Controversial SABC sports presenter Walter Mokoena's marriage to model Pearl Thusi is on the rocks.
Thusi, a former princess in Miss Teen SA, is the mother of Mokoena's child Thandolwethu.
A friend of the couple has told Sowetan that Thusi was suing for divorce.
He said the model was upset that her husband was spending very little time with her and their daughter.
"She has been complaining about Mokoena spending time on his various work commitments and has accused him of having a roving eye for women," the source said.
He said Thusi was also unhappy about Mokoena's unwillingness to go public about their marriage. The couple were living separate lives and the beautiful model had tried to keep a straight face about the situation because she is embarrassed that her marriage is going down.
"Pearl has had it. Walter is bullying her around and she has had enough. They were always arguing about his domineering behaviour," said the source.
Thusi could not be reached for comment but Mokoena denied that he was divorcing.
"This is a street corner rumour. I have no issues with my wife.
"I am not divorcing. Whoever told you this is a liar."
However, after making the comment, Mokoena asked Sowetan: "Who told you I was actually married in the first place?"
