Amir Khan, wife part ways

Wednesday 09th August 2017 06:33 EDT

Boxer Amir Khan has accused fellow British boxer Anthony Joshua of having a relationship with his wife, Faryal Makhdoom Khan, after announcing they are separating. Former world champion posted a message that announced he and his wife were ending their four-year marriage, writing: “So me and the wife Faryal have agreed to split. I'm currently in Dubai. Wish her all the best.”

The post appeared to suggest an amicable break-up, but Amir followed up with a series of messages accusing Farya of having a relationship with 27-year-old Joshua following their break-up, and labelled her a “Golddigger.”

Faryal immediately launched a series of accusations, with the 26-year-old defending herself and calling her husband “bad company, [a] bad role model and always around women.” She wrote: “@amirkingkhan 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. I'm sure you left your family because they robbed you? Not because of me. Stop making false things up. Accusing other boxers just because your boxing career is finished. And I'm called a gold digger?

Khan did not reply to the responses, and Faryal ended the conversation by apologising to her followers and claiming that her husband was making the accusations up because “he just needs some attention because boxing hasn’t been going well.”
