Indian actress Priyanka Chopra and her husband Nick Jonas sparked divorce rumors following her latest social media activity. The 'Baywatch' actress had adopted Nick's surname after tying the knot with him in 2018. However, recently, Priyanka removed Jonas from her Instagram username and kept it only as Priyanka Chopra. Her Instagram bio showed her name as only 'Priyanka' sans any family name. Over 70 million eagle-eyed fans of the actress spotted the change soon enough, as rumors about their split started spreading.  

The 39-year-old actress has been married to 29-year-old Jonas Brothers' vocalist Nick Jonas since 2018. Their gala wedding, which involved both traditional Hindu and Catholic ceremonies, is still considered one of the most extravagant celebrity weddings in recent times. The couple is known for their unabashed PDA at red carpet events or on social media and regularly shares cozy photographs together. Priyanka's fans in US and India smelled something fishy when she suddenly decided to drop her husband's name altogether without any formal announcement.

The actress unveiled her first look from her upcoming movie 'Matrix: Resurrection' but refrained from making any comments about the sudden name change. Meanwhile, Nick Jonas also kept frenzied fans in the dark as he simply shared a workout video on his Instagram page following Priyanka's name change. He did not address the split rumors either despite fans bombing the comment section inquiring about the same. 

However, it now appears that everything is alright between Hollywood's new power couple. Priyanka left a gushing comment below Nick's workout video captioned 'Monday motivation. Let's get it.' 

"Damn! I just died in your arms," the actress, fondly called PeeCee,  commented with heart eyes, a sweating emoji, and a simple heart emoticon. It came as a sigh of relief to angsty fans who were worried if the couple are indeed separating just days before their third wedding anniversary. The couple recently celebrated Diwali together and shared romantic photos and videos of themselves from the party. 

Meanwhile, Priyanka's mother Madhu Chopra also quashed the speculations about their divorce. Talking to Indian news agency News18, Madhu Chopra strongly lashed out at the rumormongers saying, "It's all rubbish, don't spread rumors." 

Priyanka will be spotted in 'The Matrix Resurrections' next which is releasing on December 22, 2021. On the other hand, Nick Jonas will be appearing on the 'Jonas Brothers Family Roast' with his siblings Joe and Kevin Jonas, which will drop on Netflix on November 23, 2021.
