Reacting to reports, JR told a local publication that the reports were ‘flawed’, especially where they mentioned that he has kids from a previous relationship.

“We didn’t have a wedding but a family welcoming and celebration (which serves part of the process of getting married), made of close friends and our family on Saturday. It’s no secret Tshepi and I concluded our lobola process in December and this was our next customary step.

“It’s not as specified in the article which is flawed in many ways, including having children from a past marriage/relationship.”
