Newlywed Priyanka Chopra responds to article calling her a 'global scam artist'

Priyanka Chopra has responded to an article calling her a “global scam artist” in the wake of her marriage to Nick Jonas.

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.”

You can read further extracts from the now-deleted piece on the India Today website.

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.”

One of the most special things that our relationship has given us is a merging of families who love and respect each other's faiths and cultures. And so planning our wedding with an amalgamation of both was so so amazing. An important part of the pre wedding rituals for the girl in an Indian wedding is the Mehendi. Once again we made it our own and it was an afternoon that kicked off the celebrations in the way we both dreamed. @nickjonas
This was truly magical. @priyankachopra Link in bio @people

Priyanka and I have been looking forward to the Sangeet (the musical evening and a pre-wedding ritual) to see what each side of the family had put together. We’re both so full of gratitude for the effort and the love put forth by both families. What an amazing start to a lifetime!! @priyankachopra
It all began as a fierce song & dance competition between the families but ended, as always, as a huge celebration of love.  Nick and I were looking forward to the Sangeet (musical evening), another pre wedding ritual.. and to see what each side had put together. And what a performance it was. Each family telling our stories through song and dance, filled with lots of laughter and love. We were both filled with gratitude for the effort, the love and the laughter and will carry the memories of this special evening for the rest of our lives. It is an amazing start to a lifetime of togetherness for our families and friends...#grateful @nickjonas 📹/📷: @calebjordanlee @josevilla @josephradhik
