Nick Jonas Steals Middle School Move to Flirt with Priyanka Chopra on Instagram

Sorry, teens of the late '00s—looks like all the Jo Bros are off the market.

Following reports that Nick Jonas, 25, and Priyanka Chopra, 35, are dating, the former boy bander hasn’t wasted a moment trying to thwart the rumor. In fact, he’s only added more fuel to the media’s fire.

On Sunday, the Quantico star posted a photo of her and her manager Anjula Acharia and filmmaker friend Mubina Rattonsey indulging in In-N-Out burgers and fries. While Anjula and Mubina pose for the camera, burgers in hand, Priyanka is caught mid-laugh, her eyes shut and mouth breaking into a huge smile.

No big deal, right? In the grand tradition of models posing with pizza, movie stars with burgers is the next logical step. However, the story here lies beneath the picture-perfect façade and *gasp,* within the comments section …

Buried in a heap of digital fan mail, Mr. Jonas left a small yet hugely flirty message to Chopra, commenting “That smile” accompanied by a heart emoji. Yes, the same move you used to woo your crush in middle school (except on MySpace, not Instagram) apparently still works.

While neither party has confirmed their relationship, we will no doubt be shipping it for the foreseeable future.
