Priyanka Chopra is setting the record straight.
There have been rumors that Priy and Meghan Markle, who happen to be close friends, are now on the outs – because Meghan missed Priy’s wedding to Nick Jonas last December.
To give a little back story, the rumor began when a source claimed that Priyanka was upset the Duchess of Sussex did not attend her wedding.
“Their friendship is over unless Meghan apologizes,” the source told Page Six last month. “Priyanka is a huge international star with a tremendous social media following. She is probably more famous worldwide than Meghan is. She feels Meghan didn’t respect her, and didn’t respect their friendship.”
Meghan, who is pregnant with her first child with Prince Harry, recently had a baby shower in New York. The event was attended by the likes of Amal Clooney, Serena Williams, Gayle King and Abigail Spencer – but Priy allegedly did not attend Meghan’s baby shower because she was upset with Meghan for missing her wedding.
During a guest appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, the Quantico star set the record straight – none of it is true!
When a viewer called to ask whether there’s any truth to the rumor going around, Andy also chimed in to explain, “They said that you didn’t go to her baby shower because you were pissed at her.”
At that, Priyanka laughed at the absurdity of the rumor, replying, “Oh my god. No, it’s not true.”
Earlier this week, E! News got a report on the current status of Priy and Meghan’s friendship.
“All the rumors that Priyanka and Meghan aren’t friends anymore are totally not true,” a source told the outlet. “Priyanka and Meghan are still very close friends and they talk frequently. Meghan confides in Priyanka about the adjustments she has to make with being a royal.”
“Just because Priyanka didn’t go to the shower [Meghan’s New York City baby shower], or that Meghan couldn’t come to her wedding(s) [Priyanka’s multi-day wedding in India], doesn’t mean anything about their friendship,” the source adds. “They’re still very close friends and Meghan considers Priyanka one of her closest confidants.”
Also, Priy, who did go to Meghan’s and Prince Harry’s wedding, was reportedly not in attendance at the shower because she was working in Los Angeles at the time, according to ET.
