After years of turmoil, Pakistani singer Humaira Arshad and Ahmed Butt have finally decided to initiate divorce proceedings.
According to Express News, Humaira married Ahmed, who is an actor by profession, in 2004. In the past, the two have publicly accused each other of fraud among other things.
The two have a son who is currently in Ahmed’s custody. However, Humaira said she would go to court to fight for him.

“Ahmad Butt tortured me in front of people, snatched my money, and kidnapped my child and as a result I had no other choice but to make marriage a public affair,” she said, adding that keeping all these factors in mind, it is highly likely that the 11-year-old love marriage will come to an end.
Humaira said she only organised a press conference in response to her husband’s press briefing in which he had accused her of heinous crimes.
“I never want to come out in public, particularly over a minor family dispute, but my husband accused me of property fraud and threatened my life. That made me step up,” the famed singer told The Express Tribune.
“Ahmed never gave me a single penny, I was running the entire household on my earnings as a singer and Ahmed would ask for money every now and then. It is sad that he has brought our internal affairs to this point.”
