Controversy queen Rakhi Sawant can never stay out of the limelight. Be it her bold statements or her much-talked about swayamvar, Rakhi always manages to get into the limelight some way or the other. She is known for her bold avatar and not mincing her words. When Rakhi had entered in the mid-season of Bigg Boss 14 as a challenger, no one had thought that she would reach top five. Audiences loved her for being a pure ‘entertainer’ and many had applauded her decision to walk out of the reality show with Rs 14 lakh prize money.

In 2019, Rakhi Sawant had created a buzz when she had posted pictures of her white wedding look and had announced her intimate marriage with a UK-based businessman, Ritesh. To announce her ‘married’ status, Rakhi had posted pictures of herself, dressed as a bride in a white gown with a veil over her head, her locks left loose, chooda and mehendi as she had held a bouquet of tulips. She had stated that she would introduce her husband soon. But during her stint in the Bigg Boss house, Rakhi had revealed that Ritesh was already married and had a child.
Now, in an interview with Telly Talk, Rakhi opened up about Ritesh’s previous marriage and child and said that she wouldn’t have married him if she knew about it before. Talking about the same, she said, “Unhone mujhse ek baat chhupayi toh jo aap sabko bata diya. Woh nahi chhupana chahiye tha varna main apna ghar basane ke liye kisi ka ghar main nahi ujaadti.” When she was asked whether she would continue her marriage with him, she stated, “Maine shaadi ki hai dil se. Main apne pati ko bohot chahti hoon. Ab mere takdeer mein hi nahi hai.”
In one of the Weekend ka Vaar episodes, Rakhi had said that she had to marry Ritesh to save herself from someone. She had also revealed that Ritesh was already married with a child and she only got to know about it after their marriage. While her statement has melted many hearts, some had called her fake and said that she was cooking up stories to be in the show.

Amidst all the drama, Rakhi Sawant’s brother, Rakesh Sawant had shared his views on the same in a conversation with The Times Of India.

He had stated, “I am hearing this news for the first time myself. I am shocked beyond words. I can assure you that neither my mother nor I have any idea about Ritesh jiju's marriage and son. This can't be true!"
Before entering the show, Rakhi had talked about her bankruptcy and depression. In an interview with ETimes, Rakhi had shared how she was cheated by her close ally and had said, “Frankly speaking I am in need of money and I need a second chance to come to Bollywood again.” She had also talked about her financial struggles and had revealed, “I went bankrupt in life and lost everything in life and now Bigg Boss is my opportunity to shine.” She had also stated that she could never get her money back as the one cheated her had died and had said that she was suffering from depression and had stopped trusting people.
