In the wake of split rumours, Priyanka Chopra explains why she removed the word «Jonas» from her social media handles.
Due to the public interest in her marriage to Nick Jonas, Priyanka Chopra said she’s ‘protecting’ herself more and setting limits.’
Priyanka Chopra, 39, sparked rumours when she removed her husband Nick Jonas’ surname from her social media accounts in November. Fans quickly assumed the Quantico actress and Jonas Brothers singer, 29, were divorcing, but it turns out she had quite different reasons for reverting to @PriyankaChopra on social media.
«It’s a very vulnerable feeling,» she told Vanity Fair for their February 2022 issue, «that if I share a picture, everything that’s behind me in that picture is going to be zoomed in on, and people are going to conjecture,» she said.
«I believe it appears a lot greater than it is because of the noise of social media and its pervasiveness in our lives.» «I think we give it a lot more respect in real life than it requires,» she said, adding that the scenario was a «professional hazard.»
The relocation, it turns out, was more about focusing on her profession and keeping her personal life more private than previously. The Matrix Resurrections star also told the outlet, «I’m starting to guard myself a lot more because I recognize how much [the entertainment profession] takes out of you.»
«It consumes a part of your soul, constantly ensuring that you say the correct thing, do the right thing, wear the right way, don’t make a mistake, and don’t trip because the entire world is watching.» Or not trip when walking up a red carpet, say something stupid, or have a lousy f—— day.»
While Priyanka was a major star in India before her personal relationship with Nick, she was largely unknown in the United States prior to the launch of ABC’s Quantico. Priyanka Chopra starred in the show from 2015 to 2018, and it was her first major role in an English-language project.
Nick seemed to discover the Bollywood beauty in 2016 when he sent her a DM on Twitter, but their romance didn’t start until 2018. After he proposed with a $200,000 Tiffany cushion-cut diamond ring, the rest is history, and they married in a grandiose ceremony later that year.
Nick, the «Jealous» singer, has also spoken about the couple’s boundaries. «We both understand that publ»ic life is a part of what we do,» he told VF. «However, we’ve established clear boundaries around our personal lives and privacy, and we’ve worked hard to create that small safe haven for ourselves among our friends and family.
