Nick Jonas’ ex-girlfriend Olivia Culpo reacts to his fast engagement to Priyanka Chopra
Olivia and Nick dated for nearly two years
Olivia Culpo was one of Nick Jonas’ most serious public girlfriends. The two dated for nearly two years, splitting in 2015 after they were first spotted kissing at the 2013 U.S. Open. Now, Jonas is back at the U.S. Open with his new fiancée Priyanka Chopra, and Culpo is amicably commenting on their engagement to People. (Culpo is currently dating NFL player Danny Amendola.)
Love is hard when you’re famous, she stressed, and she is supportive of all love, exes included. “I think that any time anybody can find love, especially in this industry because there is obviously a lot — it’s difficult; you can see there’s a track record of things not working out. So I’m so happy for him,” she said. “I wish that everybody can find love and happiness. So that does not mean that I would not wish that for him.”
All the stereotypes Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are shattering with their relationship
Priyanka is taller than Nick for starters, and she still wears heels. Let's just say that height is a taboo that needs to be struck off our books, stat. Take a look at celebrity couple Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Anand Ahuja — the Bollywood star is taller than her businessman husband, but that hasn't interfered with their relationship at all.
Society thinks it's perfectly fine, even normal, for there to be huge age differences between partners – just as long as the man is older. It's completely normal for Bollywood actors to be seen courting women two decades younger than them onscreen (not to mention off it). But women who date younger men get saddled with unfortunate nicknames and raised eyebrows. Priyanka is not here for these double standards, and has zero interest in what you think of the 10-year age gap between her and Nick. That's commendable, especially when every move you make is going to be documented and dissected by 7.6 billion people. Take it from the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, who's three years older than her new husband, Prince Harry.
Let's make it clear, Priyanka was never going to sit back and let a man pay for her. What's cooler here is that, by all accounts, she's more famous, makes more money and is more influential than her date. Just looking at their social media, the Quantico actor has over 59 million followers hanging on to her every word and following her fashion choices, while the singer-songwriter's clout stands at a powerful but smaller 25.2 million. Kudos to Nick for not being threatened by a woman who is more successful than him.
She's 100% desi. He's American, born and bred. But does that matter? Not really. In fact, it's an opportunity to learn more about each other's culture and traditions, and soaking in the best of both worlds. Nick even commented on one of Priyanka's Instagram posts with a cheesy but 100% accurate "Mujhse shaadi karogi?" Another great example? American actress Meghan Markle, who's a member of the British Royal Family now. Here's to successful and long-lasting relationships.
