Pearl Thusi has made it no secret that she is on DJ Zinhle's side in this AKA/Bonang alleged cheating saga. The Live Amp presenter got social networks buzzing with her spicy tweet last week.
But it looks like the drama between the two media personalities started two years ago. According to Sunday Sun, the beef started with the Revlon deal.
A source told the paper: "Pearl was the preferred girl at the time, but Bonang took the crown. Now it seems she hates her with everything she has hence and that’s why she’s on DJ Zinhle’s corner."
The source added that Pearl agreed for Bonang to get more, but Bonang apparently refused to share the spotlight.
Pearl was recently in Los Angeles for Live Amp to interview Pharrell Williams. Top Billing had sent Bonang.
According to the paper, Pearl asked Bonang to take pictures of her and Pharell at the interview. However, she was reportedly shocked when she found out that Bonang had only taken pictures of walls.
"Pearl screamed and cried, saying she knew Bonang doesn’t like her, but had no idea it was that deep."
Pearl told Sunday Sun: "I respect Bonang's work ethic. I tried to get to know her as a person. But I just don’t know who she is any more, so basically ngiyaphuma kuye (I am out of her life)."
When called for comment, Bonang said: "I was with Pearl in LA. But I don’t know what you’re talking about."
