The couple formally parted ways in August, scotching long-simmering rumours that they were trying to resuscitate their marriage.

The couple was believed to have separated in 2007 after revelations that Hlomla, the star of ‘End Game’ and ‘Jacobâ??s Cross’, fathered three children out of wedlock with former Miss City Press Nkele Motsomi, air hostess Sisanda Gqirhana and media personality Brenda Nyakudya

Hlomla, the star of ‘End Game’ and ‘Jacob’s Cross’ and also known for his role as mine manager Derek Nyati in ‘Isidingo’, confirmed that their marriage had broken down.

“Yes it’s true [that we are no longer together]. It’s common knowledge that Candida and I split a while back. Our divorce has been finalised and she has not been my wife for some years now,” he said in a statement.

“When I fathered my children, we had already separated. It is false that I fathered the children while I was with Candida,” he added.

He refused to reveal the reasons behind their break-up, saying only: “As with any divorce, it is the inability to find common ground.”

Hlomla also said he had moved on and was seeing another woman, but declined to reveal any details

“I would rather not share her name. I can say that she has been a light in my life and has been fantastic with the children. So much so that the children asked me [unsolicited] whether they can call her mum too…” he said.

A family friend, speaking on condition of anonymity, told City Press: “Hlomla has granted Candy custody and they have arranged visitation rights.”

Meanwhile, Hlomla also revealed on Twitter that one of the mothers of his children is suing him for child maintenance

Breaking the news on Twitter, Hlomla wrote: “I just learnt I’m being sued for child maintenance. She’ll hv to do better than accuse me of not taking care of my kids. Ugejile this time.”

He later added: “I’ll do anything for my children. But when u use them to extort ridiculous amounts from me and take me to the papers in the process #Ugejil.”
