Slee opened up about her relationship with ex-boyfriend Amazulu boss Sandile Zungu on the first episode of the third season of the reality show. She then revealed that she had left her kids behind for this relationship.

“My ex and I had been together for six years. When the break up came it was a shock for me and then three months later he was married to someone else, which then in hindsight tells me it was just a plot,” she said in a confessional.

“To be honest I’ve got good days and I’ve got very bad days,” she said to Nonku.

“I sometimes do miss him. Because in all honesty, I have invested a lot my time, my expertise, everything. Everything that I am into that man, to an extent that I even left my kids behind to be with him,” she continued.
