Boxer Amir Khan’s family is still reportedly feuding with each other after his mother was in “floods of tears”.
His mother Falak was apparently in tears after she was left ringing his doorbell when she went to his house following the announcement that he was expecting another baby.
She was overjoyed at the announcement that the couple made on social media.
But when she went to see him, Falak was left ringing his doorbell and was unable to see him.
Khan has been in public feud with his parents since 2016 after his wife Faryal Makhdoom accused them of bullying her.
They called her a “bad mother” and branded her “evil”. But in August 2019, Khan claimed that he has put the feud behind him.
He said: “I speak to them all the time – everything is cool between them.
“I’m in a sport where one punch can change your life, and I thought, ‘be nice to everyone’.”
However, according to The Sun, things between the family have deteriorated. A source close to the family said:
“Amir is banned from talking to his parents by Faryal and her mother, who also ensure that he doesn’t mix with them.
“The fight took an ugly turn when Amir and Faryal announced that they were expecting their third child.
“Amir’s parents were joyous at the news but only found out via the media.
“In Islamic tradition, the children are supposed to share good news with their parents first, and Amir’s parents were disappointed they chose to announce it publicly.
“Falak was overjoyed and rang Amir, who was at home. He confirmed the news, and despite the bad blood she darted around to see him.
“But she was unable to see him. After an hour, she returned home in tears, crying and sobbing since.”
“Every aspect of his life is controlled by his wife and mother-in-law, who have banned him from talking to his own parents.”
Despite the claims, a spokesperson for Amir Khan said he was not home at the time.
The public row between Amir Khan’s family in 2016 had led to boxer announcing that he would be divorcing his wife. He called it off when she announced that she was pregnant with their second child.
Khan had also wrongly accused Faryal of cheating on him with Anthony Joshua but later explained that he made a mistake.
