"Varun could have avoided the question."
Divya Agarwal has revealed that her breakup with Varun Sood was “bitter”.
This comes in response to the trolls and Varun’s infidelity remark.
During a chat session on Twitter to promote his show, Varun was asked whether he had cheated on Divya.
Varun replied: “I didn’t bro.”
Divya took issue with Varun’s response and said:
“I don’t understand why a person has to respond to any personal questions when he is promoting his upcoming show.
“Varun could have avoided the question.
“It has been a year since our breakup, but people continue to ask questions and one should know how to avoid them and show dignity because I am engaged now.”
Divya has also faced accusations from Varun’s sister Akshita Sood, saying she had not returned their ancestral jewellery.
Stating that she has returned the jewellery, Divya revealed that it was a bitter breakup.
“They have been asking my manager about the gifts for many days.
“During our three-year courtship, there were many gifts and cards exchanged, one does not keep a count of all that.
“Now, even after I returned the jewellery, the phone calls to my manager haven’t stopped! I am tired of arguing over Twitter.
“From losing a parent to a bitter break-up, this has been the toughest phase of my life.
“There was a reason I decided to break up. Why are people asking about things like infidelity now?”
After announcing her engagement to businessman Apurva Padgaonkar, social media users accused Divya of being a gold digger.
Hitting back at the trolls, Divya Agarwal said:
“I have won reality shows and have been a part of three web shows… I am an independent girl.
“Also, can’t a woman want a partner who is also settled in his career? Is that being a gold digger?”
“If I was a gold digger, I would not have worked hard and built a career, I would have found a rich guy and settled down.”
On whether the controversy has affected her relationship with Apurva, Divya said:
“My relationship is one of the most stable things in my life.
“At the end of the day, when I start to discuss or explain these things to Apurva, he drops the topic and suggests we go out.
“He has been extremely patient and supportive and doesn’t want to know about this.
“I am thankful that I have him and I would want people to stop bringing up the past.”
