Actress Fasha Sandha and her husband Rizal Ashram Ramli have divorced after less than four years of marriage.
The union ended after Rizal, also known as Jejai, pronounced the talak satu (divorce pronouncement) at the Syariah High Court here yesterday.
Fasha, 31, had on Jan 18 filed for divorce in the same court.
The couple, who married on April 27, 2012, have two children together â€“ two-year-old Putra Rayfal and Putri Raysha Jemyma, aged one.
According to mStar Online, Rizal, a businessman, was accompanied by a friend and was seen sobbing when he exited Syarie judge Muhamad Abdul Karim Wahabâ€™s chambers before leaving the court grounds.
Fasha declined to comment when approached by reporters but later released a statement saying that the divorce was the best course of action for both parties.
She added that she had tried to save the marriage.
â€œI am redha (agreeable) with the divorce, and will move on with my two children,â€ she said.
Earlier, Fasha arrived at the court at around 2.15pm with actress-singer Farahdhiya and friend Rita Sosilawati, the director of beauty products company Nouvelles Visages, while Rizal arrived 10 minutes later.
Rizal, the son of a former Perak mentri besar, was previously married to actress Nora Danish, 33, but they divorced in July 2008, two years after they tied the knot.
He has a son from that marriage â€“ seven-year-old Putra Rayqal.
