Delhi Court: A Delhi court awarded a divorce to singer-rapper Honey Singh and his wife Shalini Talwar on Tuesday, following nearly thirteen years of matrimony. After nearly two and a half years of litigation, the second motion filed in the case was granted approval by the Principal Judge of the Family Court, Paramjit Singh. In accordance with the Hindu Marriage Act, a subsequent motion to divorce is lodged between six and eighteen months subsequent to the initial petition. This period functions as an interregnum, providing the involved parties with an opportunity to reflect on their choice to initiate divorce proceedings.
Shalini Talwar and Honey Singh exchanged vows in January 2011. In September 2022, following eleven years of matrimony, they filed jointly for divorce under Section 13B of the Hindu Marriage Act. In granting their petition, the court mandated a six-month interregnum to facilitate introspection prior to the conclusion of the divorce proceedings.
In his representation of Honey, attorney Ishan Mukherjee informed the Hindustan Times, “The divorce decree has been issued following the grant of the second motion.” However, he declined to provide any additional commentary on the subject, asserting that it pertains to a personal matrimonial matter. Talwar’s counsel, Advocate Vivek Singh, declined to comment on the matter, citing it as a matrimonial concern.
For the unaware, Shalini Talwar had levied domestic violence allegations against the singer. She maintained a constant state of dread, claiming to have been subjected to mental, physical, emotional, sexual, and economic torture at the hands of Singh and his family. After the divorce was granted by the court and a settlement was reached between the parties, the allegations were subsequently recanted.
In December 2022, Yo Yo Honey Singh confirmed his relationship with Tina Thadani at an event. They became acquainted via acquaintances in Dubai. Honey Singh’s new single “Paris Ka Trip” features the Canadian actress and filmmaker Tina, who resides in Mumbai. In her directorial debut, ‘The Leftovers,’ she shed light on the tribulations endured by the lower-income demographic residing in the colonies of Mumbai.
