October 08, 2021: Samantha took to Instagram stories to react to the rumours surrounding her split with Naga Chaitanya. She said that the personal attack on her has been relentless but added that nothing can break her. Ever since she announced her separation from Naga Chaitanya, rumours about how she has had affairs outside of marriage and abortions have been all over the news.
Samantha and Naga Chaitanya have parted ways as wife and husband. On October 2, the couple took to social media to announce the same. Ever since the announcement was made, a lot has been said about what led to their decision to part ways.
Taking to Instagram stories, Samantha said that the personal attack on her is relentless. She also spoke about people accusing her of having affairs outside of marriage and abortions. Some even claimed that Samantha never wanted a child, which was one of the reasons that led to the divorce.
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 SENDS A STRONG MESSAGE TO TROLLS
Earlier today (October 8), Samantha took to Instagram stories to share a quote written by Dr Farida. The quote talks about how women are questioned and criticised for the decisions they take, while men are treated differently. It also sheds light on the double standards in our society.
The quote by Farida reads, "If matters are constantly morally questionable when done by women, but not even morally questioned when done by men - then we, as a society, fundamentally have no morals (sic)."
A few days ahead of their wedding anniversary, Samantha and Naga Chaitanya announced that they are separated. Reportedly, Samantha refused to receive alimony of Rs 200 crore from Naga Chaitanya and her family. Their divorce came as a huge shock to fans.
