For anybody who grew up watching Drake & Josh (or watched Drake & Josh even when you were "too old" to still be watching Nickelodeon), we have some sad news for you: our two favorite TV stepbrothers are no longer thick as thieves. Drake Bell and Josh Peck have apparently grown apart since the show wrapped in 2007 – so far apart that one of them didn't even want the other at his wedding.
And our hearts can't handle the pain.
2. Josh Is Now A Husband! But Wasn't He Missing His Best Man?
On Saturday, June 17, Josh married his longtime girlfriend, Paige O'Brien. The guest list featured a handful of very notable celebs, including John Stamos, who starred alongside Peck in the sitcom Grandfathered. But which celeb was notably absent when the wedding bells chimed?
The lovebirds got married at a dreamy venue in Malibu, and the internet started freaking out over the fact that the chubby, Oprah-loving Josh from our childhoods is now a real adult. BUT the internet freaked out even more when Drake announced that he had not received an invitation to his (TV) stepbro's wedding.
The same day that Josh said "I do" to his beautiful bride, Drake took to Twitter to share his heartbreak with the world, leaving us all heartbroken too. I mean, how can you read, "I'll miss you brotha," and not be crushed with sadness?
Drake deleted the tweets quickly, but not before people grabbed screenshots, of course.
5. It's Like Our Favorite Celebrity Couple Just Broke Up
Interestingly enough, both Drake and Josh had posted this throwback photo recently. Josh posted it on June 1 and Drake posted it on June 16, just one day before Josh's wedding. Drake's caption for the #tb photo? "Studs!!"
Some fans even got a bit aggressive and judgmental in comments on Josh's social media posts. But here's what we need to remember, people – it takes TWO people to maintain a friendship. So it can't ALL be Josh's fault.
9. But Let's Be Honest, We Know Who's Really To Blame...
Did this news get you down? Same. So let's forget about the fact that Drake and Josh are no longer friends (SOB) for a moment, and instead let's focus on some of the funniest moments from our favorite Nick show ever.
We could all use a chuckle, right?
11. The One Evil Force That Bound These Brothers: MEGAN
Drake & Josh was a Nickelodeon show that ran from January, 2004 to September, 2007. If you were lucky enough to become a fan of the show during any of its four seasons, you know just how dynamic this on-screen duo was... which is why it's so heartbreaking to see how time has driven a wedge between the former brothers.
13. Looking Back, I Guess Drake Wasn't The Nicest Brother
Let's agree to remember Drake and Josh like this – as best bros who loved each other. The reality of their current friendship is far too difficult to swallow right now. In our minds, they'll always be brothers.
