After months of drama involving Sonia and her husband Leslie Sedibe, the couple is now officially living apart. Sonia moved out of the couple's northern suburb mansion about a month ago. "I am divorced. When your marriage is over, you are supposed to find a place to stay. That happens all the time," Sonia told Sowetan newspaper on her leaving their matrimonial home.
The actress said that though she and Leslie are divorced they are good and on speaking terms. The couple got married in 2006 and have two children.
