Rumor has it that TV presenter Minenhle ‘Minnie’ Dlamini and Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune have ended their romantic relationship after being together for approximately two years. The news of their breakup surfaced after Minnie posted a Tweet which implied that she is now single.
According to Sunday Times, the Tweet read: “Got some free time finally! Let’s do that single ladies night out before we get hectic lol #2013NewBeginnings”
It seems like it is true that money can’t buy you love. Khune bought Minnie a BMW M3 in 2011 for her 21st birthday. Sources close to her say she has returned it and hadn’t driven it for over a year. It is unclear if this was due to their troubled relationship or the fact that she has Jeep sponsorship.
Last year on Mablerh’s show on uKhozi FM Minnie revealed that she got a Jeep on her birthday. She didn’t explain how she got it. Later we heard that she was sponsored by Jeep. Perhaps some of the conditions of her sponsorship didn’t allow her to be seen driving other cars.
Did they really break up? Answering this question is hard. Their breakup is still just media speculation. I went through Minnie’s Twitter wall to read the Tweet myself and see replies but unfortunately she had removed it. May be they had a fight, broke up for a short time but mended things up and got back together a few hours later. Many couples do that all the time. Therefore, I wouldn’t be surprised if the two are seen together on a date again in the near future.
