THEY were one of Mzansi’s IT couples. And even went as far as tattooing each other’s initials on their fingers as a symbol of their commitment to each other… But now, Kelly Khumalo and her fiance, Chad da Don, are history!
These were the words of insiders, who were adamant that the flame of their romance shed a brief but lovely light. Kelly’s rumoured break-up with the rapper was also evident on their social media accounts. They removed each other’s pictures across all platforms, including Instagram.
Said an informant: “Chad’s nursing a broken heart. That man loves Kelly so much, he was willing to sacrifice anything to be with her. But clearly, things didn’t go his way. He’s heartbroken.”
Another source said Kelly’s ancestral calling may have played a role in the couple’s break-up. Insisted the mole: “Remember, in October Kelly announced she was on a journey to become a sangoma. Also, Kelly thought she’d found true love in Chad until they stopped talking and bragging about each other.”
Said the third source: “I normally don’t talk to the media about her. She’s a private person but you’re right, seriously, it’s over. But don’t say you got the news from me.”
Chad’s Instagram followers also expressed their curiosity about the lovers’ possible split. Posted Cadewaphilly: Now we can see gore there’s something really going on. You look miserable without her but what do I know… Good luck.
Posted Viletkhanyetsi: I can’t see even one picture of Kelly Khumalo in your page, why?
Posted Misskayn06: Praying for you and @kellykhumalo to work things out.
Both Chad and Kelly were not available for comment. Chad’s mum Norma, who is also his manager, said she will not confirm if her son is still in a romantic relationship with Kelly.
“Speaking as his manager, I can tell you that Chad will always love Kelly. Kelly is always close to his heart, he cares for her. Whatever they’re going through, I hope they’ll sort it out. People must stop trying to find anything negative about others. Kelly is very busy with her projects, Chad as well. They’re both busy, as we speak, Chad is shooting a video and Kelly is part of the project,” said Norma who refused to give us her surname.
She said she always tells Chad to keep his private life, private.
