Nine Bollywood celebrity couples who went through expensive divorces

Model Rhea Pillai and her former beau, tennis star Leander Paes are going through a messy separation and are embroiled in a legal battle over domestic violence and custody of their 10-year-old daughter. Alimony is another major point of contention between the couple.

According to reports, Rhea is demanding Rs 1 crore from Paes as one-time compensation along with a house. Rhea has argued that her lawyers did not add the extra one on her court petition for compensation, hence bringing the amount down to Rs 10 lakh compensation. Paes, however, has not agreed to the alimony.

Celebrities are known for their lavish weddings and their equally costly breakups. While some divorces have been cordial, or have been settled out of court, a number of celebrity divorces have turned out to be bitter affairs with much mud-slinging from both sides.
