Leander Paes' Alleged Ex-Wife, Rhea Pillai Wins Domestic Violence Case Against Him After 7 Years

Rhea Pillai is the ex-wife of Sanjay Dutt, and cheating on him, she had started dating Leander Paes in 2003. They were in a live-in relationship, and if the rumours are to be believed, they had got married between 2005 and 2008 at Colaba. While there is no strong evidence to confirm their wedding, they have a daughter together named Aiyana. However, in June 2014, Rhea had filed a domestic violence case against Leander and his father and had demanded the custody of their daughter.  

In 2017, it was reported that Leander Paes was paying Rs. 1.5 lakh per month to Rhea Pillai, while she had requested him to pay Rs. 2.62 lakh. Aiyana was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2016 and Rhea had wanted Leander to pay Rs. 1.87 lakh for their daughter's medical expenses and Rs. 75,000 for herself. Instead of reconciling after their daughter, Aiyana's medical condition, Leander and Rhea both had continued their legal battle, and the case had taken new twists and turns after every hearing. Now, finally, the court has given the verdict in their domestic violence case.

A Metropolitan magistrate court in Mumbai issued the orders in Rhea Pillai and Leander Paes’ domestic violence case. According to a report in PTI, Metropolitan magistrate, Komal Singh Rajput passed the order earlier this month that Leander had committed various acts of domestic violence against Rhea. The magistrate said, "It is proved that the respondent caused various acts of domestic violence." The court also ordered Leander to pay a monthly rent of Rs. 50,000 apart from monthly maintenance of Rs. 1 lakh to Rhea if she chooses to leave their shared property. The magistrate also mentioned that as Leander’s career in tennis is ‘almost over’, it would cause prejudice to order him to live in a rented home while paying maintenance to Rhea.
