Had cooler heads not prevailed, a backstage brawl involving two hip-hop entourages -- one belonging to Rick Ross, the other Kreayshawn -- might have been the big story at this year's VMAs, held Sunday (Aug. 28) in L.A. Instead, the two camps only exchanged words, stopping short of physical violence.

While Kreayshawn recently told MTV that she has no beef with Ross, the 'Gucci Gucci' rapper has dissed the Maybach Music Group founder at least twice, insinuating he's "fake" in a televised freestyle and insulting his weight in a video posted last week on Ustream.

"Oh my god -- VMA wildness," the female MC said during Sunday night's altercation, as Ross' posse appeared to be led away by security. "Nobody likes Kreayshawn, but it's OK. We all have fun. We all have fun out here. Things are getting a little too serious, though. We had some jokes."

Kreayshawn may find the whole thing funny, but in the video below, Ross doesn't appear to be laughing.
