ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan yesterday rejected a report suggesting his recent marriage with TV personality Reham Khan was on the rocks.

"I am shocked at a TV channel making slanderous statement about my marriage. I strongly urge the media to desist from such baseless statements," said the former cricketer-turned politician in a message sent to his 2.85 million followers on Twitter.

According to the report, which was aired on a TV channel and also published in a local newspaper, Reham was staying at Imran's Bani Gala residence even though she was not welcome there any longer. The report, citing the editor of a local daily newspaper, claimed that Imran had recently returned from London where he had recently stayed with his children and Jemima, his ex-wife. Jemima had tweeted photos of Imran and her sons posing together on her Instagram account during the PTI chairman's stay in London.
