A principal court in Chennai, India, has granted choreographer/actor/director Prabhu Deva and his wife Latha a divorce by mutual consent. Prabhu Deva and Latha got married in 1995 and have two children.
The two had been living separately for the past two years, after Prabhu Deva became involved with Southern actress Nayanthara. Prabhu Deva had reportedly married the Tamil actress earlier.
There were bitter feuds between Prabhu Deva and Latha during this time. She filed a petition in a family court to get her relationship with him back on track. She even went on a hunger strike and filed a second petition to prevent Nayathara and Prabhu Deva from giving joint interviews.
Now things appear to have been resolved between the two. As per the divorce agreement with Latha, he has paid Rs 10 lakh to her as permanent alimony. The actor also transferred property in Anna Nagar along with two cars to her name.
He has also transferred land at Injambakkam village and his property at Alekhyas Kaushik Meadows in the names of his two children. Both children are under Latha’s custody, but the court has granted Prabhu Deva access to them as he wishes. He also agreed to bear cost of their education, marriage and other expenses in future.
Both Latha and Prabhu Deva have agreed not to make any claims against each other in the future.
