After being together for four years, she finally divorced him in 1996.
She got married for the second time to Sfiso Khoza in 2009.
Seeing her moving on in life, her ex-husband lost his temper and attempted to kill her by shooting in the leg and back of her head.
Luckily, she survived the horrifying incident. There were no severe injuries other than some minor damages to her nostril.
When her son confronted him over the incident, he again threatened him to move to LA; otherwise, he might have to face the same situation as his mother.
