Bollywood actor and producer Arbaaz Khan and wife Malaika Arora Khan have finally ended their 18-year relationship. The couple divorced in a Bandra family court on Thursday.
Earlier they had filed for divorce in November 2016 by mutual consent.
They were often seen together at the court and arrived in the same car today as well. They had even gone to watch Justin Bieber’s concert together on Wednesday, accompanied by their son Arhaan, where they were seen sharing cordial terms with each other.
Malaika and Arbaaz will continue to co-parent their 14-year old son. While Malaika has been given his custody, Arbaaz is free to visit him whenever he wants to.
Slamming down all rumours surrounding their divorce, the couple issued a joint statement that said, “We are not separated because of a third random person, like there were stories of a friendship between a businessman and Malaika. Nor was it about his family disapproving of her lifestyle, nor does she feel that her husband is not financially stable. She is not crying on her brother-in-law Salman’s shoulders, asking him to help. They are our family, so please don’t talk about them like that”.
The couple has always tried to maintain privacy in their family and personal matters and have also requested the media to do so.
