Chad da Don has moved on from ex-girlfriend Kelly Khumalo with model Carlla Poggenpoel.
On Wednesday, Chad shared a photo of his new love interest on Instagram, writing: "Ride or die. No matter what."
The pair have also been sharing loved-up photos and videos on their Instagram Stories.
After dating last year and then breaking up over the festive season, Chad and Kelly came out strong and revealed that they were together for the long haul. In fact, Chad's mother was their biggest supporter, claiming that she loved Kelly and her children and that the two were very serious.
We saw her wearing a wedding ring; we saw him proposing on Top Billing, we saw her call him her "husband", we saw him hint that they should make a little "KK" — these two were so in love that we were ready to plan the wedding for them. And then in August the mood changed as when they started dropping hints that things weren't okay.
They've kept the topic under wraps since (to be fair, we've been distracted by Kelly Khumalo's Lebo Mathosa Drama) but on Tuesday we got a very clear indication that they have gone their separate ways when Chad posted a picture with his new girlfriend.
It is unclear when the couple started dating, but on 14 October Chad commented on one of Carlla's Instagram photos: "Was wondering if I could get your number darling? Or do you got a man?"
To which she responded: "I do have a man, kinda looks like you actually."
Speaking to Channel24, Chad's management team confirmed the romance, saying: Carlla is a lovely and friendly girl. She studies art and supports Chad in all his endeavours. His current relationship does not affect his relationship with Kelly, nor does it affect her relationship with him."
Last week Kelly tweeted: "Just saw someone I used to know and heart….. what do I do?"
The tweet led many to believe that she ran into her ex-boyfriend, Chad.
Earlier this year the pair reportedly got engaged, after getting matching tattoos on their ring fingers, but six months into the relationship called it quits.
If you're scratching your head at this point, you are not alone. Social media tweeps had a number of questions about this particular romance and others flat out wanted him to go back to Kelly Khumalo. Some of the comments read:
"As the community of Instagram, we do not approve 🤣🤣🤣. Hao, go back and apologize even if she was wrong🤣🤣🤣"
"are we missing something ? 😂😢 I'm lost guys😂😂"
"Baby girl soon they going to throw u away like Kelly. Dont relax too much just sit with one bum"
Chad hasn't replied to this but we are patiently waiting to see how this is going to pan out and if Kelly Khumalo is going to have anything to say.
Kelly Khumalo has been unlucky in the love department – and now, she’s asking her followers for advice on how to handle awkward situations with an ex.
Taking to her Twitter page last week, Kelly shared that she just came across "someone she used to know" and asked for advice on what she should do.
"Just saw someone I used to know and heart….. what do I do?," Kelly tweeted with a crying emoji.
Media personality Minnie Dlamini-Jones came through and gave her some relationship advice.
"Say hi with a smile and keep it moving. Life is too short to hold grudges but also you can't make the same mistake twice… Dr Phil where you at," Minnie tweeted to the singer.
The duo had an on-and-off relationship which kept people wondering if it was real or just for publicity.
"We’re just different people with different beliefs. My heart feels sore but there is no pain God cannot cure. Kelly and I had a good run. We were blessed with a great time but now it’s over," Chad confirmed the split in a DRUM interview earlier this year.
However, months later they were back in each other’s arms and got baptised together after announcing their engagement. In less than three months from that, Kelly removed all of Chad’s pictures on her Instagram hinting at a split.
