Minnie Dlamini sets the record straight about Itumeleng Khune

Mzansi media personality and business Minnie Dlamini is currently on a promotional tour for her newly released rom-com feature film The Honeymoon. As such, the newly divorced media darling and aspiring actress has been delving into depth about her private life, which includes details about her exes.

One of her most well-recognized exes is none other than soccer star Itumeleng Khune. This is as their relationship happened during the height when Minnie was still considered an IT girl in the entertainment industry. At the height of their on and off again relationship it was speculated that the two dated between 2011 and 2014.

This is as they called off their relationship in 2014 after it was reported that the two were engaged. Moreover, at the time of them calling it quits, Itumeleng had paid a hefty lobola price as it was reported that Minnie was a virgin at the time.

However, Minnie is setting the record straight in terms of the misconceptions that have taken place since then.

In customary law, it is believed that once a groom pays lobola for their betrothed then the couple is technically legally married. As such, it would mean that during Minnie and Itumeleng’s engagement, if he had paid lobola for her then the two were traditionally married.

A matter that Minnie clarified when making an appearance during DJ Fresh’s recently created podcast WAW: What A Week. This is as she addressed what she believes is the biggest misconception held by the public about her. She addressed the matter by stating:

“That worst misconception is that Khune lobola’ed me, that, that is the worst one. I hate it, I hate it! People still think it’s true!”
