The year 2016 proved to be a bad omen for most relationships in tinsel town. One of the ones to have been hit badly by it were Malaika Arora and Arbaaz Khan who ended their marriage after 18 years.
Theirs was a fairy-tale romance followed by marriage, and soon the couple became parents to a baby boy. However, all was not well in their paradise. News of their marriage hitting the rocks started doing rounds way back in 2011-2012. It was rumoured that Malaika Arora was involved in an extramarital affair with actor Arjun Kapoor. Needless to say, Salman Khan was the one who supported and helped Arjun gain a foothold in Bollywood. But sources say that Salman and Bhabhi Malaika were never on talking terms. What’s strange is Arjun was also rumoured to be dating Salman’ sister Arpita Khan, who is now happily married. Whilst several efforts were made to keep the marriage intact, 2015 was the year when it was all out in the open.
Malaika reportedly moved out of the house she shared with Arbaaz and started living separately. She was even rumoured to have been dating a British businessman, but it hasn’t been confirmed. Pictures surfaced of Arbaaz socialising with a Goa-based restaurant owner and socialite Yellow. This pretty much seemed to be the final nail in the coffin. Even though the couple initially denied any trouble in their paradise, the truth finally came out in the open. There was also rumours of the couple giving them two- decade long marriage another shot, but nothing seemed to work. They turned up together for several events and social gatherings and happily posed for the shutterbugs.
They were recently spotted at the Justin Bieber concert along with their son. The very next day, we were hit with the news that Malaika and Arbaaz’s wedding has been dissolved finally. We wish the couple best wishes in their future endeavours.
