Rhea Pillai, who is already in a legal battle with Leander Paes in a custody battle of their eight year old daughter Aiyana, accused him of throwing her out of their apartment after she returned from a party late at night.
Rhea Pillai was spotted; looking troubled, at the Bandra police station, where she has given her statement regarding the incident.
According to a report, Rhea Pillai and Aiyana had left their house at The Jacker’s building, Carter Road, for a party in Juhu and when Rhea Pillai came back, five men blocked her way, screamed at her and did not allow her to enter her house. She alleged that Leander had done this to lock her out of the house.
However, when she entered the house with the help of police she found that Leander Paes had packed all her belongings. What’s surprising is that Leander’s lawyer has refuted Rhea Pillai’s claim.
“Thank god my daughter was not with me. I had left her at Rani Mukerji’s house and had come home to freshen up. He is crossing all limits now. His lies hurt me but my truth will kill him.” stated a visibly upset Rhea.
Luckily Rhea had left daughter Aiyana at Rani’s place and she did not have to see five men screaming at her mother outside her own home. After the incident, Gauri Khan and Avanti Birla reached Rhea Pillai‘s house to give her moral support.
Earlier this week, Leander Paes had accused Rhea of being an irresponsible parent. To this Karan Johar had then come to Rhea Pillai’s rescue saying, “Rhea is the most loving, loyal and wonderful friend, mother and partner. I have known her for over two decades. Recent reportage is unwarranted. Sad that sometimes you have to stand and defend goodness. I appreciate the media’s need to report. I wish it came with a little sensitivity.” said Karan Johar.
Well this case is now getting messier by the day.
