Hot couple of Bollywood, Arbaaz Khan, and Malaika Arora Khan have officially parted ways. The former couple was spotted in Mumbai attending the Justin Bieber Concert and just one day after their appearance; an Asian News International(ANI) report confirms that the couple has been granted a divorce.
The Bandra Family Court has given the estranged couple a divorce, and their lawyers even confirmed to Mid-day. Malaika Arora and Arbaaz Khan first met when they were shooting for an advertisement for a coffee brand together. They tied the knot in 1998.
The couple was married for 18 years. They have a 14-year-old son, Arhaan Khan. Malaika is given custody of their son whereas Arbaaz has visitation rights.
Just to jog your memory a little, Malaika Arora, 43, and Arbaaz Khan, 49, declared that they were separating last year and they later went on to filing a for divorce by mutual consent. There were consistent rumors of trouble in their paradise. All these rumors were put to rest when they put out a joint statement in media that read:
“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.”
The former couple filed for divorce in November 2016. Even though they live separately, their duties as parents never took a backseat. Malaika is always present during family functions.
Now, the couple has gracefully moved on in their lives. Arbaaz even declared that he has been dating someone while Malaika, on the other hand, has kept her private life under wraps.
