Rakhi Sawant recently opened about about her relationship with husband Ritesh Singh. Rakhi recently announced separation from husband Ritesh Singh.
Rakhi revealed that the decision for separation was taken by her husband. She also opened up that Ritesh probably waited to announce the separation as he didn’t want to pay Rs. 2 crores penalty for not attending Bigg Boss 15 Grand Finale.
Talking about the separation, Rakhi Sawant said, “Hmmm… yes. I felt he was staying in my house only to be at the Grand Finale. Bigg Boss ke contract mein hain (It is in the Bigg Boss contract) that you have to pay ₹2 crore if you don’t attend the Grand Finale. Besides, he was not touching me or kissing me in front of the media. Only I was kissing him. He is a shy person, lekin un baton se zaroor jyaada lagne laga tha (but these things gave me an inkling).”
Rakhi also said that she got the idea before that Ritesh might leave her. “He was with me on Friday, throughout. We woke up on Sunday very normally. Suddenly, he started packing his bags and said that he wants to separate from me as his legal issues (with his wife) have become too much. God knows who he’s spoken to during those morning hours that led him to take this step,” she said.
The couple tied knot in 2019, while the marriage was legally invalid because Ritesh was still married to first wife Snigdha Priya.
“Bachcha bhi iske paas hai, paise bhi iske paas hai. Somehow, iski life toh settled hai. Meri life isne jaan bujh ke barbaad karke rakhi hai taaki yeh na kahin jaa sake aur kuch kar bhi na sake (She has our child and money too. Her life is settled. She has ruined my life so that I have nowhere to go),” Ritesh said.
