Jen Lilley Claims She Kept Maxie From Being Killed Off General Hospital!





A social media spat erupted on Twitter earlier today, between Days of Our Lives newcomer Jen Lilley and General Hospital's Kirsten Storms, both of whom have portrayed the immensely popular character of Maxie Jones.

Lilley tweeted that her new Days of Our Lives character, Theresa “could kick Maxie’s ass with one hand tied behind her back.” When a fan brought the tweet to Storms' attention she tweeted back “Maybe her Maxie. But not mine.”



At some point, Storms' former DAYS and Dirty Soap co-star Farah Fath got in on the drama, which saw, among other things, Lilley claiming she is the reason the character of Maxie wasn't killed off. Read the exchanges after the jump!
