While it is still unconfirmed whether Somhale is indeed ending their marriage, rumours of their divorce began this week when it was reported that Mohale Motaung served businessman, Somizi Mhlongo with divorce papers while vacationing in the Mother City. Close friends to the couple have alleged that the latter has been paying Motaung to pretend to be happy publicly.
Should Somhale untie the knot, Mohale and Somizi’s marriage stands to be one of the shortest marriages among Mzansi celebs history as they got married on the 30th of January and are rumoured to be splitting up soon. The two have been in the spotlight since they began dating with fans of the Idols judge warning him from the get-go on social media that they don’t believe Motaung loves him, but rather wants to be with him for fame and his money.
Fans began suspecting there’s trouble in paradise when they stopped posting images of each other since last year on their social media channels and Somgaga began hanging out with Vusi Nova more.
Last year Somizi Mhongo shocked Mzansi when he opened up about how Mohale’s phone addiction is affecting his relationship on live Instagram:
“It’s not the phone’s problem. It is the person who is using the phone. So, we are not blaming the phone, the phone doesn’t pick itself up. It’s not even about me feeling neglected. I find it also to be too self-serving. If you are not on Instagram, or Twitter, or Facebook, you are taking pictures, you are taking selfies. I feel like, yoh, sometimes I wish to be touched like that phone.”
Khaya Mthethwa and Nthandoyenkosi Kunene
Former Idols winner Khaya Mthethwa and former Miss SA Nthandoyenkosi Kunene got married in December 2017 and announced their split in December of 2019 after two years together.
The former love birds who have a son together, tied the knot at Kunene’s home after dating for three months and had a traditional wedding.
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.”

The actress who usually blue ticked rumours of her husband’s cheating rumours confirmed the rumours of his infidelity in an interview with DJ Zinhle:
“I went through two scandals: one there was a sex tape, one it was just ratchetness and I remember in my pain, in my tears, in my strength and in my stillness, there was one day when I thought ‘why do I care so much? Why do I want to listen to society say ‘he’s cheated on you twice, leave’ what is my heart saying? What is my spirit saying? And my spirit said ‘you love him, sit your a** down and do what is best for you and your family’.”
