This is not the first time Thuli has been associated with a fellow celebrity.
In August the DJ shut down rumours that she was dating Master KG.
It all started on Twitter when Thuli was spotted replying to the award-winning and international sensation’s tweets about dating older women.
After asking his followers if this is an acceptable thing to do, Thuli responded by saying “Bathong nana, of course!”
Twitter users quickly assumed that Thuli and Master KG are a couple.
Thuli was not having any of it.
“Apparently, I’m dating Master KG because I commented on his tweet! Guys, please respect me!” she wrote.
She went on to clarify that even though she loves the musician, the two are not a couple and are just friends.
Last year the actress responded to rumours that she was dating Duduzane Zuma.
The star hit back at the rumours, saying she does not know the businessman and son of former president Jacob Zuma.
Thuli set the record straight on Twitter after one user said Duduzane's denial of the pair's relationship in an interview with MacG was suspicious.
In the interview on Podcast and Chill with MacG, Duduzane denied knowing Thuli, saying he is used to rumours being spread about him and that he has never met her.
The actress and DJ replied to the Twitter user, saying she has never met Duduzane who is married to Shanice Stork.
