Rumours of Gugu Khathi and musician DJ Tira getting divorced began circulating online after the SAMAs last weekend.   

Khathi set the record straight in an interview with TshisaLive on Wednesday, 31 August.   

“We are still fine, we are still happy. I don’t know where they’d get that from. Maybe it was because I was late for the SAMAs. There is nothing there. I don’t think we have issues that could be putting us in a situation where we’re even considering [divorce]. So, no.” she said.  

“I don’t know what they thought they saw, but I bet it was because I was late at the SAMAs and someone spotted something.”  

Khathi also rubbished infidelity rumours in her marriage and said she and Tira are still going strong.   

The dancer-businesswoman and the record label manager dated for 18 years and have been married for nearly a decade.

The star also revealed in the interview that she and her husband live separate lives because of their work commitments.   

Khathi also believes that the cheating rumours began after the SAMAs weekend because she arrived late at the event on Sunday.  

“We are still very much happy in love and happily married. We’ve never stayed in the same house. I stay in Joburg, he stays in Durban and it’s always been like that. He comes to Joburg to our home where our kids are because I work in Joburg full time … we’ve always had a home in Joburg and we’ve always had homes in Durban, so nothing has changed.”
