Uzalo actor Khaya Dladla has a very uncommon rule when it comes to dating your friend’s ex.

Khaya says friends who believe in the unspoken rule of never dating a friend’s ex show how selfish human beings can be.

“I have this particular stance on a matter that always brings heated debate at my house, and even on the show. The issue of dating a friend’s ex, people always make it too deep. It really isn’t and it reminds me of just how selfish human beings can be,” he said.

“I mean, if you don’t want this partner of yours, why shouldn’t the other people have him or her? What if my happiness is in my best friend’s ex? Maybe I am meant to meet my future husband through my friend.”
