Allow Priyanka Chopra to set the record straight on the gossip item that she is on the brink of ending her friendship with Meghan Markle because the Duchess of Sussex didn't attend Chopra's Indian wedding: It's B.S.

Chopra was on Watch What Happens Live last night when a caller asked if she and Meghan were feuding because Meghan missed her wedding to Nick Jonas, and Chopra missed Meghan's New York City baby shower.

"Oh my god," she said. "No, it’s not true." Then she laughed because the notion was that absurd.

E! got a report earlier this week that basically debunked the rumor that originated in Page Six, too. "All the rumors that Priyanka and Meghan aren't friends anymore are totally not true," a source told the outlet. "Priyanka and Meghan are still very close friends and they talk frequently. Meghan confides in Priyanka about the adjustments she has to make with being a royal."

That source also said that the idea that the two were upset with each other for missing their life events was ridiculous. "Just because Priyanka didn't go to the shower, or that Meghan couldn't come to her wedding(s), doesn't mean anything about their friendship. They're still very close friends and Meghan considers Priyanka one of her closest confidants."

This Meghan-Priyanka rift rumor all started when one source told Page Six that Chopra was pissed Meghan missed her wedding. “Their friendship is over unless Meghan apologizes," that source laimed. "Priyanka is a huge international star with a tremendous social media following. She is probably more famous worldwide than Meghan is. She feels Meghan didn’t respect her, and didn’t respect their friendship.”
