I supported Asif 'emotionally', 'financially', want my money back: Veena Malik

Posted By: Staff

Lahore, Mar.9 (ANI): Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Asif's estranged girl friend Veena Malik, a noted film and TV actress, has claimed that she had supported Asif both 'emotionally' and 'financially' during his bad days, and now she at least wants her money back.

Malik has sued Asif for recovery of 3.4 million rupees.

"When he (Asif) was banned from cricket and when no one was willing to support or help him I stood by his side and I gave him money which he said he would pay me back when things improved," Malik.

"Now that his situation is better he is trying to avoid meeting his commitment but I want my money back, it is my hard earned money," she added.

Malik also claimed that Asif had proposed her on Valentine's Day but she had refused as she wanted to concentrate on her career.

Meanwhile, Asif has rubbished Malik's allegations.

"She supported me a lot but this money business is not correct," The Daily Times quoted Asif, as saying.

Asif was romantically linked to Malik, and there were rumours last year that both got secretly married in London, which has been denied by both of them.

However, Asif got married to a girl from Lahore, Hina, recently.

According to sources, Asif had assured Malik of marriage once his cricket career was back on track and he was selected in the Pakistan team.

"Veena kept on giving Asif money during his turbulent period. She had to sell her house in Islamabad, a couple of residential plots and gold jewelry to help Asif come out of the mess in which he was," sources said.

"She was madly in love with him, but he dumped her and married someone else. Veena has documentary proof of the money she was giving to Asif for the last two years," the sources added. (ANI)
