Pakistan Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar, who has currently hogged the limelight over her alleged illicit affair with Bilawal Bhutto, was being ditched in love, reported Bangladeshi tabloid, Weekly Blitz. [UPDATE: In love with Bilawal, Hina Rabbani Khar tried to commit suicide]
The tabloid had reported that the Foreign Minister had got to know about her millionaire husband Feroz Gulzar's extra-marital affair with his business colleague in Pakistan. Gulzar is a well-known business man in Punjab province in Pakistan.
The seeds of distrust between Hina and her husband were sown followed by the incident and Hina gradually fell in love with 24-year-old Bilawal who is 11 year younger than her, reported Weekly Blitz.
Bilawal, young Chairman of ruling Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), has made plans to settle down in Switzerland as Hina is reported to have put an end to her marriage with Gulzar with whom she has two daughters.
However, Pakistan president Asif Ali Zardari was upset with his son Bilawal because of his romantic involvement with Hina. The Bangladeshi tabloid also informed that Zardari had found both Hina and Bilawal in a compromising position in the presidential residence. The president allegedly had threatened Hina to terminate her from the post of Foreign Minister.
The tabloid reports ignited more speculations and rumours, however, both Hina and her husband rubbished the reports terming the news as "reprehensible" and "trash". Gulzar also accused political classes in Islamabad of hatching such conspiracy against Hina and their family to malign their image.
Meanwhile, a senior PPP official claimed that it was a conspiracy by Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) aiming to damage Hina's reputation as ISI blames her for facilitating a UN investigation into thousands of missing people detained by the security forces.
"They are not happy with her. The UN mission received a cold reception but Hina was called in by the president to meet him and the army chief. She crossed some red line," the PPP official was quoted as saying.
