The publication reports that the delay is caused by the multi-million of Rands in cash, movable and immovable assets that the couple has to split as they were married in community of property.

“Shauwn can appear with all the celebs at parties and say what she wants, she is still Mrs Mpisane. Ask her to show you her divorce decree and where she got it, then I will buy you the most expensive car you can find in the world,” the source was quoted as saying.
