Trent Reznor, Houseplant Still Not on Speaking Terms

LOS ANGELES, CA—Although 52-year-old Trent Reznor’s family and a 7-year-old weeping fig have shared a home for over six years, the two rarely acknowledge each other’s existence. Occasionally, Reznor will silently provide his estranged housemate with water, suggesting a desire to mend fences. The fig, however, continues to snub the apparent olive branch with not so much as a thank you, possibly contributing to the infrequency with which Reznor does so. It’s not quite clear what initially caused the riff in their seven-year relationship. Some reports indicate that it may stem from the fact that the fig has been unemployed for at least the past 2 years and does not contribute anything to the household in the form of utility payments or chores. The fig did not immediately respond to a request for comment. At the time of this report, neither party had expressed the desire to part ways, though the fig has slowly started growing toward the window, possibly indicating a desire to cut ties and move on with its life.
