Drake wasn’t invited to Josh’s wedding and 90s kids are heartbroken

Is nothing sacred?

How did it come to this?

If you were lucky enough to have grown up during the golden age of Nickelodeon, you may want to sit down because one of the network’s favourite double acts has turned sour.

Drake & Josh made for incredible viewing between the years of 2004 and 2007, with a seamless spin-off from The Amanda Show resulting in some fantastic comedy for kids and young teens.

Drake, played by Drake Bell, was a cool musician type who couldn’t be more different from his awkward stepbrother Josh, played by Josh Peck.

The chemistry between the two actors was clear for all to see and the show became an instant success, even when Josh started losing all that weight and began acting a bit too cool to take seriously as “the clumsy guy.”

It’s been a decade since the final episode of Drake & Josh aired but we always assumed that the two guys remained tight, forever tied together by the 57 glorious episodes in which they starred.

But we were wrong.

Josh got married last weekend to long-time girlfriend Paige O’Brien in a gorgeous ceremony in Malibu, California.

But his former co-star did not receive an invitation to attend, according to Drake’s Twitter.

“When you’re not invited to the wedding the message is clear,” Bell wrote in a pair of tweets that have since been deleted.

“True colours have come out today. Message is loud and clear. Ties are officially cut. I’ll miss you brotha.”

Fans of the show were left heartbroken after learning that their earliest memory of what we now know as “a bromance” has been shattered into smithereens.

It remains unknown whether or not Crazy Steve was in attendance.
