Springbok Elton Jantjies and his bae Ashleigh Ogle have called it quits after a short-lived romance. But according to a shocking statement, the split was on bitter terms…

The controversial rugby player – who admitted to having an extramarital affair with team dietician Zeenat Simjee last year- and the entertainer began dating in August. 

However, the new romance made headlines for all the wrong reasons after Elton’s ex, Iva Ristic, claimed they were still legally married. She also claimed that the father-of-three had moved his new girlfriend into their family home.

She shared: “I’ve decided to end my relationship & friendship with Elton Jantjies. I have endured things no woman deserves. I was deluded & chose to believe in him until numerous reliable sources brought information to my attention that could have implicated me.

She continued: “I’m now choosing to distance myself from the situation. Going forward, I will have no further contact with Mr Jantjies & wish him all the best with his future endeavors, and pray he can respect my decision and leave me, my friends, and my family alone”.

Elton Jantjies and Ashleigh Ogle were first spotted together at an event in August. The couple went Instagram official just weeks later. 

However, in an exclusive with The South African, estranged spouse Iva Ristic claimed that she was still legally married to Elton and that he had refused to sign their divorce. She also revealed that Elton and Ashleigh were living together in their house.

Iva also claims that he has given the impression that he still wants to work on their marriage.

She said: “He asked me to be patient as he is still emotionally not ready to let me go, and he is not ready to make that step. The issue is that it’s been a year since I requested a divorce, and he is still unwilling to sign the paperwork. 

Iva’s comments come shortly after Elton’s interview with MailOnline, in which he reflected on his year full of scandals on and off the pitch.

Fast forward to late October, and fans speculated that there were cracks in Elton’s new romance.
