Meghan Markle Apparently Ended Her First Marriage Via USPS (The Sun)
Some juicy tidbits have been revealed about Meghan Markle’s first trip down the aisle — including how she broke it off with her first hubby. Markle tied the knot with film producer Trevor Engelson in September 2011 after six years of dating. Their wedding was a four-day affair in Jamaica, though the ceremony in front of 100 guests was over “very quickly, in about 15 minutes.” They began a sort of long-distance marriage as Meghan landed her role on Suits just a few months before the couple wed and the show films in Toronto. “Despite being together for six years before getting hitched, things started to fall apart not long after the wedding,” a source tells The Sun. “Trevor was based in LA while Meghan was in Toronto, a five-hour flight away. It was a very difficult way to start married life.” According to new details leaked from Royal biographer Andrew Morton’s new book, Markle ended their marriage “out of the blue,” by sending her wedding band and engagement ring back to Engelson via snail mail in 2013.

New Details On Gwen Stefani’s Beauty Venture Emerge (The Cut)
As previously reported by DFR, Gwen Stefani is entering the world of beauty. The singer took a break from The Voice last year and it seems she’s found a new project to fill her time: a full-blown beauty empire. While it was previously thought that Stefani was merely interested in developing a line of cosmetics, judging from new details that’ve leaked from the US Patent and Trademark Office, Stefani’s vision is big. Not only did she trademark the P8NT moniker but also P8NT Beauty, P8NT Cosmetics, and P8NT by Gwen Stefani — likely to cover all her bases. She also registered at least 50 product categories to her trademark. All cosmetics categories (lipstick, mascara, eyebrow gel, concealer) are covered but she’s also included anti-wrinkle cream, shaving cream and serums. Get it Gwen!
