Malaika Arora Khan poses with husband Arbaaz Khan
Arbaaz recently made a statement saying he is "possessive" about his wife and is "afraid" of losing her.
According to reports, Malaika Arora Khan has filed for divorce with her husband Arbaaz Khan. Arbaaz has been married to Malaika for the past 17 years and has been in the midst of rumours of a split.
Indian tabloid Mumbai Mirror has reported that Malaika has ignored repeated attempts by her brother-in-law Salman Khan to patch things up. According to rumors, she is also upset with the fact that Arbaaz doesn't support her financially when it comes to their son's education.
Mirror also reports that Malaika had walked out of their Bandra home with their 14-year-old son, Arhaan, three months ago and rented an apartment in Khar.
Arbaaz recently made a statement saying he is "possessive" about his wife and is "afraid" of losing her. Arbaaz also said he was not very possessive about Malaika earlier, but that has changed over time.
"It happens. When you achieve something or someone, you don't want to lose the person. I love Malaika but I'm possessive about her," Arbaaz said on the TV show Yaar Mera Superstar, where he was accompanied by Malaika. "It wasn't like this when she was younger or I was more new into the relationship, but it has happened now. She is very precious and dear to me. I love her more than anything else in the world. I'm afraid of losing her now," he added.
Rumours of their split started surfacing when they signed up as hosts for the Indian reality TV show, Power Couple but filmed together only three episodes.

"I am a writer... don't ask me about anyone's love affair or break-up reports. I never interfere in the life of my kids. I don't want to talk about it," Salim told PTI.
Malaika's mother Joyce Polycarp, too, isn't willing to speak on the issue. "They are two grown up adults ...it is there business. I don't want to get into it. I don't want to talk to press," she said when reached for comments about divorce reports.
