Priyanka Chopra Responds to Those Nick Jonas Split Rumors and Her Instagram Name Change

She's finally speaking out on what went down.

Remember back in November when Priyanka Chopra removed “Jonas” from her Instagram, and the internet absolutely panicked under the assumption that she and Nick were about to split? It was a whole thing:

Priyanka made it clear exactly where she and Nick stood at the time by commenting “Damn! I just died in your arms… 😍 🥵 ❤️” on a picture of him lifting weights, and now she's opening up about the experience in a new interview with Vanity Fair.

"It's a very vulnerable feeling, actually, that if I post a picture, everything that's behind me in that picture is going to be zoomed in on, and people are going to speculate," Priyanka said. “It’s just a professional hazard… Because of the noise of social media, because of the prevalence that it has in our lives, I think it seems a lot larger than it is. I think that we give it a lot more credence in real life, and I don't think it needs that."

She also noted that she's "starting to protect myself a lot more" since the entertainment industry can take a lot out of a person. "It takes a part of your soul, constantly trying to make sure that you say the right thing, do the right thing, dress the right way, not make a mistake, not trip because the whole world is going to watch," she said. "Or not fall when you're walking up on a red carpet or say something wrong or have a bad fucking day."

Oh, and before we go: Nick also chimed in about protecting his relationship with Priyanka, saying "We both know that public life is something that comes with what we do. But we've set real boundaries around our personal lives, our privacy, and worked really hard to create that little safe haven for ourselves with our friends and family."
