Khan in a series of tweets on Friday, August 4 revealed that his marriage to Faryal Makhdoom is over, accusing her of cheating on him with Joshua.

Khan and Pakistani-American Faryal got married in May, a year after they got engaged.

According to Daily Mail, the boxer and his wife were in Dubai just last week to celebrate the boxer’s 26th birthday but Faryal is said to have travelled back to England alone.

Khan took to Twitter to rant; “So me and the wife Faryal have agreed to split. I'm currently in Dubai. Wish her all the best,” the Olympic Champions wrote.

“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!”

Joshua quickly took to Twitter to deny the accusation, suggesting that Faryal is not his type.

The 27-year-old first tweeted a photo of Shaggy's video 'It wasn't me' before revealing that he never even met Khan's wife.

Bantz aside, I hope you guys can resolve your situation or this is a hack as we have never even met! Plus I like my women BBW #ItWasntMe,” the 27-year-old wrote.


Fareyal also hit back on Twitter to accuse Khan of cheating also.

“I'm sure you left your family because they robbed you? Not because of me. Stop making false things up,” the model wrote.

“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.”
