Sad but true, yes. The rumours that have been floating around about an “A-list star getting a divorce” are in fact true. Of course they aren’t jumping the gun just yet and the press release today will say, Hrithik & Sussanne Roshan are opting for a separation.
BUT if you’re thinking this has something to do with Barbara Mori and their affair during the filming of Kites (remember Sussanne moved out quoting a termite issue?) it doesn’t. Relationships, especially those in the limelight are super complex. Mostly I imagine because celebrities live with such a totally skewed perception of themselves that it’s nearly impossible to “keep it real.”
I do however want to make the point that while it would be easy to assume that the rich handsome “superstar” husband is leaving the poor, sad, woe-begone star wife that just simply isn’t true.
The truth is she left him, about a week ago, because she was fed up. Now I suppose its up to Hrithik to try and relocate the real man behind the mask before it’s too late or he’s going to be superhero-ing it up all on his lonesome. True what they say eh? It’s lonely at the top.
As of yesterday this was Hrithik’s food for thought on Twitter, so I suppose he’s trying?
Anyway, its probably a difficult time for them both so here’s hoping they get through it and the kids don’t see too much trash in the press. xoxo
Update (21st Sept): While we stand by our very reliable sources, Hrithik and Sussanne’s PR representatives are denying this story. Out of fairness to them, we are noting their denial here; however we have yet to hear an official statement from either of the stars and will keep you updated as we know more.
Update (13th Dec): Hrithik Roshan released an official statement today confirming our report that he and Sussanne are indeed getting separated. Sad but true. :(
