Malaika Arora And Arbaaz Khan Are Officially Divorced
The celeb-couple were married for 18 years and have a 14-year-old son, Arhaan. While Malaika has secured custody of their son, Arbaaz will have visiting rights on his son, as per the settlement reached in the court.
The duo announced last year in March that they were separating, after months of rumours that insisted their marriage was on the rocks.
"Yes, it's true that we are separated. The truth is, we have taken a break, but that doesn't mean people can presume, assume and speculate things of such malicious nature. We are taking out time to figure out our lives. 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," according to a statement given to DNA.
Malaika Arora and Arbaaz Khan met while at work, shooting an advertisement for a coffee brand. They married in 1998, after featuring together in a music video. Over the years, Malaika has featured in films starring or made by Arbaaz, like Dabangg.
