Imran's mission is all fake, he thinks he's God: Reham Khan.

Reham Khan, the former wife of Imran Khan, stated in an interview that the PTI chiefs mission was all fake for which she had married him, adding that the cricketer-turned-politician thinks hes God, reported The Times. On the eve of elections that Imran Khan is widely expected to win, one of his ex-wives has claimed that the former Pakistan cricket captain is a hypocrite who will do anything to get power and would be a disaster for the country.

Reham Khan, 45, was scathing and claimed thatthe 65-year-old cricketer turned politicianwas so spoilt that he could not use a cashpoint or a microwave. Hes the only celebrity we have in Pakistan and expects everyone to do everything, she said.

I told him, Youre like Rapunzel in the tower mdash you have no connection to real life. She added: Hes so narcissistic and single-minded about his goal [of becoming prime minister] that he forgets theappropriate emotional response to things.

Reham has written an explosive book in which she writes: He thinks hes God. I married him because I believed in him and his mission, but its all fake.

Those close to Imran have denounced Rehams self-published book as the ravings of an embittered ex. His spokesman said: We will deal with all irrelevant and non-issues after the elections.

Reham, a British-Pakistani journalist and single mother of three, met Imran after she moved to Pakistan five years ago and interviewed him for a television news channel. After a second interview he invited her to dinner at his house, she said, telling her he had something important to discuss.

I went because of the journalist in me, she said. When he proposed marriage, I thought he was out of his mind.

Then I realised he was completely serious. Imran was persistent.

I wasnt so much flattered as he pestered me to death. I guess we all want a little romance in our life.

Their marriage lasted less than a year. She said she had returned to the UK for a conference when Imran sent a factotum to meet her at a restaurant in Harrow, northwest London, and handed over a bag of jewellery as a payoff.
