I no longer trust Joost - Amor

2010-05-28 09:01
Pretoria - Singer Amor Vittone has spoken to the media for the first time since she asked her husband, former Springbok captain Joost van der Westhuizen, to leave their home.

In the exclusive interview, which will appear in the latest Huisgenoot magazine, Vittone told of the reasons for her decision.

The glamour couple's marriage has been under scrutiny since last year, when Van der Westhuizen was involved in a sex video scandal. Vittone supported her husband when the story broke.

On ice

Vittone told Huisgenoot that she couldn't say whether their marriage was finally over.

"The relationship is on ice. I need space to make that decision," she told the magazine.

Vittone also said she had started to realise that she was no longer happy.

She described in detail how she had tried to save her marriage, but that the lack of trust was crucial to her decision.

"I no longer trust Joost. I have to find myself again now. My heart has to feel happy again.

"I did it for my children."

Future

Vittone said Van der Westhuizen had initially moved out for "a month or three". He was currently living at a friend's house and had only taken clothes.

Their two children, Jordan, 6, and Kylie, 4, are still living with her in their home on the Dainfern Estate in Johannesburg.

"I don't know what will happen in the future," said Amor. "I live in a cloud. I can't yet see tomorrow."
