On Wednesday, Somizi Mhlongo responded to reports that he has moved on from his estranged husband, Mohale Motaung.

Somizi and Mohale's troubled marriage made headlines in August when the Rockville actor accused Somizi of physical abuse, allegations the TV personality has "vehemently" denied.

Later, in a statement, Somizi confirmed that divorce proceedings were underway and would be finalised "fairly and reasonably".

Sharing a screenshot from an online report, claiming the former Idols SA judge has found love again with a childhood friend, Somizi wrote: "Eish no, things just got tense... i have been burdened... so im not allowed to be seen with any male... it means I'm still going to find mos some new loves... it's nice here by singlehood then... [sic]" 

Somizi went on to apologise to his friend, who was identified in the article is his "new found love", saying: "...dont worry u will be replaced soon enjoy it whilst this new love lasts lol [sic]."
