Yesterday popular actress Lissy Lakshmi confirmed that her marriage with Priyadarshan had officially ended. She also gave a quote to the media that now she is relieved. Before it was just lissy who appealed to the court for a divorce. A 24 year old marriage just ended yesterday and the wealth of the couple has been distributed equally among them. The house in Chennai Nungambakam City goes to priyadarshan and the Good luck preview theatre near the lake Nungambakam area will go to lissy.
“My marriage with Priyadarshan officially ended today. We both have signed the final papers at the Family Court in Chennai. This has been a real ordeal,” Lissy said in a statement.
The couple had married in 1990, and soon after Lissy gave up acting. They had filed for divorce in March.
“In recent times, all celebrity divorces, from Hrithik (Roshan) and Sussanne to Dilip and Manju (Warrier) to most recently Amala (Paul) and Vijay all have been mutually agreed divorces. I am sure it also must have been painful to those couples but whatever differences they may have had, they all decided to respect each other,” she said.
“It was often fierce and uncivilized battle on and off the courts until a compromise was reached at the Madras High Court. Perhaps the ugliness of our divorce proceedings says all about the kind of marriage we have had. Anyway, I feel relieved now,” she added.
Lissy feels this is the end of a long and often very difficult road, and it’s time to move on.
