Last month, The Daily Beast posted a piece about the messiness going down behind the scenes of Euphoria, including creator Sam Levinson allegedly cutting the screen time of Barbie Ferriera, who plays Kat Hernandez, after the two had a fight about where her character was going. A week after Euphoria‘s season 2 finale aired, The Daily Beast did a follow-up article with more stories from crew members and background actors about how things behind-the-scenes of the show are messier than Jules’ bathroom wastebasket after she takes off all that fairy raver makeup at the end of the night. And those who have heard cast members Sydney Sweeney, Minka Kelly, and Chloe Cherry talk about how they had to push back against filming unnecessary nude scenes are probably bracing themselves for sexual harassment allegations. But these allegations are from anonymous crew members and background actors who say that they’re expected to work long ass hours with not enough breaks and that production is very disorganized since Sam Levinson likes to shoot “off the cuff.” But of course, HBO is defending their second most-watched show of all time because DUH!
On HBO’s Euphoria (aka the show that D.A.R.E. hates), it’s not exactly a shock to see someone’s nipples or wiener. But there have been some actresses on the show who decided the nudity wasn’t necessary to the scene or their character’s development, and they chose to keep their clothes on. Like Minka Kelly, who was blindsided on her first day at work with a production note to get naked.
We’ve got another celebrity pandemic romance casualty. Except in this case, it was a relationship that was never technically confirmed, barely seen in public, and is ending as quietly as it began. Not once did we get a pandemic Instagram selfie with the caption, “Sorry, but I definitely can’t stay six feet away from this one!“. And we never will, because sources are saying that Trevor Noah and Minka Kelly are no longer together, and they broke up after Trevor bought a huge multi-million dollar mansion for the two of them to live in.
Two significant events occurred in April of 2017. Kendall Jenner ended police brutality and unified the nation by handing an officer a Pepsi Cola, and Jesse Williams and his wife, Aryn Drake-Lee, filed for divorce. Jesse and Aryn spent the intervening years locked in a messy court battle trying to hash out a spousal and child support agreement and airing all their dirty laundry in public whereas, at that same time, America has become a nation free from division and oppression. Well according to TMZ, Jesse and Aryn finally achieved what could have been done years ago by just handing each other a can of pop. At long last, their divorce has been finalized.
Before today, if you had asked me to speculate about Trevor Noah’s personal life, I might stupidly guess that he was hooking up with CNN’s email server because Trevor knows anything and everything there is to know about the news, and especially politics. But People magazine says that he’s with Minka Kelly and things are “very serious.”
It was revealed recently that drama magnet Jesse Williams got in some trouble for introducing his two children to his current lady, a mysterious “Mama C.” The last time we checked, Jesse was doing Minka Kelly, a person with a name void of any Cs (we later learned that Mama C was Jesse’s “longtime friend,” visual artist Ciarra Pardo). Which begged the question: What happened to Minka?
Minka no longer has to defend herself against those homewrecking rumors to strangers on the internet. Multiple sources tell UsWeekly and People that Minka and Jesse are officially done after more than half a year (or over a year, depending on which hookup timeline you subscribe to).
Neither Minka nor Jesse have said anything about splitting, but it’s kind doubtful they ever will, considering how secretive they were with their relationship in the first place. Only Minka and Jesse knows how their relationship ended. Like if Jesse decided it was over after finding a cuter girl at work, or if Minka’s last words to Jesse were that her parting giftbasket from Derek Jeter was better.
Hopefully none of the scrubbier dudes from Minka’s past try to take advantage of the situation by slithering back into her life and passing themselves off as better by comparison. “Minkaaaaaa…it’s me, Wilmer Valderrama. I’m pretty awful, but on the upside, I don’t have a wife and kids to complicate things. Pick you up at 10?”
