Amir khan and Faryal Makhdoom went through a public marriage break down last year, when khan announced he was divorcing wife Faryal.
They were recently reunited and have given a brief explanation of why things went haywire.
The couple spoke on the issues they were having and have told it was lack of communication. The pair told that being in other countries at the time made the issue worse.
Loose woman panelist Jane Moore asked the pair if they would like to put the issues of 2017 behind them?
Khan responded: ”You want to change things at times, the way it went public wasn’t nice, anger sometimes takes over.
”That happened in 2017. Hopefully going into 2018 we’ve both put that behind us, we’ve got a lovely baby coming this year, we have also have Lamaisah our daughter, my boxing career, [I will] get some good fights in.
He added: ‘What went wrong? A lack of communication”.
Faryal said: ”It was just a misunderstanding. I was in England (and) he was in Dubai, he thought he was a bit cool in Dubai doing some tweets”.
Khan also admitted that the injury to his hand also contributed to a bad mindset.
He said: ”Going through the hand injury that I had, not being in the boxing ring, being away from my family, going through a lot of stuff in my life, I think the best place for me is to be in the boxing ring.
”When I was away from that, it took me all over the place. I lost that focus and that structure. Not being in the gym, not training, when you have all that downtime you have all that energy in your body.
Th panel asked khan, what was the moment which encouraged you to change? to whic Khan replied: ”My family were very supportive, my parents, they helped me when I said I don’t know what to do.
”I came to a stage where I didn’t know what to do with my life. I was wrecking my marriage, I wasn’t boxing, I had a hand injury, I didn’t know where to go, what to do… ‘I started praying. That’s one of the [things that] put me on the right path”.
Khan also said the reality show I’m A Celebrity helped bring his marriage back as it took him away from all the negative drama.
He said: ”Going to the jungle definitely helped. For me it was good to get away, it was a detox for me. ‘I didn’t watch the show before I went on. If I’d have seen it before I wouldn’t have gone on it. ‘Now people have seen the real side of me. I’m a scaredy cat!”
Faryal also told about the difficulties on her second pregnancy after te birth of Lamaisah 2015.
She said: ”It’s been OK. Not bad. I think my first child was easier but this pregnancy was tougher.
”I have a pelvic problem – public dysfunction (disorder). It’s difficult to get up sometimes. Amir helps me get up.
”My daughter was 8lbs – I carry big babies!”
So what are they going to do different to make sure the 2017 repeat does not happen again?
Faryal said: ”We’ve been married for four years, we’ve been with each other for six/ seven years… we’ve never had problems because we always communicate”.
Amir jokingly said: ”(It) feels longer, trust me…. In a good way. I’ve started again”
