Imran Khan breaks silence: Never told Reham to make chappatis, stay at home
They announced their decision to split on October 30 amid reports that Imran objected to her meddling in politics
New Delhi: Days after the divorce from his second wife, former Pakistan captain Imran Khan on claimed his innocence saying he never asked Reham to stay home and make chappatis.
Talking in Aaj Tak program Seedhi Baat, the World Cup winner said a "wrong picture is being painted" about the whole affair, in which he is shown as the perpetrator of domestic crime.
The cricket legend-turned-politician's marriage to Reham lasted just 10 months. The former TV journalist had claimed that she was told that she should be making chapatis in the kitchen and not to be seen outside.
They announced their decision to split on October 30 amid reports that Imran objected to her meddling in politics.
62-year-old Imran's marriage to Reham was his second after his first marriage with English heiress Jemima Goldsmith for nine years ended in divorce in June, 2004.
Reham Khan, a divorced mother of three, left a job on regional BBC news and moved back to Pakistan in 2013.
After his retirement from cricket, Imran launched his political party Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI).
