LONDON: Boxer Amir Khan could stand to lose half of his estimated £25million fortune in his divorce battle with Faryal Makhdoom .
The couple split in a bitter public row on Twitter earlier this month, which appears to be getting only uglier with time.
According to a solicitor, Faryal could be set to get half of the wealth of the British-Pakistani boxer in divorce proceedings.
“The starting point will be a 50:50 division of all assets,” solicitor Harold Walker told the Daily Star.
“His lawyers might argue that his cash is tied up in family businesses and investments but that will make no difference apart from to draw the process out.
“He will be told to break-up any firms and sell any investments to make sure he can pay the money into court.”
Faryal announced a week ago she is expecting the estranged couple’s second baby in February.Amir could also potentially lose custody of his daughter Lamaisah as well as their upcoming baby – meaning he could also be hit with child support.
However, she is said to have told her friends she would raise the baby alone as the pair continue their bitter divorce battle. She also recently cropped the boxer out of images.
