Your inner child might already be sobbing, but, believe it or not, the alleged Drake Bell & Josh Peck feud can get even sadder. If you've watched the cult Nickelodeon show, you'll know that it's about two step-brothers, who, despite their differences, forge a lasting bond. So when Josh Peck reportedly didn't invite Drake Bell to his wedding and Bell allegedly tweeted his displeasure about this and then deleted the evidence, the world despaired. But the one thing that makes this even more tragic is that, according to US Weekly, Drake & Josh creator Dan Schneider was invited to the wedding. (Bustle reached out to Schneider for comment, but did not receive an immediate response.)
This was allegedly salt in the wound for Bell, with an unnamed source stating that "Drake was upset that Dan Schneider was there because he and Josh were friends years ago, he thought he would have gotten an invite, even though they never talk." Still, you might want to take this rumor with a grain of salt since there doesn't appear to be any actual photos of Schneider at the wedding and he posted a throwback photo of Bell from the show the next day.
However, the rumored feud that has been ruining your childhood can does get worse. According to US Weekly, even Vine star Jason Nash attended Peck's wedding — and he was only an extra on Drake & Josh. This definitely adds a sadder dimension to Bell's alleged since-deleted tweet, "True colors have come out today. Message is loud and clear. Ties are officially cut. I'll miss you brotha."
Still, maybe Peck's alleged decision to invite Schneider and not Bell wasn't the slight his former co-worker may have believed it to be. According to an MTV interview from April 2017, it sounded as if Peck was still in regular contact with Schneider:
"You'll see something that goes slightly viral in a meme, like a particular line: 'Have a good day; don't tell me what to do,' ...I'll text Dan because this is literally something he wrote 13 years ago. I'll be like, 'Can you believe this, dude? Your lines are still completely loved and people are still getting a kick out of it.'"
Compare that to what Peck said about Bell on the Allegedly with Theo Von & Matthew Cole Weiss podcast which came out on June 20:
"When people see Drake and I together and it rarely happens, they're like, 'What, what are you doing here?' I have no good answer for when people ask — and I get [it] all the time — it's 'Where's Drake?' I go, 'I wish I had a better answer but probably at home. Whole Foods?”
His statement that "it rarely happens" really hits home. These guys just don't hang out that much. And that might be the saddest thing of all.
