One of the highest paid Indian actresses, Samantha Ruth Prabhu got married to Naga Chaitanya (son of superstar Nagarjuna Akkineni) in 2017. For the past few years, rumours about the couple’s crumbling relationship were doing rounds in the Internet but both the actors refused to disclose anything regarding their marriage.
The rumours started spreading just after Samantha changed her surname from Akkineni to Ruth Prabhu (her maiden name) on all social media. Some sources say that Nagarjuna tried his best to make things right between his son and daughter-in-law but eventually failed whereas some other sources stated these rumours were baseless and that the couple had bought houses in Goa and Mumbai. But now we know the truth as the celeb couple has made a shocking announcement.
The couple eventually made an official declaration on their separation. Both Samantha and Naga Chaitanya took to their Instagram to share that they are parting ways as husband and wife but will remain as friends and request the fans and media to give them privacy.
Both the Tollywood actors wrote the same post, the only difference being the name mentioned in it. The post read, “To all our well wishers. After much deliberation and thought Chay/Sam 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. Thanking you for the support.” The official announcement on the couple’s divorce has broken the hearts of ChaySam fans.
