Star is reporting his need for approval may come from his parent’s nasty divorce when he was 3 years old. His Hare Krishna father, Vasudeva Malakar, 44, filed for divorce from their mother, Jillian Recchi, 41, in October of 1992, the mag reports, leading to hard times for Sanjaya and his sister Shyamali. Their parents had been separated for a year before the filing, with Jillian and the kids living off $531 a month in welfare in a Seattle apartment while their suburban home was up for sale.
