Domestic Violence Case: Yo Yo Honey Singh seeks exemption from Delhi High Court, says “He is unwell”

Yo-Yo Honey Singh has been in the headlines ever since his wife Shalini Talwar filed a domestic violence case against him. According to a recent update, Singh’s lawyer asks for exemption from the Delhi High Court as he is unwell. The court has asked Honey Singh to submit his medical report and Income Tax Returns and started saying that ‘no one is above the law.’

As per ANI, “Case against singer-actor ‘Yo Yo Honey Singh by his wife under Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act | Singh’s counsel seeks his exemption from personal appearance, citing that he’s unwell. He assured Delhi Court that he’ll appear on the next date of the hearing. Delhi Court seeks medical report and Income Tax returns of Yo Yo Honey Singh, says “no one is above the law.” Singh’s counsel says they will file medical records and Income Tax returns at the earliest.”

Singh has denied all allegations of domestic violence against him as false and malicious. Taking to his Instagram account, the singer-rapper in the statement wrote, “I am deeply pained and distressed by the false and malicious allegations levied against me and my family by my companion/wife of 20 years, Shalini Talwar. These allegations are severely odious.”



I have never issued a public statement or press note in the past despite being subjected to harsh criticism for my lyrics, speculation about my health and negative media coverage in general. However, I see no merit in maintaining a studied silence this time because some of the allegations have been directed at my family – my older parents and younger sister – who have stood by me during some very difficult and trying times and comprise my world. The allegations are cynical and defaming in nature,” he further said.


Shalini filed a domestic violence case against Singh and sought Rs 10 crore compensation under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act. She said she felt like a “farm animal… being treated cruelly”.
Shalini also revealed that she was subjected to numerous incidents of physical, verbal, mental, and emotional abuse at the hands of her husband and his family.
