The Podcast And Chill crew were recently in Polokwane for a brunch featuring the outspoken Dineo Ranaka.
A lot of aspects of her personal life were discussed including her relationship with her ex-husband.
“The third baby daddy chose me and then I eventually chose him after I didn’t want to choose him and then we became such good friends. We enjoyed each other’s company, and we became good friends,” shared Dineo.
In the tell-all interview, Dineo revealed that she left her ex because he was abusive.
“If that guy didn’t hit me in my marriage, then we would still be on good terms. I had my three-month-old baby in my arms the last time he hit me and I was like no, this is not how it’s going to go down. Not me who doesn’t submit to bull….
“He was like I always say that in interviews because I’m trying to prove to people and I was like no, I actually don’t say those things in interviews because I’m trying to prove to people that I’m a unique type of woman. Really, I don’t submit to bull, and hitting me is bull and I’m not going to submit and we got divorced. I’m not even lying about it.
Dineo further revealed that he was narcissistic and abusive.
“They try and threaten you to silence you. If anyone is in an abusive relationship don’t take those threats to heart. Speak about your pain, speak about your experience, talk about it, and make the abuser smaller and smaller and smaller in the capacity of how they think they are a big monster. Abusive people tend to threaten you and they have a tendency to want you to shut up about your story,” she warns about abusive men.
The radio personality refused to be silent hence she is telling her story to the world.
“I’m going to talk about my story and I’m going to talk about how I was beaten up in my marriage and I’m proud that I didn’t waste years of my life serving a man who’s not worthy of my service because when I serve, I serve my boy and he knows it.”
Admitting that she can be toxic, Dineo says when she serves, she does it wholeheartedly.
“All the guys that I have been with know when I’m toxic but when I serve, I serve. I was like I don’t deserve this though. A few months into the marriage I went for divorce.
“The signs are always there but here’s the thing, as human beings, I don’t think I’m going to blame myself for believing that a person can be different. Because on the larger scale of our relationship he really was great.
Yes, he cheated on me, If I was still in that marriage, I’d be planning to cheat on him too. He knows this, we discussed it. I told him when my caesarian scars get better ke tlogo febela go hlanya, shared Dineo Ranaka.
