British boxer Amir Khan has confirmed his split from wife Faryal Makhdoom after claiming she cheated on him with fellow Nigerian born British heavyweight boxer Anthony Joshua as the pair reignited their bitter social media spat tonight.
The pair became embroiled in a row on Snapchat after Khan posted a video saying the pair were “moving on” following a public Twitter clash earlier.
Posting on Snapchat this evening, Khan said: “Everything you saw on social media it is real.
“Me and Farrah have decided to move on and walk away.
“Nothing has been hacked.
“We have to move forward it’s not healthy for any of us.
“I wish her all the best in the future.
“Don’t want you guys to worry…What’s done is done, it’s all true.”
Faryal then reignited the public feud with her own Snapchat rant where she threatened to “blow ur spot so bad”.
She fumed: “Shocked at anirs response. Disgusted and clearly it’s not him talking…I could blow up ur spot so bad but I’ll be the bigger person.
“Actually trying to ruin someone’s life like this is a low blow. Especially someone who’s been there through every cheating scandal and stuck by your side when your own parents screwed your over.
“It’s ok. I’ll stay quiet. I won’t let YOUR dirty laundry out in the public. Because I’m better than that. Clearly being influenced by someone. Hope it’s not the family again.
“I’ve treated him bad? Lol…… why because I stopped him from harram? sacrificed my life and my daughters for someone who drinks alcohol everyday and calls himself a boxer.
“I’m done won’t say no more. He can continue. Shame.”
She had also earlier claimed their accounts had been “compromised” and apologised for the mix up.
Khan revealed on Twitter today he had split with Faryal and accused her of cheating with Anthony Joshua in a string of explosive posts where she branded him the “cheater”.
Anthony made light of the bombshell claims posting a video of Shaggy’s 90s hit It Wasn’t Me to his Twitter account and sparking an explosion of hilarious memes.
He followed the video with a tweet reading: “Bantz aside, I hope you guys can resolve your situation or this is a hack as we have never even met! Plus I like my women BBW.”
Hours later, Faryal deleted all trace of the row on her Twitter – except two tweets directly to Khan in which she branded him a “cheater”.
The social media spat started after a tweet was posted to the boxer’s account reading: “So me and the wife Faryal have agreed to split. I’m currently in Dubai. Wish her all the best.”
After wishing his wife all the best tweets went on to make sensational claims she had moved on with fellow boxer Anthony Joshua as their troubled marriage appeared to implode in public.
Joshua was tagged in a tweet that read: “Faryal moved on quick. Always mentioned to me how much she wanted to be with another guy, from all people another boxer.
“Lol moved up in the weight classes lol. Trust me I ain’t the jealous type. No need to send me pictures of the men your talking to.”
Tweets from Faryal’s account hit back at the claims as she branded her husband a “cheater” and “bad role model, always around women and alcohol” .
The gloves were off as model Faryal, 26, blasted Bolton born Amir just minutes after tweets were posted from the boxer’s account writing: “Accusing other boxers just because your boxing career is finished. Man up amir.”
She continued: “After all these years. I’ve always defending a cheat, always stuck around for him, always had his back. And I’m called a gold digger?
“LOL! He’s given me jack s*** — I pay house bills and bills for my daughter myself! It’s like I’m a single mother while he’s out messing around.
“And he has the nerve to blast me like that? The amount of evidence I have on you. It can destroy you. But since I loved you at one point in my life. I’ll just let it go.
“I’m not the one who’s been in the papers every month with my pants down Cheater!”
Faryal continued to hit out at her husband over his rumoured infidelities before branding him a “#30yearoldbaby” after he tweeted “Mans like Joshua can have my left overs!”.
She tweeted: “maybe your boxing career is finished because you’re an adulterer.
“At the end of the day I can hold my head high knowing I’ve given this marriage my 100% while amir clearly hasn’t. Bad company.
“Bad role model, always around women , alcohol and then he calls himself a Muslim and runs a charity.
“I’m sorry to all the fans & family hurt by this. But amir did not need to do stupid tweets accusing others when he’s in the wrong.#guilty
“I think he just needs some attention because boxing hasn’t been going well for him so he’s just been acting up”
