Anoushka Shankar has called it quits on her marriage

The website Page Six has reported that sitarist Anoushka Shankar is parting ways with her husband and filmmaker Joe Wright. The couple have reportedly given out a statement through Wright’s representative, which says:

“I can confirm that Joe Wright and Anoushka Shankar recently ended their marriage. All parties are committed to the welfare and happiness of their two beautiful children and ask that their privacy be respected. No further comments will be made on this matter.”
Statement from Anoushka Shankar & Joe Wright via a rep

Anoushka, daughter of the legendary sitarist, Ravi Shankar, and Joe got married in London in 2010 with close friends and family in attendance and they have two children.

A few months back, Anoushka had posted a photograph with Joe on Instagram with a loving note remembering their marriage anniversary.

Just a few days back, Anoushka posted another message that probably reflected her state of mind again, which might inspire a new album.

I said I loved you, and you heard me sayyou were not enough…you asked me to hold you tighter, and I heard you say I was not enough…how could we be enough for each otherwhen we were never enough for ourselves? -new album idea scribblings #lyrics #newmusic #latenights
