As Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf took a lead in the national elections and Imran Khan looks set to be the nation’s next prime minister, congratulations have been pouring in from across the world, including ex-wife Jemima Goldsmith.

Goldsmith, who was married to Khan between 1995 and 2004, tweeted this morning as it became clear that the PTI chief was in the lead:

She also tweeted about an experience during the first election Khan contested in 1997 in which she said, “I remember IK’s 1st election in 1997- untested, idealistic & politically naive. I waited up for the call in LHR with 3 mo old Sulaiman, who I had lugged around the country. Eventually he called. “It’s a clean sweep” & after my gasp, “… the other way.” He roared with laughter” She subsequently deleted the tweet without stating why.

Goldsmith and Khan have maintained cordial relations despite their divorce. The couple have two sons. Khan has been married twice after divorcing Goldmith.

Goldsmith had recently spoken out in support of Khan, when revelations in a book by his second wife, Reham Khan, threatened to derail his political campaign.

“I will be suing for defamation and breach of privacy on behalf of my (then) 16-year-old son and in relation to the moronic, re-hashed Zionist conspiracy theories,” she was quoted as saying by PTI.
