Yo Yo Honey Singh- Shalini Talwar marriage debacle
In 2021, Shalini Talwar lodged a domestic violence complaint against Honey Singh, whom she married on January 23, 2011, and sought Rs 20 crore compensation under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act. Shalini had alleged that he had assaulted her over the course of their 10-year marriage. Not only this, but Talwar had also claimed that Singh had affairs with other women.
However, Honey Singh denied the serious allegation in a detailed statement saying, "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, Mrs. Shalini Talwar. The allegations are severely odious."
"I have never issued a public statement or press note in the past despite being subjected to harsh criticism for my lyrics, speculation on my health, & negative media coverage in general. However, I see no merit in maintaining a studied silence this time because some of the allegations have been directed at my family – my old parents and younger sister – who have stood by me during some very difficult and trying times and comprise my world. The allegations are cynical and defaming in nature," Singh had added.
