Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan’s former wife Reham Khan has left Pakistan reportedly after receiving threats. She left the country on Sunday night after her staff received several threat calls, and later confirmed the same to a television channel in Pakistan.
The British Pakistani journalist expressed her anguish over the development citing that she was forced to discontinue her daughter’s schooling. She further said that none of the political parties in the country backed her over the issue.
The 44-year-old TV journalist and Pakistani cricket legend-turned-politician Imran Khan had announced their decision to split amid reports that Imran objected to her meddling in politics.
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.
The development comes ahead of the launch of Reham Khan's autobiography, which is slated to be released soon. It is widely speculated that the book would carry details of her disturbed marriage with Imran Khan.
Speaking to Geo TV, she said that her book would carry all aspects of her life and hence, mention of her relationship with Imran Khan is a part of the same. She, however, added that she has made sure that her book is not written in any anger or anguish.
She further said, "Reports of my association with political parties are false. Fact is that no party wants me to speak. Across the board, I have no backing or support of any political party in Pakistan."
