Queer influencers Anjali and Sufi shock fans by calling off wedding following “infidelity”

A pair of popular lesbian influencers shocked their followers yesterday by calling off their upcoming wedding. They were candid over the reason pointing to infidelity.

Anjali Chakra and Sufi Malik (right and left above) and an Indian-Pakistani couple from New York and San Francisco. The two women began dating in 2018 after connecting on Tumblr. They went viral in 2019 when they posted a first-anniversary photo of themselves in traditional South Asian attire.

Last year they got engaged with a proposal at the Empire State Building when Sufi got down on one knee. A few months later, Anjali proposed back.

They’ve since been keeping fans informed of their wedding plans and answering questions about their relationship.

Therefore, followers were left reeling by postings yesterday. Anjali announced the end of the relationship on her Instagram.


Anjali said, “This may come as a shock, but our journey is now shifting. We have decided to call off our wedding and end our relationship due to infidelity committed by Sufi.

“As we close this chapter, I wish for absolutely no negativity to be shown towards Sufi, and that you respect this difficult decision. What we have shared has been so full of love and nothing short of magical — I will choose to remember it this way.”

The post has garnered 55,000 likes at the time of writing.

Sufi posted her own message to her own Instagram.


“I made an unrecognisable mistake of betrayal by cheating on her a few weeks before our wedding. I’ve hurt her tremendously, beyond my understanding.

“I am owning up to my mistake and will continue to do so. I understand the gravity of the situation and can only ask for forgiveness, from Anjali and Allah.

“I’ve hurt the people I care about the most through my actions, including our family and friends; our community who I cherish. Thank you so much to everyone who supported us all these years, we owe everything to you all. We ask you all for privacy and respect at this time.”

Sufi disabled comments on her post. On Anjali’s post, followers expressed shock, upset, and sympathy. Some were perplexed as to why the couple felt the need to share about the cheating.

“I believe there was no need to disclose the reason that would inevitably lead to Sufi’s mass character assassination based on Islamophobia and homophobia,” said one. “No matter how much your fans loved you, none of us ‘deserve’ to know.”

Others admired the couple’s honesty.

“Your love radiates so much love even through this BREAKUP post…. Which makes me cry. Then seeing Sufi’s message full of regret, her not even recognizing her own actions…. Also made me cry. I’m so sorry you’re both hurting right now.”

Mainly, followers wished both women well.

“Been following you long before the move and not one to idolise celebrities, but I truly looked up to you guys,” said another follower. “[I’m] Realising you are human after all. Please don’t let our expectations get you. You are human, please deal with it as you are able to. You don’t owe us anything. Thank you for the hope and for showing us the possibilities for queer love and for the humanness anyway.”
