The domestic dispute between British-Pakistani boxer Amir Khan’s family and his wife Faryal Makhdoom took an ugly turn yesterday.
In response to a TV interview in which Amir’s parents conveyed their displeasure over Faryal’s choice of clothes, Faryal shared a nude picture of her brother-in-law Haroon on Snapchat, claiming it was taken when he passed out drunk at a girl’s house.
The dispute began earlier this month when Faryal created a Snapchat story, in which she claimed that she has long suffered harrassment at the hands of her in-laws. She said that her in-laws attempted to hit her and also tried to engineer a divorce when she was nine months pregnant with the couple’s first child. She claimed that her husband was also a victim of their bullying tactics.

Throughout, Amir Khan has maintained silence about the dispute on social media, but that changed with Faryal’s latest Snapchats.
Earlier today, Amir tweeted that he’s “had enough”:
“I apologise for the silly picture and message my wife Faryal put up. Here is me working my a– off… and my wife and my family are just destroying my name…. This is getting to a point where they will lose a husband and a son. Childish behaviour. Both parties need to stop this. I’ve had enough.”
