No one enters into a new relationship expecting it to end. Many of us see forever when we find a new partner and decide to start a new chapter with them, unfortunately, that is not always the case. Feelings fade, people grow apart, relationships end and love runs out for a lot of us. Likewise, a few of our favorite ZAlebs have experienced their fair share of struggles when it comes to love.
This list looks at some of the shortest-lived ZAleb relationships Mzansi has ever seen.
Talk about shock! No one saw this one coming and when our favorite fitness Bunny Sbahle Mpisane and footballer Itumeleng Khune made their relationship public, it really sent shock waves around the country. They were the poster couple for fitness goals and they just looked so good together. However, as good as they looked together, it just seems like their relationship was not meant to last.
The couple appeared to be going through a rocky patch however the final nail on the coffin came after Sbahle’s horrific accident. The fitness bunny was involved in a bad car accident that left her with amnesia among other injuries that saw her spend months in a wheelchair. During her recovery period, she forgot how she fell in love with Khune which resulted in the couple losing their connection. As tragic as this was, Khune was by her side during her healing process until they eventually called it quits.
Cassper Nyovest is Mzanzi’s lover boy so there was no way he would miss out on this list. When he entered the entertainment scene and began making a name for himself, Cassper had the hugest crush on fellow celeb Amanda du-Pont. The couple announced their relationship when Amanda laid a kiss on the rapper during one of his live performances. Mzanzi was smitten however shortly after the rapper released a song letting fans know they had broken up.
Enhle Mbali and Black Coffee had a fairytale love story that ended tragically. From their globe trotting pictures to their beautiful wedding, the ‘power couple’ looked like they would last a lifetime. However tragedy struck and their love story was tarnished with all manner of accusations from physical violence to infidelity.
Kelly Khumalo also had a brief but steamy love affair with Healer Zamokwakhe ‘Bhaka’ Nzama. Although the two were evidently in love, their relationship was founded on so much drama as Nzama was already in a relationship and it was just a year after the death of Senzo. Kelly and Nzama eventually ended their relationship after an altercation that left fans with so many questions.
This list has shown us that relationships are not any easier for the rich and famous. The good thing is that no matter how messy the break up was, our favs still got back out there, and never gave up on love. Finding a partner is never easy but love is beautiful and we are happy our celebs found it in each other, no matter how brief.
