TV presenter Lorna Maseko has laughed off any rumours about her dating life.

The media personality turned chef was embroiled in talk she was in a relationship with the EFF’s Floyd Shimbavu in September last year.

Maseko slammed a Sunday newspaper report that claimed she was pregnant. She denied the claim but did not put to bed the reports of her dating the politician.

“Let me nip this in the bud real quick! I’m NOT pregnant it’s truly disgusting that people can go on to create stories that are unreal – it’s actually EVIL!! Women suffer with many issues, fibroids (which I have), endometriosis & many others. You don’t know people stories-STOP IT!!,” she said at the time.

Her reaction or no reaction says it all, watch:

Maseko’s culinary skills have won her numerous prestigious awards. She recently was awarded Outstanding Passion by the Taste Awards for her YouTube cooking series, Lorna With A pinch of Salt / The Hostess With Lorna Maseko.
