Kelly Khumalo and "Bae"Khaya Mthethwa

Controversial singer Kelly Khumalo shared a picture on social media that had tweeps in a fit.

The picture was taken on Sunday, and depicts Idols winner Khaya Mthethwa looking “lovingly” at Kelly Khumalo. It was captioned, “When sitting next to bae #UThando “.

The reactions were hilarious, from people begging Kelly to leave Khaya alone, others sharing condolence messages to Khaya, while others hoped to divert Kelly to either Fikile Mbalula or President Jacob Zuma.

Black twitter decided a while back that the men in Kelly’s life never have a happy ending, often using Jub Jub, Prosper and Senzo Meyiwa as a “case in point”.
