She said she’s experienced public scrutiny around the subject and needed to talk to a therapist.
“I need a session with a therapist. To just sit down and talk about what’s happening. I have definitely been to therapy before, it scares me, I don’t like it. I don’t like to do it but I understand the value of doing it.”
She also revealed that she has has to delete her Twitter account as it had become a very toxic space for her.
The Umlilo hitmaker is busy planning her wedding to her second baby daddy, Murdah Bongz.
The wedding was made public in the first episode of season two of her reality TV show.
“Bongani and his family came to my family home to negotiate my bride price and we decided that it should be a small thing with just family and Bongani’s family.
“I just never had ambitions to get married. I never wanted it, I never felt like I was with anyone I wanted to marry, but Bongani and I spent a lot of time talking about it, thinking about what we want to do. I’m excited to be his wife. I’m excited to try something I never thought would happen for me,” said Zinhle.
