News that Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas might be dating has taken the world by storm. And in particular, everyone’s desperate to find out exactly how the couple met.
As a source told Us Weekly earlier this week, “They are dating and it’s brand new. It’s a good match and they are both interested in each other.”
But even before the source appeared to confirm that 35-year-old Chopra and 25-year-old Jonas were dating, eagle-eyed fans had spotted the pair snuggling up over Memorial Day weekend, while hanging out with some famous friends:
As for how they met, Chopra and Jonas originally ignited dating rumors when they attended the Met Gala together in 2017. In all of the photos of them, it definitely looks as though they’re on a date, though according to Bustle, both Chopra and Jonas claimed the joint appearance “was purely platonic.”
At the time, Jimmy Kimmel even asked the Quantico star why she attended the Met Gala with Jonas, to which she replied, “We were both wearing Ralph Lauren, and we decided to go together, and it was fun.”
Bustle also reports, via the Indo Asian News Service, that in December 2017, Jonas apparently discussed meeting Chopra. Jonas allegedly said, “[Chopra and I] met through a mutual friend, who she did Quantico with—this guy Graham—and we met up like, in New York the first time, and the same day I think we found out that we were both going to the Met Gala with Ralph Lauren.”
Bustle even did some digging, and reports that the Graham in question is most likely Graham Rogers, Chopra’s Quantico co-star, as he also co-starred with Jonas in the movie, Careful What You Wish For.
Basically, if these quotes are to be believed, then “this guy Graham” is responsible for uniting everyone’s new fave celeb couple. Thanks, Graham!
