Is Priyanka Chopra really planning Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner's wedding? One of this week's tabloids claims the actress is helping organize her brother-in-law's nuptials. Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we've learned the truth.
According to Star, Chopra is arranging an expensive and over-the-top ceremony for the musician and "Game of Thrones" star. A supposed source tells the magazine, "Priyanka is doing this as a favor to Sophie and Joe, but also because she loves weddings. Sophie is thrilled because she loved how Priyanka planned her wedding to Nick in December."
The alleged insider further contends that Chopra's ideas for the wedding are "ridiculously expensive," including "live doves, orchids shipped from Asia, a full orchestra and a gospel choir at a fancy estate." The actress also supposedly wants to be in charge of designing the invitations, as well as overseeing the "food, decor and even the lighting, photography and videography."
"Priyanka has an army of assistants making calls and booking appointments," adds the questionable tipster. "Joe did tell Sophie to spend what she wants, which was really generous of him, but he's going to be in for a shock when he gets the bill. At the very least, this is going to be a $1 million wedding." The outlet conveniently fails to mention when and where the wedding will be taking place.
The tabloid's premise is coming from an anonymous "insider," but Gossip Cop checked in with Chopra's spokesperson, who tells us on the record that it's untrue. Despite what the magazine's unidentified "source" claims, a rep qualified to speak on the actress's behalf assures us she's not planning her brother-in-law's wedding.
It's worth noting, Joe discussed his upcoming wedding to Turner during an interview on "The Late Late Show" earlier this month. When asked what he learned from his brother Nick's wedding, the singer joked, "[I learned] mostly things not to do." He went on to tease his brother for having "18" weddings, referring to the numerous ceremonies he and Chopra held to celebrate their nuptials. The musician made no mention of his new sister-in-law being involved in the planning process.
Additionally, Star has a very poor track record when it comes to accurately reporting about the actress. Last month, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for falsely claiming Chopra was pregnant with Nick's baby. The actress isn't expecting a child at this time. Shortly before that, the outlet made up a story about Chopra and Turner planning to get pregnant at the same time. That's not happening either. This latest article is more fiction from the unreliable publication.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
