Elton Jantjies’s ex-wife, Iva Ristic, has gone Instagram official with her new relationship – and her followers are happy for her!

The former Springbok WAG separated from the rugby player after he confessed to having an affair with team dietician Zeenat Simjee.

The couple wed in 2019 and shared three children together.

IVA RISTIC GOES IG OFFICIAL WITH NEW BAE

In an Instagram post on Sunday, 2 June, Iva Ristic shared a picture of the new man in her life.

“When I count my blessings, I count him twice,” she captioned the image of the mystery man kissing her on the cheek.

The post was liked by hundreds of followers, including Rachel Kolisi, who is the wife of Springbok captain Siya Kolisi. Siya and Elton Jantjies played alongside each other for the national team, particularly in the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Under the post, many followers expressed their joy that Iva – who now lives in Turkey –  had found happiness again.

“You deserve to be loved like that,” read many comments.

According to Iva Ristic, Elton Jantjies allegedly began his affair with Zeenat Simjee soon after she joined the Springboks in 2019.

Elton and Iva tied the knot in a low-key ceremony just weeks before the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Zeenat has repeatedly denied the allegations.

HAS ELTON JANTJIES SIGNED THE DIVORCE PAPERS?

In September last year, Iva Ristic told The South African that she was still legally married to Elton Jantjies, whom she claimed had “refused” to sign their divorce papers. 

The model and DJ – who now uses her maiden name – added that Elton had also given her the impression that he still wanted to work on their marriage.

She said at the time: “He asked me to be patient. 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. He is still unwilling to sign the paperwork”.

At the time, Elton had pursued a relationship with TV personality Ashleigh Ogle, who had moved into the rugby player’s marital home. The romance was shortlived, however, after Ashleigh accused Elton of domestic abuse and taking drugs.

The South African reached out to Iva Ristic for an update. None was received at the time of publishing.  Meanwhile, Elton Jantjies has made it clear that he will not respond to inquiries about his personal life.
