutely love her, she’s my ‘woman crush Wednesday,’ you can even see it on my Instagram!”

“I’m obsessed with her, I love her, it was definitely blown out of proportion,” Tia added. “So that’s all I’m going to say about that.”

So what do you suppose is the real scoop? Is the Snow White and the Huntsman star mean and trying to get Tia Mowry kicked out of SoulCycle? Is Tia now afraid that might happen, so she’s singing Charlize’s praises for the media?

It definitely sounds like a cat fight–the kind with words instead of bitch slaps and fingernail gashes, however. Stay tuned to see how this all turns out.
