SuperSport Host Lindiwe Dube Announces Divorce After One Year of Marriage

Rumors and Confirmations: Lindiwe Dube Opens Up About Divorce
In a post, Lindiwe Dube expressed gratitude for the birth of her son and the strength to leave her toxic marriage behind. She wrote:
Two things I’m grateful for this year. The birth of my son [and] the courage to leave my toxic marriage.
Lindiwe acknowledged the divorce but chose not to delve into details, stating,
“Yes, I am going through a divorce. That’s all I can say.”
Rumours about their separation began to circulate when Lindiwe was seen without her wedding ring, and she even changed her last name from Nxumalo to Dube. A colleague at SuperSport, who wished to remain anonymous, said,
“I knew something was wrong when I saw her starting to use the Dube surname rather than Nxumalo, even on her social pages. Now with her recent rants on her social pages, I think they’re heading for a divorce soon.”
Another source shared that the couple frequently clashed over their social lives, and at one point, the situation deteriorated to the point where Lindiwe returned to her parents’ home in Daveyton, east of Johannesburg.
“Their marriage was filled with nothing but sorrow, as they were continuously at loggerheads about their social lives as a married couple. At some point, she even went back to her parents’ house in Daveyton [east of Johannesburg],” the source told Sunday World.
Support and Backlash: Celeb Friends Rally Behind Lindiwe
Minnie Dlamini, a former SuperSport colleague who recently divorced her husband Quinton Jones after four years of marriage, extended her support and love to Lindiwe with a heartfelt “we love you” comment on the same social media platform. However, Lindiwe eventually disabled the comments section as negative comments flooded her post, with some social media users accusing her of being the toxic one.
