Mumbai: Arjun Rampal and his wife Mehr Jessia are separating after two decades of marriage. The couple announced their decision to end the marriage in a joint statement.
“After a 20-year-long beautiful journey filled with love and beautiful memories, we would like to share, that all journeys have different paths. We feel that it is time for us to move on to different destinations henceforth,” the statement released by Arun and Mehr read.
“We have always been solid when it has come to us, we will continue to be solid for each other and our loved ones, as we embark upon a new journey. Both of us being extremely private people feel strange to be making this statement, but such are the circumstances of our lives. Where the truth can get distorted and lost.”
” We are a family, our love for each other is forever intact and we shall always be there for one another and most importantly, for our children Mahikaa and Myra. We would therefore appreciate our privacy through this time. Thank all for their support. Relationships can end, but love lives on. We won’t be commenting on this any further,” the statement read.
According to reports, Arjun and Mehr decided to give their marriage another shot, and for a while, it looked like everything was back on track. The two, along with their daughters Mahikaa and Myra, reportedly went on several getaways and bonded like a family.
Unfortunately, it was not long before the differences cropped up again, and this time, it was the final nail in the coffin for the couple.
Arjun, a former model, tied the knot with long-time girlfriend Mehr Jessia, also a model, in 1998. The couple has two children – Mahikaa and Myra – from their marriage.
It was even said that the increasing closeness between Arjun and Sussanne was the reason behind the latter’s divorce with Hrithik.
