First it was Shoaib Akhtar, the fasted blower from Pakistan is getting married to some teenage girl.
He denied that news on his twitter, dubbed it a crap rumor and said there is no truth in that.
"I would like to confirm that I'm not getting married to 17 year old girl,there is absolutely no truth in the story being reported..(Contd.)
...If not me,atleast respect the girl! Totally False"
Breaking news was his wedding until FB started buzzing with another breaking news of "India has found the pic of SA's 20 year old bride."
Every paper and its FB page be it Pakistani or Indian started using that pic without any verification.
Actually India Today and Hindustan Times posted a pic of SA with Amy Billimoria who is in reality a designer, not his 20 yrs old bride everyone is dying to see.
Of course it was a low key event, pics are not out yet.
Reporters/ Photographers should start doing some legwork like sitting out side his house to get the glimpse of newly wed, instead of Googling before claiming we found the pic.
WTfish is this 20 years old bride?
Almost every paper's head line is "20 years old bride"like no man has ever married any women 18 years younger than him in this entire world? (Do the maths. if SA is really 38, and she is 20(confirmed) then there is 18 years age difference between this couple). Still she is an adult. Also that 20 year old bride has a name, use it. FYI, her sure name is Mushtaq, not Khan, she is Rubab Mushtaq, not Rubab Khan like papers are reporting.
