SULTRY television personality Minenhle “Minnie” Dlamini is back on the dating scene after splitting from Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune, the Sunday Times reports.
The newspaper reports that Minnie has even returned the metallic-blue BMW M3 he gave her for her 21st birthday in 2011.
The 22-year-old broke the news of her split on Twitter, and invited friends to join her soon for a “single ladies’ weekend” at Sun City. She said: “Got some free time finally! Let’s do that single ladies night out before we get hectic lol #2013NewBeginnings”.
The Wild actress and former Live presenter on SABC1 had been dating Khune since they were first spotted together at a soccer match in 2010.
Rumours of a break-up have been making the rounds since November and, on December 22, a Johannesburg woman posted a picture of herself and Khune on Twitter and referred to him as “my man”.
Minnie was playing mum when asked for comment, saying: “I’m never one to discuss my private life in the media, nor have I ever confirmed or denied who I am or was dating to the media”.
Khune, who is busy training with the Bafana Bafana camp for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations tournament, hung up the phone when asked about their relationship. Further attempts to get hold of him were unsuccessful.
FYI: Minnie won't be without wheels: She has a sponsorship with Jeep.
