LONDON: Jemima Goldsmith, former wife of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Wednesday said that she would sue if Reham Khan s book was published in the United Kingdom.
In her latest tweet, Jemima said that on Reham Khan s book she has been assured that it s too libellous to be published in the UK.
Imran Khan’s former wife went on to say that if it is published in the UK, she will be suing for defamation and breach of privacy on behalf of my (then) 16-year-old son and in relation to the moronic, re-hashed Zionist conspiracy theories,” she said in her tweet.
The autobiography by Reham Khan, 45, the second wife of the World Cup-winning cricket captain, claims to lift the lid on their relationship, with salacious allegations about their private life, including accusations of infidelity.
In the book, she says Imran is not ‘sadiq and amin‘ (honest and righteous) as he kept his third marriage to faith healer Bushner Maneka under wraps for two months. Ever since the manuscript of her book leaked online, several PTI leaders have accused Reham of being part of an “agenda” ahead of Pakistan’s general elections on July 25.
On Reham Khan’s book I’ve been assured that it’s too libellous to be published in the UK but if it is published here, I will be suing for defamation & breach of privacy on behalf of my (then) 16 yr old son & in relation to the moronic, re-hashed Zionist conspiracy theories. Sigh

The couple married in 2015 and divorced acrimoniously a year later. With Pakistan going to the polls on July 25, the book could pose a threat to his hopes of at last seizing the premiership.
