Samantha on Friday broke her silence on separation from her husband Naga Chaitanya, and rubbished rumours that have being doing the rounds. In an emotional post, she said divorce is an ‘extremely painful process’. Adding that the personal attacks on her have been relentless, she slammed speculations of affairs and abortions that have been circulated as reasons behind their split.
“Your emotional investment into a personal crisis has overwhelmed me. Thank you all for showing deep empathy, concern and for defending me against false rumours and stories that are being spread. They say I had affairs, never wanted children, that I am an opportunist and now that I have had abortions. A divorce in itself is an extremely painful process. Let alone allowing me the time to heal. This attack on me personally, has been relentless. But I promise you this, I will never allow this or anything else they say, break me,” Samantha said
Samantha and Naga Chaitanya announced their separation a week ago. Samantha and Chaitanya shared identical notes on their social media announcing the split. “To all our well wishers. After much deliberation and thought Chay and I have decided to part ways as husband and wife to pursue our own paths. We are fortunate to have a friendship of over a decade that was the very core of our relationship which we believe will always hold a special bond between us. We request our fans, well wishers and the media to support us during this difficult time and give us the privacy we need to move on. Thank you for your support,” her statement read.
Samantha and Chaitanya tied the knot in 2017. Rumours of a divorce had started doing the rounds after Samantha changed her name on social media platforms.
