It ended in tears for some couples this year. Some break ups made headlines while others were a little more quiet. Briefly.co.za gathered a few break up stories we covered in 2020
1. Zodwa Wabantu and Vusi Buthelezi
There was trouble in paradise for Zodwa Wabantu and her boyfriend, Vusi. The star said Vusi has left and she's not sure if he's coming back. It appears that this break might lead to a permanent break-up.
The two were happily quarantining together until Zodwa's Durban house was broken into and items worth R100 000 were stolen.
The stress of the incident then caused a rift between the loved-up pair.
Zodwa told Drum magazine: “Things were not working out. He left, but I’ve learnt that you must allow people to leave. You accept things as they come and as they are and allow people to be themselves.”
2. Lerato Kganyago and Thami Ndala divorce
Lerato Kganyago might just have set the record for shortest celeb marriage.
The beautiful radio personality announced that she and hubby of two months, Thami Ndlala, have separated.
Lerato released a statement on her Instagram stories regarding the situation. She wrote:
"It is with sadness that [I] announce that Thami and I have decided to go our separate ways. We have come to realise that our different priorities and workloads have not afforded us the time to invest in our relationship.
"We will continue to care deeply for each other, and look forward to growing our friendship. We have nothing more to say on this subject, and hope that our privacy will be respected during this difficult time."
3. LootLove and Reason split
LootLove and Reason haven't been seen together in public for months and Mzansi has been stressing.
Anyone who suspected that their relationship was on the rocks when the couple unfollowed each other on social media, was right on the money.
"It's all fun and games until you're put into a position to share something you don't want to share. This happened with my pregnancy and it happening now again.
"To be honest, I would've preferred to not say anything, but here we are- I got contacted by Sunday Sun and I thought it would be best for me to say something to avoid being misquoted or lied about. My team and I have responded to the journalist as well."
4. AKA and DJ Zinhle
South Africa's favourite couple has split. DJ Zinhle and AKA have ended their relationship, which they rekindled less than a year ago.
Briefly.co.za learned that the couple got back together in March last year after a very public break-up amidst accusations of cheating.
According to The Citizen, AKA ended the relationship in December not long after her birthday and the couple did not spend the festive season together.
The gossip being spread around is that AKA and DJ Zinhle had an argument at her party about friends and families meddling in their affairs. There were also rumours that DJ Zinhle was seen dancing with Cassper Nyovest, AKA's rival.
Meanwhile Briefly.co.za reported that DJ Zinhle and Black Motion's Murdah Bongz got caught in the same place, at the same time yet again. These two really just need to let their love be known so that we can all bask in it.
It is not always that your first love is your true love. Sometimes we need to go through a lot before life blesses us with what we deserve, and we are hoping that this is what has happened in the case of Zinhle.
