In a time when celebrity custody battles are long and bitter, we have just one question following the news of Scarlett Johansson’s divorce from her French husband of two years, Romain Dauriac: Who will get custody of the gourmet popcorn shop?
Johansson and Dauriac opened Yummy Pop, their fancy popcorn store, in Paris late last year. They sell bags of both sweet and savory snacks with flavors like maple, chocolate-strawberry, olive oil and Parmesan — basically, this is the mecca of the world’s most underrated snack.
Considering that a source told People magazine that Johansson and Dauriac split up last summer, and Yummy Pop didn’t open until October, it seems like they might be keeping their mid-divorce shit together enough to keep the business going so far. Even though they had reportedly been separated for months already, the last time they were photographed together was at Yummy Pop’s grand opening.
Then again, Johansson was still wearing her wedding ring when she was seen at an event just last month. The first time she was seen without it was at last weekend’s Women’s March. It’s entirely possible that the source doesn’t know anything and the split actually happened more recently, and if so, what’s going to happen to Yummy Pop?!
Then there’s the worst-case scenario: The strain of running an extremely popular, genius popcorn store together is actually what caused Johansson and her hubby to call it quits on their marriage. In that case, things don’t bode well for Yummy Pop’s future. Insert all the crying emojis here.
