Tennis star Sania Mirza and Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik might make an official divorce announcement after resolving legal complications, Pakistan-based Geo News reports.
Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik got married in 2010 and welcomed their son in 2018. They also celebrated their son’s birthday together in October.
A few days ago Sania shared an image with her son on her Instagram account with the caption, “The moments that get me through the hardest days.”
Meanwhile, Shoaib’s bio on Instagram still reads “Athlete | Husband to a superwoman Sania Mirza.”
It is reported that the main reason behind Shoaib and Sania’s troubled marriage is Pakistani model-turned-actress Ayesha Omar.
Shoaib and Ayesha worked with each other for a daring photoshoot almost a year back. The bold pictures of that photoshoot have resurfaced on social media and have added fuel to the fire.
Ever since the pictures made their way on the internet, a wave of Sania Mirza’s fans has started blaming Ayesha Omar for breaking the Tennis star’s wedding with Shoaib Malik. However, amid all the hate that Ayesha continues to receive from Shoaib and Sania’s common fans, the Pakistani model reacted to the claims that she is in a relationship with the cricketer.
While reacting to the reports of her dating Shoaib, the gorgeous model stated that she has immense respect for the cricketer and his wife, Sania. The model also added that she is just a good friend of Shoaib and nothing more than that. Her reaction in response to a fan’s comment can be read as:
“@m.ali.hamza1874 Jee nahin. Bilkul nahin. Un kee shadi ho chuki hain aur wo apni biwi ke saath bahut khush hain. Mein dono @shoaibmalik aur @mirzasaniar ki bahut respect karti hoon. Shoaib aur mein ache dost aur ek dusare ke kherkhwa hain. Bahut respect karte hain. Aisey rishtein bhi hotay hain duniya mein logo ke.”
According to the Pakistani media, the star couple has already been divorced if the reports are to be believed. The news of their divorce was reportedly confirmed by one of the close sources from Shoaib Malik’s management team in Pakistan. As per the source:
“Yes, they are officially divorced now. I can’t disclose more than that but can confirm that they have separated.”
