Arbaaz Khan – Malaika Arora Khan confirm their split in a joint statement

Arbaaz-Khan-and-Malaika-Arora-KhanFew weeks ago, the nation was sent in a tizzy when the rumours of one of Bollywood’s most stable couple, Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora Khan, ending their 18-year long marriage came our way. Ever since, a new rumour, a new speculation around why the duo is calling it quits has been popping out of thin air.

From Malaika’s alleged affair to a businessman to the Khan families’ disapproval of Malaika’s lifestyle, a lot many reasons were being cited to have caused trouble in the Arbaaz-Malaika paradise. However, after weeks of silence, the two have finally come out in the open and spoken about the issue in a joint statement to DNA.

In the statement, the duo has confirmed that they have parted ways and are on a break as of now. “Yes, it’s true that we are separated,” they added in the same report. A divorce, however, seems far-fetched.

While they have admitted to a separation, the couple outright rubbished all rumours hinting at the involvement of any “random third person” or either family being the reason behind their decision of taking a break. According to them, all sources claiming to be their friends are allegedly spreading malice which is hurtful to the couple as well as their families.

The couple further alleges that every report surrounding their separation that has come out is completely baseless and that their silence has been mistaken to be a weakness on their part.

The two then urged in the statement that they would appreciate if people give them their space and have requested media to not believe whatever their “said source” says. The duo finished off saying that they hold immense regard for each other and will do whatever is best for them, their child and their families.
