Actor and reality TV star Mohale Motaung has reacted to the engagement rumours which were swirling on social media on Sunday, 12 November.

This is after the businessman posted images of himself sporting a wedding ring, as well as a proposal video.

No details were given about Mohale’s alleged partner, however, one X user said that the man in question is one of Gauteng’s wealthiest businessmen and doctor.

The former Adulting actor has since told TshisaLIVE that he is not engaged and neither is he in a relationship.

“People just decided to create that. I took that from someone else. The ring is there because I put it there. There isn’t a love life at all,” he said.

Mohale said the most important thing on his mind was building his brand and establishing businesses.

“I’m launching my cosmetic range on 30 November 30 and am also working on a reality show for YouTube. I will be showcasing everything I have been busy with from work and family stuff.”

Mohale was previously married to Somizi who proposed to Mohale at the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, in 2018. The pair had their traditional wedding in September 2019, followed by their lavish white wedding in January 2020 which aired on Showmax.

Speculation about the couple heading for divorce began in 2021 when Mohale sent shockwaves around the country when he made allegations of abuse against Somizi in an explosive leaked audio. In the audio, he said the abuse dated back to as early as three weeks into their relationship.

Somizi later sent a summons for divorce to Mohale, noting they were married in community property under customary law.

However, in March this year, Somizi withdrew his divorce summons against Mohale and paid his legal fees. This after the 26-year-old denied entering into a “valid customary [marriage] on 28 September 2019”.

Somizi’s legal representatives said that they obtained expert opinion clarifying the existence of the marriage that revealed “not all customs were complied with.”

Addressing the abuse claims, they said: “We know about the abuse allegations, but our client has denied all along and still denies.”
