As if the indication of partying with a mystery woman in a Dubai nightclub wasn’t an indication, Amir Khan has confirmed that he has filed for divorce with estranged wife Faryal Makhdoom.

The British boxer, who parted ways with Makhdoom after a spat on Twitter, took to social media to confirm the news.

“So, me and Faryal are not together. I have filed for a divorce,” Khan, 30, said through a Snapchat story.

However, the surprising part of his story was Khan saying that he didn’t know Makhdoom, 26, was expecting another child, and that he learned the news on social media. The couple has three-year-old daughter, Lamaisah.

“I hear that she has just announced that she is pregnant. She didn’t tell me. I had to read it on social media,” Khan went on.

“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.”

The 2004 Olympic silver medallist, however, vowed to be always there for his children.

“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.

“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.”
