Malaika Arora and Arbaaz Khan have finally ended their 18-year marriage. The legal proceedings are all over, and the Bandra family court today granted Malaika and Arbaaz a divorce.
Malaika and Arbaaz will continue to co-parent their son. While Malaika has been given his custody, Arbaaz is free to visit him whenever he wishes.
The couple, who married in 1998, had filed for divorce on mutual consent last November(2016). Where many expected the couple might reconcile over time considering they even attended the Justin Bieber concert together with their son Arhaan last night. However, they are maintaining this cordial relationship only so that their divorce doesn’t affect their relationship with their son.
The couple’s lawyers, advocates Kranti Sathe and Amrita Sathe Pathak told HT that Malaika had not sought any alimony from Arbaaz Khan.
On the other hand, Malaika Arora Khan has been constantly linked up with Arjun Kapoor. The duo were spotted constantly with each other but the actress always refuted the rumors.
