Markle falls out with celeb BFF
2 March, 2019, 8:00 am
THE friendship between Priyanka Chopra and Meghan Markle has hit a rough patch, an insider says.
The two actresses were pals, and Priyanka was a guest at Meghan’s wedding
to Prince Harry in May. But the Duchess of Sussex declined to attend Priyanka’s wedding to Nick Jonas in December.
“Priyanka was crushed,” said one source.
That’s why, my sources say, the Bollywood star declined to attend Markle’s baby shower last week at the Mark Hotel.
Serena Williams and Amal Clooney co-hosted the shower, with attendees such as Gayle King.
It was reported that Chopra was “bogged down” in Los Angeles with meetings about a book she is writing, but sources believe the real reason is that Markle hurt her feelings by not coming to her wedding. (A source told Us Weekly that Markle didn’t attend Chopra’s wedding becauseof her pregnancy.)
“Their friendship is over unless Meghan apologises,” said one source. “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.”
A spokesperson for Chopra declined to comment, but a source close to the former Miss World said,
“There are no issues between the two women. They are friends, and anything you’re being told otherwise is inaccurate and untrue.”
Chopra and Jonas seemed much friendlier in July when they visited the royals at their Cotswolds country home.
