Those of you who watched Drake Bell and Josh Peck on the Nickelodeon show ‘Drake & Josh’ would be aware of their close friendship. But, the two stars did face hiccups in their bromance when Josh was getting married. What happened between Drake and Josh? Are they still friends?
Even though the duo came to be known for ‘Drake and Josh’, they first met each other when they featured on The Amanda Show. Years later, fans were taken aback when Drake went on to tweet against Josh publicly.
A wedding invite led to differences between the friends
While fans were thrilled when Josh announced his wedding in 2018 to his longtime girlfriend Paige O’Brien, Drake took to Twitter to express his disappointment.
Drake revealed in his tweets that Josh hadn’t invited him to his and Paige’s wedding. The actor wrote, “When you’re not invited to the wedding the message is clear. Loyalty is key. ALWAYS remember where you came from. True colors have come out today. Message is loud and clear. Ties are officially cut. I’ll miss you brotha.”
However, he deleted the tweets later and explained in an interview that he “was just being cranky” over not being called to his friend’s wedding.
They are on good terms now
Although Drake’s tweets blew up on social media and fans were convinced that the two friends had fallen apart, they continue to be on good terms and share a cordial relationship.
In an interview with Seventeen.com, Drake shared that he and Josh “talked about” their beef and their relationship is as strong as it always was.
Drake said, “We’re such a big part of each other’s lives. Like our history goes back before ‘Drake & Josh’ and before ‘The Amanda Show’. I knew him before we even stepped in front of a camera together.”
“We’re always going to be brothers. But even outside this whole facade of ‘Oh we’re brothers,’ we really are good friends,” he added further..
To provide their fans a clarification on their friendship, Drake shared a video titled “Drake and Josh Reunion” after attending the 2019 VMAs. While Josh tells the viewers “You’re welcome, childhood” with his arms around Drake, the latter adds, “It just feels right”.
Drake Bell revealed he’s married
It is unclear whether Josh got to attend Drake’s wedding, but the latter recently revealed on Twitter that he has been married and even has a kid with his wife Janet Von Schmeling.
The actor’s tweet came after he pleaded guilty to attempted child endangerment. He was sentenced to two years’ probation in Cleveland on Monday, July 12.
Addressing the rumors surrounding his personal life, the actor shared a tweet in Spanish, which read, “In response to various rumours that are incorrect, I have been married for almost 3 years, and we are blessed to be the parents of a wonderful son. Thank you very much to all my fans around the world for your good wishes.”
