EXCLUSIVE: Amir Khan and his wife Faryal Makhdoom are separated and living apart after the former world champion boxer was caught sexting a model just weeks before their 10th wedding anniversary
Amir Khan and his glamorous Instagram influencer wife Faryal Makhdoom have separated and are currently living apart after the former world champion boxer was caught sexting another woman, MailOnline can exclusively reveal today.
Khan’s tumultuous marriage to the mother of his three children is on the rocks after the sportsman approached bridal model Sumaira online and eventually asked her to send raunchy pictures.
MailOnline can now reveal that Khan and Faryal are separated and living apart. It is understood that the former world champion and Instagram influencer are splitting their time between their homes in Dubai and Britain while Faryal decides whether she wants to end their 10-year marriage.
A source close to the Khan family told MailOnline: ‘Faryal is taking time to think about whether or not to walk away. She’s going through a very difficult time and choosing to focus on her children while she and Amir continue to co-parent.’
MailOnline has asked Mr Khan to comment.

Claims: Earlier this month it was alleged the boxer contacted bridal model Sumaira (pictured) online and told him that he and Faryal were ‘not properly together’
Khan has admitted he ‘regretted’ messaging a model named Sumaira, revealing he’d contacted her out of ‘boredom’ and telling The Sun newspaper that he’d go through therapy to stop him sexting other women.
Initially complimenting her tattoos, the former boxer’s messages quickly turned racy, telling the model that she ‘looked good (in a) G string’, suggesting that she’d had a boob job and asking her to send raunchy pictures, before then trying to meet up with her in person.
Faryal had previously appeared to defend her husband, blasting Sumaira in a lengthy Instagram post after the model claimed Khan had told her his marriage was ‘a bit of a business arrangement’.
It came after Amir shared a birthday tribute to his wife Faryal yesterday. Uploading a photo of them both to Instagram, the sportsman, 36, smiled sweetly next to his wife, 32, as they took part in a pottery class in the snap.
Amir, who is currently in Dubai, captioned it: ‘Happy birthday Faryal. You deserve the world and more,’ with a heart emoji.
He then reiterated the message on his Story as he added another photo of his wife and wrote: Since its 12am in Dubai, I want to wish Faryal a happy birthday.’
In the second post, his wife looked stunning as she posed for a selfie with a full face of glamorous makeup.

The couple have gone through a tumultuous time recently after Faryal posted a lengthy statement in response to her husband’s text exchanges with model Sumaira.
Stating that she ‘refuses to play out my marriage publicly,’ Faryal wrote on Instagram that ‘after a long week of accusations, slander and harassment I have decided it is now time to address the situation that has unfolded.’
Earlier this month, it was alleged the boxer, 36, contacted bridal model Sumaira online and said that he and Faryal, 31, were ‘not properly together’ and that their marriage was ‘a bit of a business arrangement’.
Amir later hit out at the claims in a chat with Geo News, claiming Sumaira had sent him raunchy pictures unsolicited.
Addressing his denial, Sumaira, 25, shared a TikTok video in which she accused the boxer of lying and threatened to disclose more screenshots of their conversations, prompting his wife Faryal, 31, to address the remarks in an Instagram Story.
Faryal, who shares three children with boxer Amir, has in a new statement described Sumaira’s actions as a ‘hate campaign’ and has denied that she is ‘responsible for Sumaria’s current mental state.’
Implying that she is standing by Amir, Faryal went on to state that ‘the whole world is aware of his track record’ and insists that Sumaira must have been aware he was married when she sent him revealing photos.
‘Over the duration of the last 7 days, I had had private conversations of mine dissected and torn apart by an alleged ‘legal representative’ acting on behalf of Sumaira, who has taken to social media with what I can only describe as a hate campaign,’ Faryal wrote.
‘My name has been used in almost every single story she has posted in a bid to tarnish my reputation and name label me as not only a woman who has no ‘self respect’ but Amir’s supporter and enabler in these circumstances, all because I refuse to publicise the private dealings I have with my husband.’
‘How I deal with my marriage and my husband is not the concern of anyone else. I refuse to play out my marriage publicly, the situation has been humiliating enough for me and I will not further play in the spectacle created by others in order to satisfy their desires.
‘I will stand strong in my stance that I did not owe Sumaira anything more than a civil conversation.’
Faryal then addressed Sumaria’s claims that she was unaware Amir was married, writing: ‘This woman was not under the impression that Amir was a single bachelor, yet she continued on speaking to him whilst gathering her evidence to take to social media.’
Revealing what she said to Sumaria in a ‘civil conversation’ Fayral wrote that ‘I knew what the outcome of this situation would be and I forewarned her not to take this to social media.’
‘I explained that the situation would cause immense embarrassment not only for her but for my family also and that in the end no one wins.’
‘I am a woman who receives abuse on a daily basis simply for existing and I knew she would also receive the same for even entertaining a married man, no matter what spin she put on the story.’
‘I’m now being made responsible for Sumaria’s current mental state. Her ‘legal representaive has claimed that Sumaria suffering with her mental health as a result of her social media presence and exposures in her exchanges with my husband Amir and this has somehow become my fault too.’
‘I was the one who was disrespected, lied to and embroiled in scandal and once again, it has become my fault.’
‘Amir and Sumera are both adults who engaged in consented communication. They did not consult me when exchanging messages nor did they consider or respect me when building a “bond.”‘
‘I will not be dragged through the mud now for not “supporting another woman”. This woman had no respect or regard for me as a woman and as Amir’s wife. There was also no consideration of my mental health.’
‘I am not in control of Amir’s actions not those of Sumaira. I had a civil conversation with her which is more than most women in my position would be willing to do.’
Faryal finished her statement by addressing Amir’s previous ‘scandals,’ explaining: ‘I am being criticised for being Amir’s wife, for still staying with him knowing his “track record”.
‘This is the man I am married too and have three young children with. The whole world is aware of his track record, his reputation precedes him, why would you as a single woman want to engage in a conversation with him at all?’
‘My focus is my children and shielding them from all that is happening.’
