British boxer Amir Khan has been unable to duck out of this one. The star has been forced to hit out at his wife and his parents via Twitter urging them to end their "childish" feud.
The fight erupted after wife Faryal Makhdoom, 25, accused her in-laws Falak and Shah Rukh of slapping her, hurling a remote at her and cutting her out of family photos. Falak and Shah hit back saying Faryal's clothes do not fit with their Islamic dress code.
Things have become so bad that Amir has declared they will, "lose a son and a husband" if they do not stop fighting. He wrote on Twitter: "Whatever misunderstanding has happened, they should keep it private.
"This is getting to the point where they will lose a son & a husband. I've had enough."

Faryal, a catwalk model, married Amir (30) in 2013 and they are parents to two-year-old daughter Lamaisah. "One day I said, 'Enough of this s***, I'm going to speak up. I've had it for three years and that's enough,' " Faryal was quoted as saying by The Sun.
Amir's dad said: "Faryal was adopting a dress code which in the Islamic faith was not acceptable. We kept asking Amir to tell her not to adopt such a dress code. And even if she had to wear such dresses, please don't post it on social media." The gloves are off, and Amir is playing reluctant referee to a public bout.
