Cape Town - In a statement released on Twitter, DJ Black Coffee (Nkosinathi Innocent Maphumulo) has addressed reports that his wife, Enhle Mbali has filed for divorce.
According to the local tabloid newspaper, Enhle filed for a protection order at the Randburg magistrate court in October against Black Coffee's sister Nomalanga Maphumulo.
In the release, which was accompanied by the caption "a statement," Black Coffee says: "After much deliberation since the story of our relationship broke in public, I wish to state that we have been trying to sort our problems amicably and in private for almost a year now and it has been the most heart breaking and challenging period. [sic]"
He adds that there are two sides to the story and that he will not discuss his private life in the public, "let alone speak ill of [his] partner or [his] in-laws."
"As Mbali has stated, our priority are to protect our children at this point. [sic]," he says.
He then proceeds to ask for privacy as the matter had been handed over the court.
The couple tied the knot during a traditional wedding ceremony in 2011 and celebrated their union with a white wedding in 2018.
City Press first reported in July that the couple were allegedly heading for divorce court, citing the DJs rumoured infidelities and meddling family members as the reason for Enhle serving her husband with divorce papers.
