Arthur and Chomee, whose real name is Thulisile Madihlaba, have tiptoed around questions as to whether they’re an item for a long time, and the renowned music producer has finally come clean amidst rampant rumours that she cheated on him with DJ Euphonik.
Speaking to Drum magazine, Arthur finally stopped beating about the bush when he declared: “I love her.”
And while singer and dancer Chomee has personally refuted claims that she’s been seeing Euphonik, the admissions of a clearly distraught Arthur suggest that his relationship with his 27-year-old girlfriend is over, or at the very least on rocky ground and uncertain.
Choking up as he spoke, according to Drum, Arthur said: “I’m not okay, let’s do this [interview] later. I still have feelings [for her]. Such feelings can’t end in a few weeks. We were friends and it [the relationship] developed from there. I didn’t think we would become partners.”
Arthur discovered Chomee when she was only nine-years-old and he has since then nurtured her talent and helped her to grow her career.
And considering the young age at which she moved into his house after he saw that she was destined for fame, it’s perhaps understandable that the couple have always been reluctant to admit that they were romantically involved.
Arthur, who is now in his forties, admitted that he has thought about marrying her and that Chomee became a mother to his children, but wouldn’t say exactly when they started dating.
Refusing to comment, he merely said: “I’d rather not talk about it. Let her answer that question.”
