Samantha Ruth Prabhu's personal life has been the subject of speculation since she announced her split from Naga Chaitanya. Many YouTube channels attempted to delve into the reasons behind the couple's divorce, but only a few went too far. The actor has now filed defamation proceedings against some stations "for airing poisonous content about her," according to an IANS report.

Samantha would issue legal letters to Suman TV, Telugu Popular TV, and a few other YouTube channels for defaming her image on their channels, according to the source.

Samantha has also filed a legal notice against an attorney named Venkat Rao, who allegedly commented about her married life and rumored indiscretions, according to the same newspaper.

Samantha had already refuted all of the allegations leveled against her. "Your emotional investment in a personal situation has overwhelmed me," she wrote on Twitter. Thank you all for your great empathy, concern, and for standing up for me in the face of false rumors and stories. They accuse me of having affairs, never wanting children, being an opportunist, and now having abortions. Divorce is a traumatic experience in and of itself. Let alone give me the opportunity to heal. This personal attack on me has been relentless. But I guarantee you, this, or whatever else they say, will never break me."

Samantha and Naga Chaitanya announced their split last month. "To all our well-wishers," the two said in a note shared on social media. Chaitanya and I have chosen to separate as husband and wife to pursue our individual paths after much deliberation and thought. We were lucky to have a friendship that lasted over a decade and was at the heart of our relationship, and we feel it will always hold a special place in our hearts. We ask that our supporters, well-wishers, and the media stand with us at this trying time and give us the privacy we require to move forward. Thank you so much for your help."
