Amir Khan and Faryal Makhdoom have been through a lot. They’ve broken up and made up, dealt with leaked sexually explicit videos, the birth of their children and drama with the in-laws. The Khans had all the makings of a reality TV show and the stars have finally aligned!
The Pakistani-British boxer and his influencer wife’s new BBC Three documentary called Meet The Khans is finally on air and it seems like the couple are going head to head with the Kardashians.
They’ve spoken about juggling their relationship, career pressures and a young family, all under the glare of modern media. They’re also dropping some bombs about the dynamics of their relationship, which has been at a crossroads (and on the news) for almost seven years.
Khan spoke about his hometown of Bolton, where the show was shot, and said his marriage was rocky during the peak of his career, as a lot of attention from women and fame came with it. While the couple’s relationship was plagued by cheating scandals in the past, the boxer insisted that he’s a ‘changed man’ now.
Another rather strange revelation from the show was that Makhdoom hasn’t ever watched any of her husband’s matches. She said it’s because she doesn’t like to see him get hit.
