Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza Divorce Reason
Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza tied the knot in 2010 in Hyderabad. They were enjoying a great relationship and there wasn’t any hint of any differences between the two.
In 2018, they had a boy child named, “Izhan Mirza Malik” who stays with Sania now. As per the close sources, Sania wasn’t happy due to Malik’s extramarital affairs with other women. It started spoiling their happy marriage and they started living separately.
A Pakistani podcast has stated that Shoaib Malik and Sana Javed had an affair for the last three years. But Sana’s ex-husband, Umair Jaswal wasn’t aware of it.
However, when Sania’s family learned about this development, Sania walked away from her marriage. As per her father’s statement, Sania Mirza opted for Khula (a unilateral divorce by a Muslim woman) following Malik’s cheating in the marriage.
As per the available information, Malik’s family wasn’t happy with his decision to get married for the third time. And his sisters tried to alleviate the situation and didn’t support him in his decision.
His Marital Journey
If we throw light on Shoaib Malik’s marital journey, this is the third time he has married someone. Before Sana Javed and Sania Mirza, the Pakistani cricketer was married to Ayesha Siddiqui (also known as Maha Siddiqui).
His First Marriage with Ayesha
Shoaib Malik’s first wife met him online and they had a telephonic marriage. She even presented her wedding clips as proof of their marriage, a few days before the Pakistani athlete married Sania Mirza.

She even went to the extent of filing a court case of infidelity against Malik. However, Shoaib Malik accused Ayesha of misleading her through an act of catfishing. As per Shoaib’s claims, Ayesha sent him the wrong pictures of her and made him fall into her trap.
At last, Shoaib Malik entered a settlement with Ayesha Siddiqui and he reportedly paid an alimony of ₹15 crores to her.
His Second Marriage with Sania Mirza
