Kgomotso Christopher rubbishes those 'anorexia' rumours

2015-03-13 12:07


It's been just over two years since Kgomotso Christopher found herself making headlines for being "too thin."

Even though the storm has long since passed and Kgomotso never really let those accusations bother her, she's learnt some very valuable lessons from the experience.

Just to refresh your memory it was in 2012 and Kgomotso had just returned from the US, when a string of rumours surfaced that she apparently had an eating-disorder and people accused her of being anorexic.

The charismatic Isidingo actress told The Juice that during the entire debacle, it was her family who kept her grounded.

"It did hurt my family, but they were the people who have kept me grounded all these years. Even when those rumours surfaced my parents told me not to worry about it, because I had always been an incredibly thin child," she explained.

Kgomotso added that as family it didn't bother them at all because they knew her when the cameras were off.

"At the time, I told everyone not to focus on whether I'm thin or fat but to focus on my work," she said.

Kgomotso added that this is the motto she's built her career on and has stood by all these years.

Kgomotso seems to have stumbled upon the recipe for success because look at her now!
