MINNIE DLAMINI POSING NUDE
In October last year, Minnie Dlamini was criticised after she posted pictures of her in the nude, save for a blonde wig covering her lady bits.
Many followers suggested that Quinton and his family would naturally be upset by the pics.
“We don’t really want to see a married woman nude”; “I feel sorry for her in-laws” and “Don’t forget you are Mrs Jones” were some of the comments left under the post.
OUT WITH SINGLE FRIENDS
Some fans have claimed Minnie Dlamini’s close friendship with Unathi Nkayi – who is also divorced – may have influenced her.
One tweep posted: “I knew it that umjita’s marriage is in danger and about to collapse when his wife started hanging out with people (friends) who are not married (single people & divorcee).
Another added: “I blame Unathi for Minnie Dlamini’s divorce. That woman I don’t trust her”. A third tweeted: “Most of her friends, actually all of them are single. And they are always out, you can’t be doing all of that when you are married”.
THE ‘CURSE’ OF THE REALITY TV SHOW
Minnie Dlamini would not be the first celebrity to file for divorce after starring in a wedding/marriage reality show about their life.
According to E! Entertainment, many US celebs have parted ways after inviting cameras behind closed doors. Closer to home, Somizi and Mohale also shocked Mzansi by spitting after their grand Showmax reality show Somizi and Mohale: The Union.
One tweep said: “I had the highest hopes for Minnie Dlamini and Quinton Jones. I’m now convinced that these wedding special reality shows are cursed, almost everyone who has had one is divorced or getting a divorce”.
INTROVERT VS EXTROVERT
Producer Quinton Jones may be in the entertainment business – but he is strictly behind the camera and notoriously private. The 38-year-old doesn’t even have a social media account.
Many tweeps have speculated that Minnie Dlamini’s outgoing personality clashed with Quinton’s introverted one.
One tweep said: “Minnie and Quinton were a mismatch. Guy is too chilled and private. Minnie likes the high and busy life. It wasn’t going to work out”.
Another added: “I saw it coming….Minnie entered the marriage as a celebrity and not as a makoti willing to be submissive”.
