Jacques and Angelique Potgieter have seemingly moved past the social media "cheating" scandal, which played out on Instagram last week. 

The Cheetah's rugby player and his actor wife made headlines after a now-deleted Instagram post was published on Jacques' Instagram account alleging that he had cheated on his wife.

Speaking to Channel24, Jacques denied all claims of infidelity in his marriage and said that his private Instagram account had been "hacked."

Following the incident, the couple released a statement on Thursday, saying they remain "steadfastly committed to each other, our children and our marriage, despite the accusations." 

Furthermore, pouring cold water on reports of trouble in paradise, the couple posted a series of social media posts dedicated to each other.

"Weekend vibes saam die hottie, (Weekend vibes with this hottie)" Jacques posted a selfie with his wife on Saturday. In a second photo, Angelique sits on his shoulders and strikes a pose.
