South African on-air personality, actress and model Minnie Dlamini has opened up about her past relationship with Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune. She also spoke about marriage and the crush that rapper Cassper Nyovest has on her.
Speaking in an interview with DJ Fresh and Somizi on Metro FM on Friday morning, Minnie said she used to tell her fiancé Quinton Jones before their engagement that they should not get married but stay together and call each other “life partners”.
“I was over the fairy tale, I just wanted to be loved and love. But I knew that if I was ever going to get married, it would be with him,” she said.
Minnie further told DJ Fresh she found the crush Cassper had on her “funny and sweet and cute”.
“I mean, he’s still really respectful. He sent a message and said congratulations. He actually apologised for the rant because he did not expect it to get that viral. He was just being silly on Twitter. We actually have a very good friendship, he’s very cool. We like to make fun of it and he’s always like: ‘But you don’t realise how serious I am.’”
Minnie’s attitude towards marriage may have been influenced by her past relationships, she said, further addressing rumours Khune had paid R1 million in lobola for her.
“No soccer player ever paid my lobola; the first time it happened was now and I’m getting married now,” she said.
”I wish i woke up from that relationship early enough, but no hard feelings, life goes on” she stated.
Speaking about her much-publicised break-up with Khune, she said;
“I just wish I woke up sooner, that’s all. Not in a bad way,” she said.
An online tabloid once claimed that Khune ‘warned’ Cassper to ‘stay away’ from Minnie because she ‘gave him an STD’ .
