Celebrity relationships are often notoriously rocky — the stories of long-lasting love are few and far between. And with the following celebrities, we’ve learned that some relationships only work on TV. While some have even inspired a lot of us to stay single.
Let’s take a look at the celebrity relationships that were sadly cut short though we knew they’re went going anywhere.
D’Banj and Bonang
Nigerian singer D’Banj and Bonang’s relationship was rumoured for a long time before the couple confirmed their “love” on the red carpet of the MTV MAMAs. Less than six weeks later, D’Banj was professing his love for another woman.
Zinhle & AKA
These two have a very funny love story that’s if one can even call it a love story. It looks like DJ Zinhle was in love alone here as they cheated on her the first time and didn’t learn her lesson ran back to AKA who then cheated on her again this time with the love of his life. She however kept running to him as she had said that age ain’t by her side and she desperately needs a man to settle down with. Should we also mention how AKA always looked like a sad toddler around her?
Cassper and Amanda Du Pont
Perfect example of perfect on-screen love. It all looked like a publicity stunt but Cassper and Amanda’s short-lived romance came to an end within six months. According to the rapper, it’s because Amanda cheated.
Kenny Kunene and Sophie Ndaba
This relationship had us wondering, what the hell was she thinking! Kenny Kunene wrote about his secret affair with Sophie Ndaba and threatened to leak sordid details about their romance. Sophie admitted that the two had dated but added that it did not last very long. Kenny went on to publicly say she was the biggest mistake of his life.
Sarah Langa and Jehan Mackay
The two married in December 2016 and apparently had a fallout at the beginning of 2019. They fell through after numerous marriage counselling sessions, and Mackay moved out of their home in Spring of 2019.
Kelly Khumalo and Bhaka the Sangoma
Kelly Khumalo and Bhaka the Sangoma fizzled out almost as quickly as they started, with rumours that she stabbed the traditional healer in the eye with a nail.
Lulo Café & Omuhle Gela
Lulo Cafe and Omuhle Gela had everything it took to be one of Mzansi’s hottest couples until, according to the DJ, Omuhle cheated on him and things fell apart within months. The actress swore after their relationship that she was done dating fellow celebrities.
Itu Khune and Sbahle Mpisane
Khune just can’t seem to hold down a long-term relationship, can he? His high-profile relationship with Sbahle Mpisane lasted less than a year before crumbling before our very eyes. And his marriage is currently shaking.
Khaya Mthethwa and Nthandoyenkosi Kunene
Ya neh, this pair might have married just to prove a point though no one knows what the point was. But their relationship was a happy one only on social media. They got married as quickly as they got divorced by announcing it on social media, with Kunene posting a since-deleted heartfelt message on her Instagram which read: “In the last few days my husband and I have had in-depth discussions about our marriage and our young family challenges. On Sunday we met my in-laws and informed them of our mutual decision for us to file for divorce. I also informed my mother and the rest of my Kunene family who were disappointed with the divorce decision but appreciated the fact that I represented them well at the Mthethwa’s in the way they raised and expected from me.”
Thando Thabethe and Lunga Shabalala
This was one of the shortest relationships ever in Mzansi. One minute they were on baecation the next Thando was already in the arms of another man, leaving Lunga sobbing for days.
Pearl Modiadie and Nathaniel Oppenheimer
You know how some people like forcing things like those ladies who don’t have long hair but will just be wanting a bunny with all their hearts. You’ll find them using hairpins and styling gel just so they get the bunny or ponytail. That describes exactly what Pearl did in this relationship she forced things until giving birth was the only option. She gave Nathaniel a cute baby boy but he still dumped her just three months after she gave birth.
Somizi And Mohale
Eish, we hate to say this but Somizi was warned right from the start of their relationship that Mohale was just playing games with him but he didn’t wanna hear it. And now here we are, uncle bae is spending his nights alone while Mohale is galavanting and enjoying the best life has to offer in his youthful days. Imagine breaking up after the wedding Somizi gave us… iyoh!
Lerato Kganyago and Thami Ndlala
These two are still in some sort of ship, we ain’t sure what sort of a ship it is but from far one can see that it’s all fake and we just waiting for the ship to crash.
