Fitness fundi Nonhle Ndala wasn’t always the ‘tough cookie’ she is today.
The Bootcamp host sat down with Drum magazine where she opened up about her career, being a mom and surviving an abusive relationship.
Nonhle revealed to the mag that she will unfortunately not be returning to the show for the fourth season as she wants to focus on her 14-year-old daughter, Aurelie and her events management business.
The fitness guru, who has been in a relationship with soccer star Andile Jali for the past two years, was coy about speaking about her relationship but she did say that she doesn’t take negativity and rumours to heart.
We all know Nonhle to be this tough-as-nails woman on Bootcamp, but you’d be surprised to know that she wasn’t always like that.
Nonhle revealed that when her business started taking off the ground, her ex-husband began to get possessive, jealous and abusive.
“I was belittled in that marriage and and ended up lacking self-belief,” she told the mag.
Adding, “Once he harms you physically, it’s no longer love.”
