MALIBU, Calif. – Raising the bar on quasi-amicable, conscious un-coupling style break ups; birthday boy, model, and reality TV personality Brody Jenner received a thoughtful gift from his former wife Kaitlynn Carter and her recent ladylove interest Miley Cyrus (who recently separated from super-hunky, soon-to-be ex-husband, actor and “Hunger Games” star Liam Hemsworth).
Jenner’s birthday is August 21, so the pan-amorous pair sent Jenner a big bouquet of cannabis from California producer Lowell Herb Company.
According to several celebrity media outlets, Jenner posted a video in an Instagram Story thanking Carter and Cyrus for the gift, and said, “Miley and Kaitlynn, you guys really stepped it up on this one. You know my favorite company of all time. We got the birthday card, attached to the weed bouquet. Look at this!”
On Lowell Herb Co. stationary, M + K penned a humorous greeting that read, “Brody, WEED like to wish you a happy birthday! Love you! Miley + Kaitlynn.”
“I have never seen one of these in my entire life. Oh my god. It’s the kush, too. Happy birthday to me,” Jenner reportedly commented in the video post as he displayed the message and buds from his ex-wife and Cyrus.
Jenner, star of MTV’s The Hills and FOX’s The Prince of Malibu, and Carter, a fashion blogger and Jenner’s co-star in the upcoming series The Hills: New Beginnings, announced their separation on August 2, after a months-long marriage and several years of dating.
Cyrus, the former Disney star, singer, and boundary-pushing daughter (who identifies as queer) of musician Billy Ray Cyrus, recently separated from Hemsworth after seven months of marriage. Media reports said that Hemsworth filed for divorce on August 21, in Los Angeles.
As tabloid outlets put the Cyrus-Hemsworth divorce on blast this week, Cyrus took to Twitter yesterday to deny accusations of infidelity that had been raised. In her Twitter thread, Cyrus said she lost a business deal with Walmart as a teen, for “ripping a bong.”
She also commented that, “You can say I am a twerking, pot smoking, foul mouthed hillbilly but I am not a liar.”
In a related Hollywood story: Lowell Herb Co. has announced the first cannabis lounge and restaurant in West Hollywood, California, slated to open this fall. Called Lowell Café, the venue will feature a full menu of cannabis-infused food and drink, as well as smoking and vaping on premises. The first of its kind destination will not serve alcohol.
Lowell Café will be the first of several cannabis consumption lounges to open that have been approved by the city of West Hollywood, which is already the site of several world-renowned nightspots and clubs.
It seems entirely possible that the new cannabis lounge will become Hollywood’s latest hangout for celebrities, paparazzi, and global influencers, like Cyrus, who has never been shy about cannabis and has 98 million followers on Instagram.
