ProVerb has revealed that he wanted to take his own life after his ex-wife cheated on him a few years ago. The Idols SA presenter recently launched his memoirs titled The Book Of ProVerb where he opens up about going through depression after his divorce from Onalerona Moreo.
The rapper shook many when he revealed that he tried to end his life in 2015 after he tried to mend their relationship through counselling. The star detailed how he planned to end his life after he failed to mend the failing relationship.
According to ZAlebs, the star drove to three pharmacies and purchased strong painkillers on one Friday night. He detailed how he got home and hugged Onalerona before he went to their patio. Proverb then locked himself in, drank all the pills with a bottle of wine. Luckily, his brother found him in time and took him to hospital, according to the publication.
Onalerona, who is ProVerb's mother of two kids, cheated on him with controversial businessman Edwin Sodi - who has strong links with the ANC.
ProVerb told All4Women that he now only focusses on the positives in his life.
"This for me is the biggest take-away I hope those who read the book receive. I address how depression is a daily struggle and how I service my peace and wellbeing daily by focusing on all the positives, being eternally optimistic and by celebrating the milestones big or small. I’m in a fantastic space, personally and professionally."
Briefly.co.za reported that ProVerb wasn't shy to talk about some of the skeletons that are buried deep in his closet, including the painful divorce he endured a few years ago. One of his fans, rato.modise2020, took to the star's comment section on Instagram and wrote:
"I can't wait to read it especially on how you moved on to be more successful and happy after your marriage, I'm here struggling to move on."
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that Rami Chuene has shared that her recent tweets about the Hawks were not aimed at the Fergusons. The veteran actress recently set social media alight when she revealed that she wants the Hawks to raid the entertainment industry.
The Isono star wants the Hawks to investigate alleged corruption and exploitation in her industry. Tweeps were quick to assume that she was sub-tweeting her former bosses, the Fergusons. They accused her of being jealous of them after they allegedly did not renew her contract on The Queen.
Rami explained that she was not referring to the Fergusons when she tweeted about "the mighty, unstoppable and greedy entertainment gods".
"The entertainment industry is huge guys. I can’t be talking about the industry and you think I’m talking about one show/production. I’m way bigger than that. Yes, I am. You’re thinking one grain and I’m talking about the whole farm."
