Malaika-Arbaaz issue joint statement on their divorce


Malaika Arora and Arbaaz Khan who are headed for a divorce have issued a joint statement confirming their separation. There have been several reports speculating the reason behind the couple calling off their 17-year-long marriage.

While some reports suggested Azbaaz’s financial instability, others suggested a third person was responsible for the break-up of the ‘power couple’. Malaika and Arbaaz have decided to put a stop to all these rumours in a joint statement exclusively to DNA.

“We are taking out time to figure out our lives... Yes, it’s true that we are separated, but where our lives go and what transpires between us, it is for us to decide. Wherever it goes from here, we will talk about it when we are ready to,” the couple said in the statement.

 “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,” the statement read.
