Are Amir Khan boxer and his wife and a well-known model, Faryal Makhdoom headed for divorce. There are ample signs that their marriage cannot last any longer. After four year long bitter sweet relationship that seems to have more downs than ups, it seems the time has finally come when their marriage has reached the tipping point.
Amir Khan, who won a silver medal in 2004 Olympics, and impressed the entire world with his speed and powerful punches, hasn’t been able to do well in the ring in the last more than a year. Now there are signs that as he is set to lose the woman, whom he courted for a year before marrying a year later.
The two have been involved in open, and rather very disturbing public spat on twitter. Faryal Makhdoom, who had many issues with his parents in the past made some very personal remarks against her husband, putting the final nail in the coffin of their marriage.
It was five and half years ago, in 29 January 2012, when Amir Khan, who was among the most promising boxers of the time, became engaged to Pakistani-American student, Faryal Makhdoom. The engagement ceremony was unbelievably huge. A thousand friends and family were in attendance, including several world class boxers. The couple finally married on 31 May 2013 at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. The couple then flew back to Khan’s hometown of Bolton where a second celebration, a traditional Walima, took place in Manchester, which included 4,000 guests. Their first child, a daughter named Lamaisah, was born in May 2014. She is just three years old.
There are reports that Amir Khan thinks that his wife is cheating him. He has accused her of allegedly having an affair with Anthony Joshua, another well-known boxer.
The news of the split was announced by Khan through a tweet. On August 4 Amir Khan told the world, “So me and the wife Faryal have agreed to split. I’m currently in Dubai. Wish her all the best.” That was followed up with a screengrab of a Snapchat conversation that Khan says was between his wife and boxer Anthony Joshua. Khan followed that up with, “Faryal moved on quick. Always mentioned to me how much she wanted to be with another guy, from all people another boxer.” Another tweet said, “Lol moved up in the weight classes lol. Trust me I ain’t the jealous type. No need to send me pictures of the men your talking to disgusted.”
This is so unexpected that many fans of Khan cannot believe as to what is happening. That was followed by, “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.” The final message, at the time of writing read, “Mans like Joshua can have my left overs!” In response to the scandal, Joshua wrote on Twitter, “Bantz aside, I hope you guys can resolve your situation or this is a hack as we have never even met! Plus I like my women BBW #ItWasntMe.”
It was the time for his wife Faryal to enter the Tweeting war. “I’m not sure if it’s your family tweeting for you. But I’m not the one who been in the papers for cheating… Stop making false things up” she said. Faryal further said, “Accusing other boxers just because your boxing career is finished. Man up amir.” It was certainly not enough for her so came another tweet, “After all these years. I’ve always defending a cheat, always stuck around for him, always had his back. And I’m called a gold digger?”
She claimed that right now Amir Khan was holidaying with a prostitute in Dubai. “He’s in Dubai rightnow with a prostitude. While I’m getting accused of cheating? Treating the mother of his child like this , is sickening”, he Khan’s wife.
