In 2012, the now defunct heat magazine reported that Katlego‚ who was in a relationship at the time‚ had snogged fellow TV presenter Lorna Maseko.
Lorna was married when the incident occurred.
At the time‚ he downplayed the reports‚ saying that it wasn’t a big deal. Now‚ speaking to Gareth Cliff on‚ Katlego opened up about what happened.
“It’s a simple thing where I was kissing someone I wasn’t meant to be kissing at the time."
When asked if that person was someone’s wife‚ he said: “I don’t know that for sure. What happened is‚ we went to the horse races‚ and we were altogether as a group of friends‚ and we had a couple of drinks and it was great. Later on in the night‚ there was a vibe. You know when there a vibe‚ it’s just instantaneous. You look into each other’s eyes and we snogged.”
There was speculation that the two headed to the same hotel room‚ but Katlego denied this.
“It’s just kissing‚ that’s all we did. Nothing happened from there.”
Kat says that he is now single and he has neglected his love life because of his tight schedule.
“I think I’ve gotten to this stage of my life where I realise I’m ready for a proper relationship‚ one that can actually be long-lasting. My biggest excuse for the past couple of years has just been‚ ‘I work too hard’‚ and I find it unfair for me to be so dedicated to my work‚ but I can’t give the same sort of dedication to someone who loves me and who wants to be with me.”
The TV personality also explained that although he’s primed for romance‚ he’s not actively on the hunt.
“I’m just kind of letting it happen. I’ve put it out there in the universe…”
He described his idea girl as someone: “that you can take to your mom and be proud of‚ one who’s been raised in a good family.”
