Mumbai: After tying the knot on reality show ‘Bigg Boss’, TV stars Sara Khan and Ali Merchant are now heading towards splitsville. The couple that got hitched inside the ‘Bigg Boss’ house amid much pomp and show is now reported to be separated. And even though the two are not contemplating divorce as of now, it is reported that they have had a bitter separation.

Confirming the news a source told a daily, "Ever since the ‘Bidaai’ actress made an exit from ‘Bigg Boss’, she had been squabbling with her hubby over monetary issues. This led to a huge showdown as Sara felt Ali had squandered her earnings. Sara who is now shooting for ‘Ram Milaayi Jodi’ was shocked to know that Ali had turned extra extravagant when she was away in the house.”

“A few days ago, they had a massive argument leading to a bitter fight with Sara telling him to leave their Lokhandwala home. Ali has since then been staying with his parents," adds the source.

Sara`s official spokesperson confirms, "It`s a personal matter but yes it`s true. Sara and Ali are not together anymore. After she got back from the ‘Bigg Boss’ house she found out a lot of things and was hurt and she took this decision. That`s all we can say."

However, Ali is going all out to blame Sara’s family for the rift, "Yes, I am not staying with her. But it is not due to any problems between us. It is because of her family members who still do not accept me. I want to win their approval and then live with Sara. I need time to win them over and I feel it is better I am not with Sara for the moment."
