Cardi B has offered to officiate Kal Penn’s wedding after the actor tweeted that he had dreamt about her officiating it.

The rapper, who last month revealed that she had become an ordained marriage officiant, was unknowingly on the same flight as the actor.

Penn wrote on Twitter this month: “Cardi B was on my flight to LA. I fell asleep and had a dream that she officiated our wedding on the plane and the three of us walked out of LAX holding hands.”

Cardi B later saw his message and responded: “First, why didn’t you say hi! Second, I’m licensed to do that sooo……..let me know.”

Penn, who is known for his roles in the ‘Harold & Kumar’ film franchise among other film and TV productions, came out recently in his new memoir ‘You Can’t Be Serious’. He revealed that he is engaged to his partner of 11 years, Josh.

The actor, who was a White House staffer during the Obama administration 2009-2011, told People that ​​he was “really excited” to share his relationship with Josh with readers, “but Josh, my partner, my parents, and my brother – four people who I’m closest to in the family – are fairly quiet. They don’t love attention and shy away from the limelight.”

Cardi, meanwhile, last month presided over a wedding for a same-sex couple named Brandi and Shannon.

She documented the wedding, which actress Raven Symone attended, on her show ‘Cardi Tries’. “By the way WORLD I’m licensed to marry people ….sooo yea… I do it all and this was such a fulfilling thing to do and Raven was soo fun I was sooo starstruck,” she tweeted.

In other news, Cardi B has responded after ‘Tiger King’ star Joe Exotic wrote to her in an unlikely bid to get him out of jail.

It comes after Exotic previously asked Kim Kardashian and Donald Trump for their help, without success.

The Netflix star, real name Joseph Allen Maldonado-Passage, was convicted of attempted murder-for-hire in 2020 and received a 22-year prison sentence.

Exotic’s latest bizarre bid at freedom saw him scribble a note from his prison cell, which was tweeted to Cardi from his unverified account. He asked her to “rally everyone together.”

He wrote: “To, Cardi ‘B’ when you see the truth in Tiger King 2 I need you to rally everyone together to be my voice of freedom! Be my hero girl. Love, Joe Exotic.”

Now the musician has responded, and she seemed unsurprisingly confused by the exchange.

She retweeted the note from Exotic’s alleged account, and asked: “Wait, is this the real Tiger King?”

John Phillips, a man claiming to be Exotic’s lawyer, then replied: “I represent Joe. He heard about your message from prison. I’d love to put you two together on a phone call next week.”
