We’ve seen broken engagements, broken vows, and the splits of both long-term and newer relationships — and while we haven’t quite reached 2015 breakup levels yet, we’re still charting the separations of famous couples so far this year. Keep reading to see them all now, then look back at all the breakups that have shocked us the most this year.
Khune and Sbahle
The pair posted cute pictures on social media, of them working out together and cuddling up a storm. Sadly, their hot romance fizzled.
Sbahle then shared a picture – which she later deleted – of the couple in happier times with a sad caption: “Not everything works out the way you wish for it to do… Some situations are worth removing yourself away from! I am no longer dating the Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana goal keeper anymore sadly. (sic)”
Cassper and Boity
The lovebirds shocked their fans when it was revealed in March that they had called it quits.
Boity admitted in an interview with True Love magazine that she cried over the break-up, and was angry, but “life continues”. She hinted that their busy schedules played a big part in their break-up.
Blue Mbombo and K2
Blue confirmed the break-up in a Facebook post. “Katlego and I are no longer together. ..it has been months now. However we still support and respect each other,” she wrote in the post. Blue did not elaborate on the reasons for the break-up but hinted at the pressures of having a relationship that was so public.
Da Les and Aurea Alexander
Rapper Da L.E.S was left red-faced after his baby mama, Aurea Alexander, took to Twitter earlier this month to tell the world he cheated on her with one of her friends. Aurea and the alleged mistress exchanged some spicy words on the social networking site, that saw them trending.
Some Tweeps even suggested that Da L.E.S’ alleged cheating did not come as a surprise, because a) that is what rappers do, and b) he is friends with AKA – the ‘baddest’ cheater of them all.
Khanya and Matli Mohapeloa
Khanya Mkangisa’s relationship with actor Matli Mohapeloa was rocky from the start. Khanya took to Snapchat in June to tell her fans that they had split up. “People keep asking me about it and it’s just so annoying… I’m single, please don’t ask me about my ex-boyfriend.”
