Anyone who follows Minnie knows how close she is to singer and radio presenter Unathi. However, fans on social media have weighed in on the nature of their friendship, arguing that Unathi had a hand in Minnie's divorce. According to peeps, it was Unathi, who is also a divorcee, who influenced Minnie.
"I knew something was wrong when Minnie started spending more time with Unathi from Idols."
@Thlolo15March also noted:
"Unathi is the reason Minnie Dlamini is filling for divorce... moral of the story is you can’t have a divorcee friend while you’re in a “happy” marriage."
As the saying goes, birds of the same feather flock together, but Minnie and her husband are opposites, according to fans. The South African also added to that saying although both Quinton and Minnie are in the entertainment industry, Quinton is strictly behind-the-scenes and is private while Minnie is bubbly and outgoing.
"It's a good thing Minnie Dlamini is leaving that marriage. She was slowly turning into a Granny kuloyamshado."
Peeps also allege that Minnie and Quinton's marriage was 'cursed' after airing on Showmax. Many of you are aware that the couple gave fans a glimpse of their private life with their three-part TV show, Becoming Mrs. Jones. However, following Mohale and Somizi's divorce, social media users are convinced that marriages with a special reality show don't last long.
