SOON af­ter Bongek­ile “Babes Wo­dumo” Sime­lane, re­vealed on Metro FM that she and her long-time fi­ancé, Mamp­intsha, real name Mandla Ma­phu­mulo, split up, news broke that she is in a re­la­tion­ship with for­mer Kaizer Chiefs goal­keeper, Bril­liant Khuzwayo.

BABES RE­VEALS SHE HAS A NEW MAN

Tongues were left wag­ging when dur­ing an in­ter­view with Metro FM’s drive time show host, Masech­aba Ndlovu, re­vealed that she was aware that Babes was be­ing phys­i­cally abused by Mamp­intsha.

Babes then re­vealed that she had moved out of his Westville home and had gone back to her par­ents’ home in La­montville. Dur­ing the in­ter­view with Masech­aba, Babes also re­vealed that she has a new man in her life, but did not re­veal his name, only say­ing, “Peo­ple will see soon.” De­spite split­ting ro­man­ti­cally, Babes re­vealed that she and Mamp­intsha were still busi­ness part­ners.

IS BRIL­LIANT THE CAUSE OF BABES AND MAMP­INTSHA'S SPLIT?

Since the in­ter­view, ru­mours are do­ing the rounds that Babes and Bril­liant are al­legedly an item, with pho­tos of the pair cir­cu­lat­ing on so­cial me­dia.

An in­dus­try in­sider tells Move! that Mamp­intsha and Babes' trou­bles were caused by her al­leged re­la­tion­ship with Bril­liant. The source also re­veals that Babes has a drink­ing prob­lem, which made the sit­u­a­tion worse be­tween her and Mamp­intsha.

“Mamp­intsha has kept Babes’ bad be­hav­iour a secret to pro­tect her ca­reer and shield her from the me­dia. Babes has been caus­ing headaches for Mamp­intsha for a long time,” says the source. Ac­cord­ing to other sources, Bril­liant is en­gaged to Nqo­bile Ndengezi, whom he has two chil­dren with. He is said to be madly in love with both women, but Babes is not both­ered by this. Ef­forts to get hold of Mamp­intsha and Bril­liant were un­suc­cess­ful as both their phones were off.

MAN­AGER DE­NIES RU­MOURS

How­ever, Keke Mokoena, Babes’ man­ager, de­nies that Babes is in a re­la­tion­ship with Bril­liant and that she has a drink­ing prob­lem.

“Th­ese are lies. Babes and Bril­liant have been friends for a long time. They were never in a re­la­tion­ship. Th­ese pic­tures are old pic­tures,” says Keke. “It is sad that Babes can­not have friends be­cause peo­ple will say she is dat­ing the peo­ple she is seen hang­ing around with. Babes is hu­man like ev­ery­one, she has friends.”
