Amir Khan’s Wife Wanted Him To Deny Cheating Allegations He Made Her Against By Saying He Was Hacked But He Refused

Yesterday morning, Amir Khan went on Twitter and accused his wife of cheating on him with fellow boxer Anthony Joshua. Many people thought Khan was hacked but he later confirmed via a Snapchat video that the tweets were genuine.

According the Daily Mail, his wife, Makhdoom, wanted Khan to lie to everybody and say he was hacked so that they could work things out but he refused.

A source close to the family told MailOnline, Makhdoom called her husband in Dubai pleading to stay together for the sake of their daughter Lamaisah, two.

The source claims Makhdoom came up with the idea that the pair should announce that their Twitter accounts have been hacked and tell the media as a “way out”.

The source said: “Amir stood his ground and told her that it was over and that he had mentally decided to move on from her and that he was unable to take it anymore.

“He hung up on her and when she texted again with threatening messages, he released video message to put an end to it all.”

Makhdoom’s family also got in touch with Khan’s family in Bolton to offer an olive branch as a symbol for the couple to reconcile, the sourced added.

Meanwhile, the boxer’s dad and brother say they had nothing to do with the couple’s public feud after Makhdoom accused his family of trying to destroy their marriage.

It comes after Makhdoom, 26, tweeted the word “patience” in Arabic this morning just a day after the boxing star confirmed their explosive split with a Snapchat video claiming “it’s all true”.

Still not sure why Khan would want to put his dirty laundry out in public but hey, that’s his business.
