When people get married, we hope that their love for each other will conquer and they will stay together until death do them apart. Unfortunately, regardless of how much people love each other, sometimes things just don’t work out.
This year we saw several divorces in Celebville, and we have to say many of them took us by surprise.
Let’s have a look at the celebs that called it quits in 2019.
DJ Black Coffee and Enhle Mbali
DJ Nkosinathi “Black Coffee” Maphumulo and Enhle Mbali never really had a perfect marriage. Their relationship was filled with lots of cheatings and allegations.
Earlier this year, rumour had it that Black Coffee was cheating on Enhle with David Guetta’s ex-wife, Cathy Guetta. The rumour was sparked by an Instagram post were Cathy was seen giving several hugs to Black Coffee at a gig in Cannes, France.
In 2013 there were also reports that the star had allegedly cheated on Enhle with a model and aspiring businesswoman.
Enhle has also openly opened up about Black coffee’s promiscuous ways.
“Personally, for me, cheating is an issue, but not as big as the fact that a person sat in front of you and lied to your face every single day,” Enhle told DJ Zinhle on her THD24 show, Yours Sincerely.
The pair were engaged in 2010 and had a traditional wedding a year later and a white wedding in 2017.
But two years later, the couple has called it quits.
Enhle broke the news about the divorce on Instagram. She wrote that this has been a very difficult year and asked for ‘space’ to deal with it.
She also said “All I’ve ever tried to do was be a great wife. A supportive wife, one that is respectful. Not only to my partner and everyone that is around him…It is indeed a situation that no one wants to see themselves in, but here we are.”
Black Coffee also confirmed the divorce.
In an interview with YFM’s DJ Sabby, he said he is not the first person to divorce.
“I don’t feel I owe anyone anything. I’m not the first person to be in this situation. No one is dead, no one is abused and nothing terrible happened. We just decided this is where we want to be, but the public feels like they want to have a say to a point where sometimes it’s disrespectful,” he said.
