Our problem started after he participated in Idea Star Singer. After the show, he had a lot of fans and he started an extramarital affair with various females. I have even seen offensive messages on his phone. When I enquired he started verbally and physically abusing me. He always hid the fact that he is married and never took me to the show even when whole family went. He hasn’t stayed in America for 5 years, he was only there for 2.5 years. Its totally wrong to state that, I took 5 Lakhs from him. I was not able to see my kids even after all these years and he declared that, i fled with my lover.” Technoea
