Amir Khan accused of sexual harassment by BBC star after 'bombarding her with messages & calls' | The Sun

AMIR Khan has been accused of sexual harassment by a BBC presenter.

Suzi Mann – who works for the BBC Asian Network – says Khan, 36, bombarded her with messages and calls after meeting at a concert.

She says she did not feel "comfortable" and chose not to "entertain" the advances before allegedly receiving a message from Khan's wife Faryal Makhdoom threatening to "destroy" her.

In an explosive post on Instagram earlier this week, Ms Mann, a single mum, told her 19,000 followers: "I first met Amir Khan in 2016 whilst I was hosting Arijit Singh in Manchester!

"A couple of days after the concert, I started receiving WhatsApp messages from an unknown number, with someone claiming to be Amir Khan!

"I immediately had to ask, actor or boxer? Unfortunately it was the latter!

"On a more serious note, these messages continued and then I started to receive calls and voicemails from Amir Khan himself.

"Now I've been in this industry too long to not know when someone is flirting and making sexual advances.

Ms Mann, who presents the Official Asian Music Chart Show, claims it was then that Khan's wife launched a tirade of "vile, abusive and uncalled for" attacks.

The presenter claimed: "It was apparent she had gotten hold of his phone and seen all the messages he had been sending me.

"She then proceeded to message me pretending to be him, which was immediately obvious because she appeared to have (at the time), a few more brain cells than him."

Ms Mann went on to claim women have "fallen for his lies" – either "reciprocated his advances or… actively pursued relationships".

And she accused the pair of going "out of their way" to "abuse, blackmail, insult and threaten women".

The presenter said she chose to call Khan and his wife out because "enough is enough".

The Sun has approached Amir Khan's and his wife Faryal Makhdoom's representatives for comment.

It comes as we revealed Khan begged a model to send him revealing pictures and tried to meet up with her in the run-up to his 10th wedding anniversary.

He told influencer Sumaira, 25, "U look good on g string" and suggested she had a "boob job".

Khan and wife Faryal, 31, have reportedly split following the sexting scandal – spending time between homes in Britain and Dubai.
