Just like their international celebrities, some South African celebrities have had relationships in the past that resulted in marriage, while others chose to part ways. In some cases, these celebrity couples had children together before their separation. Unfortunately, some of these breakups played out in the public eye, leading to the exposure of personal information and the identity of their offspring.
Let's take a closer look at five celebrity couples who share children but are no longer together.
Zoe Mthiyane and Robert Marawa
Actress and theater performer Zoe Mthiyane and radio and television sports presenter Robert Marawa were once a couple. During their relationship, they welcomed a baby boy. However, they later became involved in a maintenance battle, with reports alleging that Zoe was demanding a monthly maintenance fee of R29,000.
Gogo Maweni and SK Khoza
Gogo Maweni, a celebrity sangoma and reality TV star whose real name is Makgotso Lee-Anne Makopo, shares a son with actor SK Khoza. While SK Khoza has remained silent on matters concerning his child, Gogo Maweni has spoken about his absence. Following their separation, Gogo Maweni got married, while SK Khoza was engaged and later had a public fallout with his fiancé, who is based in the UK.
Dineo Ranaka and Blacklez
Businesswoman, reality TV star, and podcaster Dineo Ranaka and rapper Blacklez (real name Lesego Moloia) have a daughter named Kopano. Their relationship, which was documented on Dineo's Diary, showcased both the highs and lows, inviting viewer opinions and taking sides on some of their disagreements.
Rosette Ncwana and Andile Ncube
Model and reality TV star Rosette Ncwana and media personality and radio presenter Andile Ncube share a baby girl named Gabriela. Despite their breakup many years ago, they are considered by some as an exemplary model of co-parenting. Andile remains actively involved in their child's life and views Rosette's second child as a beautiful sight to see.
Thandiswa Mazwai and Stoan Seate
Thandiswa Mazwai and Stoan Seate, both musicians who were once members of the Bongo Maffin band, have a daughter named Malaika. Now almost 24 years old, Malaika recently graduated from AFDA with a Bachelor of Arts in Motion Picture Medium. Thandiswa and Stoan separated many years ago and have since married other individuals.
While these celebrity couples may no longer be together, their shared children remain a significant part of their lives, and some have managed to navigate the complexities of co-parenting successfully.
