LONDON: Amir Khan’s wife Faryal has claimed that her husband defied his family to prove his love to her by tearing up a pre-nuptial agreement. As the family feud rumbles on, Faryal has claimed that she was asked to sign a pre-nup which protected the £30million boxer before their lavish wedding. But Faryal has claimed that he has torn the agreement up. Speaking about their bitter feud, the 25-year-old said: “Amir picked me because he fell in love with me. “I was the first outsider and asking me to marry him was the first big decision he made for himself. “I think there was jealousy. Two weeks before my wedding I was asked to sign a pre-nup.” Faryal claimed that she was given the legal document to sign while her future husband was at a training camp. “I signed it because I wanted to prove I didn’t want the money,” she told the Daily Mail, adding that the document itself was a sign of disrespect in their culture. But after falling pregnant with their daughter Lamaisah, who is now two-years-old, the British boxer cancelled the agreement. “It was his choice but it made me happy because it showed he loved me,” she said.
If the pre-nuptial agreement had not been destroyed it would have stopped Faryal from claiming half of the boxer’s fortune in the event of a split. Elsewhere in the shocking interview, she claimed she was attacked by his sister while carrying the boxer’s first child. Tempers flared earlier this month when Faryal and Amir’s family came to blows over her choice of clothing and her faith – and the drama looks set to rage on. In her latest in-depth interview, Faryal has opened up about an incident that left her terrified while she was living in the same house as her sister-in-law. “She grabbed my hair and slapped my head. I was eight months’ pregnant.” But it was such a shocking claim that the brunette beauty claims her husband didn’t even believe her at first, saying: ‘I told Amir but he didn’t believe me because he couldn’t believe me.'” “I was so lonely and scared.” Despite the shocking claims, Amir’s sister previously hit back at the suggestions she laid her hands on Farayl, saying: “Do I look like I can beat someone up?” While Amir found himself caught in the middle, Faryal says that this all changed when he became a father. She claims that the boxer felt hurt by his family’s behaviour and couldn’t understand why they were acting so badly toward her. “He said: ‘I looked after my parents. Why am I being treated like this?’ They couldn’t’t deal with him wanting to be his own person and make his own decisions.” “I’ve put up with so much emotional abuse. I will fight for Amir for ever and I will be with him for ever.” Despite the toxic relationship she shares with her husband’s family, Faryal insists that she’s determined to put things right and raise awareness for other women in similar situations. “There is, though, one thing I can be sure about: when we return to Bolton I am determined to raise awareness for young Muslim women. I would be a disgraced single mother with a two-year-old daughter if my husband hadn’t supported me. “It was wrong the way they treated me – very wrong,” she added.
