After 'dog issues' and 'sms divorce', cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan's former wife Reham has blamed the couple’s separation on Satan and black magic

Lahore: While there has been speculation about the possible reason behind the sudden separation of Pakistan’s most-appreciated couple, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and journalist Reham Khan, the latter has stated that black magic is primarily used to cause breakup between husband and wife.

Reham Khan has said in a tweet following her divorce that Quran states that Satan taught black magic to separate couples.
“The Quran states that the fundamental reason why Iblees (Satan) taught people black magic was in order to cause separation between husband and wife,” Reham’s tweet further said.

There has been speculation that Reham’s strong will to join politics caused the dent in her ties with the cricketer-turned-politician, who thought media was more attentive towards his wife.

Dog days
Earlier, reports surfaced that a row over dogs led to the couple’s divorce. It was reported that Reham was unhappy that Imran’s dogs entered her bedroom as well, while close relatives of her husband were also made to feel unwelcome at their Bani Gala residence. On the other hand Reham’s family was either residing with her or visiting her very often. However, sources close to them have rejected the claim and said it was in fact Reham who used to take care of all the five dogs owned by the couple.
PTI spokesperson Naeemul Haq had confirmed that the couple divorced with mutual consent after ten months of marriage.

'Texting' away

Imran Khan divorced Reham through a text message followed by a brief email. She is said to have received the text message communicating divorce when she stepped off the plane at Birmingham airport. The former BBC journalist on Saturday said she has signed her divorce papers, thereby, officially ending her marriage with the PTI chairman.
