John-Bips Break-up Expose
Bollywood is still reeling from the shocking news of the breakup between John Abraham and Bipasha Basu, who shared a committed relationship for over 10 years. Although no reason was originally provided for the breakup, which occurred in February, it seems the couple is finally ready to share their story.
According to a source close to the couple, the relationship ended because Bips felt John had become complacent in their relationship: “ten years is not a short time. Other couples would have settled down ages ago, but they obviously wanted to focus on their careers and make money. Unfortunately, over the last two years, Bipasha was increasingly frustrated with John’s attitude towards their relationship. She felt he had started taking her for granted, and this really hurt her.”
Jealousy also played a part, John, it seems, was growing more insecure in the relationship. It’s reported that he didn’t appreciate Bips’ efforts to land a role with Salman. The jealousy got so bad that John actually confronted Salman and despite public statements no animosity exists between the two stars, it’s still widely believed they despise each other. “It’s difficult to maintain a relationship in this industry,” says a friend. “There are always rumours circulating about inappropriate behavior with star-struck new actors. There were accusations. They yelled, cried, and threw things. They wouldn’t listen to their friends, so we just had to leave it.”
John and Bipasha both respected the break-up. Reportedly, they only began talking once everything was resolved. It was obvious when John recently appeared solo on Koffee with Karan that they were done, but he respected Bipasha’s feelings and only disclosed the breakup to close friends. Now with Bips getting close to Josh Hartnett, it seems the time was right to share the truth and move forward.
With the breakup over and done with, both stars seem to be enjoying their newfound status as singles. While break-ups in the movie industry aren’t that unusual, it’s sad for fans to witness the end of a long-term relationship. Hopefully, Cupid will strike true for both stars next time round.
