Director-turned-talk show host Karan Johar took to social networking site Twitter to defend former model and lifestyle coach Rhea Pillai. Ace tennis player Leander Paes, who has been in a live-in-relationship with Rhea for a while now, recently filed a petition at a family court in suburban Bandra seeking custody of their eight-year-old daughter.

The petition accuses Rhea of being an irresponsible parent, not caring for the child, being self-indulgent and having a volatile temper. The complaint also alleges that Rhea has cheated on Leander Paes with a young cricketer. Paes apparently got to know of his partner’s intimacy with her male friend through their daughter.

However, Karan Johar tweeted:

He further added:

Rhea Pillai, who was previously married to actor Sanjay Dutt, met Leander Paes on a flight to Goa in November 2003. The two hit it off; meeting more frequently and eventually became close companions. They later had a daughter in April 2006.

But, Paes has alleged in the petition that Rhea lied about her divorce from Sanjay Dutt. She told Paes that the duo were divorced in 2006, however, their divorce only came through in February 2008.
