The boxer says he's innocent

Boxer Amir Khan insists he’s not the reason Katie Price and Alex Reid have broken up.

Katie released an official statement to mark the end of her 11-month marriage last night, and her boxer friend – who she met while filming TV show Scream If You Know The Answer! – is incredulous that people think he played a part in the split.

I’m an Innocent bolton lad lol,’ Amir, 24, Tweets.

I got nothing to do with it. We jus friends.

We
don’t msg each ova nonstop and I didn’t even see her in vegas.

‘We just
friends I can’t believe how everythings twisted!

I like alex he’s a nice
guy. And they made a great couple
.’ 

After first meeting in September 2009, Katie – aka glamour girl Jordan – has hooked up with Amir twice – in August at a film
premiere in London and then at his fight in Las Vegas
last month.

Although it’s never gone beyond flirting and her reps have also denied
Amir’s
the cause of her marriage troubles, it’s riled Alex.

While Alex settles back in with his mum and dad in Hampshire, it seems Katie, 32,
is wasting no time making plans to move to LA and bag a new man
to boost her profile Stateside.

She’d love to date an American
football player because that would do wonders for her status over
there,’ says our insider. She’s fed up with living in England.

‘There
are too many bad memories. It’s a constant reminder of how she’s messed
up her life.’
