Paba ( Upeksha Swarnamali ) files for divorce
Actress-parliamentarian Upeksha Swarnamali (Paba) has filed for divorce from her husband Walawegamage Mahesh Chaminda.
In the case filed in the Colombo district court, she claims Chaminda earns a monthly income of around Rs. 400,000, and seeks a Rs. 20 million compensation.
Mrs. Swarnamali alleges that her husband, whom she had married in August 2009 after a four-year affair, has a very bad temper and has brutally assaulted her on the day after the marriage.
He continues to abuse her both mentally and physically and a surgery had to be performed for injuries suffered in a recent assault, making the marriage unpleasant, she charges.
