Amir Khan has opened up about his split from Faryal Makhmood in a Snapchat video. The boxing champion spoke to his fans about the situation, and explained why he had been snapped with an Instagram star, Gulbahor Becknazar, while out partying the evening before. Following a public argument on Twitter with his ex-wife on Friday, Amir said: "Hi everyone. I just want to apologise for my behaviour yesterday. I know it's something you guys don't wanna see but it's what my ex-wife in a way drove me to do basically. Faryal has drove me, her mother have drove me to do this."

He continued: "They've taken my daughter away from me, she's in New York. They've taken her away from me. Faryal's threatening for me to never see my daughter again. I don't want to live like this. I only went out yesterday because I was so stressed with all the drama that's gone on and I just wanted to let myself go. I don't drink alcohol or anything but I just went out with a group of friends to enjoy my night. Look guys please don't use it against me, I did nothing wrong yesterday, I was just so frustrated with everything that's gone on. I just do apologise and I'm sorry for upsetting you all."
