She Cut Her

You know what they say about a woman who cuts off all her hair? She’s either going thru a break up or a break down. Remember Britney Spears infamously shaved her head in 2007 when she reportedly was going through a mental breakdown. In 2017 Katy Perry chopped her locks into a blonde pixie cut after her breakup with current fiance Orlando Bloom. Jurnee who was known for her signature long curly locks debuted a new short do in January.

She’s Been Mum About Her Personal Life

We caught up with Jurnee in February while she was promoting her new film Birds Of Prey : And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn.” Journalist were told not to ask her any personal questions. We thought it was because of her brother Jussie Smollett’s legal woes, but could it have been because she and her husband had already split and a divorce announcement was coming?

She did however play along when we asked the cast to tell us their favorite break-up song.
