The Drake & Josh wedding drama continues! Over a month after Josh Peck got married in Malibu, California, Drake Bell, is still talking about not being invited to his former co-star's wedding. But this time, Bell's finally taking a different, more mature, stance on the wedding guest snafu of the year.
ICYMI, Josh Peck didn't invite his former Drake and Josh co-star/brother Drake Bell to his wedding, and Drake lashed out in a series of tweets about how hurt he was over the snub. According to Josh, it was a very small event and the two haven't spoken in years, but nevertheless the whole thing created a feud heard 'round the internet. In the days following, Bell responded to his guest list snub by getting seriously salty on Twitter, writing in a since-deleted tweet "When you're not invited to the wedding the message is clear," according to Pop Buzz. In another now-deleted tweet, Bell wrote "I'll miss ya brotha," also posting a pic of himself and Peck during happier days. Peck hit back saying they haven't spoken in years, and that his former co-star never even congratulated him on his engagement.
Former Drake & Josh fans were brokenhearted to learn that the onscreen bros weren't that close IRL, and they ended up taking the drama to Cosgrove's Instagram. "Why did you steal Drake's invitation, Megan?" a fan commented on a recent photo of the actress, according to Teen Vogue. "WHAT DID YOU DO MEGAN," wrote another. "DRAKE WAS NOT AT JOSH'S WEDDING."
In the wake of the very, very public argument, users took to their social media accounts to say that the lost love between the two stars has "ruined their childhood," and have even gone so far as to call Josh "Judas" for backstabbing his ex-bff. At one point, Drake and Josh star Miranda Cosgrove received so many comments on her Instagram that she decided to make a statement about the situation, implying that she's remained friends with both of her former co-stars and doesn't' want to be involved. Even John Stamos, Peck's Grandfathered co-star who did score an invite to the wedding, got in on the drama with a snarky Instagram aimed at Bell. "I got invited to the wedding and I didn't even want to go. #Honeymoon" the Full House star posted to Instagram.
And now it's finally time to put all of this drama to rest. In an interview with ET this weekend, Bell finally admitted that he acted badly in the days following Peck's wedding.
"We've been together 18 years, Josh and me, me and Josh," Bell told ET. "We've been so close, it was just one of those things where you know, I'd been talking to him, and he's been telling me about the engagement. And then I saw on social media, the wedding, and I didn't hear about it. So, it was just one of those things where it was just like, 'You didn't even tell me?! I had to find out on social media?' And then you're like, 'You know what!? Fine!' and then I'm like, wait, I probably shouldn't have done that." Ugh, we've been there Drake! Finding out about a friend's wedding you didn't get invited to on Instagram is THE WORST. But we're glad to hear all that drama is behind Drake & Josh and they can finally get back to the real business at hand — a reunion!
