"He will always be my best friend."
Divya Agarwal has broken up with her long-term boyfriend Varun Sood.
The Bigg Boss OTT winner took to Instagram and posted a lengthy note.
The post also included a monochrome picture of herself.
An Instagram Story also suggested that they ended their relationship on good terms.
Divya wrote: “Thank you Varun for everything. Will always be good friends.”
Her lengthy post read: “Life is such a circus!
“Try and keep everyone happy, expect nothing that’s true but what happens when the self-love starts declining?
“No, I don’t blame anyone for anything that’s happening to me… I feel worked up .. and that’s okay… I want to breathe and live for myself… That’s okay!
“I hereby formally declare that I’m on my own in this life and would like to take my time to live the way I want to.
“No, it’s not always necessary to have big statements, excuses and reasons for a decision.
“It’s just my choice to step out of it. I really value and love all the happy moments I spent with him.
“He’s a great guy! He will always be my best friend. Please respect my decision.”
Varun Sood and Divya Agarwal had been in a relationship since 2018.
The pair appeared together on the MTV reality TV shows Ace Of Space and Splitsvilla.
During her time on Bigg Boss OTT, Divya often spoke about Varun and even revealed that they were planning to get married.
While it is not known why they broke up, some social media users claimed it was due to Varun having an affair with Madhurima Roy.
One netizen had shared a video of Varun at a restaurant.
The user claimed Madhurima was the person who originally shared the video on her Instagram Story and wrote: “A love affair.”

The video went viral and many accused Varun of having an affair, blaming him for the breakup.
The video attracted Divya’s attention and she hit back, dismissing speculation that the breakup was caused by an affair.
She said: “Dare anyone say anything about Varun’s character… not every separation happens because of character! He is an honest man!
“It’s my decision to be alone no one has the right to speak anything rubbish!”
“It takes a lot of strength to take decisions like these in life! Respect.”
Divya went on to send a message to Madhurima, writing:
“Madhurima Roy. You are a sweetheart. Don’t you worry. Love you.”
Madhurima shared Divya’s post and wrote:
“To the ones spewing distasteful hate messages all over my profile, you guys really hit an all-time low! Varun and you are dearests despite anything! Peace out man.”
