Pearl was speaking openly about a fallout she had with her friends that she didn't mention.

“I was friends with someone for a very long time. I loved them, they loved me, and I believe we loved each other. But I think we had outgrown each other. I didn’t get back to her for a while after something had happened.

“I was dealing with a lot of things. I just moved, and there was just a lot of drama in my life and I didn’t get back to her long enough for anyone to get upset. Validated. Then when I came back to say I am sorry, this was my situation, this person punished me. Maybe they were done with my excuses,”  she said.

Tweeps continued to speculate that she was referring to DJ Zinhle and Lerato Kganyago. Taking to her Twitter timeline, Pearl requested tweeps to stop speculating and said she had many friends before fame.

“This is nonsense. Guys — Zinhle and Lerato have not been my only friends. I didn’t burst out of a rock and become famous — I have childhood friends, before fame friends etc. Please stop this,” she wrote

For a long time, there have been rumours about a fallout between Pearl Thusi and DJ Zinhle, though the two friends have consistently denied there is bad blood between them on social media.

The most recent incident that had fans questioning DJ Zinhle and Pearl Thusi’s friendship was when a video of the two friends during Moozlie’s birthday party emerged.

In the video, DJ Zinhle is seen spinning the decks when Pearl Thusi approaches her. Zinhle gestures at Pearl dismissively and calls DJ Brandon for assistance; at this point, Pearl walks away.

The clip sparked a conversation on Twitter with tweeps giving their two cents on the incident and on the women’s friendship. The general conclusion from many tweeps was that the friendship is on the rocks and that the two were only forcing issues.  

Taking to Twitter, DJ Zinhle explained her side of the story saying that she had not treated Pearl meanly at all.

"Hey guys. I need to clear things up. Pearl & I had a great time & on the video you saw, I was gesturing to Brandon, whom I was playing a set with, to come & select the song cause we were using his USBs," wrote Zinhle.

Pearl Thusi also came in to narrate her side of her story. She retweeted one of DJ Zinhle’s tweets and explained her confusion at how things had escalated very fast given that she had only decided to get out of the way after realizing that DJ Zinhle was busy.
