South actor Samantha Ruth Prabhu has responded to "false rumours and stories" that are being spread in the media against her following her separation from Naga Chaitanya.
After four years of marriage, the couple announced their separation last week with an identical post.
"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," the couple had said.
In a statement on Friday, Samantha responded to the false rumours about her, saying, a divorce is "an extremely painful process" anyway but the "relentless personal attacks" have made it more difficult.
"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," the 34-year-old wrote.
Hours before issuing the statement, the actor had share a quote on how actions of men and women are seen through a different lens by society.
“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. – Farida D," she shared.
