Indian cricketer Ravindra Jadeja and his wife Rivaba Jadeja have been hitting the headlines after certain accusations made by the former’s father went viral on social media. During an interview, Jadeja’s father revealed that his relationship with his son and daughter-in-law has been strained for a long time. 

Recently, Rivaba was asked about her father-in-law’s accusations and the politician refused to dwell on the topic. She gave a stern reply and instead reminded the media persons to focus on the subject they were all attending the event for and not ask personal questions.

“Why are we here today? You can contact me directly if you want to know about it,” Rivaba said sternly when asked about her relationship with her father-in-law and comments made by him.

Similarly, a few days, Jadeja had shared a post on social media where he called the interview by his father as ‘meaningless and false’.

Through an Instagram post, Jadeja revealed, “The things mentioned in the dubious interview with Divya Bhaskar are meaningless and false. Those are one-sided comments that I deny them. The attempt to tarnish the image of my wife is improper and condemnable. I too, have a lot to say but it is better that I don’t reveal those things in public.”

Worth mentioning, Jadeja’s father during an interview had revealed that his son and daughter-in-law were living separately and hardly had any contact with him.

“I have absolutely no relation with Jadeja and his wife. We don’t call them, and they don’t call us. The issues started after two or three months of their marriage,” he stated.

“I currently live alone in Jamnagar, while Ravindra resides in a separate bungalow of his own. He lives in the same city, but I don’t get to see him. I don’t know what magic his wife has done on him,” he further added.

“I wish I hadn’t got him married. It would have been even better if I hadn’t made him a cricketer,” he was quoted as saying.
