British actress Elizabeth Hurley and Indian businessman Arun Nayar have finally been divorced. It was a high-profile hearing for the divorce. However, it was just a formality to get the verdict from the High Court judge. That is the reason why it took just about 90 odd seconds for the judge to pronounce the judgment.
As the result was a foregone conclusion, neither of the individuals who mattered - Elizabeth Hurley or Arun Nayar was present at the hearing. The conclusion was stated as being ‘unreasonable behavior’ on the part of Arun Nayar. That is why the decree nisi was granted as the court was satisfied and the petitioner is said to have been entitled for the divorce.
This is exactly what mattered the most “the respondent has behaved in such a way that the petitioner cannot be reasonably expected to live with the respondent”. As it was a mutual decision to get a divorce, both Elizabeth Hurley and Arun Nayar agreed to share the cost of the divorce.
Things got really weird after Elizabeth had a stint of news about having an affair with Australian Shane Warne. There were also images of her having kissing scenes with him. Things got from bad to worse and finally resulted in the inevitable divorce.
