Last June, it was reported that Charlize Theron, alleged human, broke up with Sean Penn, garbage human, by “ghosting” him. For those of you unfamiliar with the concept, to ghost someone is to break up with them by simply disappearing. No sit-downs, no phone calls, no Post-its—just...nothing. And the thought of Theron doing that to Penn, specifically, made her seem really fucking cool.
But the story, like so much celebrity gossip, was too good to be true. In an interview with WSJ Magazine, Theron said:
“There is a need to sensationalize things. When you leave a relationship there has to be some fucking crazy story or some crazy drama. And the fucking ghosting thing, like literally, I still don’t even know what it is. It’s just its own beast...We were in a relationship and then it didn’t work anymore. And we both decided to separate. That’s it.”
Elton John’s former security guard, Jeffrey Wenninger, is suing the singer for “sexual harassment, sexual battery, and battery.” Wenninger claims the harassment was “ongoing” throughout the 12 years he worked for the singer. Reports Mashable:
The lawsuit details three incidents of alleged harassment, all from 2014. In one, Wenninger alleges that the singer engaged in “unwelcome and offensive touching and groping” while in a car in Los Angeles.
While doing so, Elton John said things like “Get your todger out” and “Say hello to Uncle Elton,” the lawsuit alleges.
Wenninger claims John’s actions were “willful, wanton, malicious and oppressive,” and that he was “was placed in fear for his physical well-being, and suffered and continues to suffer extreme pain and mental anguish to his mind and body.”
Wentworth Miller wrote a lengthy Facebook post about his battle with depression, and how it felt to be a meme.
From Miller’s post:
Today I found myself the subject of an Internet meme. Not for the first time.
This one, however, stands out from the rest.
In 2010, semi-retired from acting, I was keeping a low-profile for a number of reasons.
First and foremost, I was suicidal.
The first time I saw this meme pop up in my social media feed, I have to admit, it hurt to breathe. But as with everything in life, I get to assign meaning. And the meaning I assign to this/my image is Strength. Healing. Forgiveness.
