In an unexpected turn of events, a man claiming to be internet sensation Qandeel Baloch’s husband came forward live on television on Wednesday.

The event was shortly followed by Baloch admitting she was indeed married and even had a child from her marriage to the man.

“My husband used to beat me up,” she said while speaking to Express News. The actor’s confession came after her former husband, Aashiq Hussain, claimed to the media he was earlier married to Baloch.

Baloch admitted she had a son with Hussain. However, she added, “He never told my child I am his mother. It was a forced marriage.”

Speaking to Express News, Hussain refuted Baloch’s claims and said it was a love marriage. “I still have letters which she wrote with her blood,” he said.

“She wanted a car and bungalow from me,” Hussain added.

“I never contacted Aashiq Hussain after the divorce,” Baloch said. “I took a divorce because I wanted to study further and work but I was forcibly married.”

“He tortured me day and night during the one year I was married to him,” Baloch said while speaking to The Express Tribune. “After a year, I ran away with my son and sought refuge in Darul Aman,” she continued. However, the social media sensation said her son fell sick and she could not afford treatment so she was forced to give his custody to Hussain.

“I will fight for my son now.”

The social media startlet aid she was married when she was 17 years old to a man hailing from Kot Addu.

Last month, Senior Civil Judge Khursheed Ahmad summoned model Qandeel Baloch to court at a hearing on a petition filed by a lawyer. Advocate Shahbaz Ali Khan Gurmani, the petitioner, said that Baloch had brought ‘shame’ to the Baloch race by adopting the surname. He said she had no ties to the Baloch race.

Qandeel Baloch can be part of Ruet-e-Hilal Committee, says JUI-F senator

Separately, Gadai union council vice chairman Fayyaz Khan Leghari of Dera Ghazi Khan sent model Baloch a legal notice on Monday demanding that she apologise for ‘bringing shame’ to the Baloch race, stop using Baloch as her surname and pay him Rs50 million. “Otherwise, strict action will be taken against you”, says the legal notice (a copy of which is available with The Express Tribune).

Receiving life-threatening calls from Mufti Qawi, claims Qandeel Baloch

The notice said Baloch’s legal name was Fauzia Azeem. It alleges that she has been working along a certain ‘agenda’ and is not of Baloch ethnicity.

Recently, Mufti Qawi’s Ruet-e-Hilal Committee membership was suspended  for taking selfies with Qandeel Baloch. The move came after a video of the Ruet-e-Hilal Committee member with the self proclaimed actor and singer went viral on social media.

Baloch became famous through her tireless self-promotion and suggestive “selfies” posted on social media, amassing tens of thousands of followers.

Facebook temporarily removes Qandeel Baloch’s official fan page

On Valentine’s Day, Baloch donned a plunging scarlet dress and posted a message defying the country’s president, who had issued a stern warning against the “Western” holiday.

“They can stop people from going out, but they can’t stop people from loving,” she declared in a Facebook video, going on to branding politicians “idiotic and disgusting”.

Baloch is derided and feted in equal measure in Pakistan, but the message appeared to tap into the frustrations of many young people tired of being told how to behave — the footage has been viewed more than 830,000 times, and garnered 7,000 likes and counting.

    People do crazy stuff to get out of this country in pursuit of a better life. I mean anything. By any means necessary. I think QB took a chance, got fame by hook or by crook, and now claiming fear for her life, will eventually move out of this country. Great Job QB. Recommend

    Recently When news of Imran Khan getting married for the third time surfaced then everyone was stating that it is a personal affair of Mr Khan and we have no right to talk on this issue. But my question is that if marriage and divorce is a personal matter of Imran Khan then why this definition do not apply on Baloch’s and other cases.?
    Why a personal matter of One girl is such a sensation.? Recommend

    Is this a matter of great national importance that has to overshadow news like Mr. Edhi’s demise, floods, and other calamities people are facing in Pakistan. Is it that, the fortune of poor people of Pakistan depends on her is she is proven guilty or innocent in the on-going soap opera she has enacted through her shenanigans in the electronic, print and social media. She is trying for cheap publicity and wanting to stay in the news one way or another. This should be stopped specially after what she did with Maulana Qavi. Pemra or any of its counterpart organization should take notice and ban her from being mentioned by any kind of media in Pakistan including print media. Enough is enough.Recommend

    I don’t agree with what she does publicly, but we have to admit that she has a great amount of courage and ambition. Rising up from a backward area, with minimum prospects, to becoming a media sensation is quite a feat.Recommend

    It’s likely that she’s working on an foreign agenda being promoted by our neighbor country through its rape infested society and abysmal treatment of women. Qandeel is just a mindset developed in our society through the neighboring media. Time we sent qandeel to india to further strengthen their culture. Recommend
