Malaika demands Rs 10 cr to settle divorce with Arbaaz

Malaika Arora and Arbaaz Khan have formally filed for their divorce at the Bandra family court and have already attended their first counselling session. Now, reports have surfaced that Malaika has demanded a whopping sum of Rs 10-15 crore minimum from Arbaaz as divorce settlement.

A report in entertainment site SpotboyE quoted a source as saying, “That’s quite an amount no doubt, but Rs. 10 crore minimum is what Malaika wants. And she will not settle for anything lesser.”

The report further mentioned that Arbaaz was shocked, but has agreed to pay the amount over a period of time. The actor-filmmaker has decided to pay for the upbringing of the couple’s 14-year-old son Arhaan.

Malaika and Arbaaz are likely to obtain official divorce in May 2017, and Arhaan might continue to stay with his mother, after their divorce. “But that would again depend on a lot of things, which includes how quickly Arbaaz and Malaika come to a common point as far as terms and conditions of financial settement are concerned,” the source added.

Malaika and Arbaaz have been married for 17 long years and their separation reports surfaced earlier this year, after the model-actress went missing from the reality show ‘Power Couple’, which the duo hosted together. The couple’s family and close friends also tried their best to bring about a reconciliation between the two, but all their efforts went in vain.
