FINALLY DIVORCED: Arbaaz Khan, Malaika Arora end 18-year-old marriage

Well, another real Bollywood marriage has gone kaput. We are talking about the most stylish couple Malaika Arora and Arbaaz Khan. Finally, Bandra family court has granted divorce to the estranged couple. Around 12 in the noon, both Arbaaz and Malaika arrived in the car same and signed the divorce paper.

Malaika and Arbaaz announced separation in March, 2016 and in November they have filed for divorce. As per the rules, the six months time which the court usually gives to every estranged couple to reconsider their decision is over today and failing to save their marriage, the couple was granted divorce.

In November 2016, they have filed for divorce on mutual consent.

Got married in 1997, the couple has a 14 years old son, Arhaan.  Over these months, they attended the counselling sessions.

It is not yet clear what caused the crack in their marriage but Arbaaz Khan’s unstable financial condition and Malaika’s close proximity with actor Arjun Kapoor are touted to be the reason of their separation.

Their differences first came into forefront when they hosted the reality show, ‘Power Couple’ together. They hosted the show jointly but in mid-way, Malaika left the show and Arbaaz concluded the season solo.

The Khan and Arora families had several meeting to reconcile them but they finally gave up. Malaika and Arbaaz decided not to get back together again. Salman Khan also tried his level best to save his younger brother’s marriage but he too failed.

Though separated, Malaika and Arbaaz were spotted together in various occasions. If Arbaaz attended Malaika’s parents’ birthday then the latter also took part in every family function of the Khans. Last night, the couple was spotted at Justin Bieber’s concert with their son, Arhaan.

They couple were married for the past 18 years.
