This is not first time Radha has been embroiled in a controversy. In November 2013, she accused Chennai entrepreneur Faizul of refusing to marry her after being in a live-in relationship with her for six years. She has claimed then that Faizul had taken sleazy picture of her in compromising positions and had also burrowed a large sum of money as well.
