Johannesburg - Actress Sonia Sedibe has lifted the lid on reports that she got divorced because she has gay friends.

It was claimed that one of the reasons for Sonia's highly publicised divorce from ex-hubby Leslie Sedibe was that he just didn't like the company she kept, especially her gay friends.

Sonia has been largely silent on the divorce, but confirmed in a social media post on Sunday that her support for her 'alternative friends' was a wedge in the marriage.

"Anyone who knows me knows that I'm sooo into my "alternative friends" I mean I lost a marriage over it??," she wrote. "I support anyone and everyone who chooses and stands by who they are and who they love...having a super liberal mother that I have, at the age of 18 my mom attracted all the township alternative kids around, they looved her "Mama Zandi" they used to call her....." she adds.

Talking about Bruce Jenner's transition, Sonia says she has always been accepting. "I must say I didn't get it at first but I guess I'm my mother's child, soon our home was housing one gay person after another. And they've been in my life ever since."

Maybe Sonia can get her friend Vivica Fox to put in a word for her to have lunch with Bruce Jenner?
