Reham Khan, former wife of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, has accused him of being “unfaithful”, according to British media, days after the cricketer-turned-politician confirmed his third marriage.
Imran Khan, 66, tied the knot with Bushra Riaz Wattoo in a private ceremony in Lahore on Sunday. The PTI confirmed party chairman’s third marriage with Bushra, known to be his spiritual guide.
Imran first tied the knot with Jemima Khan on May 16, 1995 that ended in divorce after nine years on June 22, 2004. His second marriage with Reham Khan, then a TV anchor, lasted for barely 10 months.
Reham alleged that the relationship between the newlyweds had begun before her ten-month marriage ended in divorce in 2015, leading British daily The Times reported.
“Imran Khan was in contact with Bushra three years ago when I was his wife and he is not the truthful man,” Reham, 44, told The Times.
“I knew they married on 1 January, and he revealed it later, this is exactly what he did after marrying me and then announcing after two months.”
In a recent interview Reham claimed that she married Imran in a secret ceremony on October 31, 2014. But the PTI chairperson hid the news for months, despite reports in the media.
“The reports of my marriage are greatly exaggerated!” Imran tweeted on Dec 31, 2014. He, however, made his marriage with Reham public in January 2015.
