Star’s wife sends SOS to Sun­downs

Nonhle’s so­cial me­dia posts cool off but she says all’s well at home

Sunday World - - Sunday Report - By So­maya Stock­en­stroom

The wife of Sun­downs mid­fielder Andile Jali, Nonhle, ex­hib­ited their fab­u­lous life through so­cial me­dia de­tail­ing the lav­ish as­pects of their life­style up un­til last year.

Many have spec­u­lated that the hon­ey­moon phase has ended, al­though Jali reg­u­larly posts pic­tures of her and their chil­dren ex­press­ing his undy­ing love.

This week sources claimed Jali’s an­tics have even up­set his wife who al­legedly wanted the club to in­ter­vene.

The sources claim that Nonhle had felt de­feated and wanted the club to help set the star straight.

“She said he was not sleep­ing [reg­u­larly] at home, the long­est be­ing away from home for six days, and has been drink­ing ex­ces­sively,” said a highly placed source.

But Nonhle re­futed these claims when Sun­day World asked for her com­ment.

“None of the al­le­ga­tions are true. Andile and I are hap­pily mar­ried, he is a re­spon­si­ble fa­ther who loves and cares for his chil­dren. He is cur­rently in train­ing in Port Eliz­a­beth and set­tling well in his new team. Should you have fur­ther ques­tions re­gard­ing his ca­reer, please con­tact the Sun­downs man­age­ment team,” she said in a writ­ten sms.

The 35-year-old mother rub­bished the claims about Jali’s way­ward be­hav­iour say­ing it was a cam­paign by his de­trac­tors.

“It’s a smear cam­paign and we are used to it. It’s as if peo­ple don’t want to see young black mar­riages suc­ceed.

I can’t say that I am shocked. When I was preg­nant with the twins last year and wanted to re­main pri­vate - there were also sto­ries that our re­la­tion­ship was on the rocks.

“But I can tell you he is a won­der­ful man whom I will be cel­e­brat­ing a wed­ding an­niver­sary with very soon,” she said.

Soon af­ter hav­ing their first daugh­ter Amahle, they cel­e­brated her three month an­niver­sary in a lav­ish af­fair.

Then there was an­other ex­trav­a­gant bal­le­rina themed birth­day party, to cel­e­brate her first birth­day.

The in­te­rior dec­o­ra­tor and fit­ness guru also in­vited the Top Billing to show off their lux­u­ri­ous home and also an­nounced that she was hav­ing twins.

While she once shared on In­sta­gram how Jali pur­chased her a Dior bag worth R64 000, their Paris get­aways, and snaps of her de­signer sneakers as she pro­fessed her undy­ing love, she has since deleted her In­sta­gram ac­count.

Nonhle Jali al­legedly com­plained to Sun­downs.
