In the pantheon of the greatest couples, Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora stood as one of the power couples of Bollywood. However, to our disappointment, their marriage of 20 years came to an end.
Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora’s split have always been a front page headlines. Their fairytale romance took off after a controversial advertisement and their divorce triggered controversies in the industry.
Well, to begin with, the former couple met during a Coffee Ad Shoot in the year 1993. The advertisement, for its bold content, created a rage among netizens. The couple then went on to share screen space together in albums and movies and dated for 5 years, before finally tying the knot in 1998.
Everything was going top-notch with the couple in their lives. Meanwhile, out of nowhere in the year 2016, Malaika’s name suddenly started linking with Arjun Kapoor and on the other hand, Arbaz Khan’s affair also gained spotlight. Later in 2017, Malaika and Arbaaz Khan finally called it quits. The custody of their then 15-year-old son Arhaan went to Malaika.
Recently, Arbaaz Khan himself brought out the reason behind their divorce and it was his weakness for gambling that led them to seek a divorce. Shocking that is!
As per reports, Arbaaz Khan has a deep-rooted weakness to gambling and betting and has lost nearly 3 crores. Malaika was unacceptable of this habit and wanted him to give up this awful habit. As per reports, it was the betting addiction of Arbaaz, which separated him from Malaika.
