Celebrity relationships are always a great source of curiosity for fans, but the rumours of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas dating have an added allure. Perhaps it is the possibility of cross-border, interracial love, but Twitter has decidedly mixed feelings about the news, mostly because it never saw this coming.

According to a source quoted by JustJared, Priyanka and Jonas - an actor and singer who was formerly a part of the sibling boy band the Jonas Brothers - were spotted spending time with each other over the last week. They were seen attending a baseball game, and a day later Priyanka was photographed chilling with Jonas’ friends over the Memorial Day holiday.

“They’re flirtatious and have been hanging out and text all the time,” the source said, adding that the relationship is ‘very casual’.

But even though they’re just rumours - rumours that have been around for a year - fans on Twitter are in full-blown speculation mode. One person compared their disbelief to learning that Kim Kardashian had visited the White House to discuss prison reform with President Donald Trump, or that the rapper Drake has an illegitimate child, allegedly. Here are some reactions:

Priyanka and Jonas walked the red carpet together at the 2017 Met Gala, which is when the rumours first began. She was asked about her relationship with Jonas, 10 years her junior, by TV host Jimmy Kimmel. “Are you dating Nick Jonas? Isn’t he like 11 years old?”

Her response wasn’t the most definitive. “We were both wearing Ralph Lauren and we decided to go together. I didn’t ask his age. 11? I didn’t know that,” Priyanka said. “Yeah, 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, okay, let’s go together.’ It ended up working out.”

Priyanka recently sparked dating rumours with Avengers star Sebastian Stan, which came months after she was rumoured to be dating another Marvel star, Tom Hiddleston.
