Drake Bell & Josh Peck Reunite With Big Hug At MTV VMAs
DRAKE BELL & JOSH PECK END FEUD AT VMAS
The former Nickelodeon stars of Drake & Josh had been feuding since Peck allegedly chose not to invite Bell to his wedding this past June. It appears, however, that the drama is long forgotten between the pair. They embraced each other at the VMAs, and both posted a photo of the hug on their social media accounts with the caption, “Hug me…”
Fans were excited that the duo made up, with one commenting, “The kid inside of me is screaming with happiness.” After Peck, 30, snubbed Bell, 31, from his wedding to film editor Paige O’Brien in Malibu, Bell took to Twitter to address the upset. In a series of now-deleted tweets, the actor spoke about his exclusion and publicly ended his friendship with Peck.
“When you’re not invited to the wedding the message is clear,” he wrote, before adding, “True colours have come out today. Message is loud and clear. Ties are officially cut. I’ll miss ya brotha… Loyalty is key. ALWAYS remember where you came from.”
It appears Bell has since cooled off from his anger, and admitted he had just been “caught off guard” after learning of the wedding. “So, it was just one of those things where it was just like, ‘You didn’t even tell me?! I had to find out on social media?’ And then you’re like, ‘You know what!? Fine!'” Bell said in an interview. “And then I’m like, ‘wait, I shouldn’t have done that. I should have just texted that to him,’ you know. I was just being cranky.”
He also described how it took him by surprise that the feud became such a topic of conversation. “That was a shock,” he told People. “I didn’t think it would that big of a deal. I did not realize that it was going to have such a viral effect.”
Bell is currently working as a model and musician, and released a new single and album this summer.
