In Malibu, actress Priyanka Chopra and her singer husband Nick Jonas met comedian Rosie O’Donnell. The meeting, however, rapidly became unpleasant.
After an unpleasant meeting in Malibu, US comedian Rosie O’Donnell apologised to Indian actress Priyanka Chopra. On Sunday, Rosie shared two videos on Instagram and TikTok detailing her encounter with Priyanka and her husband, Nick Jonas.
During a recent trip to Malibu, comedian Rosie O’Donnell misstepped when she ran into Nick and Priyanka at a restaurant. O’Donnell mistook Priyanka for author Deepak Chopra’s daughter when she went over to greet them. Rosie later apologised for Chopra and misrepresenting her identity on Instagram in a video.
Deepak Chopra is known as an alternative medicine advocate and a bestselling author who was born in India. Chopra’s books and videos have made him one of the most well-known and wealthy figures in alternative medicine.
In two posts initially published on TikTok and later shared on Instagram, the actress and comedian revealed the precise incident of her meeting with Nick and Priyanka. O’Donnell added in the video that she ran into the Jonas Brothers and remarked, “Nick Jonas and his wife, someone Chopra, were seated next to us… I had assumed she was Deepak Chopra’s daughter.” She went on to say, “‘Hi Nick Jonas, you were fantastic in Kingdom,’ and ‘Hi (Priyanka), I know your father,’ ‘You do?’ she asks. ‘Who’s my father is?’ ‘Deepak,’ I exclaimed. ‘No… and Chopra is a common name,’ she says.”
Rosie then expressed her “embarrassment” at having misidentified Priyanka. The comedian subsequently expressed regret for the error, saying, “I had one job. I messed it up, so Nick Jonas, please accept my apologies, and the Chopra wife, please accept my apologies as well.”
Rosie’s fans assumed she was really ashamed by what had occurred and advised her not to be concerned. “Wow, that’s fantastic!” “I would have shrunk to the floor, but it’s amusing,” one fan remarked. Many people believed Priyanka was Deepak’s daughter as well. Priyanka Chopra is the daughter of late doctors Ashok and Madhu Chopra.
Referring to Priyanka as “Chopra wife” irritated the Baywatch star’s fans and brought it to O’Donnell’s attention, prompting her to share another video of apologies.
In the second video, Rosie expresses her regret to Priyanka and says, “Her name is Priyanka. She’s a well-known actress, perhaps even more well-known than Nick. So I’m sure it was strange at first for her. Priyanka is her given name. And all I want to do now is apologise to her and everyone else who thinks my behaviour was wrong.”
Rosie’s posts received no response from Priyanka Chopra or Nick Jonas.
Chopra and Jonas Brothers member Nick Jonas initially met in September 2016 when Jonas Brothers member Nick Jonas sneaked into Chopra’s Twitter DMs. From there, they texted and ultimately met in person during the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty. Jonas got down on one knee to express his love for the Quantico star.
In May 2018, Us Weekly reported that Jonas and Chopra had begun dating. They were “a terrific match and they are both interested in each other,” according to an insider at the time.
Two months later, the “Jealous” singer proposed to Chopra on her birthday, and the couple married in two separate ceremonies in December in India.
In 2018, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas married. The newlyweds, who had a baby girl through surrogacy, were recently seen out on a date night in Malibu. On Monday, Priyanka Chopra shared a photo from her recent trip with Nick Jonas. She captioned one photo of them holding hands in the car, “my favourite kind of Sunday.”
Priyanka Chopra’s latest film appearance was in The Matrix Resurrections, alongside Keanu Reeves. Following that, the actress has three projects in the works, two in the United States and one in India. Citadel and Text For You will feature the actress. In Farhan Akhtar’s film Jee Le Zara, she will be reunited alongside Alia Bhatt and Katrina Kaif for the first time.
