Legendary all-rounder and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and Reham Khan have filed for divorce with mutual consent, PTI spokesperson Naeemul Haque said on Friday.
“PTI chairman Imran Khan and Reham Khan have decided to divorce by mutual consent. Due to the sensivity and seriousness of this extremely painful matter it is requested that the media should refrain from any speculation. There will be no further communication in this respect,” Naeemul Haque said on Facebook.
The couple has decided to part ways after 10 months of marriage.
Rumors had been doing the rounds for some time that the couple’s marriage was falling apart.
According to Dawn.com, a source close to the PTI chairman, who asked not to be named, said the two were “just not getting along.”
“She wanted to get involved with politics and that is not what Khan wanted at all. She just did not want to sit at home.”
The PTI chairman and television journalist Reham Khan had tied the knot in a simple nikkah ceremony which took place in January this year at Khan’s Bani Gala residence.
Reham Khan is a British Pakistani journalist who started her career in the BBC as a weather forecaster. Later, she worked for the network as a broadcast journalist.
Imran Khan was previously married to English journalist and activist Jemima Goldsmith for nine years. The marriage ended amicably in 2004 with Goldsmith stating that she was unable to adapt to life in Pakistan.
