Cho­pra, Jonas all set for ru­moured De­cem­ber nup­tials

The Province - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Priyanka Cho­pra and Nick Jonas are ready to get mar­ried af­ter re­port­edly ob­tain­ing a wed­ding li­cence.

The newly-en­gaged cou­ple are re­port­edly plan­ning a win­ter wed­ding and it seems Nick and his bride-to-be aren’t go­ing to wait months to be­come hus­band and wife.

Sources tell The Blast the ac­tress and her pop star fi­ance have al­ready taken care of the le­gal side of their nup­tials, fil­ing the pa­per­work to ob­tain a mar­riage li­cence at Bev­erly Hills Court­house last week. Re­ports sug­gest the cou­ple will wed in Priyanka’s na­tive In­dia in De­cem­ber, be­fore fil­ing the li­cence in the U.S. to make the mar­riage of­fi­cial in both coun­tries.

Cho­pra has been busy with wed­ding prepa­ra­tions and last week she hosted a bridal shower party at Tif­fany & Co. in New York City.

The bash wasn’t with­out its drama — the bride-to-be was crit­i­cized for wear­ing a strap­less March­esa dress de­signed by Har­vey We­in­stein’s ex-wife to the cel­e­bra­tion. Cho­pra re­sponded to the back­lash by ex­plain­ing she didn’t think it was fair her long­time friend, Ge­orgina Chap­man, should be vil­i­fied for the al­leged sins of her for­mer hus­band, who has been ac­cused of sex­ual mis­con­duct, as­sault, and rape by mul­ti­ple women.

The cou­ple sep­a­rated last year, shortly af­ter the first al­le­ga­tions against the pro­ducer were pub­lished. Har­vey has since been ac­cused of sex­ual mis­con­duct by over 60 women. We­in­stein has de­nied all al­le­ga­tions of non-con­sen­sual sex.

Open­ing up about her de­ci­sion to wear March­esa, Priyanka said, “Ge­orgina’s a friend of mine... and it’s not her fault. And I don’t think it’s right to take it out on a self-made woman what some­body in her life did (sic). That’s the wrong at­ti­tude...”
