Cardi B says she, Offset have split up

Associated Press

Cardi B is no longer feeling the love after little more than a year of marriage to fellow rapper Offset.

She posted a video on Instagram saying that “things just haven't been working out between us for a long time.” The 26-year-old says “I guess we just grew out of love, but we're not together anymore.”

Cardi B says “it might take time to get a divorce.”

Offset responded “Y'all won.”

The couple got married in September 2017 and welcomed a baby girl in July.

Cardi B says she and her baby's father are really good friends and business partners.

Dunham apologizes

Lena Dunham is apologizing to actress Aurora Perrineau for defending a writer who Perrineau accused of sexual misconduct.

Writing Wednesday in The Hollywood Reporter, Dunham says she “did something inexcusable” in supporting producer and writer Murray Miller. Dunham says she didn't have the “insider information” that she claimed and was acting on “blind faith.”

She says she wanted to feel her workplace was safe. Miller worked on Dunham's “Girls” series.

She tells Perrineau, “I believe you, Aurora.” Dunham praised the 24-year-old actress and model's “bravery, openness, forgiveness, dignity and grace.”

Noah loses voice

Fans of “The Daily Show” got to see Trevor Noah host Tuesday night's Comedy Central broadcast. But they didn't get to hear him.

The reason: Noah has lost his voice and is under doctor's orders not to utter a word.

The show began as usual, with the theme song playing and the audience cheering as the South African-born comedian walked onto the set and sat at his desk. But when the camera pointed at the desk, the TV audience saw comedian Michael Kosta already there.

Speaking for Noah, Kosta told the audience that, indeed, the show “was a little different” in that Noah was ordered not to speak – or risk needing surgery.

He didn't elaborate on what caused the vocal problem or how long Noah will be unable to speak.
