Actress and DJ Thuli Phongolo’s love life has come under the microscope again.

It all started when the former “Generations: The Legacy” actress posted a comment on X, where she basically confirmed being single.

She said: “When you’re single but everyone still thinks you’re dating your ex … I hate that mess. Count me out. 😒.”

However, Phongolo’s situationship is messy. And netizens were not afraid to call her out.

Phongolo dated one of South Africa's finest record producers, DJ Maphorisa, for a while. Their relationship turned sour last year when Phongolo charged the DJ with assault.

She claimed that the “Hello” hitmaker hit her with open hands and strangled her after she confronted him about an issue.

Maphorisa was arrested and later granted R4 000 bail. Soon after that, Phongolo filed a withdrawal statement before the court.

Since then the pair have been seen together multiple times in public and, in February, they even teamed up to play a set at Vetkoek vs Mahoota’s party.

Social media users at that point decided that it’s best to stay out of their business but Phongolo is making it rather hard for them to do that.

Since her last post, interest has yet again piqued as to what is going on with the two.

Here are some of the comments online.
