London, August 4 (TNS): In an ugly war of words on social media, Pakistani-origins Amir Khan and his wife Faryal Makhdoom sensationally announced their marriage is over, accusing each other of cheating, British media reported on Friday.
The boxer, from Bolton, who is worth £23million, this afternoon astonishingly claimed she had an affair with heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.
But the model, 26, hit back on social media, claiming her husband is lying and that he is a ‘cheater’.
The couple were together on holiday in Dubai to celebrate Faryal’s 26th birthday last week, but it’s understood that Faryal has since flown back to England herself.
Joshua, 27, laughed off the claims by posting a video of Shaggy’s hit single It Wasn’t Me.
He then tweeted: ‘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’
A Khan family source told MailOnline: ‘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 today, 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, Faryal hit back on her own Twitter account and accused him 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?
