Honey Singh's wife Shalini Talwar has filed a plea against the rapper-singer under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act accusing him of physical abuse. In her plea, Shalini has alleged that she was "subjected to numerous incidents of physical abuse, verbal, mental abuse and emotional abuse" by Honey Singh and his family.
Honey Singh has broken his silence on the serious allegations levelled against him and his family, by wife Shalini Talwar. In an official statement, he dismissed all his wife's accusations as 'malicious and cynical'. Honey Singh has said that he was 'deeply pained and distressed by the false and malicious allegations levied against him.'
"I am deeply pained and distressed by the false and malicious allegations levied against me and my family by my companion/wife of 20 years, Shalini Talwar. The allegations are severely odious," the rapper said in a statement.
She mentioned that the differences between the two cropped up right from their honeymoon in 2011 when he started acting distant and even hit her when she confronted him about it. The rapper had kept his marriage with Shalini Singh a secret from the public and only spoke about their relationship in 2014 on a reality TV show.
