Is Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas' relationship for real? Or is it a publicity stunt? We may not have all the answers yet, but here's what we do know:
Fact: Priyanka and Nick met shortly before the 2017 Met Gala. When Jimmy Kimmel cross-questioned Priyanka about Nic, she said they had known each other for some time and decided to walk the red carpet together solely because they were both wearing Ralph Lauren: "So he was like ‘Hey, you wanna go together?’ And I was like yeah, OK, let’s go together. It ended up working out".
Priyanka is not one to talk about her love life and has never really admitted to being in a relationship. But it did seem, even to Jimmy, that there was something going on between Nick and her. “You know when one day you become the director of FBI, you will be subjected to a polygraph test. And I am gonna make sure they are all Nick Jonas related questions,” he joked.
The whole idea of them being a couple soon died down after that particular interview. It's safe to assume that Priyanka wasn't lying to Jimmy and that there actually wasn't much to the story back then.
Things look very different now. The couple hasn't shied away from the paps in the recent past and have been spotted all over the place together:
Priyanka attended Nick's cousin's wedding and met the family yesterday!
They were recently seen at JFK airport together.
And who could forget this totally adorable Twitter PDA?
Or this video of them at a Dodgers game in LA...

Also, Priyanka cosying up to Nick with their friends is pretty damn cute.

Cute pics aside, at the risk of sounding super cynical, it does seem slightly fishy that these rumours have surfaced right after Quantico was cancelled. Could this all be just for publicity? After all, Priyanka seems nothing like Nick's exes and vice versa. They're clearly not each other's type. But, hey, maybe that's a good thing since none of their past relationships made it. Let's take a look at some of their more serious alleged (in Priyanka's case as she has never outright admitted to any relationship) and confirmed (Nick has been more vocal), romances:
1. Olivia Culpo
Nick seemed totally in love with Olivia but BFF Demi Lovato didn't think they were right for each other, and after two years, the two called it quits. They seem to be on great terms, though. Nick spoke to E! News post-breakup and said, "I wish the best for her in the future and we had a great two years."
2. Miley Cyrus
They kept their relationship quiet for a while but Miley finally opened up after things had ended between them and admitted that Nick and her had been dating and that she cried straight for a month and even dyed her hair black to mourn their break-up.
3. Selena Gomez
Selena and Nick dated very briefly in 2008 and Selena famously poked fun of their date. Whatever they had quickly fizzled out and was pretty short lived.
4. Kendall Jenner
There was nothing really confirmed about Nick and Kendall but apparently they hung out for a while together without it getting serious.
5. Delta Goodrem
The relationship between Nick and this Aussie beauty and singer lasted for 10 months. They're still on good terms and recently even reunited for a dinner with friends in 2017.
PeeCee likes to keep her private life, private and has never admitted outright to being with anyone. "When there's a ring on my finger, the world will know," is what she has always maintained. There have been several rumours of her relationships with some of Bollywood's leading men, some of whom are, GASP, married. Priyanka has revealed a little bit about the kind of guy she's looking for even though she may have stayed mum about who she's dating. Here's a look at her alleged link-ups:
1. Shah Rukh Khan
The reigning King of Bollywood has been married for almost 27 years to his high school sweetheart, Gauri. There were no rumours of him having any extra marital anything till Priyanka came along. Shah Rukh and Priyanka never admitted to being together but a few pap shots taken late in the night of PeeCee visiting Shah Rukh's office looked more than a little friendly. Gauri went to town trying to blacklist Priyanka and it was even reported that Karan Johar, Shah Rukh's best friend told Priyanka off on Twitter. It was a big fat scandal that rocked Bollywood for months. Rumour has it they were together for a few years and that their relationship recently ended. Priyanka even said that she had just come out of a major relationship. Was she referring to Shah Rukh?
2. Harman Baweja
Again, there's no outright confirmation of Priyanka and Harman having ever dated but rumour has it they did for five years! They did two movies together but the relationship fizzled out after a few years. They're still on good terms, says Harman.
3. Akshay Kumar
Another reigning Bollywood superstar, Akshay Kumar has been married for almost 17 years to his wife Twinkle. Rumours of Priyanka and his affair started in 2003 when they were doing a movie together. Akshay's wife Twinkle fought with him in the lobby of a Goa hotel because of his involvement with Priyanka. Drama, drama!
4. Shahid Kapoor
Shahid and Priyanka supposedly didn't date for long but their relationship made headlines when they were allegedly together. When the income tax raids happened, Shahid was at Priyanka's apartment, sparking all kinds of buzz about them being a confirmed couple. Priyanka even admitted that he was there when they came by! The relationship, if it did exist, didn't last long and the two quickly moved on. Shahid is now happily married and has a lovely daughter with another child on the way.
From what we've seen, Nick and Priyanka don't completely seem like each other's type. But then who knows, maybe breaking each other's patterns will do them a whole lot of good and they may find something super special. Or maybe they're just having some fun. Only time will tell. Stay tuned for more.
