Cape Town – South African media personality Dineo Ranaka recently revealed shocking details about how her marriage to the father of her youngest child ended.
Speaking on MacG’s Podcast And Chill show, Dineo said that her last marriage, in which she had her third baby, ended abruptly due to “abuse”.
“If that guy didn’t hit me in my marriage, then we would still be on good terms…. I had my three-month-old baby in my arms the last time he hit me and I was like no, this is not how it’s going to go down. Not me who doesn’t submit to bullshit.
“He was like ‘nah you always say that in interviews because you trying to prove to people,’ and I’m like ‘no, I actually don’t say those things in interviews because I’m trying to prove to people that I’m a unique type of woman. Really, I don’t submit to bull, and hitting me is bull and I’m not going to submit’ and we got divorced. I’m not even lying about it, said Dineo.

Dineo further revealed that if she had not filed for divorce from her unnamed ex-husband who was also cheating on her, she would have also cheated on him.
“Yeah, he cheated on me. If I was still in that marriage, I’d be planning to cheat on him too, we discussed it and he knows this.
“I’d be like, ‘for now, since I’ve given birth you’re the only person cheating in this relationship and this marriage. I think ngizophola (I’ll chill) but when my caesarian scars get better ke tlogo febela o hlanya wena [I’ll cheat on you and you’ll regret it.], said Dineo.
Dineo encouraged people in similar situations to not feel shame and be open about what they were going through.
