Weeks after news surfaced that singer Nouman Javaid attempted to commit suicide, his wife and singer Fariha Parvez on Saturday filed forkhulla in a family court, in Lahore, Neo News reported.
Speaking to the media, Javaid said, “I don’t know how she is filing for a khullah when we didn’t even register our nikkah in the first place.”
Nouman said he has been battling depression for a while now. “I was in depression for quite some time before finally attempting suicide. I was facing issues in life but I wish to make it clear that my marriage has not ended yet,” he said, referring to hearsay of his falling out with wife, singer Fariha Parvez.
“Secondly, Fariha was not the only reason behind my depression; there were a number of other things involved,” Nouman shared.
Nouman and Fariha had tied the knot during a private ceremony earlier this year. Subsequent months saw the two get involved in a property dispute between them.
Nouman also denied claims that Fariha’s family had taken steps to recover money from him. “I am making efforts to convince her and I am hopeful that everything will turn out fine,” said the singer. “I am grateful to my well wishers who have supported me during crucial times by showing their love on social media.”
