South African actress, Pearl Thusi, has left fans questioning if she had she revealed that she was officially off the market. Queen Sono shared a tweet on Saturday, 27 September 2020 stating, “Didn’t realize I could be so possessive till I saw he liked a picture I didn’t think he should feel comfortable liking ngikhona…. like WENZANI!!???”.
Pearl, who has consistently remained quiet about her love life on social media, had fans having to do a double-take as she publicly mentioned that she had a man in her life. However, what could have been a romantic announcement, turned into Tweeps going off at the mystery man for disrespecting the Queen. Many questioned Pearl on why she chose to reference him in a negative scenario on social media, seeing as though it would set the tone for how her fans treat her new boo.
A Twitter user responded with, “What is he doing liking inappropriate pictures though? You deserve answers Pearl”, to which Pearl responded with, “Exactly”, followed with a series of raised eyebrow and laughing faces. Her response fuelled the hate being given to the unnamed man, with fans demanding that Pearl find someone who only has eyes for her.
Pearl has not been linked to any one in particular in many years and has poked fun at love life on social media, or lack thereof. In July 2020, A Twitter user by the handle of @sya_nkabinde decided to shoot his shot at Pearl Thusi, and the good homie did not mince his words by telling her that he would love to be her boyfriend. He wrote, “If I die I die @PearlThusi cela kuba boyfriend yakho.” Pearl Thusi replied to his sweet tweet and said he must not die, but they should date once.
Romantic rumours that Pearl and DJ Zinhle have also done their rounds, with many misconstruing their tight-knit friendship. In an episode of Dinner At Somizi’s there pair clarified that they were just friends.
Pearl said they do not pay attention to the rumours that they are dating anymore, “It’s like when you know something is so false that you can’t even really pay attention to it,” she said. Zinhle also weighed in on the rumours and said even if they were dating so what?
“This is the thing for me and Pearl. We not even trying to entertain it because even if we were, so what? But we spoke about this, that Pearl and I are in an industry where friendships are a blur. We are in an industry where we have not experienced a sisterhood, so when we found each other — or when she found me — we just couldn’t believe what we have, a friendship that is actually real,” said Zinhle.
