The Friday Post.
If your boyfriend has an attitude today it’s because today was supposed to be the Dune 2 release date so he’s dune too much. This is The Friday Post, Hung Up’s round-up of celebrity mess and miscellanea.
Swirltok — that part of TikTok where being in an interracial relationship is the most interesting and lucrative thing to ever happen — has issued its official reply to Killers of the Flower Moon, the movie in which Martin Scorsese emphasizes that it very much is not. By this I mean: Zoë Kravitz and Channing Tatum are engaged.
Kravitz and Tatum have been together since 2021; he will star in her forthcoming directorial debut, Pussy Island. People broke the engagement news after Kravitz wore her engagement ring (with their Rosemary’s Baby Halloween costumes) to a Halloween party.
I like this couple! He follows her stan accounts and gushes about her in interviews. She is tighter-lipped about their romance (when I interviewed her for WSJ mag, she didn’t say much) but they gamely pap walk around Williamsburg. I wish them a fabulous, glamorous wedding and not another twee little Audrey Hepburn wedding dress.
Casey Bloys Should Ghostwrite for Drake
A former HBO assistant is suing some executives, and part of the lawsuit outlines the “very petty” corporate culture.
