Cape Town - "I'm sorry," says Khanyi Mbau.
In an interview with YOU Magazine
, the troubled socialite opens up about how her sister rescued her from the "evil period" in her life.
Thandeka Mcunu, Khanyi's 27-year-old sister, "dropped everything" to rescue Khanyi who was on the brink of a breakdown after her relationship with 53-year-old businessman Theunis Crous ended.
Khanyi says: "I had a moment of awakening after I'd broken up with Theunis. I found one of my old scripts from Muvhango (the soapie she once starred in) and just broke down. It dawned on me I was as good as satanic.
"I would like to apologise to my family and friends. I've lost so many people because of the person I was."
Thandeka is Khanyi's manager and says she is very protective of her sister. The pair now co-own a management company.
The Lamborghini-loving socialite was recently involved in a nude photo scandal which saw provocative images of her distributed online. Read the full interview in the November 10 edition of YOU Magazine.
