Kevin Jonas’ wife Danielle has hit back at false speculation suggesting she doesn’t get along with new sister-in-law Priyanka Chopra after she shared a sweet birthday wish to actress Sophie Turner.
The Game of Thrones star, who is engaged to Kevin’s brother Joe Jonas, turned 23 on Thursday (21Feb19), and Danielle took to Instagram to post a gushing tribute to the birthday girl.
Alongside a snap of the two ladies smiling side-by-side, the mother-of-two wrote, “Happy birthday @sophiet!! my girls and I are so blessed to have you in our lives, they can’t get enough of their aunt sophie (sic).
“You deserve the world and i hope you’re having an amazing birthday! love you.”
Some followers thought Danielle’s message was a subtle snub to actress Priyanka, who wed Nick Jonas in December (18), with one remarking, “The low-key shade in this tho (sic). I love sassy Dani”.
“I read it the same way… shade against priyanka right (sic),” replied another fan.
However, Danielle, who celebrates her 10th wedding anniversary with Kevin this year (19), was quick to shut down the gossip, insisting there was nothing rude about her post.
“Nope no shade about Priyanka,” she responded. “It’s just Sophie’s birthday so I wanted to say happy birthday. I think everyone should stop with thinking that we don’t like Priyanka she is lovely. Iam (sic) so over people trying to make a problem.”
Danielle has since turned off the ability for followers to leave comments on the image.
Rumors of a rift between the two ladies first began circulating in November (18), when Danielle had to skip the Baywatch beauty’s bachelorette party because her family was in the process of moving house.
“Wish I could have gone,” she commented on a photo of Priyanka and Sophie on the night out. “I’m glad you guys are having fun!”
The tabloid chatter continued weeks later as Kevin and Danielle decided to leave their two daughters, five-year-old Alena and two-year-old Valentina, with relatives at home in New Jersey as the couple attended Nick and Priyanka’s lavish nuptials in the bride’s native India.
Meanwhile, Priyanka also sent her best wishes to Sophie for her special day, expressing her excitement at taking part in the Brit’s wedding day, reportedly set to take place this summer (19).
“To one of the most beautiful, fun people I’ve known,” she wrote. “Happy birthday @sophiet you are loved! I can’t wait to see you as a bride. You will be stunning! Have a brilliant year love.”
Sophie and Joe became engaged in 2017.
