Reports of Reham hitting Imran are absolute lies: PTI

Published: November 5, 2015


Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf on Thursday refuted reports of party chairman Imran Khan being beaten up by his former wife Reham Khan.

“Similarly on behalf of the chairman, I wish to state categorically that stories of Reham Khan hitting Imran Khan are absolute lies – the product of a vicious mind,” party spokesperson Shireen Mazari said in a press statement.

Mazari’s response came after wide sections of the media reported that there may have been physical altercations between the couple ahead of their divorce.

Further, the party spokesperson clarified that no party leader was “privy to either discussions of Khan’s marriage nor of the divorce.”

Mazari also expressed regret “at the manner in which malicious rumours are being given out regarding the breakup of chairman Khan’s marriage to Reham Khan.”

“All stories of vast monetary settlements made to Reham Khan are absolutely false and lies deliberately being floated to target Reham Khan and Imran Khan,” the press statement added.

Concluding the statement, Mazari said,  “It is unfortunate that the media is floating rumours and conjectures about the divorce of Imran Khan and Reham Khan at a time when both are going through a difficult personal time as are their families, especially their children.”

After a 10-month long marriage, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan and his wife Reham Khan 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.”

    To ones who wish to know, PTI issued this official statement not for IK, but for Reham Khan so that her haters can leave her(and her family) be. She needs as much peace of mind as does IK. Recommend

    Guys, relax – please keep in mind IK is fighting against the status quo. Such things and many more such tactics will keep happening to divert you from your mission which is to get rid of the status quo.
    What is status quo? The status quo is the current state of things. If you are rich and admired, then you’re probably not interested in disrupting the status quo.
    Let’s hold hand in hand and support PTI – trust me together we can make it. Recommend

    Rehams first husband also accused Reham for violent acts and beating him. It can not be ruled out that she must have done the same with Imran. Girl from Haripur lost herself in the glamour and mixed night parties of London. She can not settle with any human beingRecommend

    @Asim. Can you please explain how someone who is being remote controlled by the establishment working against the status quo? Most of the people he selects for party sponsored tickets and official posts within are rejects or fell out of favor from the parties and the system that makes up the status quo. I am no MQM supporter but at least they give party posts and electoral tickets to members who are picked on the basis of their performance and favor within the party not pick folks from other parties who have a potential of winning their contested constituencies.
