Ramalath, wife of Prabhu Deva changed to her name as Latha after her marriage with Prabhu Deva on 8 September, 1995 as per Hindu traditions. The Pair had three sons, one of the sons passed away due to cancer.
And while it was told from Nayantharas close circle that Latha had agreed for divorce and had given ok for prabhus second marriage with Nayan, after she had agreed for settlement of Rs 3,85,00,000
But today Latha has filed a petition with a family court in Chennai seeking to direct Prabhu Deva to live with her. She also alleged in her plea that Prabhu Deva has not been taking care of the family after he allegedly fell in love with Nayantara after he started directing the movie ‘Villu’. And also alleged that she found a sea change in her husband’s attitude towards her and their sons from then on. Recently a Mumbai based magazine carried my husband’s interview in which he was quoted as saying that he would marry Nayantara soon.” Stating that Prabhu Deva had stopped coming to the house and neglecting their children, she urged the court to direct Prabhu Deva to live with her.
Latha further stated in her petition that Nayantara has been spreading rumours that she had offered her (Latha) Rs 3.85 crore and jewels to divorce Prabhu Deva and also agreed for their marriage. It has affected me a lot, she has said in the petition.
