Faiza Ahmed has fled her home in Stockport, Greater Manchester, and taken her three children to her brother’s house in Texas to recover from the collapse of her 16-year marriage.
The 37-year-old childminder and bilingual teaching assistant claims that Ms Booth – the half-sister of Cherie Blair – has betrayed her newly acquired Muslim faith.
She accuses her of openly flirting with Sohale in front of her, spending the family celebrations of Ramadan and Eid with him, and marrying him in secret.
Speaking from the house in a gated community where she has taken refuge, Mrs Ahmed said:
‘Lauren destroyed my home. You can’t just put on a hijab and say you are a good Muslim woman – it’s about having boundaries with men, and love and respect for women.
