For years, believed to be the strongest going couple in Bollywood, Malaika Arora Khan has reportedly decided to split up from Arbaaz Khan, her Husband of 18 years. Malaika's brother-in-law Salman Khan tried to patch up things between the couple however it seems Malaika has refused to budge from her stand.
The rumor has been rife since the two started filming the popular show “Power Couple” together but Malaika ended up shooting only for first three weeks. The speculation around the relationship increased when both started to arrive on sets in separate cars. It is also been reported that Malaika moved out of their Bandra flat three months ago and is living with her son in a separate apartment.
For a long time, Malaika Arora Khan and Arbaaz Khan have dodged the divorce rumours. There were even reports of Arbaaz Khan confirming that the two are very much in love and that he is possessive about the actress. Arbaaz even took to social media and denied the rumours of his breakup in an attempt to salvage the marriage. During a TV show YaarMera Superstar, Arbaaz said, "I love Malaika but I'm possessive about her. It wasn't like this when she was younger or I was new into the relationship. She is precious to me. I'm afraid of losing her now".
Malaika is believed to have informed Salman and family that she has been single-handedly providing for their son, Arhaan financially paying his exorbitant school tuition fees and other expenses.
When asked about the divorce issue Arbaaz’s father Salim Khan has decided not to intervene in the matter. “I am a writer... don't ask me about anyone's love affair or break-up reports. I never interfere in the life of my kids. I don't want to talk about it," Salim said.
However, still no official statement has come from the actress or the actor.
