News about television Boity Thulo's engagement to comedian Eugene Khoza suprised a lot of people especially since the two had barely been seen together. The news was broken by a Sunday newspaper. The question on people's lips was 'are the pair really engaged'?. The answer as we have now learned is, No, Boity and Eugene are not engaged or even an item.
Speaking to Sowetan Boity said she is single and not even looking. "I am not engaged at all. Eugene is a good friend of mine. I am single," the star told the paper. Eugene has not been available for comment but his partner for nine years Lerato Gaanakgomo told Sowetan she is confused by the story. Lerato says that when she asked the comedian about the story he left the house without explaining and hasn't been home since. She did say Eugene and her were on separation for a couple of months so that may be when he got 'engaged'.
"The situation between him and I is very confusing because last year... he left (the house) for a couple of months after a long fight. He cameback in December and if he is engaged, I do not know when that happened because he has been living with me since," she told the paper.
Boity started wearing what looked like an engagement ring during the Channel O Awards late last year and some of her friends say that she is engaged but she and Eugene are not ready to come out with it.
Whatever the case, this is one story that doesn't seem like it will be ending soon.
