Big Brother Mzansi (BBM) season three winner Mphowabadimo, real name Michele Dimpho Mvundla, is reportedly broke and has moved back home after her split from Themba Broly Mabaso, gossip account Maphephandaba reports.
Last week, the sangoma shared an update on her relationship status, saying she is now single. Mphowabadimo broke the news in a video circulating on social media.
“I’m moving out because of personal reasons, so I had started – okay, I’m moving out because I’m pregnant, and the steps are just hell and, secondly, I’m single again, so this place has become a keeper of memories I want to leave behind,” she said.
This comes after allegations that Themba, who is also a musician, has been cheating on Mphowabadimo with the mother of his two children, Nqobile Khuzwayo. Mphowabadimo has one son from her previous relationship. She and Themba are expecting their first child together.
Mphowabadimo is alleged to have blown up her BBM money on Themba.
A source told Maphephandaba that she has moved back home because she is allegedly broke. In addition, their traditional wedding, which allegedly took place in December last year, was all a lie.
“Mphowabadimo lied about being married to Themba. They are not married. Themba was already exposed being married to Nqobile from BBM but Mpho came out and saw that Themba is big outside and decided to persue him.
“She bribed him with money and gifts to secure the relationship. Themba wanted to marry her in a community of property on condition that she buys a home for them. Her family refused to have the house as a joint bond,” the source alleged.
The source also claimed that Mphowabadimo has been abusive towards Themba and she got pregnant to prevent him from leaving her.
“She has been physically abusive to him for months. She has been blackmailing him to stay in the relationship for months. When he didn’t abide by the manipulative tactics, she went for his career.
She got pregnant thinking he will tolerate her for the baby’s sake and she lost that fight. She is now broke and can hardly afford even airtime. Hence she is going back home,” the source claimed.
