Popular British Boxer, Amir Khan and his wife Faryal Makhdoom have rather publicly separated from each other after a turbulent 4 years of marriage. The marriage was initially plagued by disapproval by Amir’s family, ultimately resulting in Amir’s estrangement from them. It was then rocked by several cheating scandals by Amir, culminating in a leaked sex tape in January of this past year.
After all this you might ask, what was the straw that broke the camel’s back? This morning Amir Khan took to twitter to publicly announce his separation from Faryal, accusing her of being a “gold digger”, and of having an affair with Anthony Joshua. Anthony Joshua is another British Boxer who has just come off a massive win over boxing legend Wladimir Klitschko.
Prompting his wife to come back at him on her twitter by saying that she is the primary breadwinner in the family, via her cosmetics line, and that he was merely trying to compensate for his stalling boxing career by accusing AJ so publically.
It should be noted that Amir Khan is notorious for drumming up twitter drama to try and angle at fights that are beyond what many would consider his caliber. So is this an attempt by Amir to take advantage of his failing marriage to drum up a fight against one of the hottest British fighters in recent memory? Or do we have a serious scandal on our hands?
Tune into Amir and Faryal’s twitters to find out, cause that’s what I’ll be doing!
