Reham Khan, former wife of cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan, has accused him of being "unfaithful", alleging that the chairman of the opposition Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) "had an extramarital affair with Bushra Bibi for years".
However, the report of Khan's wedding taking place on January 1 was refuted by the party and instead pictures of the nikkah ceremony were shared a few days back with the party stating that the wedding had taken place on Feb 18.
Personal lives of political leaders remained under discussion during the Punjab Assembly session on Monday in which the PTI members justified the third marriage of Imran Khan while citing the examples of marriages of Shahbaz Sharif.
Khan has been divorced twice, having been married to socialite Jemima Goldsmith and journalist Reham Khan. If you don't then we should tell you that Imran Khan's wife, Bushra Maneka, is in her 40s. However, he had rejected media reports that he had secretly married Bushra on January 1. Khan said that she had sought some time to consult her family, especially her children, before making any decision. "He got closer to her when some of political predictions she made about his party came true".
He said that he had only sent a wedding proposal to her and was awaiting her response. A photo of the couple showed Mr Khan wearing a dark blazer over a traditional white shalwar kameez, while Ms Maneka is clad head-to-feet in a grey robe with a red veil covering her face. "Later, both developed some intimacy and, finally, Ms Bushra took divorce from her husband and contracted marriage with Mr Khan early last month", the sources said. My interest in her lies in the fact that I have not seen or met anyone with her level of spirituality.
Earlier this year, In the corridor of media there was abuzz with reports of the PTI chief Khan tying the knot for a third time with the lady he used to visit for spiritual supervision and guidence.
"What was the point of lying about it?"
