Actor John Abraham has dismissed rumours about his divorce with wife Priya Runchal and asserted that he is having a beautiful marital "paradise".

Rumours of John Abraham divorcing his wife Priya Runchal have been making the rounds since the last few days, but the actor has emphatically denied it.

"All is superb in paradise, to set the record straight. Everything is beautiful in paradise. It is not true. You believe all that crap. I just feel bad when people put out things. All is beautiful in my paradise," Press Trust of India quoted John Abraham as saying.

John Abraham, who will next be seen in a comedy film "Welcome Back", added: "I was doing a comedy film but I did not know that comedy was happening outside my life. Just put all this rumours to rest. There is nothing happening. It's all superb."

The actor stated that his silence is often misunderstood as his weakness.

"It is difficult because you are trying to explain your point of view sometimes to people. John Abraham is always silent. And because he is quiet, the silence is often mistaken for his weakness," said John Abraham.

"I believe in being quiet because I feel that is dignified. I keep quiet but unfortunately I also see a lot of negative press sometimes around me and that is very disparaging and discouraging. I feel I don't deserve it and no one in my family deserves it. Just because no one speaks doesn't mean you can go out and say anything you want," he added.

John Abraham and Priya Runchal got married last year and reports suggest that the two are living separately since the last few months as Priya Runchal is pursuing higher studies in the US and John Abraham is busy shooting for his films in India.
