– It is now official; DJ Black Coffee, real name (Nkosinathi Innocent Maphumulo) has finally confirmed the reports that his wife, Enhle Mbali has filed court papers for divorce.
In a statement released on Twitter, captioned "a statement," Black Coffee said: "After much deliberation since the story of our relationship broke in public, I wish to state that we have been trying to sort our problems amicably and in private for almost a year now and it has been the most heart breaking and challenging period. [sic]"
He added that the story is double faced, summing up that he will not further discuss his private life in the public, neither would he speak ill of ‘his' partner or ‘his' in-laws.
"As Mbali has stated, our priority are to protect our children at this point. [sic]," he said.
According to The Juice, Black Coffee went on to ask for space and privacy as the matter had been handed over to the court. This court action therefore renders any further discussing of the matter prejudicial.
This comes after the Broken Vows actress publicly addressed rumours on Sunday after Sunday Sun published intimate details about the couple's divorce proceedings. Enhle indirectly confirmed the newspaper's findings, saying: "The situation that is happening right now, in my life, is indeed happening. [sic]"
According to the local tabloid newspaper, Enhle filed for a protection order at the Randburg magistrate courts in October against Black Coffee's sister Nomalanga Maphumulo.
The couple tied the knot during a traditional wedding ceremony eight years ago, and celebrated their union with a white wedding in 2018.
City Press broke the news in July when it reported that the two were allegedly heading for divorce court, citing the DJs rumoured infidelities and meddling family members as the reason for Enhle serving her husband with divorce papers.
