The former couple has a three-year-old daughter Lamaisah whose custody is yet to be decided after Khan announced divorce on social media less than a month ago. Amir and Faryal tied the knot in 2013, when Amir was at the prime of his boxing career.
Earlier, Khan had announced the couple’s separation in a series of scathing tweets. He had accused fellow boxer Anthony Joshua for having an affair with her wife. “Faryal moved on quick. Always mentioned to me how much she wanted to be with another guy, from all people another boxer,” Khan had tweeted.

The twitter spat moved on for a while before it finally turned out to be a misunderstanding. Faryal had deleted her tweets soon after she unloaded rebuttles. Khan withdrew his claims soon after and apologised to Joshua in another tweet saying, “I got angry like any man would. No truth to it. Good to know.” Joshua had replied by saying, “apologies accepted”.
