"I am just feeling guilty that I broke someone's heart"
Divya Agarwal has revealed the real reason for her breakup with Varun Sood.
The Bigg Boss OTT winner shocked fans when she announced her engagement to businessman Apurva Padgaonkar in December 2022.
Some fans were not happy with Divya’s engagement announcement as it came just nine months after breaking up with Varun Sood.
This led some people to label Divya a gold digger.
Divya previously stated that her split from Varun was a bitter one but she has now revealed why they broke up, admitting she felt guilty afterwards.
Appearing on Amrita Rao and RJ Anmol’s podcast with Apurva, Divya revealed that she ended things with Varun because of her “complex emotions”.
She explained: “With Varun, I felt all over the place. With Apurva, I would feel calm and mature. I made Varun meet Apurva. I told him clearly that I had a problem. I had a confusion.
“Whatever has happened is very wrong and it has happened because of me.
“I need to put a stop somewhere. And that’s why it was an abrupt break-up. I just got the car to a screeching halt.
“This thought would always come to my mind that if I was to get married to my now ex (Varun) would I want to invite Apurva and if I invite him, would I be okay seeing him on that side?
“Apurva has been the most important person in my life. I had so many complex emotions in my head.”
Elaborating on the breakup, Divya said:
“After the breakup, he (Apurva) told me, ‘Don’t spoil your mood’.
“I said, ‘No, my mood isn’t off. I am just feeling guilty that I broke someone’s heart because of my complex emotions. I’m not in a good space’.
“He’s like, ‘Listen, you have done well for that guy because if you had pulled it, he didn’t know anything, it would have been a bigger mess’.”
After breaking up with Varun, Divya went to Goa with Apurva.
She said: “We had never travelled overnight before together. He took me to Goa and I wasn’t aware, he took me to his Kuldevi temple.
“He told me, ‘Don’t ask for anything, don’t think anything. Just sit in silence’.
“He reminded me of my father because he would take me to all the spiritual places.”
Divya Agarwal also admitted that her relationship with Varun looked happy on social media but in reality, she was unhappy.
“What I went through, whoever would have been with me would have lost it.
“Everything was public, the relationship and the breakup. And when he came, the situation became worse.”
“During the relationship, everything was all happy on social media, but inside I was not happy.
“On the other hand, with Apurva I hardly put any pictures with him but I am very happy. We have never argued.
“Even his family never questioned or judged me. They would always support me saying, ‘Don’t pay attention to the media, you two stay together’. Apurva knows my heart so well.”
