NEWLY-SIGNED Cape Town City striker Tokelo Rantie has allegedly substituted his Diski Divas ex-wife Gigi Pule.
Rantie and Gigi’s marriage ended early last year. Sources close to the situation say the former Bafana Bafana striker is now dating Gigi’s best friend Sibongile Khothe.
Sunday Sun reported late last year that Rantie and Gigi’s marriage was on the rocks after allegations that he had impregnated his ex-girlfriend, Noma Mchunu.
Sources say in an effort to save his marriage, Rantie tried to spoil Gigi by buying her a car, but it was too little too late.
The first source said: “He was trying to save his marriage by buying Gigi a BMW X6 to seek forgiveness for scoring an away goal, but it was late, the marriage was already over.”
Another source said: “Tokelo was not going to change his cheating ways, even if Gigi forgave him. It’s like he’s trying to spite Gigi by dating Sibongile, who is Gigi’s best friend.”
A third source says infidelity ruined their marriage: “While Tokelo was abroad he was often told about Gigi’s cheating ways, and in return he was always paying flights for Noma to Turkey, and she got pregnant.”
A fourth source said: “Sibongile’s relationship with Tokelo has been on since he and Gigi got married.”
Sibongile refused to comment and hung up the phone. Gigi also refused to comment. Rantie could not be reached for comment.
Cape Town City manager, Monier David, did not want to comment, saying this is a personal matter.
