Amir Khan has announced he will divorce pregnant wife Faryal Makhdoom, despite her pleas for reconciliation for the sake of their unborn baby.
Taking to Twitter hours after his estranged wife apologised, the boxer wrote:
“Unfortunately it didn’t work out between Me and Faryal and we are still going ahead with the divorce. We are in good talking terms.
“We have to think about our daughter Lamaisah who I will always be there for. I wish Faryal all the very best for the future.”
This morning Faryal Makhdoom made a desperate bid to save her marriage – appearing to ask her husband for a second chance.
“The past three months have been really tough on me and my marriage,” she wrote.
“Matters haven’t been helped by the fact that my husband has been out of the ring for quite some time… it’s been very stressful for us as a couple, and a family.
“I now recognise that all this infighting between me and my in-laws has had a terrible effect on my husband and I… and for that I would like to sincerely apologise.
