Honey Singh-Shalini Talwar Divorce: 7 facts about the high-profile case
After over 13 years of marriage, singer-rapper Honey Singh and his wife Shalini Talwar were granted a divorce by a Delhi court. The second motion in the case was allowed by Family Court Principal Judge Paramjit Singh, ending a nearly two-and-a-half-year legal procedure.
A Delhi court granted divorce to singer-rapper Honey Singh and Shalini Talwar. Six to eighteen months after the first divorce petition is filed, a second motion is filed by the Hindu Marriage Act. This period acts as an interim between the parties, giving them time to consider whether to file for divorce. In January 2011, Singh and Shalini exchanged vows. They jointly filed for divorce in September 2022 under section 13B of the Hindu Marriage Act after 11 years of marriage. The interregnum term of six months for contemplation before concluding the divorce was granted by the court upon approval of their petition.
In the end, both partners agreed to separate living arrangements. The terms and conditions of their settlement were placed before the court in a sealed cover.
The judge asked Honey Singh one last time if he wanted to try living with his wife and give his marriage another shot before sanctioning the couple's separation. The singer retorted, nevertheless, that there was no more opportunity to live or reside together.
For Honey Singh, Ishaan Mukherjee, a partner at Metalaw Offices, appeared alongside solicitors Jaspal Singh and Amrita Chatterjee. As for Shalini Talwar, lawyer Vivek Singh made an appearance.
