Whitney Cummings, Peter Berg Split After a Year of Dating
Whitney Cummings and Peter Berg are newly single. The couple of over a year have called it quits, sources confirm to Us Weekly.
The 31-year-old comedienne and former Whitney star recently opened up about the breakup during a stand-up performance. "She announced it," an eyewitness tells Us. "It kind of sounded like a bad breakup –- she talked about hating guys." The pair split over two weeks ago, another source adds.
Back in July, Cummings and the Battleship director, 51, were photographed cozying up outside of the Bowery Hotel in NYC'S East Village neighborhood.
Cummings created and starred in the now-canceled NBC series Whitney and is the co-creator of the CBS comedy 2 Broke Girls. She's currently doing stand-up on tour and is often a guest on friend Chelsea Handler's E! show, Chelsea Lately. (Her own E! talk show -- Love You, Mean It With Whitney Cummings -- made a quiet exit in February after one season.)
Berg is most known for producing the critically acclaimed film and TV series Friday Night Lights. He recently wrapped shooting the HBO pilot of Damon Lindelof's The Leftovers, which stars Justin Theroux.
