Divorced couple Hrithik, Suzanne to share children’s custody

Hrithik Roshan and his wife of 14 years Suzanne Khan legally divorced on November 1st and their lawyers said that they had a very decent divorce with no terms and condition laid on pen and paper and no alimony was involved. Both being responsible parents of two children, Hrehaan and Hridhaan, the estranged couple Hrithik Roshan and Suzanne Khan will share the custody of children.

Suzanne said after the separation, “We are two individuals who respect and care for each other and have made our own individual choices. We are parents to two wonderful children and our responsibility remains to protect and take care of them.”

The couple came out of the strong bond of marriage on mutual consent. Suzanne Khan’s lawyer Mrinalini Deshmukh confirmed that the divorce was through mutual consent. “The divorce is done. The matter is over. Everything was decided between the two parties in a fair and amicable manner. That is it,” said Deshmukh.

As per the divorce petition, both Suzanne and Hrithik will jointly have the legal custody of the children but the primary custody of the two children shall be with the mother. “The physical and primary custody of the two children shall be with Sussane Khan,” the petition read.

In the divorce petition, the estranged couple maintained “irreconcilable differences” as the basis of their split and “due to temperamental differences, it became impossible for them to live together”.

“The petitioners state that thereafter innumerable efforts have been made by them and their family and friends to sort out their differences, however, the same proved futile,” the petition further stated.

Hrithik’s advocate and Solicitor Dipesh Mehta said, “Hrithik had been occupied with the matter. He has been quite upset about it, right from the beginning,” Mehta said.

It was also rumoured that Suzanne demanded 400 crore alimony but the divorce is said to have settled on 380 crore alimony but there has been no confirmation on the report.

Roshan issued a statement in December about his separation, “This is my greatest tribute to love. Sussane is and always will be the love of my life for the rest of my life. If her smiles are brighter without me, my love for her must accomplish that,” Hrithik had written on his Facebook page.
