Life of a celebrity in this country is never really easy in India, especially for the cricketers, who gain more attention than anyone else. Cricket, as we all know, is the heartbreak of this country and its players are always in the news for a plethora of reasons, good or bad.
Fortunately or unfortunately, everything a cricketer does in his personal or professional life gets scrutinized deeply. This sometimes makes their life difficult, but being the flag-bearer of such a happening sport in the country, these are the few things they have to deal with.
A person next door marrying twice or thrice might not be a big deal in this country, but a cricketer ringing the wedding bells for the second time is quite a hot topic. Here are five famous personalities from the cricketing fraternity who managed to hog a great deal of limelight because of multiple marriages.
1. Imran Khan
Arguably one of the greatest cricketers the game has seen, Imran Khan was an inspirational leader who took Pakistan to their first and only World Cup glory in 1992. The deadly all-rounder incidentally married thrice and his first two wives were precisely 21 years younger than him.
He first married Jemima Goldsmith and this relationship stood strong for 9 years. After the couple parted ways, he married Libyan journalist Reham Khan and the couple got divorced just 9 months later. He recently tied the knot for the third time with Bushra Manek but reports suggest that she has returned to her maternal home accusing Imran Khan’s family of domestic violence.
