As various tabloids suggested that celebrity couple Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza had split up for good, rumours about them were the talk of the town.
However, this is not the first time that such rumours have circulated; it also happened in 2012, when the pair was going through a difficult time.
When asked about his marriage amid all the rumours, former Pakistani athlete Shoaib Malik provided clarification. The seasoned cricketer advised the interviewer quickly to disregard the rumours but refrained from providing further specifics.
Malik was in the spotlight after re-joining Karachi Kings for Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 8 because a close friend of theirs made surprising discoveries regarding their private lives.
According to earlier reports, the duo hasn’t addressed the claims because of the contracts they have in place. The relationship between the pair had been tense for a while. Even if they disagree, Malik and Mirza have chosen to jointly raise their son Izhaan Mirza-Malik.
Although there is discussion online that the couple has split, their cryptic Instagram postings about having “broken hearts” and going through a difficult time have been giving away numerous clues.
Interestingly, Sania is said to have recently moved to a new home in Dubai while Malik and Mirza continue to follow each other on Instagram.
