We think it’s fair to say that we were all saddened to learn that Drake Bell and Josh Peck were no longer friends earlier this year.
For as long as we can remember, they have been Drake and Josh and having them at odds was totally ruining our childhood memories.
Earlier this year, Josh married longtime girlfriend Paige O’Brien in an intimate ceremony in Malibu, and there was a glaring omission: Drake was not on the guest list, and he was pissed.
“When you’re not invited to the wedding the message is clear,” Bell said on Twitter after finding out about the event.
“True colors have come out today. Message is loud and clear. Ties are officially cut. I’ll miss you brotha.”
In the days that followed, a source close to Peck confirmed to US Weekly that Josh felt betrayed that Drake would slam him in such a public manner.
“At Josh’s wedding this weekend some guests were asking Josh Peck where Drake was. Josh told everyone that he and Drake hadn’t spoken in three years.They would tweet each other back on social media a couple of times a year, but never actually spoke,” the tipster dished.
“When Drake didn’t get invited to Josh’s wedding, he started tweeting all of those dramatic memes. Josh was really hurt. They aren’t close anymore, and Josh had a very small wedding.”
We all know that weddings can cost a lot of money, so we can definitely get on board with Josh if he iced Drake out because they were no longer close.
Why would you want to part with cash for someone who you no longer consider a close friend?
The main issue, however, seemed to center on the fact that Drake & Josh producer, Dan Schneider managed to snag an invite to the momentous occasion.
“Drake was upset that Dan Schneider was there,” the insider continued.
“Because he and Josh were friends years ago, he thought he would have gotten an invite, even though they never talk.”
From then on, it seemed like there was no hope for the former friends … until now.
Thanks to the 2017 MTV VMAs, we can now reveal that the former BFFs actually called time on their feud and we are totes doing a happy dance right about now.
Have a look at the picture below.
Unless Drake is secretly holding a knife at Josh’s back, we think it would be fair to assume that they are friends.
“Reunited and it feels so good,” Drake captioned the above picture on Twitter.
Josh even shared the picture, saying: “Hug me.”
It’s unclear whether they will ever be able to be as close as they once were but this is progress.
What do you think of all of this?
