LAHORE, Pakistan: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chariman Imran Khan’s ex-wife has accused the former cricketer of being a cocaine addict in her recently published biography.
Former BBC weather girl also shared pictures of two cocaine sets she says she recovered from Imran Khan’s pockets in her book. She wrote, ““His sexual adventures had started even earlier than his cricketing career, but the delving into drugs started later he claimed. Imran said that he first started on cocaine when Jemima took the kids away”. She also said, “PTI founding members also corroborate the timing of his coke addiction”.
“Imran said that he first started on cocaine when Jemima took the kids away.”
“I was suspicious and started keeping a tab on his disappearances. He would make at least three trips to the bathroom every night, and return more hyper than before. He would notice my sudden quietness, and the puzzled look, and would become even more doting. When questioned, he would either deny outright or be dismissive. He would typically go to the bathroom every hour, and eventually, I started noticing the tell-tale traces of powder on his nostrils, and the cotton swabs with Vaseline in the drawers”.
She went on to say that Imran Khan would ask her not to worry about it and told her that he needed a partner to do the drug.
Sharing what Khan told him about drugs, she wrote: “”You [Reham] have never done it. A line of coke [cocaine] is just like half a glass of wine”. This line was repeated often and was each time received with the same rolling of the eyes”.

She also shared pictures of cocaine recovered from the coat of the PTI chief. See picture:
As the PTI chief was reluctant to leave the drug addiction, Reham said, “I developed a habit of going in before the servants to wipe away all surfaces with antiseptic wipes so they would not see any trace of the powder. It was everywhere: the side of the bath tub, in the window sills, and, occasionally, on the glass coffee table. I don’t know what I was thinking because they must have seen much worse over the years. I guess I wanted to let them believe that he was a changed man”.
“The man who would be so quiet and dull all morning would become like an energised bunny, bounding across the room and dancing the night away,” she wrote, adding that she started research on symptoms of the drug users.
“I realised much later that it was because of jaw-clenching typical of cocaine users. In the first few weeks of marriage, I had cleaned out the drawers, very innocently thinking that my husband was using too many sedatives. There were all sorts of tranquillisers, mainly benzodiazepines like Xanax and Lexotanil. Bobby, his cousin, delivered the banned drug Rohypnol right in front of me (also known to me as the date-rape drug),” Reham added in the scandel-filled book.
