Soccer star, Teko has reportedly found love in the arms of television personality, Mbali Nkosi!
Teko and Mbali have spotted in numerous places, including the recent Mercedes- Benz Fashion Week in Sandton.
According to a source close to the situation, Teko is head over heels in love with Mbali. The feeling is mutual, and Teko is apparently having a hard time keeping their relationship under wraps.
The source further tells Move! that the relationship has not sat comfortably with his ex-fiancé, sexy socialite, Lizelle Tabane. The two, who had a toxic public relationship, broke up last year amidst rumours that Lizelle cheated on Teko.
Trouble apparently began when Lizelle started having secret telephonic conversations and sending romantic text messages to the father of her son, who is another popular soccer player.
The alleged cheating happened barely two months after Teko showered Lizelle with a luxurious car that previously belonged to his ex wife, Felicia Modise. So angry was Teko at Lizelle, that he took the car back and gave Lizelle marching orders from his posh home in Ruimsig.
He also sent a delegation to her family in Bethanie, North West, to claim back the R20 000 he paid for her lobola.
Lizelle then went on to accuse the Sundowns player of being emotionally and physically abusive.
Observers of the relationship between Teko and Mbali believe that he could be on the rebound.
Last year, Teko and Lizelle tried to revive their relationship but failed dismally. Teko also tried to make peace with Felicia, with whom he has a child. Felicia and Teko broke up in 2011 in an ugly war that saw the couple air their dirty laundry in public.
Their divorce also saw Felicia being forced to move back to her grandmother’s home in Evaton with the couple’s child, but she now stays in the leafy surburb of Noordheuwel in Krugersdorp. The Diski Divas reality star was also linked to kwaito star, Ishmael Morabe.
Ishmael told Move! that personality clashes led to their break up. Efforts to get hold of Teko were unsuccessful. His manager, Jazzman Mahlakgane, declined to comment and said he only deals with Teko’s career enquiries. He later gave us Teko’s number but it went on voicemail. Efforts to get hold of Mbali also drew a blank. Her phone was also on voicemail.
