British-Pakistani boxer Amir Khan’s estranged wife Faryal Makhdoom hinted at a reconciliation in a lengthy message on Twitter, claiming that her daughter and unborn child do not deserve ‘a broken home’.
She said it was time for her and Khan to put their ‘differences behind.’
She also apologised for the conflicts with Khan’s family, while disclosing that the family feud has had a ‘terrible effect’ on her marriage.
Hours after she announced the launch of her own lipstick brand, Faryal tweeted the statement to her 180,000 followers.
She wrote: “The past three months have been really tough on me and my marriage.
“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.
“My mother and father-in-law are the elders of our family and as such deserve love and respect just as much as my own parents do.
“I’ve said things in the past out of anger… I didn’t really mean and regret now.”
She continued: “My daughter and unborn child do not deserve a broken home.
“That is why I have decided that it is time to put our differences behind us, and start afresh.
“All families go through hard times. It is unfortunate for us that our difficulties were played out so publicly. I also apologise for my part in that.”
The couple, who married in 2013, set the media abuzz after a very public falling out on Twitter earlier this year.
The boxer accused his wife of having an affair with heavyweight rival Anthony Joshua.
Khan lashed out at his wife, writing: “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.”
Minutes later, Faryal hit back, saying her husband left his family because they had ‘robbed’ him and telling him to ‘stop making false things up’.
Labeling him a ’30-year-old baby’, she accused him of sleeping with prostitutes and being a bad role model.
Joshua laughed off Khan’s claims, posting the music video from pop star Shaggy’s “It Wasn’t Me” online, and saying he had never met Faryal.
Khan later apologised to Joshua and said there was ‘no truth’ to his claims.
