Imran Khan's ex-wife threatens to file defamation suit against Reham Khan

Reham Khan's upcoming book has landed into a massive controversy in Pakistan after its manuscript leaked online.

A "pre-action defamation protocol" letter was issued to Reham Khan by a firm in West London on May 30 which claims that manuscript of her upcoming book contains a "litany of malicious, false, incorrect, highly misleading, callous, wanton, tortuous, prejudicial, damaging, libelous and defamatory" imputations against its clients according to the reports in Times of India. She also said that in case Imran Khan becomes the Prime Minister of Pakistan, it would be very unsafe for the country.

PTI lawyer in his petition stated, Reham is working on the agenda of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) and she is carrying out this conspiracy with the help of the former ambassador Hussain Haqqani.

In an interview to CNN-News18, Reham Khan alleged that sexual favours were used to get political positions within PTI ranks.

"I've discussed sexual harassment, sexual coercion and how it is used".

Their relationship has been acrimonious ever since, particularly as Reham is expected to bring out her autobiography. "It is sad that the PMLN and the Pakistan People's Party are actually looking cleaner than the PTI at the moment", the report quoted her as saying.

His supporters allege the book falsely maligns him as a liar and hypocrite who feigns religious faith. She has also accused Khawaja of having an illicit affair with Khan.

On Monday, Reham had said that Imran is not "sadiq and amin" (honest and righteous) in line with Constitutional provisions as he hid this third marriage for two months. As the Pakistan General Elections 2015 are to be held in July, the timing of Reham's autobiography could foment a lot of trouble for the aspirations of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran, who is a prime ministerial hopeful. His first marriage was with Jemima Goldsmith, daughter of a British billionaire, in 1995, which lasted nine years.
