Cape Town – After a chaotic 2022 for Elton Jantjies, his wife Iva Ristic and his alleged mistress, Zeenat Simjee, Elton and Iva will reportedly be spending their last Christmas together as a married couple, with divorce proceedings set to take place in the new year.
Speaking to The South African, Iva reportedly confirmed that the couple’s divorce is set to be finalised after the festive season.
Despite all the drama that the pair had endured in the latter part of 2022, Iva said that they will be parting ways with one another “on great terms” which suggests the pair can still be friends and work towards raising their kids together as co-parents.
The publisher further reported that Iva said she is proud of how the couple was able to maintain a friendship while going through such a difficult period.

“Elton is doing really well. We are on great terms though we talk every day. I am still his biggest supporter, and he is mine,” Iva was quoted as saying.
“I am honestly proud of us for managing to keep the friendship going.
“Yes, [we are] going formalize our divorce very soon. It’s been a chaotic period for both of us moving countries, but after the holidays will definitely focus more on that,” she reportedly added.
Jantjies, who is currently playing his rugby out in France and will be looking to reignite his career with good performances and no off-field drama, will have to spend Christmas away from his family.
Iva reportedly stated that she plans on spending the holidays with her kids and her family in Turkey this year.
“It’s been such a dream living here. I need to pinch myself sometimes to make sure it’s all real,” she was quoted as saying.
