Former Auburn deputy mayor Salim Mehajer has always remained a protagonist in controversies, and this time, he plays a supporting role while the main controversy surrounds Aysha Mehajer, his wife.
If reports are to be believed, Mehajer’s wife has removed all couple pictures from her social media accounts and indicated her separation from her husband. On the other hand, the social media platform used by the ex-deputy mayor is full of photos of his wife.
Aysha, who is now publicly known by her maiden surname Learmonth, has remained out of the public sight for a long time. She has reportedly left her husband’s house and fled interstate. However, she started being in the limelight once again by actively using her Instagram account. The couple married in 2015, and their first wedding anniversary will fall just a week after the incident.
In July, police took Mehajer under custody in the wake of interrogating him after an alleged complaint filed against him by his wife. During the procedure, the former deputy mayor blamed police officials of having filed a fake case in the name of his wife. Police filed an Apprehended Violence Order (AVO) on behalf of Mehajer’s wife in the name of Aysha Learmonth.
According to the order, the ex-political personality must not be seen within 50 meters of the alleged victim’s home or office. He also cannot harass, stalk or assault his wife in any manner, according to the AVO.
Mehajer was criticized for having extravagant arrangements in his wedding with the former beautician. He jammed streets and disturbed public life to make the ceremony a grand one. Going through the latest video uploaded by Mehajer where the couple is featured skiing gives the feeling that it is a temporary separation between the two and they would get back together in the future.
On the other hand, the removal of the former Auburn deputy mayor’s pictures by his wife gives a different message—as if she had never known the person. Following the filing of the AVO by Learmonth, Mehajer talked to News.com.au where he said that “only death will do us part.”
