Matheba seemed to getting the worst of the online backlash, with people blatantly calling her a home-wrecker. Jiyane and Forbes ended their relationship a couple of weeks ago, after which Jiyane released a statement saying the break-up was amicable. The couple recently welcomed a daughter, Kairo, into their family before announcing their split.
However, Zinhle backtracked yesterday with a post stating she had decided to come clean after “the continued public display” of Forbes’s and Matheba’s relationship.
The timing of the latest scandal was interesting – Forbes released his diss track Composure on Tuesday and Matheba was set to star in an E! News special last night. Her press agency, DNA Brand Architects, released the following statement: “This is to confirm that Ms Matheba is aware of the allegations made against her. We are … unfortunately unable to comment further as the issue has been handed over to Ms Matheba’s legal team. We can however confirm that Ms Matheba is currently not involved in a relationship, as she has always stated. Bonang is solely focused on her work …”
