Top South Indian actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Telugu actor Naga Chaitanya have announced that they are divorcing by mutual consent. The couple have been in love for several years before tying the knot in 2017. Speculations started on social media with several reasons cited for the split.

Samantha reacted by posting "They say I had affairs, never wanted children, that I am an opportunist, and now that I have had abortions. A divorce is an extremely painful process. Let [me be] 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.".

Ever since the split came out in the open one person who has been targeted by Naga Chaitanya fans is Sam's close friend and stylist Preetham Jukalker. Trolls accuse him of having an affair with the actress which allegedly lead to the divorce. He has even received death threats.

Preetham Jukalker has opened up for the first time "Everybody knows that I call Samantha as ‘Jiji’ which is a north Indian term for sister. How can there possibly be a link-up between us?". He has promised to stand up for himself and Samantha and face the trolls for the hurtful statements.

Jukalker however is disappointed by Naga Chaitanya's silence saying "I’ve known Chaitanya for years. He too knows the kind of relationship that Samantha and I have. I feel that he could’ve spoken up and told people not to comment like that about Sam and me. Even if he had issued one statement, it would have made a lot of difference. Right now, it’s these so-called fans who are making these statements and spreading false rumours. I think a statement from Chaitanya’s side would’ve helped keep these people in check.".

Jukalker who is one of the leading fashion designers in India is not only Samantha's stylist but also works with many other heroines including Trisha, Rakul Preeth Singh, Keerthy Suresh,Kalyani Priyadarshan and also actor Rana Daggubatti.
