In what can be termed shocking, RJD leader Tej Pratap Yadav’s wife revealed that the Yadav scion is a drug addict. Aishwarya Rai made the allegation in a reply filed in the court in connection with her divorce with the RJD leader. She added that Lalu’s son often dressed up like Radha, Krishna and Shiva under the influence of drugs and claimed himself to be avatar of Hindu deities.

“Tej used to dress up like Lord Radha and Krishna. Soon after my wedding I discovered that he used to dress up like god and goddesses. Not only this, once after consuming drugs, Tej wore a 'Ghagra' (long skirt) and 'Choli' (blouse) and dressed up like goddess Radha, he also wore make up and a hair vig”, Aishwarya said in her complaint.

She reiterated that all her efforts to bring the matter to her in-laws’ notice went in vain. “I did talk to my mother-in-law and sister-in-law regarding Tej Pratap’s behaviour and they assured that he would not behave in such manner any more….my in-laws consoled me emotionally but Tej Pratap’s behaviour did not change at all”, said Aishwarya.

Recently, Tej Pratap hogged limelight due to reports of rift with his younger brother Tejaswi. He had expressed dissatisfaction over Tejashwi's decision to not field candidates of his choice from the Sheohar and Jehanabad Lok Sabha. 

However, he later rebuffed reports of any rift between him and his brother Tejashwi, the leader of opposition in the Bihar Assembly. "There is no rift between me and my brother. I challenge anyone who can prove that. In fact, my blessings are always with him and I will follow whatever my father tells me to... In fact, I have always stood like a shield whenever someone tried to attack my brother," he had said.
