Recently, Josh was on the podcast of Dave Portnoy and Josh Richards called BFFs on 16 March 2022. The hosts wanted to know whether Josh, 35 is still on amicable terms with Drake, 35. Josh replied:

“The dirty little secret … was that Drake and I didn’t stay in touch for the ten years since we made the show,”

“But no one needed to know that.”

“I was happy to just die with that secret that like, we made this thing that people really love, but maybe we weren’t that close. So I didn’t invite him to my wedding because I hadn’t really [been] talking to him in many, many years,”

The wedding drama

In 2017, Josh wed Paige O’ Brien. But he did not invite Drake for it. The latter felt hurt and in anguish had tweeted on the day of wedding:

“When you’re not invited to the wedding the message is clear…”

Additionally, he also tweeted,

“Loyalty is key. ALWAYS remember where you came from.”

Soon after, he deleted both tweets. Josh explained on that topic:

“I’m getting married that night, and I see these text messages from him, like cursing me out, coming for me,”

“On the night of my wedding… I don’t care about me, it’s, whatever, I signed up to be a public person. It is what it is. But here’s my wife, who’s like, getting torn down on the Internet, and I’m like, she’s private, and she just got married.”

More drama 6 months after Josh’s wedding

Things did not end here. Six months after the wedding of Josh, Drake uploaded a photo of him hugging Josh at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards. Josh had revealed that that hug came after a confrontation. He revealed about it:

“I remember we were at the MTV Video Music Awards and I see him there, and he sees me. I go up to him, and this might be the most Sopranos thing I have ever done, I looked at him, and I go, ‘Go apologize to my wife right now.’ “And he goes, ‘OK’ and he like, made a beeline for my wife and I see him do like, this whole five-minute performance of an apology and I was like, ‘Go apologize to my wife or something bad’s gonna happen.’”

But Drake’s wife, Janet Von Schmeling had some contradictory revelation. She had said on her Instagram Story:

“Josh Peck is a total piece of sh*t,”

“I stay quiet until lies happen. And…the fact that I was there at the VMAs, I was next to Drake. I was the one who told him Josh was coming up with the camera. I was there, heard it all. Drake was never threatened by Josh…. that’s actually hilarious. Bro, you’re not tough.”

And she added:

“Also, yea, Drake apologized to your wife because you asked him nicely to,”

“We actually hung out after that. Multiple times. We talked multiple times since then. You’re a f*cking liar. A f*cking liar, Josh.”
