After four years of dating, just when there were rumours of Yuvraj Singh and Kim Sharma being ready to walk down the aisle, the country was shocked by the news of the couple drifting apart. While many sections blamed Yuvraj Singh's mother, Shabnam Singh, of being the reason behind this, many claimed the truth was something else. As per a TOI report, it was Kim Sharma's abusive and possessive behaviour that made Yuvraj Singh call off the relationship. Yuvraj's mother, Shabnam Singh said that though her son discusses everything with her, when it comes to marriage he is bound to do what's best for him and she would let him take his own call. Kim Sharma never came out in the open to talk about the affair or the break-up.
