With Khan eyeing another marriage, Jemima decides to ditch him for good!


It seems Imran Khan’s decision to remarry hasn’t exactly gone down well with all his supporters as Jemima Khan, who got divorced from the cricket legend 10 years ago, has disclosed her intention, albeit reluctant, to do away with her surname, the Daily Mail has reported.

“My ex-husband, Imran, recently announced that he intended to get remarried soon, which made me think it’s probably time to change my name back to Goldsmith,” said the 40-year-old daughter of the late billionaire Sir James Goldsmith and his widow, Lady Annabel.

Earlier this year, it was reported that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief is under immense pressure from his family members to get married in the near future, family sources revealed. According to the sources, Imran’s sisters in particular were very insistent that he get married in a bid to avoid personal vilification.

Imran, who is currently staging a sit-in in Islamabad against the PML-N government, only fuelled the rumours when he announced that he would get married as soon as his ‘Naya Pakistan’ came into being.

Jemima, who has two sons with Imran, seems particularly sad about the switch.

“I’ve been Khan for as long as I was Goldsmith and I last used my maiden name when I was a child (OK, 21),” she writes in the New Statesman magazine.

“I quite like that my name represents my “Juslim” identity (Jemima being Jewish, Khan Muslim-ish).”

Heiress Jemima reportedly converted to Islam before marrying Imran in a traditional Muslim ceremony in Paris at the age of 21. The couple said their marriage collapsed because it was “difficult for Jemima to adapt to life in Pakistan”.

Jemima went on to have a three-year relationship with actor Hugh Grant and more recently controversial comedian Russell Brand.

“I kept ‘Khan’ originally as my children felt strongly about it, but now they’re grown up they don’t seem to care,” she says.

  2. Time will decide whether Imran Khan was a great patriot, a superman or a phony and a cheap play boy. For the moment it is guess work. People idolise him for his sporting exploits and philanthropy. He wants more which is okay provided he deserves it. His political acumen remains half baked but better than other politicians.

  3. What will happen to the 300kanal (37 acres) palace in Banigala worth £100 Million that she had "gifted" Imran Khan 11 years ago?
    The tax cheater will probably deceive her again!
