It’s official now. Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora have ended their 18-year-old marriage after the Bandra Family Court in Mumbai granted them divorce.

The couple had filed for divorce through mutual consent in November last year. Arora will get the custody of their 14-year-old Arhaan Khan, but the court didn’t lay down any restrictions on Arbaaz over meeting his son.

Ironically, the divorce comes a day after Arbaaz and Arora were spotted with their son at the Justin Bieber concert in Navi Mumbai. In the past, Arora and Arbaaz have also come together for family functions.

While the estranged couple had never spoken about their differences, rumour had it they had drifted apart with Arbaaz rumoured to be dating a Goa restaurateur Yellow Mehra.   

Arbaaz has denied dating Mehra, but on television chat show Koffee With Karan, he admitted that there was someone in his life.  

Meanwhile, Arora’s friendship with actor Arjun Kapoor raised eyebrows, especially the latter's visits at odd hours to Arora's Bandra residence.

Arbaaz and Arora had dated each for a while before they got married in 1998.
