Actor Divya Khossla Kumar sparked divorce rumours after she dropped her husband Bhushan Kumar's surname from her Instagram bio. She was also seen adding an extra 's' to her maiden surname. This change in name on Instagram led to netizens speculating trouble in paradise. 


T-series head Bhushan Kumar and actress-filmmaker Diya Khossla got married on February 13, 2005 at the  Maa Vaishno Devi shrine in Katra. They were blessed with their first child, a son, in October 2011. 


Meanwhile, after Divya dropped her husband's surname from social media, netizens also observed that she stopped following the official handle of his company T-Series. The couple not making appearances together in recent times also did not go unnoticed by curiious netizens. However, it turns out that the couple is not headed for a divorce.


Accoridng to a report in Zoom, a spokesperson from T-Series clarified that the couple is not getting divorced. Revealing the reason behind the name change, the spokesperson said, "Divya Khossla's choice to drop her married surname, driven by astrological belief, is a personal decision and should be respected. The addition of an 's' to her maiden surname, symbolising her astrological belief, is for the same thought". 

So, it turns out that Divya making changes to her name has to do with 'astrological reasons' and not indicative of trouble in paradise.
