Amir Khan, Faryal Makhdoom part ways

Published: August 4, 2017


British-Pakistani boxer Amir Khan and wife Faryal Makhdoom have decided to split, the sportsman has announced.

“So me and the wife Faryal have agreed to split. I’m currently in Dubai. Wish her all the best,” he tweeted on Friday.

While Faryal had a bitter feud with her in-laws last year, the reason for the separation is said to be otherwise.

“Faryal moved on quick. Always mentioned to me how much she wanted to be with another guy, from all people another boxer 🙄 @anthonyfjoshua,” he said in another tweet.

“Left my family and friends for this Faryal. I’m not hurt but another fighter. I’m making it public. You getting the divorce #Golddigger”.

Faryal hit back, accusing the husband of lying and coming up with a fabricated story. She snapped back that it was in fact Amir who had been cheating on her and she had been putting up with that.

Faryal had spoken out against her in-laws and domestic abuse she had been facing after her marriage. However, Amir’s family denied the allegations, blaming Faryal’s western lifestyle for the fallout between the couple and the family. The feud also led to Amir ‘firing’ his father as his manager.

Interestingly, Faryal had posted pictures of her with Amir, celebrating her birthday at Atlantis, The Palm in Dubai and having a good time at Cavalli Club’s ice lounge just few days ago.

    Amir is a fool who got taken in for a ride. Faryal is definitely a lot smarter than he is, and will most probably move on quicker. She will end up marrying another sports celebrity. The girl got talent.Recommend

    Amir Khan is a prime example of what happens to a young person with poor upbringing who suddenly becomes a multimillionaire …. It takes a man with a very strong character to not be influenced with all the evils that falls in one’s lap after gaining fame and fortune. Amir Khan has been a poster child of life in the fast lane and the accompanying debauchery.Recommend

    @MJ-Sid- Not defending Amir but he’s from a decent family and his parents are the prime example Mashallah. They been living in the UK since 70’s yet hold a very strong root to the religion and culture. Unfortunately, Amir fell for this mishap of marrying a wrong person which can happen to anyone God Forbid. May God have mercy on everyone, ameen!Recommend

    What did he and his family expect when the made the relationship with a model. I don’t think that she is modeling for some burka or abaya. What is worse that instead of resolving their matter quietly between family and the courts, both of them have resorted to using the social media to air their differences. Recommend

    That doesn’t make any difference, if he chose to publicize it. We all better know the intrigues played by liberal media. Its like whether melon falls on the knife or the knife falls on the melon, it’s the melon that suffers.Recommend
