Things between Leander Paes and Rhea Pillai have hit a stand still after the two told the Supreme Court that settlement of their dispute is not possible.
Rhea’s counsel told the bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra that his client has asked for a house from Paes for his daughter which he is not agreeing to.
Countering the argument, Paes’ lawyer said Rhea has already got a house from actor and former husband Sanjay Dutt and that Leander is not ready to meet the demand.
The bench said, “It is not possible to say anything at this stage. We can’t force the parties for settlement. We tried our best to persuade the parties while hearing them in-chamber.”
The Apex Court had earlier suggested that the couple, who were in a live-in relationship and have a daughter, to settle the dispute to put an end to their dispute.
Rhea had approached the top court, claiming that she was in a “matrimonial relationship” with Paes and was entitled for maintenance under the special Domestic Violence law.
Paes and Rhea are in a legal battle over custody of their daughter. Rhea had filed a case of domestic violence and harassment against Paes in 2014.
