Syeda Tuba Anwar took to social media to announce her divorce from TV show host and PTI MNA Aamir Liaquat.

Anwar posted on Instagram on February 9 to share the news with her followers. "With a heavy heart I want to make people aware of a development in my life," she said. "My close family and friends are aware that after a separation of 14 months, it was evident that there was no hope for reconciliation in sight and I had to opt to take khula from court.

"I cannot express how difficult it has been but I trust Allah and His plans," she added. "I would appeal to everyone that my decision is respected during these testing times."

Liaquat, 49, married 28-year-old media executive Anwar in 2018. After the marriage was announced, his first wife, Syed Bushra Iqbal, took to social media to reveal the hurt that it caused her. She said Liaquat divorced her over the phone.

In 2021, Liaquat battled rumours of getting married a third time after actor and model Haniya Khan claimed to be his wife. The Aalim Online host denied the claim through an Instagram video, saying, "I only have one marriage, which is with Tuba."

In June the rumour mill was back at it once again, claiming the couple had divorced. Liaquat debunked the report at the time. He posted another Instagram video to show Anwar's Twitter account bio which read "Proud Wife of Aamir Liaquat." This, he said, was proof, that the two aren't divorced. He then kind of recycled the "pawri" meme. This is Tuba's account, this is me and everything is rubbish, he had said.
