Not only do celebrities have to worry about running into their exes at events, but they also have to be on the lookout for their new equally famous partners.
Some stars publicly snatched their partners from another celebrity, while other exes went on to be good friends.
Here’s a list of celebrities who have dated the same person and/or share the same ex! Minnie Dlamini is currently happily engaged to TV producer Quinton Jones, but once upon a time she saw herself marrying a different man. Minnie and soccer star Itumeleng Khune were one of SA’s most loved-up couples.
“It was the kind of relationship I didn’t see ending. I did see myself marrying him,” Minnie told Real Talk with Anele in 2016. But it was not meant to be, and Itumeleng went on to date fitness junkie Sbahle Mpisane – who reportedly dumped him last year for cheating.
Plot twist! Minnie was close friends with Sbhale’s mother, KZN businesswoman Shawn Mpisane. DJ Zinhle and Bonnag Matheba found themselves in one of the biggest love triangles Mzansi has ever seen. DJ Zinhle dumped AKA in 2015 after he allegedly confessed to cheating on her with Bonang – while she was pregnant!
AKA and Bonang denied the cheating allegations, but several months later went public with their hot romance.
Minnie Dlamini’s current beau Quinton Jones was romantically linked to Pearl Thusi. But if you think Minnie and Pearl give each other side-eye whenever they run into each other, then think again.
The pair were booked for the same London gig in 2015, and the tabloids assumed sparks would fly. But they are on friendly terms, and couldn’t be bothered that they dated the same man. Not only do they follow each other on Instagram, but Pearl was one of the first celebrities to celebrate Minnie’s engagement. It really is a small world! Long before AKA and Bonang hooked up, Queen B was dating another famous man – DJ Euphonik.
Unlike many stars who seem to be on friendly terms with their exes, DJ Euphonik can’t seem to stop talking about Bonang. He has dissed SA’s media darling on several occasions, including in an epic “nonke” Twitter rant in 2016.
But the plot thickens! DJ Zinhle and DJ Euphonik have become good friends, and she was even seen rocking a “Nonke” T-shirt after the Twitter drama.
