Boxer Amir Khan and wife claims sex tape leak was ‘Revenge’ by someone close as he misses his brothers wedding!
Boxer Amir Khan appeared on TV today (MON) claiming a sex tape was leaked by someone ‘close’ to his family in an act of revenge – the day after he missed his brother’s wedding reception following a long-running family feud.
The former world champ’s brother Haroon celebrated his marriage to wife Arifa in front of 1,000 guests in a lavish bash.
But while his family hosted a party at Bolton FC’s Macron Stadium, Amir was 5,000 miles away in San Francisco preparing for his next bout.
However Amir and his wife Faryal vowed to stay together today on This Morning and claimed the lewd video of Khan reportedly performing a sex act on himself on Skype to a female model was from a ‘long, long time ago’.
The couple did attend the couple’s wedding in Pakistan last year, but he decided to dodge the pair’s UK ceremony.
Faryal, 25, last month accused his sisters of bullying her and posted a naked picture of Haroon online revealing the family rift.
A source said: “The past few week have been incredibly difficult for Amir. He loves his wife but he loves his parents and his siblings too.
“He’s also close to Haroon because both of them are boxers so to miss his wedding celebration has caused him some angst.
“But they both understand that he’s in the middle of a training camp and he can’t interrupt that to attend the celebration.
“Even though it can’t be avoided he is gutted to miss such an important family occasion.
“He has a rough time of it in lately and having his closest loved ones constantly fighting so publically has taken its toll.
“Haroon understands why his brother couldn’t make it but it would have been a perfect chance to try to put a hellish few months behind the family.”
Faryal took a swipe at the family in an online post captioned: “My dressing is an issue? Double standards? “Like Harry laying naked and drunk at a girl’s house, sisters wearing no ‘dupatta’ I guess that’s ok bcos that’s their blood and I’m just a daughter-in-law.”
She later apologised for making the image public but the family feud has shown no signs of ending, despite Amir, 30, warning Faryal and his own family they would lose a “husband and a son” if it did not end.
Earlier this week, former world champion Amir also found himself embroiled in a sex tape scandal after footage of him performing a sex act on himself with a female model on Skype was leaked.
Faryal is “devastated” by the revelation but appears to be standing by him after posting Snapchat photographs of him.
She has previously claimed trouble erupted at a previous wedding bash of Haroon’s in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, last August.
Faryal said: “I remember grabbing Amir‘s mother’s hand on the dancefloor. Harry (Haroon) later tweeted something about me not showing them respect at the wedding then he deleted it.”
The pair first tied the knot in Islamabad in December 2015 before throwing another lavish bash in Rawalpindi in August.
Yesterday’s party was organised to celebrate their union with family and friends after problems with Arifa’s visa denied them the chance to do it earlier.
Excited Haroon tweeted on Monday: “Looking forward to my last wedding reception on Saturday, it’s gonna be SICK!!!”
Former Olympic silver medallist Amir is expected to make a comeback in April after a hand operation to fix a long-standing broken hand.
He is planning two fights this year, potentially including a British battle with Kell Brook.
