And unlike Hrithik-Sussanne, most of the divorces are ugly which often lead to custody cases. Here’s the list of 6 Celebrity Couples who fought for the custody of their kids:

Sanjay Kapur and Karisma Kapoor’s marriage had an ugly ending. After the separation, Sanjay filed a petition in court for both the kids- Kiaan and Samaira. Their fight went public when Sanjay told the media that he was forced to take this step because Karisma did not allow him to meet their children.

After the court’s suggestion, the couple came to an agreement that Karisma would have the custody of kids while Sanjay was provided with the visitation rights.

2- Kamal Hassan and Sarika:
