- Pearl Thusi took to Instagram to post a spicy picture of herself in a bikini top... but it was not the picture that fans were concerned with
- The person behind the pic was the one fans were excited about after Pearl's caption said that her bae had taken the photo
- Pearl has yet to confirm the identity of her mystery man, which means fans are still speculating about who the guy could be
Pearl Thusi posted a saucy pic to Instagram and it got fans excited - but not for the most obvious reasons. Followers of the Queen Sono star were less concerned with what was in the picture than they were with who was behind it.
The star posed in her bikini top but hinted in her caption that her mystery bae had snapped the picture.
Fans took to the comments to tell the actress how beautiful she looked in the photo but also to ask Pearl when they would be told the identity of her new bae.
Pearl Thusi usually keeps certain aspects of her personal life private but fans can't help but speculate when she drops public hints. Her caption read:
"My sunshine... My person took this pic."
Followers complimented the star and some joked about her man's photography skills:
lifeofpiluckan: "Person must get better camera with more dynamic range."
missmaymaybaby: "Your person captured your glow!"
andrewbarberart: "Your person needs to focus a little more."
Briefly.co.za previously reported on when Pearl initially hinted to fans and followers at her having a new man in her life, albeit not in the most endearing way.
Pearl Thusi got her fans all riled-up after posting a tweet that not only hinted at her having a new man in her life, but also how possessive she is of her new boo. The Queen Sono star took to Twitter to relate to her fans about partners liking posts they shouldn't, but appeared to have revealed a bit more than that.
Pearl has not made anything Instagram-official, nor announced that she's dating someone, so fans were shook when she referred to a mysterious "he" in her tweet.
As much as fans were excited to hear that the star was dating again, they found that the more important news seemed to be that the was eyeing and liking pictures of women who were not Pearl.
Pearl has remained coy about her love life but the Twitter moment was enough for her fans to jump right in with the takes and opinions.
Many tweeps were left confused at how Pearl chose to announce her new romance, since the star had not mentioned anything prior. For the first public acknowledgement of her man to be something that painted him in bad light was interpreted by some of her fans as a strange move.
Pearl's fans are particularly protective of their queen so this was perhaps not the best way for the new man to win them over.
One user commented:
@FreshPrincePta: "Lol what is he doing liking inappropriate pictures tho? You deserve answers Pearl."
