NEW DELHI: Brother-in-law Joe Jonas and fiancé Sophie Turner have come to actress sister-in-law Priyanka Chopra's rescue.

The 'Game Of Thrones' star and her soon-to-be husband took to Twitter to slam an article published by international magazine calling Chopra a "global scam artist" following her marriage to American singer Nick Jonas.

Thrashing the article on social media Joe & Sophie posted on Twitter:

According to media reports, the article, titled 'Is Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s Love for Real?' suggested that the 'Fashion' star was a gold digger. It further claimed that Priyanka-Nick's wedding was just a way for them to make money.

The magazine published its article claiming that Chopra tricked Jonas into a lifetime commitment.

The publication faced widespread criticism by Bollywood celebrities and fans on social media.

Actresses Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhasker, Sona Mohapatra called the article disgusting, racist, sexist and baseless.

However, the magazine has now removed the piece and apologised for the same on their official website. "Upon further editorial review, we found this story did not meet our standards. We’ve removed it and apologize," the website mentioned.

Chopra and Jonas got married in a big fat wedding over the weekend at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur. They tied the knot in two elaborate ceremonies as per the Christian ritual on Saturday and Hindu ritual on Sunday.
