The article accuses newlywed Priyanka, 36, who married Nick Jonas, 26, earlier this week in a three-day event at Jodhpur’s Umaid Bhawan Palace, of ‘scamming’ her husband into marriage.
The article, published on The Cut, a fashion e-zine produced by New York Magazine, has since been removed after a outcry from readers.
The article suggested Priyanka and her team targeted Nick 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.”

Today, Priyanka responded with a dignified response. She told New Delhi-based publication 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.”
Both Priyanka’s new brother-in-law, Joe Jonas, and his fiancée Sophie Turner, have responded to the article on Twitter.
British actress Jameela Jamil has also responded to the article on Twitter, sarcastically stating it’s “always fun being a South Asian woman in this world.”
