LATE last year, it was ru­moured that there was trou­ble in par­adise. Soon af­ter the ru­mours sur­faced, Lu­cille Gumbi, who is the wife of co­me­dian Trevor Gumbi, quickly dis­missed them. She said the cou­ple was only fac­ing chal­lenges in their mar­riage and they were in a process of re­solv­ing them. Now months later, af­ter try­ing to make it work, the cou­ple has called it quits.


The co­me­dian and his wife took to their so­cial me­dia to an­nounce their di­vorce af­ter be­ing mar­ried for over a decade.

The pair shared the same pic­ture of them­selves to­gether with a crack in the mid­dle and had the same cap­tions too. “It’s over ... 11 years of mar­riage and 17 years in a re­la­tion­ship. Over!”

Lu­cille told an­other pub­li­ca­tion, “It is true. We have not been to­gether for a long while. I don’t want to dwell on it or go into any de­tail right now. But we want to re­lease a state­ment to­gether to avoid 100 ques­tions.”

Speak­ing to an­other pub­li­ca­tion, Trevor also con­firmed the di­vorce. How­ever, he de­clined to elab­o­rate on the mat­ter.

The com­ments sec­tion of their posts were filled with mixed re­ac­tions from the pub­lic, with some fans think­ing it is a prank. Oth­ers sent their heart­felt dis­ap­point­ments.


Last De­cem­ber it was ru­moured that Trevor was dumped by Lu­cille af­ter she found out that he had al­legedly im­preg­nated a woman named Ayanda. Lu­cille then came out guns blaz­ing, say­ing this was not true. But she ad­mit­ted that they were go­ing through a rocky patch in their mar­riage.

“I don’t know that per­son called Ayanda, so for peo­ple to drag my name into such a thing is un­for­tu­nate,” Lu­cille told a Sun­day pa­per re­fer­ring to the woman ru­moured to be the mother of Trevor's child.

Last year, Move! spoke to Ayanda and she con­firmed that she in­deed has a child fa­thered by the co­me­dian, even though he de­nied it.

“I have a two-month-old baby with Trevor. He knows this quite well and he is throw­ing his weight around be­cause he is fa­mous. He didn’t want to take re­spon­si­bil­ity, and when I was preg­nant he told me that he is a mar­ried man and he can’t be the fa­ther of my child. We have been dat­ing for two years,” said Ayanda.

Trevor and Lu­cille were not an­swer­ing our calls and also failed to re­spond to our text mes­sages at the time of go­ing to print.
