Soon after that, Priyanka's mother Madhu Chopra had slammed Wendell as she had tweeted, "Wendel Rodricks afraid to admit he was body shaming Priyanka. Such a fake! He covers his legs cos he has varicose veins. Will he cover his face with hijab when he wrinkles up????"

Now, speaking to a website (via), Priyanka's mother Madhu condoled Wendell's death and said they hold no grudges against him for what he said about Priyanka wearing her Grammys 2020 outfit. Madhu said, "We have lost a great, talented man. I couldn't believe yesterday evening that Wendell is no more. He had just brought in two puppies to his house to shelter them. He was an ardent dog-lover. Life is so unpredictable."

Madhu further said, "We hold no grudges against Wendell. Disagreements happen and one shouldn't keep it forever. Wendell was a nice guy. Priyanka worked with him in Fashion."
