Amir Khan is ‘gut­ted’ by his mar­riage split

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The 30-year-old boxer re­vealed the break­down of his mar­riage to Faryal Makhdoom in a Twit­ter out­burst last week and Amir has ad­mit­ted that the break-up has left him dev­as­tated. Speak­ing in Dubai, where he is cur­rently stay­ing, he told the Sun­day Mirror: “I don’t know what to say. I’m gut­ted. I’ve not slept all night. “I went to see some peo­ple at the ma­rina and I’ve been up all night. I couldn’t sleep. I need time to think. I just need to rest and to speak to some peo­ple.” Faryal and Amir’s fam­ily had a no­to­ri­ously dif­fi­cult re­la­tion­ship and friends say he is heart­bro­ken that they could not make their mar­riage work. A source said: “Amir gave up so much to try to make it work with his wife, now it looks like he has noth­ing. He left his fam­ily and friends and now he is dev­as­tated. “He’s heart­bro­ken. A lot of things are said on so­cial me­dia but it’s not how he wanted it to come out.” Last week the 30-year-old pro­fes­sional boxer an­nounced the break-up on his Twit­ter ac­count and added a string of bizarre tweets, ac­cus­ing his wife of cheat­ing on him with boxer An­thony Joshua, some­thing An­thony and Faryal both de­nied. Mes­sages posted on Faryal’s ac­count claimed that Khan had ac­tu­ally cheated on her, be­fore she wrote on Snapchat that they had both been hacked. She wrote: “Holy god! My ac­counts have been hacked! What is go­ing on. “Amirs ac­count and my twit­ter ac­count have been com­pro­mised. I sin­cerely apol­o­gize (sic).” How­ever, he later in­sisted in a video posted to Snapchat that their mar­riage is def­i­nitely over. Amir said: “Hey guys, hope you’re well. Yeah so ev­ery­thing you saw on so­cial me­dia today, it is real. Ob­vi­ously me and Faryal have both de­cided to move on - well, I’ve de­cided to walk away... noth­ing’s been hacked and ob­vi­ously it’s just a tough time we both have to go through. “We have to both move for­ward be­cause it’s not healthy for any of us and I’m just not happy with the way I get treated by her and ev­ery­thing else. So look, I wish her ev­ery best for the fu­ture and I’m in Dubai at the mo­ment and I’m do­ing some train­ing and stuff but I don’t want you guys to worry. “I am stay­ing strong and I just want to say a big thank you for all your sup­port but yeah. What’s done is done. Ev­ery­thing I posted on so­cial me­dia today was true.”
