Imran's marriage to TV journalist Reham was his second after his first marriage with English heiress Jemima Goldsmith for nine years ended in divorce in June, 2004. Imran and Jemima have two sons from their marriage.

Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran and Reham Khan have divorced with mutual consent, PTI spokesperson Naeemul Haq said.

"Yes, I can confirm the divorce. Everything has been settled between the two," he said.

"Imran and Rehman have requested that the media respect their privacy and avoid speculation," Haq said. He said that due to the sensitivity of the matter, the media should refrain from speculation and there would be no further comments on the issue.

Haq refused to give reasons for the divorce but according to Imran's close associates he was not happy with Reham meddling in political affairs.

Sources aware of the development said the main issues between the two were Reham's keenness to get involved in party matters and her disliking for Jemima who remains in touch with Imran because of their sons and takes keen interest in his political career and matters related to the Shaukat Khanum Cancer hospital.
