Hell has no fury like a woman scorned and after Shoaib Malik, another top Pakistani cricketer Mohammad Asif is learning it the hard way as he has been taken to court by a former lover over a financial dispute.
While Shoaib has managed to get out of his marriage controversy with Indian girl Ayesha Siddiqui in Hyderabad, Asif is in trouble with his former girlfriend, actress Veena Malik.
Veena has served a legal notice on Asif after two cheques he gave her to settle an outstanding money dispute bounced.
"He gave me two cheques amounting to 11.3 million rupees as part of an agreement to clear an amount of nearly 18 million rupees that he owes me," Veena said.
"But both cheques bounced and I had no alternate but to send him the legal notice as he is not even taking our calls now," she added.
Veena demanded her money back from Asif after he recently entered into wedlock with another girl chosen by his family.
The news of the marriage stung Veena who had been going steady with Asif for more than a year and claims to have stood by him in his most difficult period of life when he was serving a ban for a doping offence.
"He had promised me that once he returned to play for Pakistan he would clear up my money but unfortunately he has not done that," she said.
"The cheques that bounced were for payments of Rs 3.9 and rs 7.4 million each," she said.
Shoaib, who is in India to wed tennis star Sania Mirza, was making headlines after being accused of marrying and dumping Ayesha without divorce.
The dispute was finally settled when Shoaib gave Ayesha a divorce yesterday despite maintaining all along that he never committed himself to the girl who was making these allegations.
