Here’s Why We Think Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra Are Actually Dating

Everyone can’t stop buzzing about whether Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are in a relationship. The stars were first linked when they showed up together at the Met Gala in 2017, and then in May 2018, they were seen out having a good time, which reignited the rumors that they were an item.

While Meghan Markle’s best friend and our favorite JoBro haven’t announced their official status, the way they behave totally makes us think they’re dating. Here’s more on that including where they were spotted all over each other (page 6).

The ‘just friends’ line

Following their appearance at the Met Gala in 2017, Chopra and Jonas pulled the old “friends” card when asked about attending the affair together. Jonas explained that since they were both wearing Ralph Lauren and would be taking photos with one another they just decided to go together.

Chopra echoed that when she visited Jimmy Kimmel Live! shortly after the event, telling the late night host, “We were on the same table and we already know each other. So, he was like ‘Hey, you wanna go together?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, OK, let’s go together.'”

Even if they’re being truthful about that, they had to know showing up with each other would certainly get the dating rumor mill going.

The two spent Memorial Day weekend together

A baseball game with 20,000 other people probably isn’t the best place to go if you’re famous and don’t want to be seen, but that’s exactly where they were spotted on May 26, 2018. A fan shot video of the pair at a Los Angeles Dodgers game which brought back all those old romance rumors.

Chopra and Jonas also reportedly took in a show over the holiday weekend and went to see Beauty and the Beast Live in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl, which seems like a good date night.

The pair seemed inseparable following Memorial Day weekend as well when they joined some of their famous friends, including Wilmer Valderrama, Chord Overstreet, and Glen Powell aboard a yacht.

Powell posted a group photo on Instagram and we couldn’t help but notice that Jonas had his arm around Chopra and they appeared super cozy under a blanket. Yep, they definitely look like a couple.

Next: They liked what they saw.  

They liked and commented on each other’s posts

Their names started popping on each other’s Instagram posts because they couldn’t help but click the like button.

In June 2018, Jonas set the internet on fire when he commented on a photo Chopra posted of herself laughing and eating In-N-Out burgers with friends. “That smile,” he wrote along with a heart emoji for all to see.

Of course, fans took notice and the dating rumors intensified.

Next: Their social media PDA continued.

They posted some flirty comments on Instagram

The Quantico star and the “Jealous” artist engaged in more social media PDA with their sweet comments. A few days after Jonas liked and commented on her post, Chopra flirted back.

“Who is cuter? lol,” the actress wrote in the comments section of a video he posted with koala bear at the Taronga Zoo Sydney. This may be all the proof we need since flirting on Instagram pretty much makes things official.

Next: They were all over each other here. 

They got very close at dinner

ET reported that on May 31, the singer and actress went to dinner together at Toca Madera in West Hollywood, California. A source inside the restaurant told the publication that the duo got there around 8 p.m. and were ” very affectionate with one another, with Priyanka running her hands through his hair as they cozied up together at their corner table in the garden patio. They were cute and seemed to be enjoying each other’s company, laughing and smiling.”

That definitely sounds like more than friends.

From what we’ve seen so far, it sure seems like they are dating. Some publications even reported that sources have leaked that the two are a couple. But until we hear conformation from one of them directly, we can’t say for certain.
