A year after their very private wedding, Pabi Moloi and her then-husband- Ruan Adams broke up. The reasons for their split have not been revealed although there are speculations that Pabi Moloi’s husband was allegedly unfaithful to her.

Since their separation, Pabi Moloi and her ex-husband Ruan Adams have been engaged in a long court battle with issues such as child custody and property division being the centre of it all.

In 2017, shortly after their split, Ruan Adams and Pabi Moloi trended on social media after Ruan accused Pabi of keeping their child away from him. In the post, Ruan Adam lamented about how he had spent lots of money on lawyers’ fees just to see his son but Pabi had made sure that he couldn’t.

Recently, Pabi Moloi’s separation got messier. According to a report published by Sunday World, Pabi Moloi’s ex-husband issued her with a demand letter expressing his wish to dissolve their marriage. 

Ruan Adams is reportedly demanding 50% of Pabi Moloi’s estate claiming that since they married in a community of property when he paid lobola for her in 2016, he is entitled to half of all the property that the two had during their marriage. In addition to that, Pabi Moloi’s ex-husband is also reportedly demanding R8500 monthly spousal support.

Although Pabi Moloi through her lawyer has since denied ever being legally married to Ruan Adams, the old saying that the internet never forgets seems to be working against her. 

Recently a photo of Pabi Moloi with her Ruan Adams in matching traditional outfits emerged. The now-deleted post was accompanied by the caption “So many people got married last weekend, even me.”
