If there wasn't a feud before, this should definitely get one going.

Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande took to Twitter on Thursday to refute claims that she makes a higher salary than "Sam & Cat" co-star Jennette McCurdy. The response comes days after McCurdy tweeted that she missed the recent Kids' Choice Awards because of an "unfair situation" at Nickelodeon.

Let the verbal cat fight begin.

Rumors have swirled all week that the alleged salary dispute was canceling the popular kids show, prompting Nickelodeon to issue a statement to Entertainment Weekly saying the show is just on hiatus after a long production schedule.

Grande had remained quiet on the subject until Thursday.

"Jennette and I agreed upfront that we would be treated equally on this show in all regards (as we should be, considering we each work just as hard as the other on this show)," Grande tweeted. "The rumors circulating about our contracts and our salary not being equal are absolutely ridiculous and false. I don't know who's putting these idiotic quotes out there but I thought I'd straighten it out and try to end this nonsense."

She added, "As far as the show goes, I don't know what's happening because I'm not directly involved with the problem but I just wanted to address this one rumor in particular because I am NOT making more money than my co-star, nor do I think I should be. So we can all move on and get out of our heads that this was a money thing cause I don't play like that at all. I am, have always been and always will be about equality and fairness."

Grande's words are in stark contrast to those tweeted by McCurdy earlier this week.

Addressing her absence from Nickelodeon's awards show, McCurdy wrote, "I was put in an uncomfortable, compromising, unfair situation (many of you have guessed what it is) and I had to look out for me. I chose to not go because sticking up for what is right and what is fair is what my mom taught me is ALWAYS the most important thing."
