Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan’s ex wife Reham is planning to release a tell-all book that details her journey as a daughter, wife and parents. Excerpts of the book have reportedly leaked online, and it is said to contain scandalous details about her former husband Imran, who heads the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf.
According to media reports, the book details Imran’s numerous flings as well as homosexual affairs. Reham has reportedly claimed that Imran has had relationships with Pakistani actor Hamza Ali Abbasi and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf worker Murad Saeed. She has also claimed that Pakistani cricketer Wasim Akram used his late wife to fulfill his sexual fantasies, reports indicate.
Responding to these allegations, Saeed wrote on Twitter: “I have nothing to say about Reham Khan’s allegations and whatever filth the woman’s written about me or anyone. It’s shameful beyond words. It’s pretty obvious whose hands she’s playing in, the woman and her aides have totally lost the plot.”
Reham, meanwhile, insists that the book is not about Imran or anyone else, but about herself.
“It’s an expose of me as a daughter, as a wife, as a parent,” she told NDTV. “My experiences may help someone. I have shared my mistakes. Why did I marry the man I married? That’s something girls should be made aware of. My motivation to improve awareness and suggest where we go wrong as human beings. When they go to vote, it will be helpful.”
Reham, who was married to Imran for 10 months in 2015, also said the book is in public interest, and not revenge. “What somebody does in their bedroom should be none of my business or your business or anyone’s business. But when those antics are connected to merit, when they are connected to someone’s ability to govern – or lack of ability in this case – then of course it is public interest. It is not about an extra-marital affair,” she said.
