The most difficult part of a relationship is separation. When we start a relationship or a new phase in our life, we try to make everything joyful and cherished for our partner. But do we ever think about the times when we might have differences with our partner and what we are going to do to resolve them or what will be our next step? The answer is ‘no’. We try to give all the negative thoughts a back seat and focus only on the good parts of a relationship. The happy moments, cherished dates, fun outings, the casual strolls are all we try to remember and cherish in a relationship. When it comes to separation, most of the couples don’t take it in a positive way and wash their dirty linen in public.

Bollywood’s once loved and ideal couple, Arjun Rampal and Mehr Jesia had broken the hearts of many when they had decided to end their 21 years long marriage. The duo was considered the epitome of a steady relationship and was looked upon by all the millennial couples. The rumours about their separation were filling the gossip columns and it was only after they had released a joint statement, everything was confirmed. Arjun and Mehr had tied the knot in 1998 and have two adorable daughters, Mahikaa (2002) and Myra (2005). Mehr had always stood by Arjun despite various linkup rumours. But things soon took a turn and the duo decided to end their marriage.
It was in the beginning of 2019 when reports about Arjun Rampal and Mehr Jesia finally heading for divorce were riff. And on April 2019, the duo had moved to court to seek divorce and end their 21 years of marital life. The duo’s marriage came under the Special Marriage Act and they had to stay separately for 1 year to get a divorce. Now as per a SpotboyE report, Principal Judge, Shailaja Sawan of Bandra Family Court granted a divorce to the couple on Tuesday (November 19, 2019). Reportedly, the divorce has been sought through mutual consent and the custody of their two daughters now lies with Mehr.
As per a report in the Mumbai Mirror, Mehr Jesia and Arjun Rampal had filed for a divorce in the month of April 2019 and after almost six months, the Judge has dissolved their marriage. Their two daughters, Myra Rampal and Mahikaa Rampal, will reside with their mother in a duplex apartment whereas Arjun moved out of their home last year to live in a rented 2BHK apartment.

As per a Bombay Times report, the statement of their separation could be read as “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. 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.”
Post his separation with Mehr Jesia, Arjun Rampal has found love in model and actress, Gabriella Demetriades. The duo are proud parents to a tiny-tot, Arik Rampal and have been living their happily ever after. Arjun had shared with the world that his ladylove, Gabriella is pregnant with their baby, on April 20, 2019. Sharing the following picture on his Instagram handle, Arjun had captioned it as “Blessed to have you and start all over again....thank you baby for this baby". Gabriella too had posted the same picture and had written, "Grateful for you two can’t wait to meet you."
Mehr Jesia, Mahikaa Rampal and Myra Rampal had taken the news of their father, Arjun Rampal and Gabriella's soon-to-be-parents status sportingly. A SpotboyE report had stated, “The couple did their best to keep the pregnancy under wraps for the last six months. It turns out that several of their friends were kept in the dark too, including Mehr Jesia, Rampal’s wife of 20 years and mum to their two daughters, Mahikaa, 17, and Myra, 13. Mehr has in fact taken the news rather sportingly. Her friends say that even though they haven’t filed for divorce yet, Mehr has come to terms with the fact that Rampal has moved on personally.” (Do Read: Angad Bedi Shares Pictures Of His Daughter, Mehr's First Birthday Celebrations At Golden Temple)
