Boxer Amir Khan has explained how he came to accuse his wife of sleeping with Anthony Joshua in past.
Amir Khan took to social media in 2017 and accused Anthony Joshua of cheating with his wife. At the time, the man who was angry went all out on Twitter to accuse his wife of infidelity and also tell her that they were done being a couple.
Then both Amir Khan and his wife Faryal Makhdoom took incredible 80-minute on Twitter exchange before agreeing to separate.
Now after 2 years Amir Khan has finally come out to talk about the ugly event. He revealed why he had thought his wife Faryal Makhdoom was cheating on him with Anthony Joshua and also how the entire incident has affected him and changed his perception of things.
He told ESPN, “It was a made-up message, a lot of people were making all these fake messages saying that ‘Joshua messaged your wife and she messaged him back.”
Then I posted it on social media and said, ‘This has happened and it’s true. And I’m calling it over. She’s no longer my wife.'”
“I did feel bad, I did feel stupid at the time but the damage was done. I made that mistake in tweeting something and putting it out. I was just digging a deeper and deeper hole.
“I remember I went to see Faryal. I apologised. I said, ‘Look, I don’t know what went through my head.’ And I totally changed my ways, changed the way I am.”
He added, It was just a lack of understanding. Faryal comes from a city. She’s a young girl. She likes to dress differently. Bolton’s a little town.”
The dress code’s a little bit different, being a Muslim. I was stuck in the middle. I kept it cool with Faryal. I kept it cool with my family. And I tried to resolve the situation.
“I wasn’t husband of the year. I was a bit naughty at times. I used to get caught misbehaving, going out, partying, clubs, going out with other girls and stuff. … Fame is a b**** at times. Everything is printed in the tabloids.”
