Yo Yo Honey Singh Domestic Violence Case: Delhi Court Orders In-Camera Hearing

A Delhi court on Tuesday ordered in-camera hearing of the domestic violence case filed against singer Yo Yo Honey Singh by his wife, Shalini Talwar, PTI reported.


According to the report, Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Tania Singh passed the order after obtaining the consent of both Singh and Talwar. “If there is even a slight possibility of reconciliation, that should not be ruled out,” the magistrate said.

Singh has been accused of domestic violence by his wife. Talwar had filed a plea under the ‘Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act’ in Delhi’s Tis Hazari Court, and the case was registered on August 3 before the magistrate.

Talwar has alleged that she was subjected to physical, verbal, and mental abuse at the hands of Singh on numerous occasions. She also alleged that Singh used to earn around Rs 4 crore a month through his songs, royalties, and performances and that he would often be paid in cash, but not disclose this to her. She also said that he got addicted to alcohol and drugs, and accused him of infidelity as well.

She also mentioned in her plea that she has been living under the constant threat of physical harm. Additionally, Talwar also sought an interim compensation of Rs 10 crore.

On August 6, Singh issued a statement on social media refuting his wife’s allegations, which he said were ‘false and malicious’. He also requested his fans to not draw any conclusions about him or his family while the case was going on.


In September, Talwar had filed a fresh application to restrain him from creating third-party rights on the movable and immovable assets owned by him or his companies in the UAE. The court had earlier passed interim orders restraining Singh from disposing of their jointly owned properties and the stridhan owned by his wife.

Singh and Talwar got married on January 23, 2011, after being in a relationship for close to two decades. However, the rapper only introduced her to his fans in 2014 through an episode of the reality show India’s Raw Star.
