Telugu actor Naga Chaitanya talks about his divorce with Samantha Ruth Prabhu and the impact of his dating rumors on his relationship with ex-wife Samantha Ruth Prabhu. The Custody actor was married to the Kushi star for almost four years before announcing their separation in 2021. While Chaitanya and Samantha were tight-lipped about the reason behind their split, the actor confirmed that the divorce came last year and that they’ve been legally single for a year now.
Speaking to Times of India, Naga Chaitanya said that he and Samantha have moved on in their lives. Praising Samantha, Chaitanya said, “She is a very sweet person and deserves all the happiness. It’s only when the media speculates that things get awkward between us. In the public eye, that mutual respect is taken away. That’s what I feel bad about. and what do you do wrong? They bring in a third party, someone not connected to my part, to extract headlines from him. It is very disrespectful to third parties that they are unnecessarily linking my past.”
Chaitanya is probably referring to his rumored relationship with Sobhita Dhulipala. Their dating rumors started last year but the actors haven’t addressed the claims. They recently came into limelight when they were spotted on a date in London.
As per a recent report in Hyderabad Times, Chaitanya and Sobhita have been dating for “at least six months now”. “As they spent more time together, their friendship blossomed into love. They are very comfortable in each other’s company but don’t want to make anything official right now. Right now, they are enjoying getting to know each other better,” a source had earlier said.
He will soon be seen in custody on the work front.
