Meet Top South African Celebrities With Ugly Breakups Which Ended in Tears


It's true what they say: breaking up is hard. If you're in the spotlight as a celebrity couple, it's much more difficult to call it quits. Infidelity, drug addiction, custody battles, and other contentious issues become public knowledge, which exacerbates the situation's emotional toll and social embarrassment even more.

Ex-partners are frequently denigrated, and those who are still in a relationship often make unsubstantiated accusations against one another.

Black Coffee and Enhle Mbali

After months of rumours about the state of her marriage, Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa confirmed her divorce from Nkosinathi Maphumulo in an Instagram video she shared in November 2019.

In the 10 years since they'd been together, there'd been whispers that he'd fathered two children outside of marriage. It didn't take long for things to get heated between them. As part of the ongoing drama surrounding the couple's highly publicised divorce procedures, sources say that the actress has filed several maintenance claims against her soon-to-be ex-husband.

Cassper Nyovest and Boity

South African rapper Cassper Nyovest was kicked out of the group by Boitumelo Thus after she said he was immature and unattractive to her.

After their split, Nyovest decided to start teaching fitness classes as a side hustle.

Bonang Matheba & DJ Euphonik

Married couple Euphonik and Bonang sued each other after Euphonik allegedly beat Bonang up. That these two powerful forces will never get along as ex-spouses is obvious.

Minnie Dlamini & Itu Khune

However, after Khune reportedly had an affair with a woman who worked at the SABC and asked that Minnie be fired from her SoccerZone job for her indiscretion, the pair ended up splitting.

Pearl Thusi and Robert Marawa

An uproar ensued when the actress took to social media and shared a photo of herself wearing her gorgeous engagement ring that she claimed was a gift from the sports presenter.

His connection with Pearl was never broached while they were together. It wasn't until August of 2017 that he finally revealed to the world that he and her had broken up. Robert revealed to his followers on Twitter that they had dissolved their relationship a few months prior, but that they were still good friends.
