Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas took the world by storm with their extravagant Indian wedding in 2018 and have been a Hollywood/Bollywood power couple ever since.
However, fans and the media have recently started to speculate that the celebrity couple’s marriage is on the rocks, and it’s all because of an Instagram move.
Chopra changed her social media handle from @PriyankaChopraJonas to @PriyankaChopra, prompting questions about whether she was preparing to update her marital status.
However, during a cover story for Vanity Fair’s February issue, the Miss World 2000 winner addressed the rumors and assured fans that she and Jonas are still definitely together.
“It’s a very vulnerable feeling, actually, that if I post a photo, whatever’s behind me in that photo is going to be zoomed in and people are going to speculate,” Chopra said.
Chopra changed her social media accounts in November 2021, setting off a chain reaction of speculation about the duo’s marital status.
However, on the same day, she also commented on one of Jonas’ Instagram posts, “Damn! I just died in your arms…” followed by a bunch of cute emojis.
Suffice to say people were confused.
During the Vanity Fair interview, Chopra opened up about the role of social media in her life and career. She also talked about celebrating Diwali and having a housewarming party at the home she shares with her husband in the San Fernando Valley in the same month as the handle change.
She even posted about the celebration on her Instagram, noting that it’s the first home they’ve shared together.
“Our first Diwali in our first home together. This one will always be special,” the caption read.
“To everyone who honored our home and my culture by not just dressing up but dancing the night away, you made me feel like I was home. And to the best husband and partner @nickjonas , you are what dreams are made of. I love you. My heart is so grateful and full.”
According to Vanity Fair, the couple bought the 20,000 square foot mansion for $20 million in late 2019, just before the pandemic hit, and it was there that they spent their first six months in isolation.
However, they were finally able to enjoy their home with a Diwali celebration with family and friends.
Hopefully there will be many more in the future!
