It was reported that Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra"s marriage is on rocks but the couple is having a good laugh over it, as they are very much together. The grapevine is abuzz with the news that Raj Kundra, who has been visiting a London-based hair transplant clinic, gifted the assistant of the clinic with a European holiday after which she never returned. However, the couple cleared the rumours by saying that it was a handy work of some jealous people.
“The rumour is so ridiculous that we are not even interested in clarifying it. We are currently holidaying in the USA and all we've done is laugh over the rumour. But the poor assistant was so upset when the reports came out that she called us in panic, fretting about how she would face her family and friends! I think people are just envious of our happiness and the fact that we still love each as much as we did when we got married. The doctor has been planting gossip about us because his assistant left him to join Raj — something that upset him a lot. I've met the assistant in Dubai and she's a very sweet girl," Times of India quoted Shilpa as saying.
Raj Kundra also said that the reports of their split are rubbish. “It's a false story spread by the doctor of the clinic the girl used to work in. He's extremely miffed that his assistant left him to work for me, and so he's been spreading rubbish. Also the doctor, his clinic and the girl are based in Dubai, not London," he said.
He went on to say that he just tried to help the doctor"s assistant, who was looking for a job. “When I first met the doctor at his clinic, he started boasting about his powerful clients (including politicians, B-Town stars and businessmen). I found that strange as client confidentiality is very important in such things. When I asked one of his assistants to recommend someone as my Executive Assistant to accompany me on my trips, she told me she was looking for a job as she wanted to leave the clinic. I said I would offer her a full-time job after a month's trial and took her on. She was good so I hired her. She's been working for me for the last three months," he concluded.
