Islamabad, Feb 22: Reham Khan, the second wife of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan, on Thursday called cricketer-turned-politician’s third marriage with Bushra Maneka a ‘political misadventure’. In an interview with WION, Reham Khan said that Imran Khan is free to marry whoever he wants.
Reacting to Imran Khan’s third marriage, Reham Khan said, “Those who seek power need to make good judgments.” She also said she doesn’t want to be called Imran Khan’s ex-wife and clarified that she wasn’t the part of his political life.
Earlier in an interview with The Times, Reham alleged that Imran Khan knew Bushra Maneka for the last three years and continued to see her even during her short-lived marriage with the former cricketer-turned-politician. “Imran Khan was in contact with Bushra three years ago when I was his wife and he is not the truthful man,” she said.
Imran Khan, 65, tied the knot with Bushra Maneka in a private ceremony in Lahore on Sunday. Bushra was married to Khawar Farid Maneka, a senior customs official in Islamabad and is the mother of five children.
Imran had first married British socialist Jemima Goldsmith in 1995 that ended in divorce after nine years in 2004. His second marriage with Reham, then a TV anchor, lasted barely for 10 months.
