Despite having more than two decades in the limelight, little is known about her love life. Well, of interest is that despite being one of Mzansi’s finest, she hasn’t lived the life of glitz and glamour on the public scene. She has managed to keep her private life under wraps for her entire acting career and left us to connect the dots.
However, in the mix of things, she was once implicated in a daring relationship with business mogul and South African billionaire Patrice Motsepe.
Patrice Motsepe is said to be her baby daddy, but these allegations are baseless and defamatory. Both parties have since let it slide and distance themselves from the drama.

Despite being said, one of the most paid actresses in Mzansi knows where her house is located, and she hasn’t been spotted driving any fancy exotic cars. In one of her interviews with the Drum, she opened up about why she keeps her private life under wraps.
“I do not hang out with fans, only with my close family and friends. If I am with fans, I know I am working, and I am not there to let my hair loose. Fans want to take pictures and share them. I sell my work and not my life, so it is easy for me to differentiate between what is for public consumption and what isn’t.
“My private life is private, and it is not for everyone to delve into. So I hang out with people I know, and they know me. Out of their own will, they have an added layer of consideration because of understanding what I do and what it means to be in the public eye constantly,” she says.
“They are not about proving proximity or anything like that. I am truly surrounded by people who care about me, and they also cover me,” she adds.
