Is Karan Johar standing for Rhea Pillai

Leander Paes recently filed a petition at a family court seeking custody of his six-year-old daughter from Rhea Pillai. The ace tennis player alleged that Rhea is an irresponsible mother. But friend Karan Johar has stood firmly by Rhea’s side, at least that’s what KJo’s recent tweets suggest

Leander Paes might have branded Rhea Pillai as irresponsible parent, but Rhea’s good friend Karan Johar showcased his support for the former model turned life coach. Its’ no secret now that Leander Paes, who has been in a live-in-relationship with Rhea for a while now, recently filed a petition at a family court in suburban Bandra seeking custody of their six-year-old daughter.

The petition accuses Rhea of being an irresponsible parent, not caring for the child, being self-indulgent and having a volatile temper. The complaint also alleges that Rhea has cheated on Leander Paes with a young cricketer. In the wake of this incident Karan Johar decided to show his support for the friend. “Rhea is the most loving,loyal and wonderful friend,mother and partner…have known her for over 2 decades..recent reportage is unwarranted,” tweeted KJo

The Koffee With Karan host further added, “Sad that sometimes you have to stand and defend goodness. I appreciate the media’s need to report..I wish it came with a little sensitivity.”
