Following an article in After Hrs on Monday (Rhea-Leander: Headed for divorce) Leander Paes’s spokesperson got in touch with us to say, “Leander and Rhea are not married. They have a daughter, but they are in a live-in relationship.”
Which confirms without any doubt that there is trouble between the duo. Why else would Leander’s publicist deny the wedding if all was hunky-dory? According to a friend of the couple, they got married in a small, intimate ceremony, in 2006 where they exchanged vows in front of Rhea’s spiritual guru. But whether that marriage will be considered legal in the court of law is the big question.
