Minnie Dlamini Spills the Beans on Her Relationship with Itumeleng Khune
Once upon a time in the land of Mzansi, there was a celebrity couple that stole everyone’s hearts. Yes, we’re talking about Minnie Dlamini and Itumeleng Khune. Rumor had it that they were this close to tying the knot back in 2014.
But hold on to your hats, folks, because Minnie is here to set the record straight. According to her, their relationship never reached that level – it was all just a bunch of hearsay.
Setting the Record Straight
In a recent chat with DJ Fresh on his YouTube podcast, “WAW! What A Week WAW,” Minnie finally spilled the tea on her relationship with the Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper. Back when they were together for three years, the rumor mill went into overdrive, claiming that Khune had dropped a cool R1 million for lobola to marry the former Homeground presenter.
But wait, there’s more! When asked about one of the biggest misconceptions about her, Minnie didn’t mince her words. She said it was the relentless rumor that Khune had ponied up for lobola. She hates it, folks, and she’s not afraid to say it. People still believe it, and it’s driving her crazy!

Putting the Rumors to Rest
This isn’t the first rodeo for Minnie when it comes to addressing these pesky rumors. In 2017, just before she tied the knot with her ex-husband Quinton Jones, she laid it all out on DJ Fresh’s radio show. She declared that no man, apart from Quinton, had ever paid lobola for her.
In her own words, “I was never, ever, ever, ever ‘lobolad’ by a soccer player in my life. It never happened. So, we can lay that to rest, please guys, it did not happen. The first time I got ‘lobolad’ was now, and I’m getting married now.” Boom, there you have it, folks, straight from the horse’s mouth!
Healing from Her Divorce
But hold on to your hats again because the drama doesn’t end there. Minnie spilled the beans on how she used her character in “The Honeymoon” to heal from her divorce. In February 2022, Minnie and Quinton sent shockwaves through their fans when they announced their divorce plans. It wasn’t an easy ride for Minnie because she felt like she was going through it all alone. No one, and she means no one, knew what was happening – not her family, not her friends.
So, she turned to her character in “The Honeymoon” as a way to heal and find herself again. It gave her the strength to fight for herself and the life she wanted. She realized that it’s essential to stop caring about what people think and not worry about other people’s opinions. After all, they’ll have their opinions no matter what you do. The real question is, are you happy with yourself and your life when you go to bed at night?
Custody Battles and Spousal Support Demands
As if that wasn’t enough drama for one story, here’s another twist – the custody battle and spousal support dispute! Minnie’s ex-husband, Quinton Jones, has allegedly demanded a monthly sum of R10,000 from her. The reason? Well, they’re allegedly in the midst of a bitter custody battle over their child.
Let’s rewind a bit. This interracial couple had us all swooning when they shared their wedding with the world in 2017. They were a picture of happiness, and they even welcomed a little bundle of joy named Netha Makhosini Jones in 2020. But by 2022, their love story had taken a different turn, and they released a joint statement about their split.
Now, they’re allegedly tangled in a custody battle, and Quinton wants a monthly financial contribution. But here’s the kicker – Minnie is ready to do whatever it takes for her child. She won’t let anyone take her child away or make her financially responsible for him. She’s lawyered up, and she’s ready to fight tooth and nail.
Cryptic Messages on Social Media
The drama doesn’t stop there. On Quinton Jones’ 40th birthday, Minnie Dlamini took to her Instagram Stories with a message that left us scratching our heads. It read, “If you’re single, have some patience. Your soulmate is almost done with those divorce papers.” Ouch, that’s one way to wish someone a happy birthday!
But wait, there’s more. In the same week, she posted another cryptic message about babies being forcibly taken from their moms. “Imagine being someone trying to take a baby away from its mother,” the post read. Shots fired!
According to insiders, Minnie is a hard worker and would do anything for her child. Quinton, on the other hand, seems to be harboring some bitterness because Minnie has moved on with her life. She’s taking care of their child without asking him for anything, and that might not sit well with him.
So there you have it, folks – the lowdown on Minnie Dlamini’s relationship rumors, divorce drama, custody battles, and cryptic social media messages. It’s safe to say that Mzansi’s beloved celebrity is no stranger to the spotlight and all the drama that comes with it. Stay tuned for the next episode of “As the Celebrity World Turns.”
