The TV personality’s baby brother is currently fighting for his life in ICU at an undisclosed hospital. Details of his critical condition have remained a close guarded secret, although a source close to the family claims that Khosini had suffered an aneurysm.
On Monday, rumours swirled on social media that the young pilot had died.
But the Dlamini family have poured cold water over the fake news reports.
They said in a statement; “The Dlamini family notes with concern the incorrect news that our son Khosini Dlamini has passed.
“We can confirm that Khosini has been admitted to hospital and is currently undergoing treatment in ICU at the moment.
The family also pleaded for privacy.
“We would like to reserve all comment on the matter and request that we are allowed privacy during this time.
“We kindly urge the public, media and bloggers to refrain from spreading fake news and causing apprehension.”
Minnie has a close relationship with Khosini as well as her older brother Pheska.
The family often share sweet posts of each other.
Fam, let's keep Minnie and her family in our prayers through this trying time.
