Controversies are a part of being a celebrity. If you are famous people will want to know the dirt on you. True or false, it will make it to the DDL or the Digital Dirty Laundry. Imran Khan's PTI may have won in Pakistan but even before the first vote was cast, Khan's first wife Reham Khan has made some startling revelations in her book. Khan, it seems, has been busy spreading the fruits of his loins.
The e-version of the autobiographical book of Reham Khan (former wife of Imran) was finally released on Amazon Kindle and the leaked excerpts from the book have created massive controversy. In yet another startling revelation, Reham in her book has claimed that Imran had five illegitimate children, some of whom are Indian.
As per the book, Reham claims that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief confided to her about his “illegitimate” children after their marriage in 2015. Imran allegedly made the remarks while discussing Tyrian White, the daughter he had with now deceased American heiress Sita White. Reham has quoted Imran as saying, “You know she isn’t the only one I have… There are 5 in total, that I know of”.
Khan was apparently very close to late Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. They both went to Oxford and were reportedly quite close. In Khan's biography, writer Christopher Sandford reveals how Benazir was smitten and how her mother apparently wanted the two to get married.
Back to Reham's leaked book and we can't get over this one excerpt. During the conversation about Sita White, Reham claims Imran said, “You know she isn’t the only one I have… There are 5 in total, that I know of”.
“What? You have five illegitimate children! How do you know?” Reham asked.
“Well, the mothers told me,” Imran replied.
“All [Sita] White’s?”
“No, some are Indians. The eldest is 34 now.”
“How Imran? Why did the mother not come out with it?”
“Because she was over the moon! She had been married for ages and couldn’t get pregnant. She was overjoyed, promised to keep it a secret, and begged to keep it. So I said OK.”
“And the rest? Why did they never speak?” Reham asked him.
“Well, because they were all married and they didn’t want their marriages to be destroyed,” Imran said.
“Does anyone else know?”
“Only Jemima does. I told her.”
The book's Kindle version releases on Amazon on August 31. We have booked our copy already.
