The father of Amir Khan has spoken out about the rumours that a former employee leaked the adult video of the boxer online. Amir and his wife Faryal appeared on This Morning yesterday to talk about the divorce rumours and question who leaked the X-rated footage.
During the discussion Faryal was asked who she believed leaked the footage and she said: “I have no idea – it could be a jealous girlfriend passing it on or a former employee who was fired from the Amir Khan foundation. I’m not saying it’s a family member, but the timing is strange – it happened now for a reason.”
Now Amir’s father Sajjad Khan has spoken out on behalf of the companies Amir is involved with which includes Khan Boxing, Khan Productions and the Khan foundation. Sajjad has voiced his opinion and said that it’s implausible that a former employee was responsible as he commented: “A few staff have lost their jobs but do I think it was one of them? Absolutely not.” He admitted that the boxer’s sports empire have been forced to make redundancies in the past but that these were only on business terms.
Sajjad claimed that he is as clueless as everyone else when it comes to the video as he noted: “I have no idea who was responsible for leaking the video of my son – but I cannot imagine it was one of our staff or former staff even if his wife is suggesting this.” He added: “I do think that the only person or people who leaked the video were the ones who recorded it and I have no idea who that was.”
Tensions ran high between Amir’s father and Faryal after she accused her in-laws of bullying and abuse, Sajjad branded Faryal “very evil” and hinted that a divorce was on the cards. Despite the recent drama the family are slowly trying to get back to normal as Sajjad said: “I’m speaking to Amir and hopefully will see him soon. Everything will be OK. Time heals.”
