It’s been six months since Priyanka Chopra married Nick Jonas in one of the most beautiful weddings of the year. However, not everyone seems to be loving this new matrimony. Priyanka opens up about the hate they’ve received over their 10-year age difference in her new cover story for InStyle.
“People gave us a lot of s–t about that and still do,” she tells the magazine. “I find it really amazing when you flip it and the guy is older, no one cares and actually people like it.”
Unfortunately, this isn’t the only negativity the actress star and her husband have received. Just days after the couple said “I do,” a media outlet published an article titled “Is Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s Love for Real?” in which the author called Chopra a “global scam artist.” Her family members, including brother-in-law Joe Jonas and his wife Sophie Turner, immediately came to her defense and slammed the piece. “Nick, Joe, Sophie, my mom, his parents, everyone was there furiously typing on their phones,” she recalls. “They were so mad.”
The article was later updated, and the author issued an apology. Still, Chopra decided not to give the piece any more attention. “Commenting on some stupidity means it eventually becomes important because I gave it importance,” she says. “A lot of people don’t understand that way of thinking. It’s not a myopic thought … it’s a long-term plan.”
As if this weren’t enough to handle, Priyanka has also been criticized for sharing so much of her big day on social media. “If I wasn’t a famous person and I’d just got married, don’t you think my Insta would have photos of me and my husband?” she recently told The Sunday Times. “Just because I’m famous, don’t I have the ability to be proud of being a newlywed without people saying that I’m using my marriage? I gave up my right to privacy when I became a public person, it’s the deal you make with the devil. But trust me, there are lots of things I still keep personal.”
We have nothing but love for Priyanka and Nick and clearly neither of them pay attention to haters as they have shown us several times.
