AMIR Khan and his wife were castigated for a prank on their child – telling him that Hollywood star Bradley Cooper is his father.
The 33-year-old boxer and 28-year-old Faryal Makhdoom filmed the tearful reaction of five-year-old Lamaisah when he learned that Amir was not his biological father.
The couple were called “cruel” for the Instagram clip, in which Faryal was seen showing the child a photo of actor Bradley on his phone.
Then she points to Amir and says, “He’s not your real daddy. He’s your real father. “
Former world welterweight champion Amir, 33, adds, “Do you want to talk to your father? “
They then made a fake phone call with an assistant called Carl in their gym.
Faryal adds a caption to the clip, saying, “Carl on the phone pretending to be the father.” “
He said to the child, “I missed you. Is your mom okay? Have you been a good girl? “
Then she accidentally logs into FaceTime and sees Carl’s face.
She burst into tears when Faryal said, “We are joking. “
Lamaisah yells, “I don’t like jokes. “
The clip included a laughing emoji saying “joke my daughter”.
