That's because his wife, who accuses Gumbi of moering her, has thrown the actor out of his luxury home.
The lanky thespian has allegedly gone back to his parental home in Soweto, where he is sleeping like an okapi.
Gumbi could not be reached for comment at the time of going to press - his cellphone was constantly off and his colleagues at The Bomb Shelter production house also had a hard time locating him for us.
His wife declined to comment.
"I'm not ready to talk to you about that at this stage, please talk to him," she said.
But the couple's relatives, who did not want to be named because they did not want to ruin their relationship with the warring couple, confirmed the winter cold fronts had been playing games with Gumbi.
"She obtained a protection order against him after he beat her up," one of the relatives said.
"We understand the order says he shouldn't enter their home in Fourways."
The kin also said Gumbi has been ordered by the court to appear before a magistrate and oppose the wife's order or forever stay out of their home.
Another relative confirmed the two have separated after the wife obtained a restraining order against the actor last week.
The relatives said his wife obtained the protection order after opening a case of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm (GBH) against Gumbi at the Douglasdale police station last month.
This was after he allegedly punched, kicked and dragged her on the floor of their apartment following an argument.
"This man beats her up every time they have a little misunderstanding," the source said. "He has been doing this for the past two years."
The wife is said to be scared that she will die at the hands of Gumbi . "S he can't even wear a short dress because she has a lot of scars on her thighs and legs."
