It looks like “Drake & Josh” co-stars Drake Bell and Josh Peck haven’t split up just yet — though Bell still would have liked to be invited to Peck’s wedding.
“There are no hard feelings,” Bell clarified to People magazine this week, after a Twitter outburst in June that suggested the pair were done for good.
Peck got married to his longtime girlfriend Paige O’Brien on June 18, and while his “Grandfathered” co-star John Stamos was in attendance at the Malibu ceremony, his longtime bestie was conspicuously absent.
Peck and Bell starred in “Drake & Josh” for four seasons in the early 2000s and seemed to have remained close over the years, so Bell’s absence came as a surprise for many — including Bell himself.
Bell vented his feelings in a series of tweets that he later deleted, but not before fans picked up on the beef between the two stars. “When you’re not invited to the wedding the message is clear… True colors have come out today. Message is loud and clear. Ties are officially cut. I’ll miss you brotha.”
Now it looks like the friends are patching things up, as Bell explained to People. “He’s been my best friend for 18 years. In all honesty, we talk all the time, we’ve been talking. I was just expecting…”
He said that he was surprised that his angry tweets went viral: “I didn’t think it would be that big of a deal.”
He also had a problem with how some of his fans went after Peck. “That’s my bro, you know. It’s kind of one of those things where you’re fighting him on the playground, but if someone else says something, you’re like — ‘Hey, I can say that but you can’t!'”
Bell said he would certainly be open to collaborating with Peck again. “I would love to [do a reunion]. If it’s done in the right way. I don’t know if a reunion of us doing same characters as in ‘Drake & Josh,’ or different ones like in ‘Pineapple Express.’ But it would definitely be fun.”
