However, she's been keeping her head held high and is focusing on her career, not the negative vibes from the public.
According to City Press, the singer will star in an upcoming biopic about late iconic musician, Lebo Mathosa, The Lebo Mathosa Story.
The true story is set to be released later this year, Briefly.co.za gathered.
If sources close to the production are to be believed, Somizi Mhlongo's daughter with Palesa Madisakwane, Bahumi, will be playing the role of young Lebo while Kelly will be Lebo as an adult.
As of yet, neither of the women have confirmed their roles, likely because of non-disclosure agreements. Vice President of Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) Africa's BET, Youth & Music, Monde Twala, did not want to deny or confirm the involvement of Kelly and Bahumi.
The biopic will be a 6-part BET Africa drama series.

Lebo made a name for herself and became admired and adored all over the country, but sadly a car crash claimed her life on 23 October, 2006.
