Musician-actor Himesh Reshammiya has filed for divorce from his wife Komal. The duo, who has been married for 22 long years, has taken the decision to part ways. According to some reports, Himesh and Komal have filed for divorce at the Bandra family court and are seeking legal separation. While the reason behind the divorce has not been revealed yet, reports suggest that an extramarital affair could be one of the reasons for the step taken.
Himesh, in conversation with Mid-Day, has confirmed the development. He said, “Sometimes in life, mutual respect becomes the most important and giving due respect to our relationship, Komal and I have amicably decided to part ways… There is no problem whatsoever with this decision among us and our family as every member respects it. Yet, Komal is and will always remain a part of our family and I will always be a part of her family.” According to reports, Himesh and Komal had been staying separately for the last few months.
On a similar note, Komal said, “Himesh and I completely respect each other and are jointly going ahead with this decision to part ways, but mutual respect will always be there between us as I am a part of his family and will always be, and the same stands for him towards my family.”
The couple has a son together, Swayam. While the legal custody has not been decided yet, it is being said that the two have plans to co-parent him. Rumours are rife that the separation is a result of Himesh’s alleged affair with television actor Sonia Kapoor, which was reported a few years back. However, the singer is tight-lipped on any matter about the case.
