Priyanka Chopra finally explains why she deleted her husband’s last name from his Instagram account.
The actress, who is married to singer Nick Jonas, described the scrutiny she suffered on social media after the change as “an occupational risk” for Vanity Fair for her February cover.
The 39-year-old recalled the “Random Monday in November” when she returned only to her first and last name on Instagram, which immediately sparked speculation from fans about an impending separation.
Chopra and Jonas, 29, tied the knot in 2018.

“It’s a very vulnerable feeling, actually, that if I post a photo, whatever is behind me in that photo is going to be enlarged and people will be speculating,” the “Quantico” star explained. “It’s just an occupational risk … Because of the noise of our social media, because of the prevalence that it has in our lives, I think it sounds a lot bigger than it is. I think we give him a lot more credit in real life, and I don’t think he needs it. “
Shortly after the rumors escalated, Chopra left an affectionate comment on one of Jonas’ workout videos.
“Shit! I just died in your arms…” she wrote, followed by a few heart emojis.

Chopra also addressed the recent backlash she faced for her role in the competitive series “The Activist”. The show has been criticized by critics for its format, which has seen activists clash in an attempt to shine a light on their causes. The star admitted that the show was wrong and even apologized for her participation.
“It’s really tragic when something like this happens because it’s never the intention,” she told the outlet. “It makes me sad because I try to live my life like a good person every day, doing my best, like everyone else. And it would just be nice to be seen for that sometimes.”
