I think I hated myself for loving him - Pearl

Actress, model, business woman and television and radio personality Pearl Thusi is one of Mzansi's most loved personalities, and that's mostly because people feel they can relate to her.

As bubbly and wonderful as she is, Pearl Thusi has had hard times with growing up, in particular her relationship with her father. Speaking to Pearl Modiade on SABC 1 talk show Zaziwa, Pearl opened up about how at some point she disliked her father and she and him had to be apart from each other for a while.

"I think my dad was a martyr to me. My dad could do no wrong. And suddenly I saw that he could. The type of wrong he did affected me so badly that, I think I hated myself for loving him," she said on the show.

Pearl went on to say that even though she and her dad had a bad relationship and she could barely stand him, and they argued all the time, they have mended the relationship and are now extremely close.

"What's great is how he patched it up," an emotional Pearl explained.

"We spoke after my mother passed away and we patched things," she said.

Pearl and her father are so good now, that she says he even calls her his brother because they have become so close.
