This is what we’ve been asking ourselves after finding out about Thando Thabethe and Frans Mashao’s alleged break-up. According to Sunday Sun, Thando dumped her man for allegedly cheating on her.
This is the last thing we expected, especially because they were planning to get married soon. We’ll never forget how excited and happy Thando was after sharing her engagement news with the nation.
We listened as she told her 5FM listeners about how her man popped the question.
She revealed: “It was Thursday in Ibiza. So obviously I was there for work and I don’t think he had planned to do it but we had a moment just him and I and it was a very deep conversation, and I guess he felt it was the right time. So then he went down on his knee and then he said ‘will you marry me’. But he didn’t have a ring ‘cause we were all the way in Ibiza, it wasn’t something he planned…”
And, get this, he got the ring designed as soon as they got back to Mzansi. “So there is no ring like this in the world. He got it specifically designed for me.”
Where it all began
The couple met on a yacht a few years ago. Speaking to Bona magazine, Thando explained how it all went down. "I gave him my number and we met up in Johannesburg and have been together ever since."
Both Thando and Frans were never shy to share pictures of each other on social media. And they attended a lot of red carpet events together, as couples do! They never hid from anyone. The former Generations: The Legacy starlet told Bona that she’ll flaunt her relationship fearlessly.
"I don't put myself under too much pressure. I'm not going to hide my man just because I'm in the public eye. When I feel like posting his pictures on social media, I do. Everyone wants to show off their love, and I'm no different just because I'm a public figure."
Her biggest supporter
A few months ago, the couple threw an engagement dinner which was attended by close friends and family members. During her speech, Thando got emotional when speaking about her man. “… He’s always by my side, always supporting everything that I do, and I can’t imagine my life without you,” Thando said.
Both Thando and Frans are yet to confirm or deny whether the reports are true. However, the actress and TV presenter has been spotted without her engagement ring. She recently celebrated her 28th birthday and her loved ones were present, while Frans was nowhere to be seen in the pictures and videos she shared on social media.
Thando also left a rather cryptic message on one of her Instagram stories, where she revealed that she had lost “the greatest love” of her life. Was she talking about Frans? We guess only time will tell.
