The boxer has now offered a public apology to his wife, stating that he was provoked into cheating after many women contacted him on his Instagram account:

Khan said on his Instagram, adding that his wife is not to blame. “I thank her for the help she got me. I like to apologise to those who I may have hurt. I made a mistake and I was provoked when they slip into my DMs.”

Faryal had fuelled separation rumors by posting a cryptic note on her Instagram stories on Friday: “Fall in love with someone who doesn’t make you think love is hard.”

According to Daily Mail, sources have that revealed the couple, who have been married for 10 years, had separated while Faryal decides if she wishes to end their marriage or not.

‘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.’
