The Delhi High Court granted celebrity chef Kunal Kapur a divorce on Tuesday due to the cruelty he faced from his estranged wife. The court stated that her conduct lacked dignity and empathy. Kapurโ€™s appeal against the family courtโ€™s decision denying him a divorce was successful and the court said that making reckless, defamatory and humiliating allegations against a spouse in public amounts to cruelty, according to law. The couple married in April 2008 and had a son in 2012. In his plea, Kapur, once a judge on the television show MasterChef India, accused his wife of disrespecting his parents and humiliating him.

โ€œIn the light of the aforenoted facts of the present case, we find that the conduct of the respondent (wife) towards the appellant (husband) has been such that it is devoid of dignity and empathy towards him. When such is the nature of one spouse towards the other, it brings disgrace to the very essence of marriage and there exists no possible reason as to why he should be compelled to live while enduring the agony of living together,โ€ a bench of Justices Suresh Kumar Kait and Neena Bansal Krishna said, as reported by PTI.

His estranged wife said that she always tried to communicate with her husband lovingly and remained loyal to him. However, she alleged that he kept her in the dark and made up false stories to get a divorce. The court noted that while disagreements are normal in every marriage, when these conflicts lead to disrespect and disregard for a spouse, the marriage loses its sanctity.

โ€œIt is relevant to mention here that within two years of marriage, the appellant has established himself as a celebrity chef, which is a reflection of his hard work and determination. Considering the aforesaid facts, it is only prudent to observe that these are mere allegations made by the respondent to disrepute the appellant in the eyes of the court and such unsubstantiated claims have the effect on oneโ€™s reputation and therefore, amounts to cruelty,โ€ the bench said.
