Boxer Amir Khan’s wife posted a photo on Instagram, with the message ‘Till death do us apart’ in a bid to tell the world that the couple is going strong, despite the issues between them.

Her followers bombarded her post with comments. Some plain vile, others asking her to respect the thin line between public and private, and some more supporting her for the strong woman she is.

Faryal made it to the news earlier this year after she said she had been bullied by her in-laws for three years. In a series of Snapchat posts she said that her in-laws wanted Amir to divorce her, and had issues with the way she dressed up. She also said that her brother-in-law had called her Michael Jackson- a jibe at her numerous plastic surgeries.

In their first interview since the domestic dispute made headlines in the international media, Khan’s parents rubbished her allegations, claiming they never so much as laid a hand on her and treated Faryal like their own daughter.

“Faryal was adopting a dress code which in the Islamic faith was not acceptable. I am a father to two daughters whom I have treated exactly the same way as I have treated Faryal,” said Sajjad Khan, speaking exclusively with Geo News at his home in Bolton.

He said he never said anything to Faryal, but did express his concerns to his son over her pictures in such dressing which she shared on social media.

Pakistani-origin British boxer Amir Khan threw his weight behind his wife in her public spat with his family, but has threatened to cut both her and his family out of life if the ‘silly’ squabble continues

In a carefully worded issued statement on his social media accounts, Khan appeared to be siding with his wife, stating: “I have supported my wife, and that’s because she was in the right. Since I’ve been married I’ve seen how my family and siblings have treated her. It wasn’t fair.

“It was a private matter and should’ve kept private.”
