Here’s the post of the actress :
Samantha turned her comments off for her Instagram post whereas Naga Chaithanya decided to uploaded it in his official twitter handle.
It all started when the actress changed her social media handle names from “Samantha Akkineni” to “S”. Media started creating theories saying that the actress is demanding Rs. 250 crore as alimony for the divorce. The actress who blasted at a reporter who asked about the same to her when she visited Thirumala temple, had kept mum whenever such questions popped up in front of her.
Recently, during the question and answer session with her followers, Samantha said that there hundreds of rumours are emerging about her and brushed them off saying that none of it are true. When a fan asked “Are you really shifting to Mumbai ?”, Samantha answered to him/her saying “I really don’t know where these rumours started from but just like hundred other rumours, this is also not true” through a video.
Samantha got married to Naga Chaithanya in Goa as per traditional Hindu customs on 6 October 2017 and then by Christian customs on 7 October 2017, and became a member of the Akkineni family. Now, after nearly four years, the couple had officially announced about their seperation.
