LONDON: British Pakistani boxer Amir Khan and his American-Pakistani wife Faryal Makhdoom announced to end their marriage through explosive attacks on Twitter – accusing each other of cheating, lying, being unfaithful and greedy.

Following the footsteps of Imran Khan’s chief of staff Naeem-ul-Haque, Makhdoom deleted her tweets. An online paper claimed that Amir Khan’s Twitter account had been hacked but his explosive tweets weren’t removed from his account.

Just hours earlier, in a similar storm, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Naeemul Haque claimed to have discussed “marriage” with PTI MNA Ayesha Gulalai. Soon after, he deleted the tweets and PTI Information Secretary Shafqat Mahmood claimed Haque’s account had been hacked.

Khan, who is worth around £25million, claimed his wife had an affair with heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua. He not only accused Makhdoom of being desperate to move on, the boxer also alleged that she openly talked about being with another man and that she was a “gold-digger”.

Makhdoom, 26, hit back claiming her husband was lying and he was a “cheater”. Khan uploaded screenshots of an alleged conversation between his wife and Joshua.

The couple was together on holiday in Dubai to celebrate Makhdoom’s twenty-sixth birthday last week, who flew back to England alone on Wednesday.

In a statement to MailOnline, a Khan-family source said, “Amir and Faryal have split up. It’s over. There have been problems in the relationship for a long time and they were headed for a separation. It’s the best outcome.”

In a series of tweets, Olympic champion Khan wrote: “So me and the wife Faryal have agreed to split. I’m currently in Dubai. Wish her all the best. Faryal moved on quick. Always mentioned to me how much she wanted to be with another guy, from all people another boxer. 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. 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. Mans like Joshua can have my left overs!”

Within minutes, Makhdoom hit back from her Twitter account, accusing her husband of cheating on her. She wrote: “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. Man up amir. 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?”

“LOL! He’s given me jack s**t — I pay house bills and bills for my daughter myself! It’s like I’m a single mother while he’s out messing around. And he has the nerve to blast me like that? The amount of evidence I have on you. It can destroy you. But since I loved you at one point in my life. I’ll just let it go. I’m not the one who’s been in the papers every month with my pants down. Cheater! You have actually lost it. Wtf where do u make this stuff up from? And maybe your boxing career is finished because you’re an adulterer. At the end of the day I can hold my head high knowing I’ve given this marriage my 100% while amir clearly hasn’t. Bad company. Bad role model, always around women , alcohol and then he calls himself a Muslim and runs a charity. I’m sorry to all the fans & family hurt by this. But amir did not need to do stupid tweets accusing others when he’s in the wrong. #guilty. I think he just needs some attention because boxing hasn’t been going well for him so he’s just been acting up #30yearoldbaby . Sometimes people don’t like it when you give them a taste of their own medicine.”

A few weeks earlier, Khan made peace with his own family; he was seen with his father and uncle.

Another Khan-family source told MailOnline: “Faryal is evil. She took control of Amir and drove him to the extent where he has suffered depression. Amir was almost held hostage by in laws and was given ‘either with us or against us’ situation to decide between his family and in laws. That’s tragic. It was clear from very early on that Faryal is interested in Amir’s money and fame and we told Amir so that she’s a bad choice. We all make mistakes. It’s good Amir has reached to the conclusive fact that she’s a cheater, selfish and greedy. This was bound to happen. She he has been caught out, Amir has known for long she loves showing flesh to men and being interested in praise by random men and confronted her.”

“They found twice in America when Amir asked her to be modest, she issued threats to Amir and demanded 60 per cent share in property. For the last five months or so she only talked about share in Amir’s wealth and nothing else,” the source said.

Makhdoom was involved in a public feud with in-laws a few months back after she accused Amir’s parents of domestic violence.

After months of the media-frenzied family feud, she gave her sports-star husband an ultimatum to choose between his wife and family.

As per media reports, Makhdoom stopped Khan from attending his younger brother Haroon’s wedding because she couldn’t forgive the groom for ‘comparing her physical appearance to Michael Jackson.’
