Ever since Meghan Markle declined an invitation to Priyanka Chopra’s wedding, rumors have been spreading that the two celebrity besties and newlyweds are feuding. But the actress is ready to put those rumors to rest.
On a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live, Chopra responded to the rumor that she was “crushed,” per Page Six, about Markle being a no-show. And reports claimed Chopra didn’t show up to the Duchess of Sussex’s New York baby shower due to the ongoing feud.
For those not in the know, Chopra married Nick Jonas on December 1, about six weeks after Markle had announced her pregnancy. At that time, a source said the duchess was taking time to "adjust to motherhood" before heading back onto the tour circuit and international traveling, and that was her reason for skipping the wedding.
Despite that very acceptable reason for not attending what was arguably one of the biggest weddings of 2018, after just having your own chart-topping big day, the rumors continued—especially since Markle continued to travel heavily into her second and third trimester.
“Their friendship is over unless Meghan apologizes,”another source told Page Six. “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.”
So when Chopra didn’t attend the duchess's baby shower because she was reportedly “bogged down” in Los Angeles with meetings about her upcoming memoir, everyone assumed the actress’s “no” RSVP was to get back at Markle for not going to her wedding.
However, Chopra is not having any of this rumor.
"Oh my God,” Chopra said with a laugh to host Andy Cohen. “No, it's not true."
There you have it! Chopra didn't give any further explanation as to why she actually missed the shower—which was hosted by Serena Williams and attended by plenty of celebs including Amal Clooney and Gayle King—and she didn't address her current friendship status with Markle. While everything seems fine, we'll see if Chopra sends her well wishes to the duchess when her baby arrives to see if we can actually squash these rumors.
