The internet broke over the weekend when it emerged that Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra is having trouble in her marriage to Hollywood artist Nick Jonas ‘117 days after they tied the knot’. The actress is nearly 10 years older to him. Yet, love blossomed and last year, they had a dream-like marriage. Both talked to the media about what drew them to the other and it made this jodi even more endearing and lovely. It was a significant union for it proved that age and culture is no bar when the love is truly there.
But the article published by ‘OK!’ Magazine has broken the hearts of their fans. The scathing story states how both of them have been fighting over everything. Moreover, it goes on to say that Nick was stunned to see Priyanka’s controlling side. The family of Nick is in fact ‘begging him’ to end the marriage as Priyanka, who was once ‘ready to settle down and have kids’ is according to them a ‘party girl who acts like she’s 21’. Finally, it claims the lovers rushed into the marriage and didn’t have time even for a pre-nup.
A section of Indian media believed the story and even published it on their portals. Some netizens also believed it but a majority of them raised some valid questions. Firstly, there was no hint of trouble-in-paradise before the ‘OK!’ story suddenly dropped. Usually, one gets a hint if a celebrated couple is about to split but in this case, there was not even a murmur. This was compounded by the fact that there have been Instagram posts that show them enjoying in each other’s company. Just last week, Nick Jonas shared a picture of them vacationing in Miami. Few days later, Priyanka uploaded a picture where she can be seen kissing him. Just last Wednesday, Nick Jonas promoted Priyanka Chopra’s YouTube series and wrote some lovely things about her in the caption.
Another indication that the article might be false and malicious is the controversial history of the ‘OK!’ magazine. This isn’t the first time that they have spread such reports. Earlier, they reported that Hollywood actress Mila Kunis is ending her marriage with Hollywood actor Ashton Kutcher in just 110 days. It has been more than a year since this rumour article went live and the couple are going strong. They later also had the audacity to claim that Mila gave them an exclusive interview to them. It was found that the quotes were lifted from various interviews of the Friends With Benefits actress.
In case of Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin, the magazine cooked up a story that they are headed for a split within 139 days of their wedding. The story was published recently and just like Priyanka-Nick article, it went viral and led to a lot of speculations. Needless to say, all is well in their marriage and recently they were seen having a dinner date in their new mansion at Beverly Hills.
Similar stories were also put out by ‘OK!’ regarding the divorce of actors Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel and that of footballer David Beckham and fashion designer Victoria Beckham. And yes, they are still married. And this is not all. A quick search on the internet will throw up many more lies spread by ‘OK!’.
Due to all these factors, it makes us totally cynical about the said report. Here’s wishing all is well in the marriage of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas and that they sue the said magazine if their claims turn out to be false.
