Rakhi Sawant had talked about her husband for the longest time, and her fans were extremely curious to know about his identity. However, after a long wait, we all got to see Rakhi Sawant's husband, Ritesh Singh, on the sets of Bigg Boss 15. Ever since Rakhi and Ritesh had made an entry in the Bigg Boss house, everyone witnessed their loving chemistry. Now, Rakhi has shocked her entire fanbase as she announced her separation from her hubby, Ritesh.
Rakhi Sawant and Ritesh's marriage has been in the news for many reasons. However, the reason that had shocked everyone was when the latter's wedding picture with his first wife, Snigdha Priya, had gone viral on the internet. People had started questioning his relationship with Rakhi Sawant and had started trolling them. In the picture, Ritesh could be seen wearing a maroon sherwani with a red safa, and his first wife could be seen wearing a red and golden lehenga.
On February 13, 2022, Rakhi Sawant took to her IG handle and shared a long note, announcing her separation from her hubby, Ritesh. In the separation note, she expressed her feelings and shared that according to her, the decision had to be made. She wished Ritesh the best in life and added that she was heartbroken at the moment. Her note can be read as:
"Dear fans and well-wishers just wanted to say that Ritesh and I have decided to part ways. After the Bigg Boss show, a lot has happened and I was unaware of certain things which were out of my control. We have tried to work out our differences and tried to make things work but I think it is best we both move on amicably and we both enjoy our lives separately. I am really sad and heartbroken but this had to happen before Valentine’s Day but the decision had to be made. I wish Ritesh the best in life but for me at this stage in life I have to focus on my work and my life and keep myself happy and healthy. Thank you for understanding and supporting me always! Rakhi Sawant."
Earlier, in a conversation with ETimes, Rakhi Sawant had opened up about her current relationship status and had revealed whether she was still married to her husband, Ritesh, or they've parted ways with each other. Revealing the truth about her and Ritesh's much-talked-about marriage, the actress had said:
“Main abhi kuch bhi nahin bata sakti. Abhi we are friends. Kuch cheezein hain jo vo (Ritesh) sort out kar rahe hain. But abhi hum friends hain and bahut saari baatein hain jo main nahi bata paungi abhi.”
Going further in the interview, Rakhi Sawant had also added that some court-related things were going on in their relationship, which is why she couldn't say much on this matter then. However, she had clearly stated that she wants to be with Ritesh. The actress had also stated that if the world thinks that her husband is a 'bhaade ka pati', even then, she doesn't care about it. However, when Rakhi was asked whether she wants to spend the rest of her life with Ritesh, the actress hadn't answered it and had given a zipped lip expression. She had stated:
“Main ye bhi nahi keh sakti ki. But abhi hum ache dost hain. Actually, kuch court se related cheezein hain toh I don't want to talk about it. Hum abhi friends hain, pehle husband-wife the. Sabne kaha mera bhaade ka pati, mera bhaade ka pati. So whatever you think bhaade ka toh bhaade ka usme kya. Abhi we are friends, good friends, Sab kuch acha hoga. I want to be with him."
Valentine's Day is around the corner, and just like every partner in the world, Rakhi Sawant, too, have some demands from her husband, Ritesh, to pamper her. The paps had spotted the couple at the showroom of Mercedes Benz a few days ago. In a conversation with the paps, Rakhi had talked about how she had always wanted to buy a Mercedes Benz and had assumed that maybe her husband, Ritesh, might gift her one on Valentine's Day, giving some hints to her hubby. However, Ritesh was seen reluctant to sit inside the car and was also seen nodding a 'No' to Rakhi. His reaction to Rakhi's aao jaan yahan baitho was indeed an 'every husband ever' moment.
We wish Rakhi Sawant the strength to cope with this situation!
