Just two weeks after Tia Mowry exclusively told In Touch Weekly of how “mean girl” Charlize Theron snubbed her at SoulCycle, an insider at the trendy spin studio has confessed the Oscar winner was furious—and tried to get the Sister, Sister star banned from the fitness hotspot!
“Charlize came in so pissed off after Tia went to the tabloids about her, and she demanded we bar Tia from ever coming back,” a SoulCycle insider revealed.
“When the manager refused, Charlize just got angrier and said she’d go to the top to make it happen.”
Tia Mowry Tells In Touch—“Charlize Theron Is Mean!”
As In Touch previously reported, the 36-year-old said Charlize “wasn’t very nice to [her].”
“I said, ‘Hi,’ and she actually rolled her eyes and said, ‘Oh my god,’” Tia explained. “I wasn’t over-the-top. I know how to approach another celebrity. Charlize was just mean. I’m just being honest.”
According to the SoulCycle insider, Charlize was equally “honest” in her appraisal of Tia. The source claims the Oscar winner said, “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 your studio?”
The situation was then turned over to management, though a solution has yet to be presented.

“This just feels like a vendetta because Tia spoke up,” the insider tells DishNation.
“Charlize used to be kind of quiet and chill when she came to spin, but it looks like dating Sean Penn isn’t doing her any favors.”
