BOXER Amir Khan has ended the feud with his parents three years after they branded his wife “evil.”

Khan and his parents — Shah and Falak — had a public fall out in 2016 after his wife, Faryal Makhdoom, accused them of bullying and violence.

Recently, Amir’s parents said they hadn’t spoken to the boxer for six months.

But they now seemed to have cleared the air.

Amir told the Mirror: “I speak to them all the time – everything is cool between them.

“I’m in a sport where one punch can change your life, and I thought, ‘Be nice to everyone’.”

Earlier this year, Shah accused Faryal and her mother for trying to control his life and create a wedge between him and his family.

Speaking to MailOnline in May, Shah said: “Amir’s wife and mother-in-law have teamed up, 100 per cent. They’re in his head, both of them. They want to control everything about Amir. They’re running the show. They want to run everything in his life. We said fine, carry on with it. We’ve taken a step back.

“But I don’t know why he stopped talking to us. I have no idea. They keep pumping his head with ‘oh they’ve (Khan family) ripped you off. They say that I’ve robbed him. They’ve turned him against us.”

Amir and Faryal married six years ago and they have two children together. They went through a rocky patch in 2017 after Amir accused Faryal of cheating with his boxing rival Anthony Joshua. He was also linked to other woman.

But the duo decided to give their marriage another go after finding out that Faryal was pregnant with their second child.

“We didn’t go through with the divorce because it’s banned in Islam when a girl is pregnant,” he was quoted as saying. “I’ve learned my lesson. It was a wake-up call for us both and it will only make us stronger. I think we will be married forever.”
