Actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu has issued a statement addressing rumours claiming she has had affairs, or never wanted children, or has had abortions. The rumours come close at the heels of her separation announcement from husband Naga Chaitanya. Taking to her Instagram Stories, Samantha said these are personal attacks and she is not going to let them break her.
She said, “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,” she said.
“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,” she added.
Samantha and Chaitanya issued similar statements last week to inform fans about her separation. They were married for almost four years. However, rumours about their separation began earlier this year after Samantha changed her name to just ‘S’ on her social media handles. After she announced the separation, she changed the name back to just Samantha.
