Imran Khan’s new wife is in emotional turmoil after being trolled over her marriage to the Pakistani cricketer-turned-politician, a friend said today.
Former BBC weather girl Reham Khan married the 62-year-old last month in a secret ceremony that has provoked hostile reaction in Pakistan, online and from his own family.
Some social media users have accused Mrs Khan of being a lesbian and one image even claims to show her in a sex shop.
A producer at Dawn TV, a Pakistan-based private news channel where Mrs Khan works, today told MailOnline that the backlash had left the broadcaster ‘very disturbed’.
The source said: ‘She is not in the right state of mind after seeing the reaction of trolls on social media after news of her marriage with Imran Khan was disclosed.
‘She has not been conducting her daily programme as well. She is very disturbed by the way she is being portrayed on social media.’
