Shauwn Mkhize
South Africa’s favourite rich person, Shauwn Mkhize, is known for a lot of things. Her over-the-top extravagant lifestyle, her love for her only son, her famous reality television show, her kind, and generous heart, and her love for big machines. We could go on and on but that is beside the point.

This article answers all your questions about who exactly is Shauwn Mkhize’s husband, her divorce, her children, and who she is currently dating.

Shauwn Mkhize’s husband, currently ex-husband, is Sibusiso Mpisane who is better known as Sbu Mpisane.

The two met in the early 1990s at a party and started dating shortly after. At the time when they met, Sbu was a metro police officer in Durban but he quit to join Shauwn’s construction company.

Sbu and Shauwn got married sometime in 1991 and went on to build a family together, and a multi-million empire. In 2011, they celebrated their tenth wedding anniversary, unfortunately, they didn’t stick around to celebrate their 20th.

In 2018, Shauwn Mkhize and Sbu Mpisane dominated headlines after it was reported that the two were going through a divorce following Sbu Mpisane’s allegedly many cases of infidelity.

The couple who had been regarded as one of the most powerful celebrity couples in Mzansi when they were together had one of the most publicized divorces in South Africa and it was also a very messy divorce.

The divorce hit hard at Shauwn Mkhize who had opted for the community of property marriage rather than keeping her finances separated and independent from her husband. 

Sbu Mpisane enlisted the services of Mxolisi Nxasana as his divorce attorney and reportedly demanded R200,000 monthly maintenance from Shauwn on top of the R559, 000 monthly salary he was already earning. He also took over Royal Eagles FC which the couple had jointly bought in 2014.

You know that a divorce is messy when the children get involved. The couple’s son Andile Mpisane took to Instagram where he wrote a long post accusing his father, whom he referred to as “his mother’s husband” in the post, of being selfish, a bad father, and for cheating on his mother amongst other things. 

Sbu's response to his son’s allegation was quite hilarious. He simply pointed out that Andile was not literate enough to write such a post.

After their divorce, Shauwn Mkhize’s ex-husband continued to live in their La Lucia home. If you have seen the pictures of Shauwn Mkhize’s house then you already know how massive the place is. 

Shauwn disclosed that despite living on the same property, the two never met as they lived in different wings of the house. Sbu lived in the wing registered to him and Shauwn while Shauwn lived on the wing registered under Andile Mpisane.

Shauwn and Sbu also have a daughter called Sbahle Mpisane who was born from Sbu Mpisane’s previous relationship with another woman. Even though she is not her biological daughter, Shauwn Mkhize and Sbahle Mpisane have one of the greatest mother-daughter relationships and they often gush over each other on social media.
