Amir Khan and Faryal Makhdoom’s marriage has been quite a public affair ever since the trouble with their in-laws surfaced in the media. That fight took place earlier this year and it seemed like Khan had sided with his wife and forsake his family.

However it seems that the boxer was not able to able to sustain that type of pressure as he announced his split from his wife last week. The two got embroiled in a bitter Twitter fight, after which Khan said that he is going to ‘walk away’ from this marriage, leaving his wife trying to make a last effort to patch things up.

Now a family source has revealed that the Khan’s split with wife is going to be the ‘best outcome’ for him. Another added; “Faryal is evil. She took control of Amir and drove him to the extent where he has suffered depression.”

The source went on to add, “Amir was almost held hostage by in-laws and was given ‘either with us or against us’ situation to decide between his family and in laws. That’s tragic. It was clear from very early on that Faryal is interested in Amir’s money and fame and we told Amir so that she’s a bad choice.”

“We all make mistakes. It’s good Amir has reached to the conclusive fact that she’s a cheater, selfish and greedy. This was bound to happen,” the source added.

It appears that the biggest strain on Khan’s marriage was the fact that Makhdoom forced him to pick sides when it came to families. After a public rant from Faryal about her in-laws abusing her, things blew up and Khan eventually had to cut ties with his family. He even fired his father as his manager and decided to keep business away from family.
