Married for about 17 years, the couple was said to be the one of the most-loved couples of tinsel town and their separation indeed came as a surprise to many. However, now that their divorce proceedings have begun things are starting to get ugly as the couples wash their dirty linen in public.
Latest reports now say that Malaika has asked for a hefty sum as alimony from her soon to be ex-husband and is in no mood to let things end smoothly.
According to the a leading entertainment portal, Malaika has demanded Rs 10-15 crores as her final divorce settlement. Besides this lump sum amount Malaika might also demand for monthly maintenance and other charges for her son.
While Arbaz was shocked at first when he heard about the amount, he has given into the pressure and has agreed to pay the sum over a period of time. He has also offered to pay for his son's education and upbringing. Reports also say that Arhaan would be staying with Malaika and would be meeting Arbaaz as per the conditions set in the final divorce papers.
"But that would again depend on a lot of things, which includes how quickly Arbaaz and Malaika come to a common point as far as terms and conditions of financial settlement are concerned," adds the source in the report.
It is also being said that Arbaaz was the one who was hoping for a miracle to happen and waiting for things to work out between him and Malaika, but the latter had already made up her mind.
This is why Malaika was seen at many festive occasions and functions at the Khan household including Eid and Ganpati celebrations. The duo was also seen at Arhaan's birthday party and were quite actively involved with the celebrations.
