Rumours have been floating around about Imran Khan’s alleged third marriage.

After denying any marriage, Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) party secretariat released a statement confirming that their Chairman has proposed marriage to Bushra Maneka.

The statement read:

‘To set the record straight, Mr Khan proposed marriage to Ms Bushra Maneka; but Ms Maneka asked for time for a final decision after consulting her family, including her children.’

Ms Maneka is believed to be a respected faith healer, whom Imran Khan has been seeking spiritual support from.

The official statement from PTI also stated that the reports of their leader’s rumoured marriage had put an “unacceptable burden” on Maneka and Khan’s children, who learnt of the incident though the media.

The statement also confirms that is the proposal is accepted, Khan will make a public announcement “in the proper manner.”

Until then they have requested privacy for all parties concerned.
