In a significant legal development, the Delhi High Court has approved the divorce petition of celebrity chef Kunal Kapur, citing grounds of cruelty.

A division bench comprising Justices Suresh Kumar Kait and Neena Bansal Krishna highlighted the allegations put forth by Kapur’s wife, accusing him of infidelity and engaging in extramarital relationships after gaining public prominence. However, the court noted a lack of concrete evidence supporting these accusations during the wife’s testimony, highlighting a failure to provide specific instances or substantial proof beyond mere presumptions.

The ruling underscores the judiciary’s stance on the gravity of making unfounded and defamatory claims in the public sphere, particularly within the context of marital relationships. It serves as a reminder of the legal consequences associated with reckless behavior that can potentially damage spousal dynamics and reputations.
