After Mzansi found Natasha Thahane’s bae, footballer Thembinkosi Lorchthrough a little digging on social media, one would think that our ZAlebs would be a little more careful when sharing their baecation snaps, especially when they do not want us to know who the people in their lives are. Not that we're complaining.

Afropop musician and reality TV star, Kelly Khumalo has recently revealed that she does have a new man in her life. Well, after some digging, we have found him.

It's safe to say that the Empini hit-maker has a thing for players, football players to be specific, because her new boyfriend is also a footballer.

It's no secret that the Life With Kelly reality star has her her fair share of drama where her relationships are concerned.  Her first baby daddy,  Jub Jub is an ex convict who served time for culpable homicide when he and a friend drag raced and killed school children in a horrific accident while they were under the influence of drugs. Although the Ndikhokhele rapper faced the full might of the law, his relationship with the award-winning singer is very shaky - in fact, Kelly wants nothing to do with him. She calls him a deadbeat father who makes no effort to be in their son Christian's life. However, the Uyajola 9/9 presenter has a different 'truth' about his duties as a father, as he has previously claimed that it is Kelly who prevents him from being in their son's life.

The singer, who is considered one of the best vocalists in the country, has also dated late Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates goalkeeper, Senzo Meyiwa. The two have a daughter together, whose name is Thingo.

Meyiwa was shot on October 26 2014 in Vosloorus at the family home of musician Kelly Khumalo, who was his girlfriend. It is only six years later, in 2020, that arrests were made.

In this last week's episode of the star's reality show, Kelly Khumalo spoke about her relationship with the late footballer. She opened up about how she found out that Senzo was married when she was 3 months into her pregnancy. She explained that this hurt her so much that she ended up lacking trust -  not only with their relationship, but with human beings in general. She claims not to trust a single soul and it's all because of her past experiences.

"The biggest thing is I don't have trust. I just don't trust human beings period. Because I've gone through this with my late boyfriend where I was lied to and I only found out that this man was married when I was 3 months into my pregnancy," she said.

Now, however, she seems to have found love and trust in the hands of professional footballer, Mthokozisi Yende. Mthokozisi is a former Kaizer Chiefs player who is currently signed to Maritzburg United FC. Many snaps seem to suggest that the two are an item. For one, they have been spotted in the same locations, and if you check the dates of when their snaps were posted they will correspond. One thing we've picked up on the two celebs, who have been keeping their relationship under wraps, is that they also enjoy wearing matching outfits.
