The Real Housewives of Johannesburg (RHOJ) star Lebo 'JoJo' Gunguluza has confirmed that she is divorcing her husband, who has the same name of Lebo. Before she became a Gunguluza, Lebo had used her maiden name, Mokoena.
The couple got married in 2017 in a beautiful traditional ceremony. The following year, they tied the knot in a lavish affair that took place in Mauritius. The couple flew out around 30 guests and made sure that they had five-star accommodation.
More than 100 people came to the ceremony from South Africa and Mzansi actress Thembi Seete was also in attendance. Lebo's marriage received criticism from the public and rumours began to swirl that there was trouble in paradise.
Taking to social media, Lebo's husband confirmed that the two had called it quits and are currently co-parenting their beautiful son.
"Yes, we have been separated for almost a year now and our divorce is almost finalised. We remain good friends and co-parents to our son. I hope this brings clarity to speculation. Thank you," he said.
Reality television fans are disappointed as many of them looked up to the couple and their lifestyle. Lebo has also changed her surname back to Mokoena on social media.
It is a sad thing indeed when a marriage comes to an end, but the Gunguluzas are committed to staying civil.

However, Kudzai rubbed a number of social media users up the wrong way when he posted a throwback picture of Khanyi, calling her "dusty". Fans assumed that Kudzai was calling Khanyi dusty because her skin was much darker back in the day.
It's no secret that Khanyi has had cosmetic procedures done to lighten the complexion of her skin.
