In the midst of rumours that Prabhu Deva and Nayantara are likely to tie the knot soon, Prabhu Deva and his wife Latha aka Ramalath have finally filed a petition seeking mutual divorce before a Family Court. Prabhu Deva and Ramlath filed a petition submitting that all efforts taken by mediators and elders in their families failed to find a solution and they have agreed for divorce by mutual consent. Ramlath also withdrew her earlier petitions pending before the court.
The judge adjourned the matter for further hearing.
Earlier, Ramlath approached the Chennai Family Court pleading for restitution of conjugal rights after Prabhu Deva admitted his affair and forthcoming marriage with Nayantara. In her petition, Ramalath had accused Prabhu Deva of not taking care of domestic responsibilities and not paying money to run the household expenses after he allegedly fell in love with Nayantara.
Prabhu Deva and Ramlath were married on September 8, 1995 and had three sons. One of their sons passed away due to cancer.
