Chipotle Mexican Grill on Monday denied allegations by actor Jeremy Jordan that eating at one of its restaurants landed him in the hospital.

Jordan, who plays Winn Schott on TV show “Supergirl,” posted an Instagram video on Thursday of himself on a hospital bed, saying that food he ate at a Chipotle made him severely sick and that he “almost died,” according to a People.com report.

“There have been no other reported claims of illness at the restaurant where (Jordan) dined. We take all claims seriously, but we can’t confirm any link to Chipotle, given the details he shared with us,” Chipotle spokesman Chris Arnold said via email.

Jordan’s allegations come as Chipotle is still recovering from a bruising string of food safety lapses that started in late 2015, including a recent norovirus outbreak at a Virginia restaurant.

The Denver-based burrito chain’s stock has fallen about 60 percent since an E. coli outbreak in 2015.

Shares of Chipotle fell as much as 6 percent to a near five-year low of $263.11 on Monday morning, but recouped most losses by afternoon. The stock was last down 0.4 percent.

Cardi B has her finger on the pulse of her success. Fresh off her debut album drop, a Saturday Night Live pregnancy reveal, a special co-hosting gig on The Tonight Show and a Coachella performance that was straight fire, the 25-year-old is finding new ways to outdo herself. This time, she shattered two of Beyonce’s Guinness World Records. Truth.

The Invasion of Privacy rapper now holds the titles for most simultaneous Billboard Hot 100 entries by a female and the most simultaneous Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Top 10 entries by a female. (Get it, Cardi B!)

Queen Bey previously held the title with 12 tracks all charting at the same time following the release of Lemonade in 2016. Cardi B now has 13. Eeeeooowwww!

So, Nicki Minaj, what’s good?

On another note, Cardi B’s rise is bustling beyond Friday night playlists, too. Even Bernie Sanders is a fan. Cardi recently weight in on Social Security during an interview with GQ, telling the mag she felt President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was “the real ‘Make America Great Again,’ because if it wasn’t for him, old people wouldn’t even get Social Security.”

Sanders tweeted about it.

So again, Nicki, what’s good?

Avicii Is Dead at 28, Here’s What We Know

Published

Swedish artist, DJ and producer Avicii, real name Tim Bergling, died April 20 according to a statement from his rep. He was 28.

“It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii,” the statement reads. “He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th.  The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.”

Avicii retired from live performing in 2016, citing health reasons. He had suffered from health problems for several years, including acute pancreatitis, in part due to excessive drinking. He had his gallbladder and appendix removed in 2014.

Last year, Avicii posted the following message to his website:

“WE ALL REACH A POINT IN OUR LIVES AND CAREERS WHERE WE UNDERSTAND WHAT MATTERS THE MOST TO US.
For me it’s creating music. That is what I live for, what I feel I was born to do.

Last year I quit performing live, and many of you thought that was it. But the end of live never meant the end of Avicii or my music. Instead, I went back to the place where it all made sense – the studio.

The next stage will be all about my love of making music to you guys. It is the beginning of something new.

Hope you´ll enjoy it as much as I do.”

Gone too soon, his music will live on for generations. Here’s one of Better than the Weekend’s favorite Avicii hits from back in the day, blasting all day in honor of his contribution to music.
