Written By Bakari Simpson: Geez, this is messy. It would appear that husband and wife, Amir Khan and Faryal Makhdoom, are publicly squabbling again. Last year the two aired some of their internal family beef via Twitter. Faryal expressed that the family made her feel ostracized and alienated. Khan essentially confirmed this by telling both sides to work together. This past Friday Amir revealed that the days of reconciliation are at an end. The message was once again transmitted via his Twitter account.
Amir Khan announced that they would be getting divorce only after accusing his wife of infidelity. Opting not to stop there, Amir Khan went even further by ousting the supposed perpetrator. King Khan accused none other than IBF, WBA and IBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua of being the culprit. In response Joshua quickly denounced all involvement.
The good-natured behemoth replied by posting the humorous song “It wasn’t me.” The once popular song, made by reggae artist Shaggy, revolves around a man denying his infidelity. The funny thing though, is in the song the guy WAS guilty of infidelity!
In the end, the whole scenario feels like the recent Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna public fall out. Due to hurt feelings caused by abandonment and believing himself to have been conned Rob grabbed his phone. With the powerful device in his hands Rob began simping with ferocity. Thinking himself to be slandering Blac Chyna he did little more than reveal himself to be a first-rate sucka. Rob accused Chyna of cheating, stealing and be an underhanded individual. In the end he would even air some of her nude pictures. It was all very sad and pathetic.
Khan is following in those same simpin’ steps with precision.
Even if Joshua did knock his wife off, why is Amir Khan telling the world about it? Whatever his rationale is Khan is adamant about informing the public of the play-by-play. He has made numerous videos on the subject. Khan even made it a point to mention that his phone had not been hacked, everything was legit. In his mind the infidelity was real and Amir wanted the world to know in real-time.
All in all, this is a sad scenario. At the very least Amir Khan and his wife are dissolving their marriage in a very public and embarrassing way. At the very worst AJ did backdoor Amir’s wife and now Khan made it all front-page news. Again, I was not there, so I can’t say either way. Yet, no matter how you slice it, it’s an ugly scene. Let’s hope that cooler, and quieter, heads can prevail so that they can discontinue their union as discretely as possible.
But oh boy, this is messy!
