Singer-composer Honey Singh on September 17 told a Delhi metropolitan magistrate court that he would not create third-party rights of the assets owned by him and his companies in the United Arab Emirates. The court then vacated the status quo order issued on September 15, restraining Honey Singh from creating third-party rights of the immovable and movable assets owned by him or his companies in the United Arab Emirates, based on an application filed by his wife, Shalini Talwar. The wife told the court that Honey had purchased a villa in Dubai for her and had executed a general power of attorney in 2019, giving her rights and control over all his assets in the UAE. The court had on September 15 also directed Honey to file all the documents of his companies registered abroad along with other details. The same was not filed on 17th by Honey Singh.

Senior advocate Rebecca John, appearing for Honey Singh, submitted that a court of law hearing a domestic matter cannot pass an order pertaining to a company. It was also argued that a restraint on the business cannot be created. After due arguments, magistrate Tania Singh recorded the assurance/statement of the counsel appearing for Honey Singh to the effect that he will not create any third party rights/sell his property in the UAE, and will also file the company documents and on this assurance, accordingly vacated the status quo order issued on the last date of hearing. The next date of hearing is September 28.

Shalini Talwar has filed a complaint against husband Honey Singh under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act.
