Shoki took to sleeping with a knife under her pillow.

Celebrity power couple Sello and Shoki Sebotsane seemed to have it all- looks, success, two gorgeous kids and fairytale romance. But it seems all that glitters isn't gold as DRUM exclusively sat down with Shoki who revealed that the couple's 10 year marriage was very far from perfect.

"I fought so hard to be idolised (by the public) I had to give us a false life just because I wanted the world to see us in a certain way," the Skeem Saam actress tell DRUM in an exclusive interview.

Shoki reveals that from day one there was tension in their marriage. She relates of a point when the couple slept in separate bedrooms and she took to sleeping with a knife under her pillow in case she needed to defend herself in the middle of the night.

"He would drag me out of a work event because he thought some guy was eyeing me," Shoki says.

"I stayed in the marriage because I thought he loved me," shoki adds.
