‘I never imagined getting divorced’: Minnie Dlamini finally opens up on her failed marriage

South African media personality, Minnie Dlamini opens up about her divorce from Quinton Jones during a recent interview with Relebogile Mabotja, on 702.

The TV personality reacted to rumors about how her alleged infidelity ended the marriage.

“When people over-sensationalize, over-dramatize, create lies about you, it’s one of the most painful things because I can’t shut from the rooftops to everyone and explain my truth. At the end of the day, I also feel as though I don’t need to. As long as my close family and friends know what the truth is and what is going on, those are the relationships and those are the people that I feel I owe an explanation to. Everyone else will just figure it out when they figure it out,” she said.

Minnie said her marriage ended long before she announced it on social media.

“People need to understand that when a marriage ends, it doesn’t end at the announcement or the day before the announcement, it ends long before that.”

“By the time I announced, I had gone through a lot of the processes already. At the time of the announcement, it felt like a really big relief and a weight off my shoulders,” she added.

The producer said she never foresaw being a divorcee as she always desired to raise her kids the same way she was raised.

“I never imagined getting divorced. I always thought that I would raise my kids how I was raised. I just felt like for me, timing was off, I felt like I didn’t know myself. Furthermore, I went on to further lose myself in my marriage.”

“I think the failure part is on my part from not being able to pick up what was right for me at a time before I went all the way… You know, in relationships you always know, when you look back, you’re like ‘that was a red flag, and that was a red flag… you’re a red flag!’ I’m not pushing the blame in any way, shape, or form but you’re either a red flag and you’re not acknowledging it or they have red flags and you’re not acknowledging it,” Minnie concluded.
