South African celebrity couples try and hide their relationship woes under wraps, however, the truth always comes out & the issues start to surface, and private affairs are suddenly not private anymore. For most celebrities, all it takes is just a rumour to shatter their relationships whether the rumours are true or not.
There's a reason why people prefer to keep their relationships private… Things tend to get even more complicated than they need to be when there are more people involved than necessary.
Just ask any celebrity who has had their relationship drama play out on social media or splashed across the headlines. Things can get even worse when allegations of cheating are thrown into the mix, just ask these celebs.
Here are some of the cheating scandals that shook the Mzansi entertainment space.
The actress was accused of cheating on her soccer player boyfriend with another soccer player.
Gigi Lamayne opened up about her cheating ex-boyfriend. In a string of tweets the talented rapper revealed that her ex cheated on her 3 times.
Fikile Mbalula's alleged ex mistress accused Uyanda Mbuli of trying to steal her man, according to reports, Uyanda went as far as asking the man for money to maintain her lavish lifestyle.
The actress was in the papers for allegedly stealing Palesa Madisakwane's ex boyfriend.
It was recently reported that Mhlongo's fiance, Mohale Motaung, had allegedly two-timed him with a teen identified only as Vuyo Pan. Vuyo has been going on a publicity tour of sorts, being interviewed about the situation while Mhlongo and Motaung have indirectly laughed the allegations off.
In an interview with Drum, the actor admitted to "messing around on the side" in his previous marriage but states that he is a new man now and is happily taken by his new girlfriend.
This is perhaps one of the biggest cheating scandals of 2018 but it is yet to be proven so it remains just a rumour. Sources close to both parties went on record to confirm that Maponyane had been cheating on actress, Nomzamo Mbatha with a Capetonian blogger and numerous other women.
Both parties refuted the claims but they're no longer spending as much time together as they used to…
Following reports about her going into hiding after she had been violently thrown out of her new marital home, Mshoza's second husband, Thuthukani Mvula, told the media that his marriage had taken a turn for the worst due to the fact that his wife had been cheating on him.
She countered the allegations with allegations of her own, alleging that he had even plotted to have her killed.
After the pair shocked the nation with news of their divorce, rumours started swirling that both parties had been cheating. Nkayi was even allegedly linked to a model she had featured in one of her music videos but she vehemently denied those allegations.
Much like Thomas and Unathi, there are also unconfirmed rumors that Zwai's cheating was to blame for the break down in his marriage to Melanie Son.
Junior De Rocka
The DJ reportedly cheated on the actress and presenter while she was still pregnant with his child after he was repeatedly spotted out and about with a young Durban socialite by the name of Lihle B. He was also later spotted in the background of her Instagram stories.
The rapper was caught up in a cheating scandal, not once, but twice. The first happened when he revealed that actress, Amanda Du Pont had cheated on him and the second was when he owned up to cheating on Boity on a few songs in his third studio album.
Bonang Matheba and Kiernan 'AKA' Forbes
Theirs was arguably the messiest break up of 2017/18. Allegations of cheating first sprung up when video vixen, Nicole Nyaba was photographed near AKA's car at the club. AKA and Bonang chose not to address those allegations but AKA went on to spend crazy amounts of time with Nyaba following his break up with Bonang.
He also went on to allege, both in a series of tweets and a song, that Bonang had cheated on him during their relationship and that is why they broke up. As usual, Bonang has never addressed these allegations.
