Former actress Somy Ali has once again opened up about her relationship with Salman Khan. Somy dated Salman during the 90s and who then reportedly left her for Aishwarya Rai. Somy alleges that even during their relationship, Salman had several flings and he justified it by saying, “I am a man and only men can cheat not women.”
In an Instagram post, Somy wrote, “The eight years spent with him were the worst years of my entire existence. In addition to tons of affairs and flings he would constantly belittle me by calling me ugly, stupid and dumb. Not a day went by that he wouldn’t make me feel worthless and small. He would not acknowledge me as his girlfriend in public for years and when he finally did he would insult me in front of his friends and berate me nonstop. I have no qualms in saying that given his treatment of me I chose to have affairs which essentially defined as a search for someone who would care for me and love me. Someone who would not insult me and would actually be nice to me. Unfortunately, I was unaware that these men were simply using me and I was building a future with each affair while I was simply being used.
“When Salman learned of these affairs he had the guts to after beating me saying that I am a man and only men can cheat not women. I was aghast at that statement and the sexism that reeked from it. Let’s not forget that just because Salman or anyone else is nice to you, they are the same with others. I had it the worst in terms of verbal, sexual and physical abuse,” she further wrote.
In the past Somy has several times posted about Salman Khan accusing him of domestic violence and cheating. However, she deleted those posts after some time. Reacting to this, she said, “Yes, because I had used profanity and my anger got the best of me. As an executive director of an NGO, it did not sit well with me to have profane posts on my social media. Thus, I deleted them.”
