ISLAMABAD, Pakistan, Dec. 5 (UPI) -- Cricket legend Imran Khan's English wife has taken out an ad in Pakistani newspapers to quash rumors of their separation.

Similar to one placed by Cindy Crawford and Richard Gere in 1994, the ad reads, in Urdu and English: "Whilst it is true that I am currently studying for a masters degree at The School of Oriental and African Studies in London, it is certainly not true to say that Imran and I are having difficulties in our marriage. This is a temporary arrangement and, Inshallah (God willing), I will be moving back to Pakistan once my studies are finished and once the building of our farmhouse outside Islamabad is complete."

Jemima Khan, close friend of Princess Diana and daughter of late millionaire financier, Sir James Goldsmith, married the Pakistani cricketer in 1995, converting from the Jewish faith to Islam. The couple have two sons, 7 and 4. The marriage has been dogged by rumors of difficulties.
