British-Pakistani boxer Amir Khan and Faryal Makhdoom have got their own Kardashian-style show: a BBC Three documentary titled Meet The Khans: Big In Bolton, in which the couple gave fans a sneak peek into their lives and relationship.
During the show, Faryal reportedly said that Amir no longer cheats on her because he’s an “old man” now.
“We’ve been through hell and back,” said Faryal, while talking about the various scandals over the year. It is pertinent to mention here that Amir has been accused of cheating more than nine times.
“He was never able to enjoy his youth because of all his hard work, so he never really got it out of his system. He’d get caught in the wrong places,” said Faryal while explaining the reasons behind her husband’s infidelity.
“We’ve moved on. The past is the past, we were young, we grew up together – the bad and the good,” she said further, adding: “Amir was so famous and so young when I first started dating him and married him, and now it’s like… he’s an old man!”
The social media influencer further said that labels like “gold-digger” and “doormat” deeply upset her.
Agreeing with Faryal, Amir said: “It changes with time. When you have three kids, it changes your responsibilities. I’ve had that crazy life before, now I’m a changed man.”
Meanwhile, during an in-camera therapy session, Faryal, in between tears, tells her therapist: “My relationship still gets judged for what I’ve been through. A lot of people have ups and downs – the only difference is my marriage is quite public. I married a celebrity.”
Faryal and Amir’s real life has been nothing short of a reality series marked with a long feud with the in-laws followed by an emotional reunion, cheating allegations, extramarital affairs and public scandals. The couple has three kids, Lamaisah aged 6, Alayna aged 2 and Muhammad Zaviyar aged 8 months.
Amir is also no stranger to reality tv – he has also taken part in I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, Countdown, Beat the Star, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and Celebrity Juice.
