Social media has been abuzz since the evidence that Orlando Pirates footballer Thembinkosi Lorch and former Skeem Saam actress Natasha Thahane are the newest hot celebrity couple.
Fans have been excited since the news; with Orlando Pirates fans joking telling Natasha that she will beg the footballer, on their behalf, to stay at the club as more and more reports suggest that he will be leaving the club soon.
The rumours of the pair being romantically involved were fuelled by several pictures that they have posted, suggesting that they have been spending a lot of time together.
The one image that started all the commotion, sees Natasha in Zanzibar in a s_xy orange bikini. The shades she had on sold her out because one Twitter user zoomed in and spotted the Orlando Pirates striker. Shortly after, the footballer posted an image of himself in the same location. More and more pictures of the two personalities emerged and it was very clear that they were together in Zanzibar and probably on vacation. What put the nail to the coffin was their wrist bands, which were exactly the same.
Now, Lorch and both Natasha have responded to the dating rumours. An Instagram Live video of Lorch and DJ Maphorisa shows the two friends talking about the situation.
Maphorisa catches Lorch up on the latest gossip involving him, wanting to know if he is romantically involved with the actress. The football player responds by asking “what do I have to do with Natasha” and the amapiano ptoducer tells him how the rumours were fuelled, even telling him about the wrist band. Lorch vehemently denies dating Natasha in the video. In fact, the star pretends to not even know who Natasha is.
