At this point in time, the public have decided that they are well and truly done with with couple and their on-and-off antics. Ever since Masechaba Ndlovu exposed the nature of Babes and Mampintsha's abusive relationship on Metro FM last year, we've had a front row seat to their rollacoaster of a relationship. The drama resurfaced in a big way earlier this year when Babes streamed an instagram live video of her abuse at the hands of Mampintsha.
Since then, they have left the public confused by what some believe is mixed signals. Fans have been speculating whether or not they are back together and if they have finally left what appears to be a toxic relationship.
Well... We all got our answer on Thursday when Babes shared a video of herself, sitting extremely cosily in a Jacuzzi alongside Mampintsha. She captioned the video with a simple "Happy Birthday I love you Mampintsha" but it was really the contents of the clip that had us all shook.
A barely-clad Babes could be seen fondling her breast while she panned the camera up and down her body. Mampintsha, meanwhile, looked very satisfied with life and seemed to be gesturing at the camera almost as if to say, "Take that Masechaba Ndlovu and the rest of SA!"
Watch the video for yourself and try your hardest not to cringe...
As you can expect, people on social media have found the video disturbing on a number of levels. First and foremost, we didn't need to see them getting this intimate. More importantly, however, many feel as if this video is the latest of a number of slaps in the face that we have received since the abuse saga first went viral.
Of course, many others have taken this to be a reminder of the advice that AKA is constantly giving us these days: to mind our own business.
There are a number of other commenters who have gone to great lengths to explain that Babes Wodumo might be a completely independent woman, but her actions might have more serious consequences than she realises. For instance, by seemingly asking for help and then rejecting it, many fear she has sent the wrong message about the trauma that many abuse victims in South Africa experience:
And to think, just 16 weeks ago, the Gqom queen looked to have escaped Mampintsha's clutches when she proclaimed, "I could have been next!!This could have been you,your sister,your daughter,your niece.....We are not victims but survivors".
Where do you think Mampintsha and Babes' relationship will go next?
