Imran Khan's alleged affair with Lekha Washington led to his split with wife Avantika? Here's what we know
Imran Khan and Avantika Malik have been living separately for a while now. Both of them had earlier tied the knot in 2011.
Imran Khan and his wife Avantika Malik were once considered the most beloved couple of the Bollywood film industry. However, the reports revolving around their separation left everyone in deep shock. It has been almost a year since the husband-wife duo has been living separately. However, they have maintained silence over the matter. But the cryptic posts shared by Avantika on social media speak the otherwise. Certain reports also stated that the strain in their marriage happened due to Imran’s failed career.
Now, the latest reports suggest that trouble mounted in Imran and Avantika’s marriage due to a third person – Lekha Washington. According to a report by Bollywood Hungama, the actor and Lekha have been seeing each other for some time. The same report states that the latter’s husband Pablo Chatterji is good friends with Imran Khan. If we go by this source, Imran has also begun introducing Lekha to his circle after his estranged wife moved out of the house.
This has led to a strain in Lekha’s marriage as well. According to Bollywood Hungama’s report, both the families are shattered post the same. Imran Khan is also said to have bought or rented a place near his house to meet Lekha. In the words of a neighbour, she can be seen going in and out of the building during the wee hours. This particular building is reportedly near his own residence in Pali Hill. Imran Khan is reportedly waiting for the divorce to announce his new relationship.
