Former actress-turned-social crusader Somy Ali has recalled her relationship with the actor Salman Khan and accused him of physically abusing her.
Somy Ali, a former actress who is now a social activist and was also Salman Khan’s ex-girlfriend, frequently speaks out about suffering physical abuse from him while they were together.
Somy Ali has been sharing on social media about the domestic violence she has experienced due to Salman Khan. But somehow she deleted those posts in the past, but now she has given the reasons why she deleted those posts and also said that “the eight years spent with him were the worst years of my entire existence.”
Pointing at the questions being asked about the deletion of those posts, she writes, “Yes, because I had used profanity and my anger got the best of me. As the executive director of an NGO, it did not sit well with me to have profane posts on my social media. Thus, I deleted them.”

There are times when you posted and then deleted the post.. Can you please share the reason behind it?
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.
* What happened between Somy Ali and Salman Khan — this is one question that everyone is asking. Can you please share the answer?
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 also spoke up about the reason: “What took you so long to come out and talk about what you went through with Salman Khan?”
“This is not breaking news by any means. Rummage through any tabloid or a film magazine from the early 90’s to 1999 and you will read articles about Somy being physically abused by Salman,” she said.
After Somy Ali, Salman Khan was linked to actresses like Sangeeta Bijlani, Katrina Kaif and Aishwarya Rai, who is now married to Abhishek Bachchan. Salman Khan is rumoured to have been dating model Iulia Vantur currently.
