Lerato Kganyago has finally opened up about her relationship with Katlego Mashego.

The actress, TV, and radio presenter, who's on top of her game right now, is Bona magazine's August cover star. She candidly spoke to the mag about her four-year relationship with the football star, which ended over a year ago. 

She told Bona that they are still good friends despite not being romantically-linked anymore: "I still love him. If it was meant to be, we'll get back together; if we don't, it's still okay. If he marries someone else, I'd be genuinely happy for him, and I think that's how he feels about me too."

She said there's no beef between them. Speaking about the decision to break up, Lerato revealed: "We broke up because we went through a rough patch that made our relationship toxic and neither of us could get over that. We needed time to heal from that, separately." 

She also revealed that in those four years, she forgot about herself and what she wanted. "When I realised this, I made up my mind to do right by me and put myself first. I'd neglected myself in the relationship and put things I wanted to do on hold... I sought to be the perfect girlfriend and lost focus."

Lerato said she's single and is not ready for a new boyfriend because she's busy.
