Junaid Safdar, the son of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Maryam Nawaz, announced on Thursday that he and his spouse have separated, almost a year after their marriage.
In an Instagram story, Safdar stated, “News about my divorce is true.”
On August 22, the couple exchanged vows, with their wedding celebrations held in both Pakistan and London because PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif was living in self-exile in the British capital.
During their relationship, the couple avoided being in the spotlight.
“This is an entirely private matter and I request the media to respect our privacy,” the politician’s son said in the story.
“I hope with this decision we find our peace In Shaa Allah. I will speak no further on this matter.”
“I wish her well,” Junaid added.
Soon after the announcement, Junaid removed all his pictures with his former wife on Instagram.
