I couldn't even trust my own mother- Sonia Sedibe


Her life has been marred by a lot of drama and even health problems over the past one and a half to two years. Now for the first time former Generations actress Sonia Sedibe opens up about that challenging time in her life. Speaking to True Love magazine Sonia said there was a time during her divorce and assault drama with her helper Noleen that she started to have trust issues because all her private matters were somehow ending up in the media.

"I couldn't trust anyone, not even my own mother. Yes, I was getting divorced and my husband and I were talking about the settlement, but those things would end up in the papers. So I wasn't sure who was leaking the information," she told True Love. Sonia speaks candidly about the time she suffered a stroke on the day she had her son's birthday party saying she lost her mind during that time.

The actress whose marriage to business man Leslie Sedibe lasted 7 years and despite some media claims that she married Leslie for his money Sonia said that is not the case. "I paid for my traditional wedding. I booked Moyo's and paid everything off. I invited 1000 guests and it was a beautiful wedding," Sonia says in True Love. She also says that their marriage was 50/50 in everything.

The couple's divorce was finalized in 2014 and they share three children including a boy from Sonia's previous relationship. Efforts to get a comment from Sonia by DRUM were fruitless as she preferred not to engage with us.
