Things seem rosy for Floyd and new squeeze

2012-06-30 18:00

It looks like the grey cloud that’s been hovering over Floyd Shivambu’s love life since his highly publicised break-up with SABC climatologist Andile Masuku, is about to turn into a rainbow.

It seems the former ANC Youth League spokesperson has found love in the tiny arms of radio personality and Kenny Kunene’s supposed ex-lover, Eda Rose.

The two recently partnered up for sports and recreation minister Fikile Mbalula’s foundation launch that took place on Thursday night at the Sandton Sun in Joburg.

And it was not the first time the couple has been seen out.

Just two weeks ago, Shivambu and the petite 23-year-old attended the Frisco Black Coffee party together, where they stayed close to each other’s side.

On Thursday night Rose and Shivambu were colour coordinated in black and grey, and acted coy when asked to pose together, which they refused to do.

Fortunately, our eagle-eyed lensman caught them in a candid moment.

But the two were certainly not shy about working the red carpet.

They left the event for a short while only to come back later for a second turn on the busy carpet.

Just a few months ago, the Shivambu/Masuku break-up saga kept tongues wagging with its soapie-style drama.

In February, Drum magazine published an article about Masuku’s pregnancy which she claimed was her second child with her then live-in lover Shivambu.

Barely a week after the Morning Live weather reporter gave birth, Shivambu went to the media to deny paternity of the second child.

The erstwhile youth league mouthpiece sent an email to the magazine denying the claims.

In the email, he wrote: “Please note it on record that I am not involved with the child she is caring (sic). I publicly acknowledged and I know of Katekani as my child.

I demand (an) immediate apology as I have nothing to do with the pregnancy of Andile Masuku.

I have forwarded the email and communicated with Andile that she must also stop spreading lies about my name (sic). I am not the father of her child and she knows that very well.”

The sordid saga came to a heartbreaking end when Masuku’s baby died two months after birth.

While Shivambu’s taken, his comrades Sindiso Magaqa and Julius Malema attended the Mbalula event solo and sat at the dateless-men table alongside Tony Yengeni.
