Sniggers On Twitter After Report Of Imran Khan's Marriage Falling Apart

Imran Khan had married Bushra Maneka, his third wife, in February this year.

New Delhi:

Pakistani cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan's third wife Bushra Maneka has left him after a "dispute", a newspaper in the country reported on Tuesday.

According to Urdu newspaper Daily Ummat, the dispute was over Bushra Maneka's son overstaying his welcome at Imran Khan's palatial home in Islamabad. Imran Khan, the chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, married Bushra Maneka - whom he calls his spiritual guide - in February.

The newspaper report suggested that before their wedding, the couple had agreed that no one from Bushra Maneka's family would stay too long at Bani Gala, the home they share.

The presence of Bushra Maneka's son from a former marriage, however, annoyed Imran Khan, said the report.

As the report fueled speculation on the 65-year-old's marital status, his party firmly denied any trouble.

As usual, however, Twitter users readily provided marriage advice and also showed "concern".

"When Khan accepts a divorcee for a wife, why doesn't he accept her children as his own?, writes a user.

"Will Imran ever find true love?," asks a user on Twitter.

Mr Khan's first wife was Jemima Goldsmith. They married in 1995 and divorced after nine years. His second marriage with Reham Khan, then a TV anchor, lasted barely 10 months.

Bushra Maneka, who is in her 40s, is from the Wattoo clan, of which the Manekas are a sub-clan. She was previously married to Khawar Farid Maneka, a senior customs official in Islamabad, according to the Dawn newspaper.
