Six months in, rumours that the marriage was falling apart began to circulate. While the couple was seen together on occasion, Imran last month tweeted an apparent refutation of the rumours:
“I am shocked at a tv channel making slanderous statement abt my marriage. I strongly urge the media to desist from such baseless statements”
“The two were just not getting along.
She wanted to get involved with politics and that is not what Khan wanted at all. She just did not want to sit at home.”
“There were teething problems as well over other issues which were being resolved but this was a major issue — she wanted to get into politics and was not ready to back down,” the source said.
Earlier in August this year the PTI chief had announced that Reham Khan, will not be playing an active role in party affairs, following “attacks” on his then wife in the aftermath of the party’s defeat in the NA-19 (Haripur) by-polls.
The PTI chairman and television journalist Reham Khan had tied the knot in a simple nikkah ceremony which took place in January this year at Khan’s Bani Gala residence.
The nikkah, which was a low-key affair, was conducted by Mufti Saeed and was followed by a photo session. The wedding had captivated the entire country, with television channels going all out to cover the event and furnished their audience with details of wedding sherwani and chappals. Pak Destiny
