The divorce of Minnie Dlamini and Quinton Jones came as a shock to many people. The pair had been seen as one of South Africa’s most successful and glamorous couples.

While in conversation on 702 with Relebogile Mabotja on The Upside of Failure. In it, Minnie spoke about her failures and how she learned from them.

She addressed the allegations about her 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,” said Minnie.

“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. 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.”
