Priyanka Chopra does not have time to let unfounded remarks affect her.
The actress, who on December 1 got married to American singer Nick Jones, was recently called a “global scam artist” in an article published on The Cut.
Reacting to the piece, Chopra told the Hindustan Times: “I don’t even want to react or comment. It’s not even in my stratosphere. I’m in a happy place at this moment. This kind of random things can’t disturb it.”
According to The Cut article, Nick was only looking for a “fling” with Hollywood’s latest “It woman” and that marriage was the last thing on his mind when he got together with Priyanka.
“All Nick wanted was a possible fling with Hollywood’s latest It Woman, but instead he wound up staring straight at a life sentence with a global scam artist.”
In the article titled “Is Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s Love for Real?,” writer and comedian Mariah Smith also accused Priyanka of using Nick for her own gain.
The article was severely criticised, with Nick’s brother Joe Jonas and his fiancee, Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner, taking to Twitter to lash out at the publication.
“This is disgusting. @TheCut should be ashamed to have someone write such evil words. What Nick and Pri have is Beautiful Love. Thank u, Net.”
Turner tweeted: “This is wildly inappropriate and totally disgusting. Very disappointed that The Cut would give anyone a platform to spew such bullshit.”
A note on The Cut read: “Last night, The Cut published a post about Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s relationship that shouldn’t have gone up. We’ve received dozens of messages from readers expressing their anger. We want you to know that we hear you and we’re sorry. The whole piece missed the mark. There is no good explanation for this other than human error and poor judgement. This was a mistake, and we apologize to our readers and to Priyanka and Nick.”
