CHRIS PRATT, ANNA FARIS: Separate


Last night, Chris Pratt and Anna Faris revealed their marriage is over.

His Facebook page said (quote) "Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another.”

CAITLYN JENNER: Apologizes for Wearing Trump Cap


Caitlyn Jenner has apologized to “all of the trans community” for wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.
