New Delhi: Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas's grand wedding at the majestic Umaid Bhawan in Jodhpur might have left the fans speechless for its grandeur, but a US-based magazine 'The Cut' has a totally different take on it. The magazine has come up with a controversial article on the love story of the desi girl with the international music sensation, calling her a 'global scam artist'.

The article questions the very basis of their relationship and how they met a couple of times in the US before falling in love and finally getting hitched. It starts from analysing their relationship. An excerpt from The Cut reads: “After two months of dating, they became engaged in July 2018. An engagement that’s been riddled with more SponCon nonsense than even I could even dream up! Ranging from Tiffany’s to Amazon to the Google Pixel 3 phone to Ralph Lauren (the man who first dressed them as a couple), Priyanka and Nick are finding ways for their “love” make them money — circumventing the methods used by the celebrities of yore, who stuck to selling their wedding or baby photos to magazines. Priyanka’s commitment to monetizing this life milestone should have been a huge red flag for Nick, but poor thing seems to be blinded by love.”

It goes on to call PeeCee a global scam artist hinting that all Nick wanted was a fling but instead ended up marrying the 'Quantico' star.

“At times, marriage can be a beautifully wonderful union that warms even the coldest of hearts, but sadly, this union evokes no such feeling. All Nick wanted was a possible fling with Hollywood’s latest It Woman, but instead he wound up staring straight at a life sentence with a global scam artist. Even more upsetting, she’s a scam artist who never even took the time to make sure he was comfortable riding a horse before arranging for him to enter their wedding ceremony on horseback.”

Priyanka became a huge global star after the immense success of her superhit televisions series 'Quantico' by ABC. It ran for three seasons and gave PeeCee a solid foundation in the West.

The article has been criticised on social media for its racist comments against the actress and the audacity of questioning Priyanka and Nick's relationship.
