Honey Singh Divorce: Yo Yo Honey Singh finalizes divorce with estranged spouse Shalini Talwar and presents Rs 1 Cr alimony test
Rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh has officially ended his marriage to ex-wife Shalini Talwar after 21 years of marriage. It appears the couple have reached an agreement after a year-long legal battle in court.
The case, which took place in Saket District Court in New Delhi, was concluded after the singer presented a settlement check to his ex-wife.
Times Now reported that Singh paid his ex-wife Rs 1 crore in alimony. The estranged couple have also not commented on the developments.
Last year, Talwar filed a domestic violence case against the music producer in the Tis Hazari Court in New Delhi, accusing him of physical, verbal and psychological abuse.
In her case, she had asked for compensation of Rs. 20 million under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act. She also claimed that Singh was involved in financial fraud.

At that time, she had asked the court for protection under Section 18 of the Act, asking the court to release “stridhan” (valuable things belonging to a woman) and her other possessions.
After Talwar’s claims came to light, Singh issued a statement on Instagram. The 39-year-old denied all allegations and said he has always failed to make a statement but had to speak out as some of the allegations were aimed at his family.
The statement said: “I am deeply distressed and disturbed by the false and malicious allegations made against me and my family by my companion/wife of 20 years, Ms Shalini Talwar. The allegations are extremely heinous. I have never made a public statement or press release in the past, despite heavy criticism for my writing, speculation about my health and negative media coverage in general, but I see no merit in carefully remaining silent this time, as some of the allegations counter judge my family – my elderly parents and my younger sister – who stood by me in very difficult and difficult times and make my world. The allegations are cynical and defamatory.”
The duo met at school and fell in love. After dating for 10 years, they secretly tied the knot in January 2011 at a traditional Sikh wedding ceremony in a farmhouse in Delhi. The rituals also included pheras (circles around the sacred fire) in a gurudwara.
