Shrien Dewani who was accused of wife's murder on honeymoon posts picture with new boyfriend
The millionaire care home owner, who was accused of masterminding the murder of his 28-year-old wife, walked free in 2014 after pleading not guilty.
Murder-accused millionaire Shrien Dewani has found love with his new boyfriend after four years of being absolved from the charges of being complicit in his wife's murder. Although the new couple appears happy, the family of Anni Dewani — who was killed on her honeymoon — is in pain today as new pictures of Shrien Dewani and his Brazilian-born boyfriend are doing the rounds.
The latest pictures of 38-year-old Dewani show him enjoying holidays in Ibiza and India with his photographer boyfriend Gledison Lopez Martins. The millionaire even confirmed their relationship on the internet, according to reports.
Anni's father, Vinod Hindocha, while talking to the Daily Mail, said, "He has been to Mumbai with his boyfriend and that hurts us greatly. That was the place that Anni married him. I would have thought that he would keep that place in his heart especially for that memory."
The millionaire care homeowner, who was accused of masterminding the murder of his wife, walked free in 2014 after pleading not guilty. His wife, a 28-year-old Swedish-raised engineer, was gunned down during a robbery in South Africa while the duo was on their honeymoon, weeks after their wedding. Reports state that on the first day of the trial, Anni's family heard him confess to paying male prostitutes for sex and admitted that he was bisexual.
Anni's family said that their daughter would have never married Dewani only if she knew of his sexuality, which he reportedly hid from her and her family.
"He kept his gay secret from my daughter and from the family. How could he have had it in his heart to do that? It was an utter disgrace. Now I learn that he has fallen for another man. That is no surprise. I am not against gay people in any way at all. Just this man," Hindocha said.
"He has been to Mumbai with his boyfriend and that hurts us greatly. That was the place that Anni married him. He goes there with his gay lover and parades him around. I hate that day he married her. And I’ll never be able to see Mumbai with the same eyes," Anni's father continued.
"He was even looking at gay websites while I sat in the hotel having gone to South Africa to help him and bring Anni’s body home. We will never get Anni back and we will never recover from agreeing her marriage to this man. We miss her every minute of every day," he added.
Reports state that Dewani has been in a relationship with the Brazilian-born photographer for nearly 18 months and that the businessman's family — who had no clue about his sexuality when he marries Anni — have grown to accept their son's new boyfriend. Dewani's boyfriend was reportedly invited to his family home for Christmas last year.
