LONDON: It appears that Pakistani-origin British boxer Aamir Khan has thrown his weight behind his glamorous wife in her public spat with his family, but has threatened to cut both sides out of life if the 'silly' squabble continues

In a carefully worded issued statement on his social media accounts, Khan appeared to be siding with his wife, stating: "I have supported my wife, and that's because she was in the right. Since I've been married I've seen how my family and siblings have treated her. It wasn’t fair. “It was a private matter and should've kept private.”

Expressing his frustration over the role played by his family, he said that “My siblings were posting on social media over and over again. I have asked my father to have them remove it and no one listened to me.

"I was patient and kept quiet but Faryal  said she couldn’t take it anymore and had to speak up. So she did."

However, Khan fell short of supporting his wife on this issue unconditionally, as he maintained that though he supported his wife when it came to ‘family bothering her or upsetting her’, “But I did not support Siblings or my wife to be this childish all over the media, crying and bashing one another.” “Its really getting out of control and needs an end,” the statement said.  

On Twitter, the former unified lighter-welterweight world champion posted : ”I apologise on the silly picture and message my wife Faryal put up,” he added, “here is me working my ass off helping the less fortunate with charity dinners and my family and wife are destroying (SIC) my name.”

Categorically denying the news claimed by a British tabloid that the family row is built up for a Kardashians-style reality show called, 'Home With The Khans'. “There is NO reality TV show,” Khan stated.

Calling the family spat as a ‘childish behaviour’ and calling on both the parties to end the feud, Aamir said: "My parents are my parents and my wife is my wife. Whatever misunderstanding has happened they should keep it private. Both parties need to stop this. I've had enough." In-laws say Faryal`s dress code was un-Islamic

In their first interview to a TV channel, since the domestic dispute made headlines in the international media, Khan's parents rubbished her allegations, claiming they never so much as laid a hand on her and treated Faryal like their own daughter.

"Faryal was adopting a dress code which in the Islamic faith was not acceptable. I am a father to two daughters whom I have treated exactly the same way as I have treated Faryal," said Sajjad Khan.
