HHP and Lerato who had been together for about six years had been engaged between 2015 - 2016. The couple had been very private about their relationship and for the longest of time, no one really knew that they were actually an item except their close friends and family.
Earlier on in the year, the couple had an interview on Real Talk With Anele and had spoken fondly of their relationship. However, in May HHP confirmed that they had gone their separate ways even though the two continued to share pictures of each other on Instagram.
When Lerato was involved in a serious accident in the year, HHP even went out to go visit her at the hospital and had asked people to pray for him and her during that trying time in their lives.
Considering how private the couple was, it was not clear if the two had gotten back together however in a surprising statement released by Sowetan Live the Tsambo family has gone out to confirm that Lerato was never married to HHP.
According to Sowetan Live, Nkululeko Ncana who is the family's spokesperson denied that Sengadi was HHP's wife.
"I would like to put this matter to rest and categorically state on record that Ms Sengadi is not, and was never married to Jabulani. She is not his wife!
"Ms Sengadi is Jabu's ex-fiancée and moved out of his home and his life on her own accord last year. She and her mother were requested to desist from spreading this falsehood.
"As things stand, the Tsambo family reserves its rights should Ms Sengadi continue to peddle these falsehoods."
The family further informed the publication that there was a lobola process that had occurred however it was never finalised.
