In her application, there is also a mention of the Slam Tour episode. Singh had begun have getting bouts of paranoia, blackouts, and confusion. He refused to go on stage to perform. Talwar has said that at that time he suffered anxiety attacks and while he was in his hotel room, she tried to calm him down and suggested he rest for a while and then go on stage as it was a professional commitment. However, she adds, Singh turned around, hit her and hurled abuses at her.
She has alleged that Singh used to get paid in cash but she was not made privy to the money. If Talwar’s estimation is correct, Singh would earn close to Rs 4 crore a month from songs, performances and royalties. It is around that time he got addicted to alcohol, drugs, and anabolic drugs.
