In November 2013, Donnalee and businessman Gerber via a joint press statement officially announced that they were divorced. The actress – who used to play Annelie in 7de Laan – at the time explained that she and Gerber married very young, and that they unfortunately grew apart

The couple married in 2010, and the actress insists that the split was amicable and that they are still friends.

Much controversy surrounded Donnalee’s relationship with on-screen 7de Laan boyfriend Ivan Botha, though, with rumours circulating that they were more than just friends, and that an affair was the reason behind her divorce. But both Donnalee and Ivan to this day deny that there was ever anything romantic between them.

However, Netwerk24 reports that Gerber’s new wife, Minette Scheepers, on 8 November 2014, announced on Facebook that it was her and Gerber’s one-year anniversary, which suggests that he was already in a new relationship before they announced their divorce on 14 November 2013

Both Minette and Gerber have shared photos of their wedding day on Facebook.
