Amir Khan’s sister claims that the boxer’s wife has banned his family from visiting their two-year-old daughter.
Mariyah Khan, 19, suggested that her brother’s wife Faryal Makhdoom Khan, 25, does not let the family see toddler Lamaisah.
She claimed Faryal ‘doesn’t allow us to see her’ during an Instagram conversation in which a commenter accused Mariyah and her family of not helping Faryal.
According to The Sun, the Instagram user wrote: ‘You people don’t even help Faryal. Everytime when she goes out from the country her Mum comes from the USA to babysit.
‘Cruel people. Amir choose his wife over you guys.’
Mariyah is said to have replied: ‘Babes she doesn’t allow us to see her’.
Faryal was quick to defend her stance by saying the claims made by Amir’s sister were false. “I have never stopped my child from visiting them. In fact Amir’s older sister wouldn’t let her daughters come over and play with my daughter,” she told the newspaper.
Amir later posted a photograph on Instagram of his daughter with Faryal’s parents, which he captioned: “Merry Christmas from Lamaisah and her grandparents. Have a good one.”
Earlier, the boxer in a statement apologised to his fans, lashing out at his wife and family for making the feud public.

“I apologise for the silly picture and message my wife Faryal put up. Here’s me working my a** off…and my family and wife are just destroying my name,” he posted on Tuesday. “My parents and my parents and my wife is my wife. Whatever misunderstanding has happened they should keep it private.”
The star went on to say, “This is getting to the point where they will lose a son and a husband. Childish behaviour. Both parties need to stop this. I’ve had enough.”
Faryal, who is also a 25-year-old model, claimed that she was bullied in the Khan household for many years. She claimed that she was called names by her brother-in-law for undergoing plastic surgery, who often compared her to Micheal Jackson.
Faryal also opened up about being called a gold digger. “When I didn’t work and I used to just stay home I was called a gold digger. People would say I’m with Amir for his money,” she shared.
