Celebrity Chef Kunal Kapoor Granted Divorce Over Cruelty By Wife

Kunal Kapoor-The Reelstars

Celebrity Chef Kunal Kapoor has been granted a divorce on Tuesday, citing cruelty from his estranged wife.

Yes, MasterChef India judge Kunal Kapoor, who has been hitting the headlines massively due to his divorce case with his estranged wife, can finally breathe a sigh of relief as the Delhi High Court has declared the allegations made by his estranged wife against him as baseless and stated that the woman’s treatment of him was devoid of respect and empathy.

According to a report by The Indian Express, the division bench of Justices Suresh Kumar Kait and Neena Bansal Krishna ruled that Kapur’s wife made allegations of infidelity and extra-marital relations after Kapur gained public attention. However, she failed to provide specific instances or proof beyond photographs, which were based on her presumption of illicit affairs. The court’s division bench ruled that Kapur’s wife had made wild allegations to discredit him.

The bench opined that the respondent’s wife had made “such wild allegations without any sound basis, purely to disrepute” Kapur in the “eyes” of the court to get a “favorable outcome”. “Such baseless arguments, when made about a person who is regularly in the public eye, have long-lasting effects on his reputation and tarnish his image among his peers. Therefore, such an act amounts to cruelty,” the bench underscored.

The HC allowed Kapur’s appeal challenging a family court’s 2018 order, denying him divorce under the Hindu Marriage Act. The bench further observed that it is a settled position of law that “making reckless, defamatory, humiliating, and unsubstantiated allegations in public against a spouse amounts to cruelty”.

The estranged couple tied the knot in April 2008 and welcomed their son in 2012. Kapur, who was judging Master Chef India at the time, accused his wife of humiliating him and never respecting his parents.

On the other hand, Kapur’s wife accused him of making false allegations to mislead the court, claiming that he lacked respect for marriage and was dishonest as a parent. She also claimed she communicated with her husband lovingly and was loyal.

As per the report, she also accused Kapur of conspiring with his parents to force her to commit suicide or take a divorce. She claimed that Kapur kept her in the dark and concocted fabricated stories to obtain her divorce.

The bench emphasized that marital discords are inevitable, but disrespect and inconsideration can lead to a loss of marriage’s sanctity.
