Itumeleng Khune on backlash about his new bae: 'My life, my decisions'


Cape Town -  Itumeleng Khune is in the news again and no, it’s not for his soccer skills – it’s about yet another woman in his life.

The Bafana Bafana goal keeper recently posted a picture with a mystery woman on his Instagram page. This sent fans into a frenzy as many of them believed that he was still with Sbahle Mpisane – or at least laying low while he heals from their break up.

Earlier this year, fitness influencer Sbahle Mpisane hinted that she’s no longer in a relationship with the soccer star after she came out of her coma following a horrific car accident last year in Durban.

Now, Itumeleng seems to have confirmed this by posting a series of pictures with the new woman in his life.

He posted a picture of himself and the woman in onesies by the pool which was followed by a selfie of himself with his alleged bae.


Some fans took to Twitter to comment on the pictures – some being glad that he’s moved on while others criticised him for moving on too fast from his ex-girlfriend.


Itumeleng, however, wasn’t staying quiet for this one and promptly tweeted,


He followed that tweet with,

“My life, my decisions,” signing it off with a wink emoji.

Numerous attempts by Move! to contact Itumeleng were not responded to at the time of publishing.
