"Cara and Ashley always had their ups and down before but it's over now," a source told the mag. "Their relationship just ran its course."

E! News said Cara "is enjoying being single and spending time with great friends."

The women still have several pictures together on their social media pages, including one of them kissing on Valentine's Day.

Reps for Cara, 27, and Ashley, 30, have not commented on the reports. 

The supermodel and "Pretty Little Liars" star were first linked in summer 2018 after being spotted kissing at a London airport.  Ashley continued to fuel speculation when she donned a gold necklace with the letters "C" and "A" separated by a star. They officially confirmed the relationship a year later. Around the same time, Ashley got a tattoo honoring Cara.

A post shared by Cara Delevingne (@caradelevingne) on

Last summer, there were rumors that the two secretly married in Las Vegas, although marriage records don't support that speculation.

In October 2019, Cara dished on the romance, telling Elle UK, "It just feels incredible when you're not alone, when you're facing the world with someone else."

"I don't want to be so secretive that people think I'm ashamed of anything. But I've never been in a relationship where things are so public, or where I posted pictures of someone else," she continued. "This seemed different. We had gotten to the point where we had kept it a secret, or at least not wanted attention, and now I feel like I'm not going to not be proud."

Erika Girardi defends police officer son against online hater

Erika "Jayne" Girardi clapped back hard against a social media hater who insinuated she's not fully supporting Black Lives Matter because of her son's profession.

On Tuesday, Erika joined the Instagram "Black Out," in which users shared blank black screens, a show of support for Black Lives Matter and peaceful protesting.

One particular user commented, "Your son is an officer!"

Erika shot back, "My son was brought up NOT to be racist. His job is to protect and serve ALL not just people that have his skin color."

In a parting shot, she added, "F–k you and stay off my page."

Many of Erika's 2 million followers applauded her fiery response. 

"People need to understand that being against police brutality doesn't mean you are against police," one person said.

Another added, "Man I thought I loved you before but hell yes."

After she shared more messages from people supporting her clap back on her Instagram Story, the reality TV star added that her initial critic had now "blocked" her on Instagram.

Erika typically shies away from sharing images of her son on social media, but she posted a picture of him in uniform on May 5. 

"People say we look alike," she wrote. "No, you can't comment."

She later told Andy Cohen that she posted the image to show her pride.

"I put him on Instagram and he's my best-performing post," she said. "He didn't choose this life, I chose this life, and you try to protect them. I don't care if he is an adult and he carries a gun and a badge. At the end of the day, he's still my boy, but I posted it and I'm glad I did. He is a very fine young man and I'm so proud."

Personality trait

Amanda Peet says she's a 'very jealous person'

Amanda Peet plays real-life double murderer Betty Broderick on the new season of the USA Network series "Dirty John." While the actress certainly doesn't harbor Betty's rage, she actually sees one similarity between herself and the woman she portrays.


"I'm a very jealous person too and she was really unfairly treated during the court proceedings and I can understand," Amanda told Page Six. "I mean, I haven't snapped myself but I'm very fascinated by what makes someone snap."

Betty's case made national headlines in 1989 after she gunned down her ex-husband, Daniel Broderick III, and his second wife, Linda Kolkena — something she never denied doing. Betty had supported Daniel though both medical and law school, and he eventually got his dream job. Daniel went on to hire Linda and filed for divorce from Betty after 17 years of marriage. He then married Linda, angering Betty.

Amanda found it intriguing to play Betty, especially considering their differing backgrounds. 

"My mom was a shrink and I grew up in a fairly open household. I didn't grow up in the social mores of the 50s. My dad told me when I was 8 years old, never rely on any man for your income. I didn't even know what the word income meant," she said. "He just kept saying to me and my sister never rely on a man for your income and I said, 'Well, can I rely on your income right now?'"

Betty was convicted of double murder in 1989 and is currently in prison.

Unrest video

Farrah Abraham takes credit for getting 20 L.A. looters arrested

On Monday night, the controversial reality TV star posted a video from a building across the street from a boarded up CVS store getting ransacked by looters. In the video, Farrah can he heard yelling at the people coming in an out of the store while filming them with her phone.

Toward the end of the video, police are seen responding.

"I'm thankful I use my voice for justice, I call police, I record and turn into police & with over 20 people in jail & 3 cars turned in," she captioned the video. "I'm blessed there's people like me on this earth who care for store owners, working people! Safety!"

"In one nation with liberty and justice for all! Lives matter, so stop turning death into stealing , criminal distractions and start caring for your life & others who wrongfully die each day!" she said. "Be a hero not about petty crime, not about cyber crime, not about hurting innocent people! STOP IT NOW ! I pray one day our children never have to deal with this!"

During the video, Farrah shouts, among other things, "Get out of CVS, you criminal!" 

The looting comes amid coast-to-coast demonstrations following the death of George Floyd, who was killed while being restrained by Minneapolis police. A video showed a white police officer kneeling on George's neck while two others also held him down (another officer stood by and watched).

The killing has sparked unrest throughout the country with protesters demanding police reform. 

It's complicated

Justin Hartley's new girlfriend was reportedly 'close friends' with his ex

While many are just discovering who Sofia Pernas is after pictures of her kissing Justin Hartley surfaced last week, the actor has long known about her — she's supposedly good friends with his soon-to-be ex-wife.

A source tells The Sun that Sofia and Chrishell Stause, who married Justin in 2017 after three years of dating, were "close friends for years" after meeting on the set of "The Young and the Restless" in 2016.


In fact, The Sun notes that the women often communicated on social media, "liking" and commenting on each other's pictures. The last correspondence took place in February when Chrishell liked a photo of Sofia working out in Thailand with a sword. 

Justin even appeared on Sofia's Instagram page in 2016.

Over the past week, multiple outlets have quoted sources stating that the "This Is Us" star and Sofia are dating, confirmation which comes after they were seen kissing on May 29 while she dropped him off outside the Southern California Orthopedic Institute.

Justin and Chrishell's divorce was rather shocking, as the duo seemed happy and had been seen together at a Golden Globes party just one week prior. Just one day before the filing, Chrishell, who stars on the Netflix show "Selling Sunset," was wearing her ring.

In his Nov. 22 filing, Justin listed their separation date as July 8, 2019. In Chrishell's official response, she listed their separation date as Nov. 22, essentially saying they split the moment he filed, not months before as he indicated.

It's believed that the separation date squabble has to do with money. In December 2019, TMZ wrote, "the tea leaves point to some sort of [financial] deal Justin may have and [Chrishell] believes he just doesn't want her to get a piece."

During a scene on "Selling Sunset" last month, Chrishell indicated that she was blindsided by the divorce filing.

Past behavior

Lea Michele's old 'Glee' castmates call out her on-set behavior in response to Black Lives Matter tweet

On June 1, Lea Michele took to Twitter to join the ranks of dozens of stars sharing their outrage over George Floyd's treatment and death at the hands of Minneapolis police officers on May 25. But her words struck a false chord for several of her old "Glee" co-stars.

"George Floyd did not deserve this. This was not an isolated incident and it must end. #BlackLivesMatter," tweeted Lea, who played Rachel Berry on "Glee" for all six seasons and earned Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for her performance.

Actress Samantha Marie Ware, who appeared on 11 episodes during season 6 of the hit FOX show and has since been on "What/If," "NCIS: New Orleans" and "Margot vs. Lily," replied with a tweet of her own that took issue with Lea weighing in on how people treat each other.

"Community" star Yvette Nicole Brown responded to Sammie's tweet, "I felt every one of those capital letters." After seeing that comment, "Glee" actor Alex Newell — who first appeared on the show during season 4 and more recently appeared on "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist" — added "Felt like claps!!" then posted some GIFs supporting Sammie as well as the message, "I'm gonna say this one time… when my friends goes through something traumatic I also go through it… that's what friendship is… and if you can't understand that then you're part of the problem… and that's on PERIODT! And I mean that for both sides of this coin!"

Longtime "Glee" star Amber Riley, who played Mercedes Jones, also waded in, though she stuck to GIFs, posting one of herself raising her hand as if she had something to add to the conversation, followed by another of herself sipping some tea. The implication was clear.

Actor-musician Dabier, who appeared on an episode of "Glee" in 2014, called Lea out by name in another all-caps tweet. "GIRL YOU WOULDNT LET ME SIT AT THE TABLE WITH THE OTHER CAST MEMBERS CAUSE 'I DIDNT BELONG THERE' F— YOU LEA," he wrote.

They're not the first "Glee" stars to weigh in on Lea's alleged on-set behavior. In her 2016 memoir "Sorry Not Sorry," actress Naya Rivera — who played cheerleader Santana Lopez on the show — opened up about their roller coaster working relationship.   

"One of the Glee writers once said that Lea and I were like two sides of the same battery and that about sums us up. We are both strong willed and competitive — not just with each other but with everyone — and that's not a good mixture," Naya wrote, as reported by E! News. "As the show progressed, though, that friendship started to break down, especially as Santana moved from a background character to one with bigger plot lines and more screen time. I think Rachel — erm, I mean Lea — didn't like sharing the spotlight."

Naya continued, "On top of that, she had a hard time separating work from our outside friendship, whereas it was a lot easier for me. I'm not offended when people offer feedback or criticism, and if things get heated on set, I try to keep perspective. We're all stressed, yes, but we're all working toward the same goal, so laugh it off and keep it movin'. Lea was a lot more sensitive, though, and it seemed like she blamed me for anything and everything that went wrong."

According to Naya, "If I'd complained about anyone or anything, she'd assumed I was b—-ing about her. Soon, she started to ignore me, and eventually it got to the point where she didn't say a word to me for all of season 6. Lea and I definitely weren't the best of friends, and I doubt we'll ever sit on her couch and eat kale together again, but the rumors of our 'feud' were blown out of proportion."

launch time

Kim Zolciak blasted for launching swimsuit line amid protests

Kim Zolciak-Biermann had always planned to launch her new swimsuit line on June 1, and nothing — not even a nation in unrest — could stop her.

Naturally, social media users dragged her for it.

Midday on June 1, the "Don't Be Tardy" star posted an Instagram video of two young women modeling her new Salty K swimsuits. In her accompanying caption, the reality TV star fawned over the look and the fabric of the swimsuits. 

"So many swimsuits will be coming your way this summer!!" she wrote, her excitement easily conveyed.

Many of her 3.1 million Instagram followers were not as joyous, calling the launch "tone deaf" while citing the coast-to-coast protests following the death of George Floyd

"Love you but maybe postpone the launch… look around," one person said. "Right now is not best time to self promote."

Another shouted that it's "not the time."

"Are you kidding me? Read the room, Kim," one critic said.

While some of the online haters blasted her for the youthful appearances of her swimsuit models, most of the critical comments were tied to the nation's unrest.

"Who is in charge of your brand marketing? They should be fired bc NOW IS NOT THE TIME. Tone deaf," one person decried.  

Although Kim made no mention of the protests in the swimsuit posts, she did side with the Black Lives Matter movement in her Instagram Stories earlier in the day, saying all her companies "stand in solidarity with the black community against systemic racism and oppression experienced everyday in America."

She added, "If you don't believe that #blacklivesmatter we ask you to please take your business elsewhere."

Fans worry Armie Hammer is having a 'breakdown' after bizarre social media activity

Armie Hammer's social media fun has some of his fans worried.

Over the weekend, the "Call Me By Your Name" star posted a shirtless video in which he can be seen chugging a beer during a round of golf. Armie — sporting a shaved head — then hits the ball before militantly walking out of frame. He kept silent throughout the video — aside from a belch.

"When the world is ending but you already have come to terms with the fact that this current time is ruled by chaos…" he captioned the clip.

While many of his 1.4 million Instagram followers chuckled at the video, others questioned his mental health.

"Is this a breakdown armie?" one fan asked. Others asked if he was okay.

"I am seriously worried about you armie," another person commented.

The actor has been self-isolating in the Caribbean with his family for several months now — which wasn't planned. 

"We're currently quarantined in Grand Cayman, which wasn't planned when we left LA 5 weeks ago for nyc for previews of @minutesbway," Armie's wife, Elizabeth Chambers, said on social media on April 16. "Due to travel restrictions, school closures and the fact that we were planning to be here with our extended family two weeks later for spring break, we made this decision for the health and safety of our family."

One day before Elizabeth's message, Armie showed off his new punk-rock haircut on Instagram. "Killing the game," he captioned a mirror selfie showing off his hairstyle. Before debuting the haircut, Armie also posted a picture of his hair on the floor while holding trimmers. "I'm fine," he said.

Fans also felt concerned after a recent post on his Instagram Story: Armie shared a photo of his breakfast, which consisted of beer and mac and cheese balls. 

"Day 1384 of the 'Tine: Cracked a beer, put on a Kaftan and fried up some Mac n cheese balls at 9:30 in the morning," he captioned the photo, adding, "What are you gonna do about it?"


Rapper planning to sue U.S. Marshal over leaked arrest pic

Rapper Kodak Black is planning to file a lawsuit against the United States Marshals Service for allegedly leaking a photo of him under arrest inside the Miami Dade Police Department last year.

In May 2019, the rapper was arrested at the Rolling Loud music festival after allegedly trying to buy firearms twice with falsified gun applications. A local police officer snapped a photo of a handcuffed Kodak after he was taken into custody. The picture was then sent to a U.S. Marshal.

According to TMZ, Kodak's attorney initially assumed a Miami police officer leaked the image to the media. However, an internal investigation determined that it was likely a Marshal who disseminated the picture.

According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, the Miami officer who was with the rapper all day says U.S. Marshal Chief called and instructed him to snap a photo of Kodak while he was cuffed. The officer did as told and sent the picture to the high-ranking official.

Kodak's attorney said the image served no law enforcement purpose. The attorney adds that the photo was released without Kodak's permission and for personal gain.

Change plea

Lori Loughlin's daughter: 'Use white privilege' to stop racism

Lori Loughlin's daughter is decrying all forms of racism while acknowledging that she's never really faced it as she was "born into privilege."

While protests following the death of George Floyd raged throughout the country, Olivia Jade made an impassioned plea for change on Instagram on Sunday, even claiming that "white privilege" can actually be used for good.

"Need to understand that just 'not being racist is not enough' if you hear people saying disrespectful things, correct them," the 20-year-old beauty wrote. 

Olivia told her 1.3 million followers to act when hearing racial epithets or jokes being made.

"Don't sit there & allow this to continue happening. And if someone says something like 'no one is around that [takes] offense' or 'it's a joke' it should offend ALL of us … speak because it's outright wrong and disgusting that humans talk/treat … other humans THE way we've seen," she argued. "Explain how it's not funny at all. … how actually ignorant it sounds. How uneducated you sound when u are undermining [what] black people have had to deal with for generations. Speak up!!!"

Olivia demanded that change happen now and "forever," adding that she was somewhat uneducated on the racist divisions that still occur in America.

"As a person who is born into privilege based on my skin color & financial situation I was not always aware that these issues were still so present. And that makes me feel awful. But that also fuels me," she said. "I'm not racist and I never have been but I need to speak up about this because just not being racist isn't enough. It out rages me. It makes me feel sick. It brings me to tears. THERE SHOULD NOT BE SUCH A GAP BETWEEN PEOPLE LIKE THIS."

She added, "We need to support and stand up and speak and USE OUR WHITE PRIVILEGE TO STOP THIS. We need to stop complaining about the smallest things because the black community are fearful of dying and being oppressed every single day just on the way they look and how they were born. Time to step up and keep making noise because this cannot continue to happen. It's disgusting."


Olivia found herself in the headlines over the past year due to her parents' involvement in the college admissions scandal, to which they've pleaded guilty. Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli are accused of paying a $500,000 bribe to get Olivia and her sister Bella into the University of Southern California as crew team recruits despite neither girl participating in the sport. At the time, many pundits argued that it was an example of blatant white privilege.

Lori and Mossimo will be formally sentenced this summer.
