Cassper admits addiction ruined his relationship
The Mama I Made It rapper told Mpoomy Ledwaba that he was addicted to having sexual relationships with multiple women. There was a time when he would drive at 3 AM to meet up with other women while Thobeka and Khotso were asleep.
“God was showing me that I was destroying myself with sexual relationships. You’re having difficulties with women because you only see one thing.”
Cassper turns his life around
The rap star has been very candid about turning his life around. Cassper is a born-again Christian who told Mpoomy how life had humbled him.
"I was addicted to sex and sexual immorality in general. I had such a big ego, and I thought I was better than everyone else. I was humble in the sense that I was a good person, and I didn’t offend anyone. I was headed straight for hell if I didn’t have that wake-up."

Expert Kelley Nele lifts the lid on sex addiction
Briefly News spoke to a Relationship & Sex Educator, Kelley Nele, who shared insights on sex addiction and how they hinder romantic relationships.
"The debate of whether sex addiction is real is a controversial one. While the symptoms and effects of sex addiction are real, it is not recognised within the DSM-5. To expand on that, determining what does or doesn’t qualify as a sex addiction is trickery, as there is no consensus. Nonetheless, the compulsive behaviour expressed that affects both the individual with the “addiction” and the other party/parties is still valid."

On how a sex addiction can be cured with the help of the other partner, Kelley said:
"A sex addiction can be treated either via psychotherapy or 12-step programs. Because sex addiction is often a manifestation of another disorder (e.g OCD) it can also be treated with medication. Couples and individual therapy are crucial when dealing with sex addiction. Some partners report experiencing PTSD, therefore individual therapy or a support group can be incredibly helpful. As for prevention, treating existing mental illnesses and establishing healthier habits can help prevent relapse."
