Rapper and music composer Honey Singh landed in trouble after his wife accused him of domestic violence and sleeping with a number of women after marriage. Singh’s wife Shalini filed a case of domestic violence against him at the Tis Hazari courts on Tuesday. While the rapper will appear before the court on August 28, he has now decided to break his silence on the same. Taking to his social media, Honey Singh finally released an official statement on the accusations.
He wrote “I am deeply pained and distressed by the false and malicious allegations levied against me and my family by my companion/wife of 20 years, Mrs. Shalini Talwar. The allegations are severely odious.I have never issued a public statement or press note in the past despite being subjected to harsh criticism for my lyrics, speculation on my health, & negative media coverage in general. However, I see no merit in maintaining a studied silence this time because some of the allegations have been directed at my family – my old parents and younger sister – who have stood by me during some very difficult and trying times and comprise my world.”
“The allegations are cynical and defaming in nature.I have been associated with the industry for over 15 years and worked with artists and musicians across the country. Everyone is aware of my relationship with my wife, who has been an integral part of my crew for more than a decade now and always accompanied me to my shoots, events, and meetings. I strongly refute all the allegations but will not comment any further because the matter is sub-judice before the Court of Law.
I have full faith in the judicial system of this country, and I am confident that the truth will be out soon. The allegations are subject to be proven and the Hon’ble Court has provided me with an opportunity to reply to such allegations. In the meantime, I humbly request my fans and public at large to not draw any conclusion about me and my family until the Hon’ble Court pronounces a verdict after hearing both the sides.
I am confident that justice will be served, and honesty will win. As always, I’m grateful for all the love and support of my fans and well-wishers, who inspire me to work hard and make good music.Thank you! Yo Yo Honey Singh,” the rapper wrote in an Instagram post.
For those unversed, Honey Singh and Talwar got married at a Delhi gurudwara in 2011. Honey Singh introduced his fans to his wife in the year 2014 during an episode of reality show India’s Rawstar. Shalini is quite active on social media and keeps on sharing posts with her husband. However, for the past few days, she has been sharing cryptic posts hinting at something wrong going on in her life.
