Pakistan's cricket legend turned politician Imran Khan marries faith healer, his third marriage

ISLAMABAD — Pakistan's cricket legend turned politician Imran Khan has tied the knot for the third time by marrying a faith healer, his party announced on Monday.

The nuptials ended rumors that had been swirling for months about Khan considering a third marriage, after having been divorced twice.

Fawad Hussain, the spokesman for Khan's Pakistan Taherik-e-Insaf party said the 66-year-old cricket star married Bushra Maneka, a divorcee his friends say he sought out in the past for spiritual healing.

Khan's party released photographs of him smiling, sitting with his new wife and her relatives.

Rumors about Khan's third marriage started circulating in January. Khan was previously married to socialite Jemima Goldsmith and journalist Reham Khan.

Maneka comes from a deeply conservative and politically influential family from eastern Punjab province

Khan acquired a reputation as a playboy and ladies' man during his international cricket career.

Defeated in the 2013 elections, Khan has spoken of his aspirations of becoming Pakistan's next prime minister following parliamentary elections, due in July this year.

He has also been a vocal critic of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. Pakistan's Supreme Court disqualified Sharif last year from office over concealing financial assets.
