TV STAR Tumisho Masha’s marriage to his wife Zozibini is said to be over.

Trouble started after accusations of physical abuse last year.

But Sunday Sun has learnt that after court cases, the once-happy couple never recovered, and have now decided to call it quits.

A source close to the situation says that after the alleged abuse stories broke, things took a turn for the worse. Sunday Sun has also heard claims that the couple were living in separate areas.

A source claimed that Zozi’s mum came to Jozi to fetch her daughter, along with her grandchild.

“She told Zozi she can’t be in that environment with a new baby,” claimed the source.

But the insider also alleged the couple had been going through a lot, and have tried everything to help fix their marriage.

Said the source: “They’ve seen a marriage counsellor and both families have intervened. Even friends have tried to sit them down and talk.” Another source claimed trouble started long before their daughter was born.

“They love each other, but things got too intense and bad,” said the source.

Speaking to Sunday Sun, an emotional Tumisho said he wasn’t going to comment about his private life to protect his family.

“I’m not worried about the stories written about me. I’m more worried about the people who take them to the press. I wonder what kind of people they are,” he said.

According to another source, apparently Tumisho is still involved in his daughter’s life and wants things sorted between himself and his estranged wife. “He’s a nice guy and wants to co-parent with Zozi,” added the source.

When the SunTeam called Zozi for comment, she said she was attending her cousin’s funeral in the Eastern Cape. When the SunTeam brought up the subject of divorce, she refused to comment.
