When Honey Singh isolated himself from the world, for more than a year, there were reports that he was in a Chandigarh rehab, getting treated for his drug addiction. However, his wife had slammed the reports of drug addiction that began to do the rounds. She said:
“These are baseless stories. Honey is genuinely not well and is in recovery mode. He has never been a drug addict. He is yet not fit enough to defend himself. This man who calls himself ‘Yo’, whose real name is Sachin Pathak, has worked with Honey for the Marathi lyrics for the song Aata Majhi Satakli and has met Honey for that once or twice. He has not met Honey after that. He neither knows Honey nor is a part of the group. Such baseless stories hurt him and us, as his family. Honey and I last went to Chandigarh in August for a religious visit.”
