British boxer of Pakistani origin Amir Khan on Monday broke his silence over the statements made by his wife Faryal makhdoom against his family members, which are making rounds these days on social media.
Amir Khan is currently on a visit to Houston to attend a fundraiser, where a journalist asked him questions about his personal life and the revelations his wife has made.
Amir Khan in an apparent attempt to brush off the subject as inconsequential said that Faryal’s comments were taken out of context.
“My wife said something, my sister said something else, these are routine matters,” said Amir Khan.
Amir said that he enjoys pleasant relations with both wife and his family.
“So you are also trapped in between like any other ordinary guy,” quipped the reporter at the end.
The entire family saga surfaced last week when Faryal on her Snapchat made emotional comments.
“Don’t get your sons married if you’re going to abuse and bully the wife. I’ve always been so quiet but seriously, this message is for everyone! When you bring someone’s daughter — treat her as your own. Your son will be much happier and so will you,” she had written in a post.
This wasn’t the end of it Faryal had unveiled the dirty side of an otherwise fairy tale marriage. Her remarks were taken up by news publications, whereas, Amir up till now remained mum on the subject.
The 25-year-old also alleged that she was bullied by her in-laws for three years, but now she has had enough.
In an interview to British newspaper The Sun, Faryal alleged that her in-laws cropped her out of family photos, hurled a remote control at her and even slapped her.
British-Pakistani boxer Amir Khan married Faryal Makhdoom, a Pakistani-American model, make-up artist and lifestyle coach in 2013. Their first child, a daughter named Lamaisah, was born in 2014.
