With relentless celebrity break-ups through the year, the hope of reconciliation rumors being true between Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora Khan has come to end with the report that they have finally filed the divorce.
According to a report in Mid-Day, the couple visited a family court with their lawyers last week. According to the Mid-Day report, they’ve filed for divorce by mutual consent and will have to appear in court for the mandatory counseling sessions.
It is to be noted that the Khan couple issued a joint statement in March announcing their separation while also calling for privacy.
“Yes, it’s true that we are separated. The truth is, we have taken a break, but that doesn’t mean people can presume, assume and speculate things of such malicious nature. We are taking out time to figure out our lives. We have maintained a dignified silence till now but it is causing us too much confusion and is disturbing for our families. To put all of the speculation to rest, we are giving out this statement. People claiming to be our friends and sources have been speaking on our behalf giving out wrong, malicious information. They have maligned us for long and we have kept quiet and not said a word as it’s a personal matter between us. We have got a child and our families are involved, but just because we have not said anything till now, it doesn’t give anybody the license to speculate on any rubbish about us,” read their statement published in DNA.
However, the fan and rumor mill speculated that they are trying to re-conciliate the differences as they were spotted together on several occasions including Eid and just a week earlier they celebrated their son Arhaan’s birthday.
Malaika Arora married Arbaaz Khan in 1998 and the couple have a son, Arhaan.
In Bollywood career, MalaikaArora Khan has appeared in several films, like Dabangg, made by her husband and brother-in-law Salman Khan. They were last seen together on television show Power Couple, which they co-hosted for a while.
