Imran Khan’s Ex-Wife Jemima Goldsmith Threatens Reham Khan With Defamation Over Tell-All Book

Dubbing Imran Khan as ‘Mr U-turn’, Reham Khan said Imran warming up to the military reeks of political opportunism and everyone should be wary of him.

New Delhi: Jemima Goldsmith, the British-born first wife of Pakistani cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan, has threatened to sue his second wife Reham Khan for defamation if her upcoming tell-all book is released in the United Kingdom.

The book is causing a political storm in Pakistan ahead of the general elections in July for taking to task the PM hopeful on issues ranging from the backing of extremist groups to the alleged culture of sexual harassment in his party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

In an exclusive conversation with CNN-News18, Reham said the book tells what the Pakistan’s electorate must know before they decide to vote for him. Dubbing Khan as ‘Mr U-turn’, she said Imran warming up to the military reeks of political opportunism and everyone should be wary of him.

Hitting out at Reham over the book, Jemima tweeted that she would sue for defamation on behalf of her son.

Khan is currently married to spiritual guide Bushra Maneka. His first marriage was with Jemima, daughter of a British billionaire, in 1995, which lasted nine years. Khan has two sons from her. His second marriage with TV anchor Reham Khan in 2015 ended after a brief 10 months.

Although critics have accused Reham of being part of a political agenda aimed at maligning Imran Khan and his party PTI, she rubbished the charges and said that the book, her autobiography, only contains what she observed in her personal relationships, as a daughter and as a journalist.

The tell-all book, Reham said, would also reveal instances of sexual coercion or favours, including some that allegedly directly relate to Khan. Reham said sexual favours have been used to give out powerful positions. Some of these are related to PTI. “Sadly in Pakistan, this is not such a big problem,” she said.
