Samantha Ruth Prabhu stated she expected to ‘crumble’ after her divorce from Naga Chaitanya. She went on to say that she had no idea how strong she is.
Samantha Ruth Prabhu has spoken out about her split with Naga Chaitanya, revealing that she initially felt she’d ‘crumble and die.’ Samantha also stated in a new interview that she is very very proud of her strength. In October, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya announced their split. The two published messages on their individual social media pages. It said in part: “After much deliberation and thought, (we) have decided to part ways as husband and wife to pursue our own paths.”
She said in an interview that, “It’s ok if you are having a bad day, vocalise it, understand it, as soon as you accept that you’re going through something half the work is done. It’s when we don’t want to accept it and we are fighting it that it’s a never-ending battle. But when you accept when you vocalise ‘this is my issue, so what now? I still have to live my life’. I know I’m still going to live my life and with all the issues that I now face in my personal life, I was surprised at how strong I was. I thought I was a much weaker person. I thought that with my separation, I would crumble and die. I didn’t think I was capable of being this strong…Today I’m very very proud of how strong I’m because I really didn’t know I was.”
Samantha and Chaitanya’s nearly four-year marriage came to an end on October 2. One combined statement said, “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 your support,”
