Jones and Dlamini made headlines recently when social media users speculated, they are back together.

Speaking to Zimoja, Dlamini rubbished rumours she’s back together with the father of her son.

“I am not back with that guy, and I don’t even know who started this rumour. That chapter is closed, and it will never be opened,” she says.

“We are still legally married, but I have taken back the Dlamini surname. My ID is back to Dlamini.”

She also told 702 in 2023 that she never envisioned being separated from her husband. She always thought she would raise her kids the same way she 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”.

A New York psychologist, Dr Dan Guerra tells VeryWellFit that some people lose weight during stress and others gain weight. This relates to different types of metabolisms across individuals, and it also relates to how we process stress, psychologically.

While Dr Lana Gionta says that our anxiety levels may become significantly heightened and that can cause symptoms in the digestive, endocrine, and cardiovascular systems.

“Psychological and physical changes that occur during a breakup can easily result in changes to your regular eating habits. Either a reduced appetite or avoidance of eating altogether,” adds the publication.

Minnie Dlamini and Quinton Jones got married in 2017 in the Western Cape and the wedding was televised as a three-part Showmax special.

Sowetan reported in 2022 that Dlamini and Jones tried to salvage their marriage by consulting with family and a counsellor.

The pair confirmed their divorce in a statement in February 2022 citing “emotional and post-traumatic distress that out-weighted their will”.

“In the last two years our family experienced incredible joy and devastating loss. During this time, we found comfort in knowing we had each other. Despite our better efforts to absorb the changes in motion, the emotional burden and the post-traumatic distress of our individual loss out weighted our will.”

“After months of separation and consultation with our family and counsellor, we have taken a decision to officially file for divorce. Despite the end of our marriage and romantic relationship, we remain friends, business partners and loving parents to our beautiful son,” said Jones and Dlamini.
