Imran says Jemima not behind anti-Reham smear campaign

Imran says Jemima not behind anti-Reham smear campaign
ISLAMABAD: Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan on Thursday rejected a report by a British newspaper alleging that ex-wife Jemima Goldsmith was trying to break up his new marriage with talk-show host Reham Khan.

"Jemima has always been supportive & the idea that she would ever be behind any kind of smear campaign (against) Reham is absurd as I told The Mail," the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman said on social media website Twitter.

Jemima Goldsmith also retweeted Imran's tweet to her 1.3 million followers.

British newspaper the Daily Mail had quoted an unnamed cousin of Reham's accusing Jemima of being behind negative stories that have recently appeared in the media about Imran's current wife.

"We know what Jemima is doing. We know that she is behind this smear campaign. She doesn't want Imran's marriage to succeed because she is jealous," the Mail quoted Reham's cousin, who it said did not want to be named publicly.

Imran and billionaire Sir James Goldsmith's 41-year-old daughter divorced in 2004 after nine years of marriage.

The former Pakistan captain tied the knot with Reham in January this year after the same British newspaper reported that the two had already married secretly, a claim the couple denies.
