On Friday, a BBC report said that Mallika and her French “husband” were facing eviction from their Paris apartment. The couple reportedly owed their landlord 80,000 euros (Rs 64 lakh approx) in rent and that a court in Paris was scheduled to give its verdict soon, it said.
The flat is located in the upscale 16th Arrondissement area of Paris, and the news of the reported eviction spread like wildfire on the internet, with many French, British and Indian online news portals picking it up.
However, Mallika denied the story, according to Mumbai Mirror. “I do not live in Paris, neither do I own an apartment there nor rent one. I do not know why my name is being dragged into this,” she fumed, continuing, “I am in Mumbai now. Before this, I was in Los Angeles with my family. Anybody who does not believe me can check my Instagram and Twitter posts for themselves.”
