Actor Priyanka Chopra has finally addressed the rude comments she often gets online for the age difference between her and husband Nick Jonas. Talking to Elle magazine, Priyanka said people were brutal about it.
“People gave us a lot of sh*t about that and still do,” she said. “I find it really amazing when you flip it and the guy is older, no one cares and actually people like it,” she added. Priyanka is 36 years old while Nick is 26.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the only negativity the Quantico star and her husband have received. Just days after the couple tied the knot, a media outlet published an article titled “Is Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s Love for Real?” in which the author called Priyanka a “global scam artist.”
Many of her family members including her brother-in-law Joe Jonas and his wife Sophie Turner immediately came out in her support and slammed the article. “Nick, Joe, Sophie, my mom, his parents, everyone was there furiously typing on their phones. They were so mad,” she recalled.
The piece was later updated and later removed and the editor also issued an apology. However, Priyanka decided to not pay any heed to the article or its author.
