After a 10-month long marriage, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan and his wife Reham Khan have decided to part ways.

The PTI chief confirmed his and Reham’s decision to file for divorce via twitter on Friday. “This is a painful time for me and Reham and our families. I would request everyone to respect our privacy.”

“I have the greatest respect for Reham’s moral character & her passion to work for & help the underprivileged,” he added.

Imran , 62, married 42-year-old Reham Khan, a former BBC weather host and a divorced mother of three, in January this year in a simple ceremony at his Islamabad home.

Reham Khan: From Hazara to Bani Gala

Earlier in the day, PTI spokesperson Naeemul Haque confirmed that the couple has decided to divorce with mutual consent. “PTI chairman Imran Khan and Reham Khan have decided to divorce by mutual consent. Due to the sensivity and seriousness of this extremely painful matter it is requested that the media should refrain from any speculation. There will be no further communication in this respect,” the PTI spokesperson said, according to a post on the PTI chief’s official Facebook page.

Soon after the news broke, Reham took to Twitter and said, “We have decided to part ways and file for divorce.”

Further, according to reports Reham is in London and is expected to address a press conference there.

Reham used me ‘like toilet paper to clean up her image’: former husband

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, following the news of divorce urged all Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leaders to refrain from commenting on Imran Khan’s personal matters, Express News reported.

Meanwhile, commenting on the divorce, Nisar Khuhro said, “If I was PPP Punjab leader, I would have immediately invited Reham Khan to join our party.”

“Regardless of whether a woman is from the east or west, she can not survive with a person like Imran Khan,” he added.

Further, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah echoing Khuhro’s statement said, “No woman can stay with Imran Khan.”

Speaking to Express News, PTI activist and singer Abrarul Haq has said, “More women will vote for PTI now after Imran’s divorce.”

MQM MNA Ali Raza Abidi said, “Imran Khan has proven that he is unstable and cannot remain on a commitment. He is the wrong choice for a leader to lead as his ego is disastrous for himself and the country.”

Regarding upcoming local bodies elections, Abidi said, “The divorce will certainly affect the party’s political standing in the local bodies election.”

Soon after, PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari also directed his party members to not make any adverse comments on Imran’s personal matters.

Reports regarding collapse of their marriage were circulating in the media for a while.

At the time of their marriage, it was reported that the Haq Mehr was set at Rs100,000.

Further, Imran denied reports regarding financial settlements as “absolutely false.”

Imran Khan denies reports of marriage collapse with Reham

Last month, the PTI chairman rejected a media report suggesting his marriage with Reham Khan was on the rocks.

“I am shocked at a TV channel making a slanderous statement about my marriage. I strongly urge the media to desist from such baseless statements,” the PTI chief said on microblogging website Twitter.

Imran’s statement came after a local media report alleged the cricketer-turned-politician’s wife was staying at his Bani Gala residence even though she was “not welcome there any longer.”

’Jemima running smear campaign against Reham’

The report, citing the editor of a local daily newspaper, claimed that Imran had recently returned from London where he had recently stayed with his children and Jemima, his ex-wife.

“The relationship with Reham, already on the rocks, has worsened since Khan returned to Pakistan. Differences between the couple may have reached point of no return,” the report stated.

Imran and Reham’s relationship was a topic of controversy from the very start. Soon after the couple married, Reham’s ex-husband, NHS psychiatrist Dr Ijaz Rehman strongly denied allegations he had mistreated her during their marriage.

Reham will neither contest elections on PTI ticket nor attend party events: Imran

“I have never been involved in any kind of domestic violence in any shape or form,” said Dr Rehman, with whom she has three children. “I always looked after my children and wife very well.”

Further, Dr Rehman claimed she used him “like toilet paper to clean up her image” after she found herself harshly criticised by traditionalists in Pakistan who saw Imran’s bride as far too Westernised.

Further, months after their marriage, it was found that Reham had not attended the Lincolnshire college as she had claimed on her personal website. She said she studied journalism at ‘North Lindsay College’ in Scunthorpe.

Caught in the act: Reham alters university name on official website

However, the college confirmed that it had never taught journalism and had no record of her being a student. She subsequently changed her website to state that she went to the Grimsby Institute.

PTI party members had earlier also expressed concern over Reham’s participation in party politics after which Imran announced she will neither contest elections on a party ticket nor will attend any party gatherings.

PTI cadres unhappy with Reham’s cameo in poll campaign

In a series of tweets, the PTI chairman had expressed ‘disgust’ over attacks on Reham after the party lost NA-19, Haripur elections to a Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) candidate. “She only went to campaign there on insistence of the candidate,” he defended.

“For the record, Reham has only attended PTI functions at the constant insistence of PTI members, especially the women,” he added.

Extraordinary Pakistanis: Reham Khan

Reham had officially grabbed the driving seat for PTI in NA-19, Haripur and had been actively campaigning for the party during the by-polls. Earlier, Imranand his wife had denied rumours over the latter’s plans to enter the political arena. However, recent developments contradicted these claims. Reham addressed the political meetings in Hindko, Pashto and Urdu and urged locals to vote for Zaman.

The PTI chief had married television talk show host Reham Khan in a low-key ceremony attended by a handful of friends on January 8. The was conducted at his Bani Gala residence in Islamabad by Mufti Syed in an Islamic ceremony.

The PTI chief had first announced his intention to wed shortly after he began a movement to topple the government last August, which he called off last month in the aftermath of a Taliban attack on a Peshawar school that killed nearly 150 people, mostly children.

In December last year, British tabloid newspaper Daily Mail had reported that the PTI chairperson had ‘secretly’ gotten married. Days after  branding the report as “greatly exaggerated,” the PTI chairman before boarding a flight at Heathrow airport in January said, “I am going to Pakistan to share good news about my marriage with the nation. I have nothing to hide.”

Going to share good news about my marriage with nation next week: Imran

The 62-year-old politician, who divorced heiress Jemima Goldsmith in 2004, had wed the 41-year-old divorced mother-of-three against the wishes of his party and family.

    I think the decision from IK to marry Reham was not appropriate. She didn’t allign to his ideology and life pattern as he preaches. This was one of the bad decision from him BUT this is his PERSONAL matter and no one should use this as political purpose. He had the right to marry and there is nothing bad in it untill and unless it by illegal means. I pray for both person. May Allah Almighty bless both if them.

    @Lt Col Imtiaz Alam (retd):
    Your view is understandable. Whatever has resulted and for whatever reasons is unfortunate. Remaining in touch and even visiting with Jemima, ex wife and mother of his two growing children in her custody, would not be a bad idea as such. It could only help strengthen bond between him and his children and contribute to their happy future. It is also not fair to expect the great ex cricketer to forget his personal needs when he has easy access to unlimited comforts. What he needs to know is to refrain from his brutal and insensitive political course which so far he has successfully applied to lead or mislead his followers. Most of what he says makes little sense, he does not seem to realise how much damage he is building up to come back and harm him and the nation. He pledges to end corruption without explaining the tools to do that….or is he, to use his own familiar words, waiting for his own turn like other leaders when his cronies will start their loot.

    Finally we must wish good luck to Reham Khan, undoubtedly a well educated, talented lady with great potential, and her children who sadly are once again facing an unpleasant situation.

    I do not understand the ‘sacrifice’ stuff you have referred to. In my view anyone has the right to become a politician, being related to IK or NS should not bar relatives, sons or daughters who ever, from their rights. To be honest it was disappointing to see that he stopped his wife from entering politics just because he had been condemning other politicians for promoting their relatives. Also it is likely that he wanted to merely choke her before she became more popular than him! Remember the story of the royals in Uk….Prince Charles was getting jealous of Princes Dianna’ popularity and the rest was history.

    And here the PTI troll brigade expecting greatness from a man with failed marriages and flingss… Consider this 2 wives, 1 lover and 3 kids… their common bond? None of them willing to live with this egomaniac….Recommend

    Will have to wait and see the full fall out of this. If my guess is right she was planted for this day to bring bad name to IK and his management style, by the people in the party who would benefit the most by the downing of IK. Let’s see, and time will tell, if this party is taken over by others and she will be part of that gang.Recommend

    It’s simple question of compatibility. A gap of 20 years between them. There is no affinity and harmony in such marriages. It was quite obvious from the start that this marriage would not survive. I blame MS Reham for going through this relationship. She knew from the beginning that she is marrying a old horse.Recommend

    @trollhunter:
    You an idiot. Clinton didn’t lose office. Gingrich was playing cheap politics, ironically while having an affair himself on his ill wife with a woman who would later also become his and he’d leave for another woman. Schwarzenegger didn’t lose office either. Details of his illegitimate child came out much later and it was post Bush he was going to lose anyway.Recommend

    Yee tu ho na hee tha, Celebratie of Imran Khan fame and status ‘re special species; He inhereted high standerds and lifestyle with fame. So it was proved all along that he not an easy bird to match with or in other words to get along without having an aristocratic brought up or background.
    I’m afraid!! Madam Reham was nowhere close to those standards and failed finally in her task in spite of being charming to atain those credentials and stay in the seddle longer then couple of months. Recommend

    I recall reading Jemima calling this matrimony of Imran Kkhan and Reham Khan just a “phase”. Sadly, she has been proven right by this divorce. I don’t know for whom to feel sorry more – Irman or Reham. World will go on speculating about motives of Reham behind marrying Imran Khan, but the simple fact of life is that some relationships regardless of how intense at the onset just aren’t meant to last. Hope both of them will get over this painful breakup soon and get on with their respective lives! My condolences!Recommend

    Looks and outer sophisticated are not every thing. Which man wants to loose his freedom to an over-controlling woman together with extreme aggressiveness and ambition. Imran made the right decision to keep his various facets of lives compartmentalized (his sons, his ex-wife his family, his party workers, his new wife, etc) which it appears was not acceptable to Reham. Reham failed to understand the reality of the situation and overstepped on the toes of a lot of imp stakeholders and even Imran himself. How dare she tell Imran so soon into marriage that he does not know how to run his party? This was her failure and it seems she was habit bound to be in a rush to get everything too quickly. Further her image was already severely dented as an opportunist and very selfish woman who poisoned her kids minds against their father and even took out an arrest warrant against him. Imran was lucky to get rid of Reham because one there are kids involved, women hold all the aces.

    Reham has gained fame from this marriage since very few people internationally knew her before. But her reputation as an opportunist and controlling type is now firmly established. She future in Pakistan is zero because Pakistan is a patriarchal and traditional society. her only chance to make her future is in UK but no man would risk marrying her without a prenuptial agreement. Imran is lucky to have been able to use the Islamic law of triple talak. Recommend
