Viewers saw Zodwa breaking up with her boyfriend. However, she confirmed that it was only a stunt.
“We were shooting a reality show so we make so many stunts trying to teach that you should get help in case something doesn’t go well or right. Remember in the reality show I teach rawness about me, I’m the example. I never went to court there’s no break-up that happened. We never broke up.
“I will say our relationship is still the same since day one because we’ve been always together, supporting each other, outgoing, having fun, clubbing and all those things and I’ve also started shooting a movie. She’s been supporting me through my journey and basically being there for me. Acting came naturally to me, but I’ve been auditioning and attending drama classes. It comes with a good side, and also the bad side with it but also the bad side I’m just OK with it now,” Zodwa said.
The reality TV star and exotic dance also opened up about the 11 abortions she has had during her lifetime on one episode of Zodwa Wabantu Uncensored.
During a chat, while shopping, the dancer opened up about her abortions.
“So, me to you… The number of abortions I’ve done in my entire life are about 11,” Zodwa said.
Her revelation received mixed reactions.
