Malaika Arora and Arbaaz Khan have been granted divorce by the Bandra family court, Mumbai on Thursday. Both had filed for divorce on mutual consent in November last year. Malaika and Arbaaz had tied the knot in the year 1998 and their 18 years of marriage has finally come to an end. Malaika will have the custody of their 14-year-old son Arhaan while Arbaaz can visit his son whenever he wants.
On Wednesday, both Malaika and Arbaaz were seen together at the Justin Bieber concert that was held at DY Patil Stadium, along with their son (Arhaan)
From the last 2 years, the couple’s relationship has been through several twists. The cracks between Arbaaz and Malaika came to the fore in early 2016 after which everyone in the Khan family, including Salman Khan tried to mediate and help the couple reconcile. However, they have officially applied for divorce. Several reports that surfaced last year suggested that the actress had asked for a sum of Rs 10 crore from Arbaaz as divorce settlement.
Though, the couple had continued to be seen together in public along with their son (Arhaan) and Malaika’s family on important occasions. They were often seen at dinners and parties looking at ease in each other’s company.
