Imran Khan scores a hat-trick of marriages by tying the knot for the third time
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party chief and former Pakistan cricketer Imran Khan got married to his spiritual guide Bushra Maneka, confirmed his party, ending weeks of speculation about the union between the two.

This is the third marriage for the playboy cricketer and Pakistan's World Cup winning skipper. Imran Khan had married Jemima Goldsmith, daughter of a British billionaire in 1995 but the marriage ended after nine years in 2004. Imran has two sons from his first marriage. After that, he married TV anchor Rehman Khan in 2015 which too culminated into a divorce barely after 10 months.

His third marriage to Bushra Bibi also known as Pinki Pir was quite a simple affair which took place in Lahore on Sunday, according to PTI spokesman Fawad Chaudhury. He tweeted about the marriage. It has been confirmed that the marriage took place at Maneka's brother's residence in Lahore. Central Executive Committee member Mufti Muhammed Saeed performed the 'nikah'.

There have been reports of the two getting married since January. Last month Imran Khan had made headlines after asking his supports in a tweet to pray for his personal happiness. The tweet read: "Personal happiness which, except for a few years, I have been deprived of".

Chaudhury said, "Marriage is the combination of two hearts and two souls which join each on this special day of wedding. I wish a very happy and blessed married life to Imran Khan."

"The valima ceremony will also be held in a simple manner in a few days," he added.

Some pictures released by PTI's media, show Imran wearing a shalwar kameez and black jacket while the bride is all dressed in a red suit with a woolen shawl.

Reports also claim that Imran Khan's sisters were not present in the ceremony triggering many rumours of his not confiding to them about his third marriage. This flamboyant cricketer-turned-politician has over the years shed his playboy image and built a better political image with a huge fan following in the northern parts of Pakistan.

Maneka is in her late 40's and has five children from her first marriage. He had been seeking spiritual guidance from her since a year ago.
