An article published on New York Magazine’s The Cut accused newlywed Priyanka Chopra, 36, who married Nick Jonas, 26, of “scamming” her husband into marriage.
The piece, which went live shortly following the couple’s three-day nuptials at Jodhpur’s Umaid Bhawan Palace, has since been removed following an outcry from readers.
An earlier story about Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas did not meet our standards. We’ve removed it and apologize https://t.co/DkcOatMV2z

The article suggested Chopra and her team targeted Jonas for his success, claiming, “Nicholas Jonas married into a fraudulent relationship against his will.”
It continued: “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.”
On Thursday, Chopra responded, telling 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. These kind of random things can’t disturb it.”
About the “vile, negative” story about her on @TheCut, @priyankachopra : 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. These kind of random things can’t disturb it”

Both Chopra’s new brother-in-law, Joe Jonas, and his fiancée, Sophie Turner, responded to the article on Twitter.

This is wildly inappropriate and totally disgusting. Very disappointed that The Cut would give anyone a platform to spew such bullshit. https://t.co/iYKaifKJP6

British actress Jameela Jamil also weighed in, sarcastically stating it’s “always fun being a South Asian woman in this world.”
Always fun being a South Asian woman in this world. Go on @priyankachopra enjoy your fucking life. We’re proud of you. And congrats on your American @voguemagazine cover out tomorrow! ❤️ https://t.co/NbABxgcqey
