Relationships

Marriage 

Lorna Maseko married Gcina “GC” Lukhele, a Joburg-based sales executive, in 2010 at the Memoire Wedding Venue in Muldersdrift. There were a total of 150 guests at Lorna Maseko’s wedding. Lorna Maseko made sure that all of her wedding guests were comfortable during the church service, and she also incorporated hymns sung by the River Church Band in the ceremony. 

Lorna Maseko’s marriage lasted for about six years before the pair called it quits due to an alleged cheating scandal. Grazia Magazine’s Twitter Page announced the news of Lorna Maseko’s divorce.

In 2019, news went round that Lorna Maseko and Floyd Shivambu were dating after being spotted in Melrose Arch soon after rumours of a rift between Shivambu and his wife Siphesihle began circulating. 

Child 

It is still unclear whether Lorna Maseko has kids. In September 2020, there were speculations about the celebrity chef being pregnant. Netizens wondered if the father of Lorna Maseko’s child was her rumoured bae Floyd Shivambu. 

However, Lorna was quick to refute the pregnancy rumours on her Twitter page, terming the rumours disgusting. She also cautioned people against faking stories about others when they do not know their whole story. She hinted at having problems conceiving when she revealed that she has fibroids.  

Controversy

Lorna Maseko was dragged into the cheating scandal that rocked fellow television presenter Katlego Maboe. The two were said to have been involved romantically. Maboe spilt the beans. He admitted that he got intimate with someone he was not supposed to be intimate with. He denied having knowledge of his mistress's marital status. He also did not reveal the identity of the woman but Mzansi connected the dots.
