The couple's split in 2009 stirred up wild rumours on the social media streets. One story making the rounds alleged that Slikour had dumped his longtime girlfriend over a Facebook message. That would have been super savage!

The former lovebirds have never actually spilt the tea on why they broke up but in 2016, Bonang and Slikour outright denied the claims during an interview for his popular podcast, OK Mzansi reports.

"We just sort of let the story run‚ even though it’s not the truth...We never found the time to rectify it six‚ seven years later but that’s not what it was," she said during the interview.

Today, Bonang and Slikour are actually pretty good friends. The Being Bonang star has often gushed about the rapper being her "best boyfriend".

"You were very good to me, you were very, very good to me. I think to this day, I'll never speak ill of you, I'll never say anything negative about you because you've never been an a**hole to me and I appreciate you," she said.

Bonang lays assault charges against ex-boyfriend, DJ Euphonik

“A lot of people don’t know this but I used to organise these student parties and she used to be our door girl but she was ambitious about getting onto TV....before we knew it we were in a relationship. When you’re in an industry and there’s someone who understands the industry and understands you. It’s comfort‚” Euphonik said.

For a long time, Queen B and Euphonik were considered one of Mzansi's most influential power couples. But SowetanLive reports that things took a turbulent turn in 2012 when the media darling laid assault charges against the DJ.

Defending himself, Euphonik told Anele he apparently had a lot of "dirt" on Bonang. He also caused a stir on social media after calling the reality star a "hlanyo", meaning "mad person."

Years after the very public drama, peeps have come out in their numbers to apologize for bullying Bonang about the assault case. They were sorry for not believing the media darling especially after another woman came forward with similar charges against the DJ in 2021.

Speaking on the set of her hit reality show, Being Bonang, the starlet said lots of tears were shed:

"Let me tell you how I dealt with my break-up. You cry and cry and cry," she said.
