Model Rhea Pillai has filed a case of domestic violence and harassment against her estranged live-in partner ace tennis player Leander Paes and his father in a Mumbai metropolitan magistrate court.
“Pillai has filed a case of domestic violence against Paes, his father Vece Paes and has sought monthly maintenance of about Rs. 4 lakh,” Paes’ advocate Pervez Memon said on Sunday.
The case, filed on Saturday, is likely to come up for hearing on June 30, he said.
The couple has already been fighting for the custody of their eight-year-old daughter.
Ms. Pillai, in her complaint, has accused Paes’ father of preventing her and her daughter from entering their Carter Road residence.
She has also sought blocking of any transfer of property to any ‘third party’.
Paes had last month filed ‘a guardianship petition’ in the family court here seeking permanent custody of his daughter from Ms. Pillai.
