Shortly after the actors officially declared their separation, once again rumours started circulating stating that Samantha had an affair with her stylist and even went through an abortion recently. During these testing times, the actress had no choice but to react to the gossips regarding her and Naga Chaitanya’s painful separation. Both Samantha Ruth Prabhu and her husband had made it clear that the separation was a mutual decision as they felt that they weren’t really meant to be with each other. They also revealed that they would continue being friends even after the divorce. But some people seem to be more interested in adding some spice to the story and are thus spreading rumours that have little credibility.
Her recent quote – “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” make many of us realize that we are not using our imagination to consider a situation from a multitude of viewpoints. The rumours were too ugly to be completely ignored and thus, Samantha was bound to criticize people’s lack of empathy with her. She is already having a hard time coping with the situation and all ugly rumours do is make it worse for her to deal with the current situation. Regarding rumours about her having an affair and an abortion, Samantha wrote, “They say I had affair, never wanted children, that I am an opportunist and now that I have had abortions. Divorce itself is a painful thing let alone the healing time. This attack on me personally has been relentless. But I’m promising you, this or any attack will not break me.”
All her posts make it evident that the actress is currently too depressed and people spreading rumours are making it harder for her to recover. Also, it is a sad reflection of human behaviour where people think that it is free for all to judge people and assuming things about their personal life and relationships just because the ones being victimised are popular. A divorce is as painful to a celebrity as it is to any of us and thus giving them proper space and time to recover is probably the best decision to be taken in such times.
