The news came after much speculation when the mom of one and stepmother of six started posting pictures on social media not wearing her wedding ring.

The founder and executive chairman of Gem (Gunguluza Enterprises and Media) has since come forward to clear the air and set the record straight.

“There has been a lot of speculation around our marriage and separation,” Lebo wrote on Instagram.

“Yes, we have been separated for almost a year now, and our divorce is almost finalised.”

The couple parted on good terms.

“We remain good friends and co-parents to our son. I hope this brings clarity to speculation,” Lebo added.

At the time of publishing, Lebo Mokoena hadn’t responded to Drum’s calls for comment.

In 2017, the Gunguluzas hosted their traditional wedding and in 2018, they flew off to Mauritius for their lavish white wedding celebration overlooking snow-white beaches and swaying coconut palms.

Over 100 guests from South Africa attended, including celebrities Thembi Seete and partner Collen Mashawana, and Cashflow Ngcobo. The weekend-long celebration looked like the beginning of a perfect union, and the wedding made headlines across the country.
