In the article, the journalist called Priyanka a ‘global scam-artist’. She also accused PeeCee of trapping the American singer into a fraudulent relationship. Minutes after the article went online, it was criticised not only by Twitterati but Bollywood celebs like Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhasker also slammed the publication for the write-up.
Eventually, the website had to take it down. On being asked about it, PeeCee’s mother, Madhu Chopra revealed to Mid-day, “It is a happy phase for our family, and we don’t want to be disturbed by such idiotic things. I am happy that my daughter is married to someone she truly loves. I don’t want to give publicity to those fools. There are some donkeys who do anything they feel like, but their actions don’t affect us.”
Earlier, when Priyanka was asked to comment on the same, she said, “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”.
The couple tied the knot as per Christian and Hindu rituals in Jodhpur. They hosted their first wedding reception in Delhi. If reports are to be believed, their Mumbai reception will take place in mid-December.
