During a recent media session, actor Naga Chaitanya discussed his divorce from ex-wife Samantha Ruth Prabhu for the first time. In a social media post last year, Chaitanya and Samantha announced their split. They released a joint statement about their split. Samantha had addressed rumours that she was to blame for the divorce, but Chaitanya had remained silent.
Naga Chaitanya, on the other hand, commented about his and Samantha’s divorce while promoting his forthcoming film Bangarraju. He stated that if she is happy, he is happy. He went on to say that at this time, divorce was the best option. “It is ok to be separated. That is a mutual decision made for their individual happiness. If she is happy, then I am happy. So divorce is the best decision in such a situation,” he said in Telugu.
Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya got married in October 2017. They were together for almost four years. Announcing the news of their separation, Samantha and Chaitanya said, “After much deliberation and thought 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.”
