Kelly Khumalo is moving on following her public falling out with her sister Zandie and says that she is at peace with what happened between them
The sisters made headlines in February when Zandie released a statement saying that she was “divorcing” Kelly.
Zandie made the shocking announcement after Kelly distanced herself from an alleged scam involving her husband, Mhlo Gumede.
Event organiser Bhekani Ndlovu accused Mhlo of using Kelly’s name to swindle money out of people. He denied the claims.
“With all due respect, Mhlo Gumede is my sister’s husband and manager NOT my bookings manager nor part of my team, never was and never will be,” Kelly said in a statement on Instagram.
Zandie did not take kindly to her sister’s “haphazard, premature and unnecessary” post and issued a statement of her own.
She labelled Kelly “toxic” and hinted that people’s “jaws will drop” if they had to find out what’s hiding in her closet.
During a recent interview on Afternoon Express, Kelly gave an update on where she stands with her sister
“The matter has been handed over to lawyers, so it’s that bad… Honestly, I am at peace with it. I am that one woman who knows how to move on when it is time to move on, irrespective of whether you are family or not. When it is time to move on, it is time to move on,” the singer said.
The Dance Comigo hitmaker also revealed how the lockdown has affected her day-to-day life.
Production on her reality show, Life With Kelly, is currently on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic. Several other projects have also been put on ice.
“This has been crazy to begin with and we had to cancel a lot of plans. We had an album that was supposed to come out during this month, we had just released a Kelly Khumalo gin and we were shooting a reality show so we had to put a pause to all of that. And also it’s been really tough having to be at home, I’m not used to that.
“And what’s even worse we have to homeschool our kids, which has been a struggle for me and obviously kids wanting to go play outside… so we constantly have to be on our toes and remember to keep up social distancing.”
