2018 showed these celebrity couples flames in 2018. Long-lasting relationships and famous couples don’t seem to go well together

The pressure of being in the spotlight, busy schedules and egos often lead to A-list couples butting heads.

Stars like Connie and Shona Ferguson, who have been married for 17 years, make it look easy, but celebrity romances aren’t also as picture perfect as they seem.

Here’s a look at some of the most shocking break-ups of the year


ProVerb and Liesl

Idols SA presenter ProVerb and his beauty queen girlfriend Liesl Laurie were one of South Africa’s most loved celebrity couples. They posted cute pictures of each other on Instagram and travelled the world together. Their perfect romance came to a crashing end in October.

Fans noticed the couple, who have been dating since 2016, not only stopped sharing lovey-dovey images, but they also deleted almost all their old pictures. They are yet to talk about their split but it is seems like a done deal at this point.

Thando and Frans

Thando Thabethe and Frans Mashao were set to walk down the aisle after getting engaged in July 2017. However, by June 2018, Thando had stopped wearing her ring. Rumours were rife that Frans cheated but Thando has remained mum on their break-up.

“I don’t think I need to go into the nitty-gritties… I never denied that we are not engaged anymore. I don’t think I need to tell people the reasons behind why it ended,” she told Azania on Real Talk. Guess we will never know what ended this once happy relationship.
