Generally, this past week was nothing short of bouts of sombreness in South Africa. The widely publicised story of 19 year old Uyinene Mrwetyana sent the nation into a state of frenzy.

Since then, women have come out in droves and shared their most personal sexual abuse stories on social media. Even a few local celebrities chimed in, such as television presenter Lalla Hirayama and Stylist Tshepi Vundla.

Last weekend, ZAlebs reported on the story of Tshepi's shocking revelation regarding the abuse that she endured at the hands of her well known former lover, Tebello Tibz Motsoane. After dragging him on Twitter, he quickly responded and stated that he does not recall being physically abusive towards Tshepi however admitted to being emotionally abusive as there were disrespectful episodes from his end.

Tweeps applauded Tshepi for not cowering in the corner and being trapped in a state of victimhood.

There was one special supporter that melted a lot of our hearts in these streets - JR.

JR is Tshepi's current partner and father to their son, Sibabelwe Bogatsu. Upon recognising the frenzy over his partner's tweet, JR wasted no time and assured his beautiful partner, Tshepi is loved.

JR posted the following on Twitter :

Tweeps also chimed in:

For the longest time, celebrities were perceived as unreal beings. Therefore It's always encouraging when well known personalities share their traumatic experiences with the public.

Kudos to JR for standing up for his girlfriend.
