Jemima stop using surname Khan change name back to Goldsmith. Ten years after she and Pakistan cricket legend Imran Khan divorced, Jemima Khan has disclosed that, reluctantly, she will stop using his surname.
My ex-husband, Imran, recently announced that he intended to get remarried soon.
Which made me think it’s probably time to change my name back to Goldsmith,’ says the 40-year-old daughter of the late billionaire Sir James Goldsmith and his widow, Lady Annabel.
No Khan Why Jemima Is Changing Her Name?
Given that Imran, who is now a politician in Pakistan, does not even have a girlfriend, can this really be the reason?
For Imran to see the Khan name associated with louche ‘comedian’ Russell Brand, with whom Jemima cavorting.
Unlikely to have gone down well in Lahore.
Jemima, who has two sons with Imran, seems particularly sad about the switch.
‘I’ve been Khan for as long as I was Goldsmith and I last used my maiden name when I was a child (OK, 21),’ she writes in the New Statesman magazine.
Jemima stop using surname Khan change name back to Goldsmith.
I quite like that my name represents my “Juslim” identity (Jemima being Jewish, Khan Muslim-ish).’
Heiress Jemima converted to Islam before marrying Imran in a traditional Muslim ceremony in Paris at the age of 21.
They said their marriage collapsed because it was ‘difficult for Jemima to adapt to life in Pakistan’.
She went on to have a three-year relationship with foppish actor Hugh Grant.
I kept “Khan” originally as my children felt strongly about it, but now they grow up they don’t seem to care,’ she says.
Jemima started courting former heroin addict Brand last year.
However, they were reported to have split up last month after Brand was accused of assaulting former masseuse Szilvia Berki.
Who called to Jemima’s Oxfordshire mansion to give Brand a rub-down as a birthday present.
Police told Brand and Khan that there was no case to answer and a court ordered that Berki stop harassing the couple.
The fact that the socialite’s younger brother, Ben, announced his engagement in August to 27-year-old.
Former model Jemima Jones adds to her sense of reluctance about changing her name.
‘I don’t fancy being “the other”, “the big” or “the older” Jemima Goldsmith,’ she admits. C’est la vie.
