With the recent news of Bonang Matheba and AKA’s split- we could have never guessed that the next celebrity couple to follow suit would be television darling Khanyi Mbau and her long-time boyfriend Tebogo Lerole.

The self-proclaimed ‘Queen of Bling’ revealed the shocking news on her Instagram page yesterday. With a long heart-felt caption that left many reeling.

when Love is not enough? WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN?? Today.. I made peace with a battle that I have lost, i have accepted defeat. My greatest fear and my greatest loss.. letting go of the man I gave my heart too @edwardbillion it has taken so much from me in convincing my self that I am OKAY? Today I chose to face my fears and accept my truth. Today I let go of my greatest pain, LOVE IS PAIN .. for a while now I have been so insecure, so bitter and lonely, AS the wise WOULD say everything has a season!! THE HELL!!, ??WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN?? ??My Summer has gone. My first ever experience of being truly in love and being fearless but the very same love has made so small and so sore inside. I have lost me .. today I let go of my future plans, the man I saw as the father of my kids and my future husband.. love of my life.. my best friend!! ??I am afraid , I am so afraid but I am going to learn how to love me genuinely first before I try and love again. Lord give me strength????. #BROKEN #single #afraid #scared ?? ??
