Thandeka Dawn King doesn't just play a boss lady on her television roles but she lives it in her real life too. The actress who won Best Actress at the KZN Entertainment Awards used her 'thank you' speech as a moment to expose the organisation for robbing her of R80 000.
This outburst gave the green light to talk about the series of unfortunate events in the celebs life.
Thandeka getting snubbed off her prize money is just the tip of the iceberg for the actress. ZAlebs reports that the Best Actress trophy was supposed to be accompanied by a R100 000 cash deposit. On the evening, King made it publicly known that she had been robbed by the organisation.

Of the R100 000 prize money, Dawn only saw about 20 grand, leaving her R80 000 short. The Uzalo actress is demanding answers and refusing to let it go.
The timeline of misfortune for Thandeka began last year when her marriage ended. Drum reports that the couple had been married for 15 years before going their separate ways. When speaking about the divorce, the actress said she had to remain strong for her children since he is their father.
Thandeka then decided to take a break from social media. Upon returning to Instagram, the celeb had a brand new bae in her arms. While enjoying the bliss of new love, TimesLive reports that King found herself knee-deep in pregnancy rumours. She quickly shut it down, saying:
"Listen here, there is no such thing as a bun in the oven here, this is me, comfortable and happy in my beautiful African body. I don't have another one, this is me! I hope we understand each other."
Thandeka can't seem to dodge the headlines but one thing the celeb is doing now is making sure the truth is being told.
