Melanie Bala has finally opened up about her public split to her hubby of 10-years, Zwai, on CliffCentral.
South Africans were left in the dark for five months after their divorce announcement, but Bala talked to Gareth Cliff to explain why they decided to go their separate ways.
"We were together for 17 years and who you are when you meet at 20-something is a lot different to who you are when you are 40-something. You grow. You change. You evolve.", she explained.
She added they had reached a point where they knew they had to face the truth and be mature about it.
Bala said both of them had to admit they no longer brought out the best of each other, adding she did not want to be unhappy.
However, it's not like they would never see each other again, the South African celeb and Zwai would still be connected through their children, but she added she didn't want to "spend a lifetime fighting".
She released a statement on social media, which reads the decision to get a divorce was mutual.
