Following Faryal Makhdoom claim that she is pregnant with Amir Khan’s second baby, former world champion Amir Khan has announced in a new video that he filed for divorce from his wife Faryal Makhdoom and they are no more spouse.
Recently, the boxer and his wife of four years had an acrimonious split. A few weeks ago Khan took to social media and accused her of having an affair with heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, who immediately denied the allegation.
Khan would later apologize for the remark and hashed things out with Joshua on the phone.
And although his wife recently announced she is pregnant with her husband's second child, Amir says he is going ahead with the divorce.
Amir and Faryal, 26, already have a three-year-old daughter Lamaisah together, but she is reportedly prepared to raise their unborn baby without the support of Amir.
''So me and Faryal are not together. I have filed for a divorce, Khan said in a new Snapchat video
''I hear that she has just announced that she is pregnant. She didn't tell me. I had to read it on social media. I'm always going to be there for my kids [if] we're not married. We're not together but my kids are everything to me.
''I don't know if it's true that she is pregnant or not, time will tell, but in the meantime I'm there for Lamaisah. She's everything to me. If there is another kid then I am going to be there to show my support and be there for Faryal, but we both think it's not healthy to be together.
''It's not healthy for the kids. I don't want my children to see us fighting. We are officially not together.''
While informing about his current activities, Amir Khan said that he is getting back to work in the gym, fully focused on a ring return by the end of the year. Khan has been out of the ring since May of 2016, when he moved up to a catch-weight of 155-pounds and suffered a vicious knockout loss at the hands of Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.
The biggest fight for Khan would be a showdown with British rival Kell Brook - but Amir has refused to take part in the bout unless Brook dumps promoter Eddie Hearn.
Khan plans to sit down with his adviser, Al Haymon, to finalize a date and opponent for a comeback fight.
