Boxer Amir Khan has separated from wife Faryal Makhdoom and alleged that she cheated on him with fellow British boxer and heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, according to a series of explosive Tweets that were posted on Friday.

The social media rampage began after the boxer revealed their separation on Twitter.

“So me and the wife Faryal have split,” Khan said. “I’m in Dubai. Wish her all the best.”

The break-up dispute became ugly when Khan began making claims that Makhdoom had moved on with Joshua.

“Faryal moved on quick,” another tweet said. “Always mentioned to me how much she wanted another guy, of all people another boxer.”

Makhdoom, who is a 26-year-old model, shot back at Khan’s allegations, calling her husband a “cheater” and a “bad role model, always around women and alcohol” in posts that have since been removed.

“Accusing other boxers just because your career is finished. Man up,” she said in another deleted Tweet.

“He has the nerve to blast me? The evidence I have on you. It can destroy you. But since I loved you at one point, I’ll just let it go. I’m not the one who’s been in the papers with my pants down Cheater!”

Joshua, who is a British boxing camp and Makhdoom’s purported new love interest, also became involved in the fight on Friday, even saying that he has never met Makhdoom.

Khan and Makhdoom, who got married in 2013, have a past of publicly accusing each other of wrongdoings. Makhdoom went on a social media tirade last year, saying that Khan’s family had bullied her and demanded that she dress more conservatively.

“After all these years. I’m defending a cheat, stuck around for him, always had his back. And I’m a gold digger?” she added. “LOL! He’s given me jack s*** — I pay bills for my daughter myself! It’s like I’m a single mother while he’s messing around.”

Although Khan supported his wife in the feud, the pair appeared on British TV after a sex tape including Khan was leaked and brought additional attention to his past scandals. The 30-year-old has been accused of having affairs with a handful of models while he was married.

“I can hold my head high knowing I’ve given this marriage 100% while amir hasn’t,” Makdhoom said.

She continued: “I think he needs attention because boxing hasn’t been going well, so he’s been acting up.”
