Seems like their wedding ended with ‘Game of Misfortune/Unluck’!
Mangaluru: It was 3 January 2019, me and my friend stepped on to the stage to wish Tollywood star Couple Ester Noronha and Noel Sean a “Happy and Long Married Life’, at the end of their grand wedding reception held at Milagres College Open Air ground, Hampankatta, Mangaluru. There was lots of music and dancing, filled with fun and frolic- and while the family members/relatives/friends from the boy’s side left early on that night since they had to travel back to Hyderabad/Telangana early next day morning, but we locals partied hard, joined by the newlywed couple. Unfortunately, it seems like our “Happy and Long Married Life” wishes to the newly married couple didn’t work- since Ester and Noel, 20 months after wedlock, announced their divorce by mutual consent, on Monday, 1 September 2020.

It is also learnt that they got separated within a few days after marriage and had filed for mutual divorce in June 2019. In separate statements, Noel Sean and Ester Noronha wrote that they separated last year, and filed for divorce by mutual consent sometime after that. On Monday, 1 September 2020, the couple were granted a divorce and they were “waiting for the court’s decision to make it public.” Noel Sean wrote, “We had our differences which led to this and finally we decided to end this only to save the grace of this beautiful relationship… I request everyone to be supportive of this at this point of time and help us to heal from it. It will always be a beautiful phase of my life and I thank God for each and every day in it.”. Adding to this, Noel wrote to Ester saying, “God bless you Ester and may all your dreams come true, wishing you nothing but the best.”
The actress also shared a lengthy post on her (unverified) Instagram, in which she “answered the most frequently asked question to me in the last one year.” She wrote,
Finally… Here’s the answer to the most frequently asked question to me in the last 1 year… which many of you have speculated, guessed and even discussed the comments of my posts for a very long time now and are eagerly waiting for my response or confirmation…”
“YES. WE ARE OFFICIALLY DIVORCED”
“I’ve been patiently waiting to do this for more than a year now… but didn’t want to do so before it was legal and official. Noel and I got married on the 3rd of January 2019 and soon after we had several irreconcilable compatibility issues due to which we had separated within a few days and finally filed for a MUTUAL DIVORCE in June 2019. Since then it has been a quiet, patient wait until yesterday when our plea got finally granted by the court. I have always been frank and honest as far as sharing with you all is concerned. But in this situation, I’d prefer to only say this much for the good of all the people involved in our lives, Noel’s and mine…I request you all to understand the sensitivity of the subject and my intention behind this decision and hope you’ll respect it and be with me on this one too like you always have”.
“We all are human… have gone through and are going through various ups and downs in our lives… we all have our share of failed relationships and we know exactly how complicated and stressful it is to deal with…The last thing expected in such times is judgements, any kind of negativity, questions or any more added discomfort. So I kindly request you all to consider this as my ONLY AND FINAL statement/clarification on this subject and that no other forms of questions, interviews, media attention, comments, discussion in any form real or virtual shall be entertained by me. This is all I have to say. Thank you for understanding, being there, for all the love, support, kindness, prayers and blessings for which I am ever-so-grateful and will always be. Keep me in prayers. Much love. God bless”.
