Amir Khan's estranged wife Faryal praises Conor McGregorAmir Khan's estranged wife has praised Conor McGregor for his devotion to his long-term partner in a sly dig at her own husband.Faryal Makhdoom Khan posted a tweet that included a quote from the mixed martial arts superstar explaining how he'd been with his girlfriend Dee Devlin for eight years when they used to live on unemployment benefits.Above the quote, Faryal wrote: 'Love this. I really respect men who respect their women despite how famous they get.'It comes weeks after an astonishing public spat between Faryal and Khan when the boxer announced his marriage split on Twitter and both accused the other of cheating. Khan also accused his American wife of having an affair with heavyweight rival Anthony Joshua. Khan hit out at his wife, writing: 'Left my family and friends for this Faryal. I'm not hurt but another fighter. I'm making it public. You getting the divorce #Golddigger .'But Faryal hit back minutes later, claiming her husband left his family because they had 'robbed' him and telling him to 'stop making false things up'.Branding him a '30-year-old baby', she went on to accuse him of sleeping with prostitutes and being a bad role model.Joshua laughed off Khan's claims, posting the music video from pop star Shaggy's It Wasn't Me online, and saying he had never met Faryal.Khan later apologised to Joshua and said there was 'no truth' to his claims. The couple, who married in 2013, claim Khan was sent screenshots of 'fake' messages purportedly sent between Joshua and Faryal which he initially believed to be real. Khan, who is worth £23million, apologised after receiving a letter from Joshua's legal team demanding an apology for the allegations. After Joshua wrote 'apology accepted', Khan tweeted him directly saying: 'Glad all is cleared up and all lies. I got angry like any man would. No truth to it. Good to know. All the best.' The very public spat came at the end of a turbulent few months for the couple, who married in a lavish New York ceremony in 2013 and have a three-year-old daughter, Lamaisah, together.Problems began last year when Khan's family said his wife, an American model, dressed improperly for a Muslim woman.She accused them of verbal and physical abuse, but in a TV interview Khan's parents called his wife an 'evil woman', while his sister claimed Faryal had prevented the family from seeing Lamaisah.The couple were then hit by further drama when a sex tape of Khan performing a sex act on a webcam while chatting with a model was leaked to a US porn site.
