Amir Khan cheated on wife Faryal by sleeping with beautician just 17 days after birth of his second child
Early on Sunday, May 27, former model and wife of boxer Amir Khan cryptically tweeted, “sh*t happens” to her 217,000 followers, and as it turns out, she had a really good reason to do so. Faryal Makhdoom has seemingly made peace with the fact that her husband allegedly cheated on her with a 22-year-old beautician just 17 days after she gave birth to their second child.
Sophia Hammani, the woman who allegedly had a one-night stand with the boxer, claims to have not known that he was still married. She told The Sun that Faryal texted her after she found her number on his phone, and fittingly called him a “f***ing a*****e.”
“What a f***ing a**hole. He makes me sick. I cannot believe this man,” read one of the texts according to Sophia, who also claims that Faryal forgave her for the tryst in their “sisterly” text exchange. Sophia also claims that it was only after returning to her flat that she made the discovery that Amir was still married to Faryal, let alone that he had recently become father to a second child with her.
Faryal had given birth to the couple’s second child, Alayna, on April 24 and Sophia claims that Amir slept with her on May 11. Sophia made the shocking discovery of their still-strong marriage when Amir posted a family photo on Instagram that same night. Faryal and Amar had been on a temporary separation last year.
According to her, she met Amir at the London club Libertine, where her friend group was invited to sit at his table. The duo flirted the night away, before the 31-year-old former World Champion invited her back to the £200-a-night Montcalm Hotel in Shoreditch in East London where he was staying at the time.
She said that after spending the night with the boxer, who is worth £23million, in his hotel room, he asked her to leave with a mere £20 for a cab to her home, which was on the opposite side of London.
“He's disgusting. He slept with me and his wife had just given birth. I nearly threw up when I saw they were still together. I felt so use,” said a furious Sophia, further adding, “That must be every wife's nightmare. That poor woman.”
Amir and Faryal had had a very public spat in August last year, when Amir falsely accused his wife of cheating on him with heavyweight star Anthony Joshua and announcing their separation on Twitter. However, the split didn't last long — the two got back together just ahead of the boxer's ‘I’m A Celeb’ stint.
