Finally, it was D-day for Prabhu Deva, as he was sanctioned divorce with his wife of 15 years Latha aka Ramlath today (July 2) at the family court in Chennai.
Remember that a joint affidavit, signed by the couple, was submitted in the family court on Dec 29, 2010.
The final settlement, was fixed for hearing after six months (on June 30) but both the parties failed to appear on the said date and the Magistrate has posted the case to July 10th, 2011.
But like a filmi-twist, Prabhu and Latha suddenly appeared before the magistrate today and was sanctioned divorce. This high drama at the Family court grounds has brought to an end a rather complicated court battle. Sources close to Prabhu say that it was to avoid media glare and publicity that he failed to appear on June 30 and instead opt for today.
But contrary to what Prabhu thought, the news of Prabhu and Latha appearing in court was out by noon and a huge contingent of reporters from newspapers and channels were waiting outside to hear the verdict. Prabhu was seen calm and composed but refused to speak to the media.
