Singer and rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh has been in the news for some time due to allegations made by wife Shalini Talwar. In such a situation, for the first time, Honey Singh has shared his official statement on social media, breaking his silence on these allegations.
Saddened by false and malicious allegations
Honey Singh wrote in his official statement, ‘I am deeply saddened and pained by the false and malicious allegations leveled against me and my family by my partner/wife of 20 years, Mrs. The allegations are deeply reprehensible. Despite harsh criticism for my songs, speculation on my health and negative media coverage, I have never issued a public statement or press note.
silence didn’t feel right
Honey Singh further wrote, ‘However, this time I did not find it right to remain silent on this matter as some of the allegations have been leveled on my family, my old parents and younger sister – who stood by me during difficult times. I have been associated with this industry for over 15 years and have worked with artists and musicians from across the country. Everyone is aware of my relationship with my wife, who has been an integral part of my crew for over a decade and has always accompanied me to shoots, events and meetings.
vehemently denying the allegations
After this Honey Singh writes, ‘I completely deny all the allegations but will not comment further as the matter is sub judice before the court. I have full faith in the judicial system of this country and I am sure the truth will come out soon. The matter is in court and the Hon’ble Court has given me an opportunity to respond to such allegations. In the meantime, I humbly request my fans and the public not to draw any conclusions about me and my family until the Hon’ble Court after hearing both the sides gives its verdict.
justice will prevail and truth will prevail
At the end of his statement, Honey Singh wrote, ‘I believe that justice will be served and truth will prevail. As always, I am grateful for the love and support of my fans and well wishers who inspired me to work harder and make good music.
what are the charges
Significantly, Shalini Talwar has filed a petition against husband Honey Singh in Delhi’s Tis Hazari Court alleging domestic violence. In her petition, Shalini has alleged that “she has been subjected to physical, verbal, mental and emotional abuse by Honey Singh and his family”. Shalini says that ‘differences between the two started from their honeymoon when Singer started keeping distance from her and when she was talked to her, she even raised her hand on his wife.’
