Amidst rumors of Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik considering a separation, a close friend of the couple has revealed that the two are officially divorced.
Ever since Sania Mirza shared a cryptic note on her social media handles, rumors have been rife that all is not well in her marriage with Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik. Speculations suggested that Sania and Shoaib are considering divorce and this has left their fans quite sad. Now a close friend of the couple has revealed that Sania and Shoaib have officially divorced.
According to a report by Inside Sport, a close friend of the couple, who was part of the country’s management team in Pakistan, confirmed the divorce and was quoted as saying, “Yes, they are officially divorced now. I can’t disclose more than that but can confirm that they have separated.”
The winner of India’s Tennis Twenty1 and six Grand Slam doubles titles recently announced that she will retire at the end of the season. They are reportedly living separately and are co-parents. Although the actual reason behind Sania and Shoaib’s divorce is not known, a report by DNA quoted Pakistani media as saying that Shoaib cheated on Sania.
Their social media posts and cryptic captions suggest something is wrong. Sania recently shared a picture with her son in which she and Shoaib celebrated the little one’s birthday. Shoaib shared pictures of the occasion, Sania did not. Recently, Sania shared a note that read, “Where do broken hearts go?” and it sent her fans into a frenzy.
What grabbed everyone’s attention was Shoaib’s heart touching post for his son which read, “When you were born, we became more humble and life meant something special to us. We may be not together and meeting everyday but Baba is always thinking about you and your smile every single second. May Allah give you everything you ask for @izhaan.mirzamalik. Baba & Mama love you.”
Sania and Shoaib got married in 2010 and had a son, Izhaan, in 2018.
