A wave of celebrity split in South Africa has taken over headlines this year and Minnie Dlamini and her ex ex-husband, Quinton Jones have joined the trending topics of custody battle reports.
The duo got married in 2017 and share a son, but on a rather sad note, early last year they announced they’re getting divorced after four years of marriage.
According to a report from a sources close to the couple, Minnie Dlamini has expressed concerns, about Jones her ex-husband attempting to project her incapable and unfit to be a mother to their son and even claiming her house with her name, despite never having contributed financially.
“Minnie is a hard worker and will do anything for her child, he is just bitter because she has moved on with her life and she is doing everything for their child without asking him for anything,” the source said.
TSZ Mzansi learned that their “irreconcilable and different attitudes” eventually pushed them apart.
Quinton Jones is now reportedly trying to negotiate the contract and demanding R10 000 monthly spousal support from Dlamini as well as an attempt to get custody of their only child.
A source close to the estranged couple disclosed that Minnie is challenging the prenup and is willing to go all out to fight him from exploiting her and prevent him from reaping where he did not sow.
The source also added that the media personality has a good lawyer to whom all negative intention has ever been directed.
“Can you imagine Minnie taking care of their child and also supporting him financially, she will never let it happen.
She has good lawyers on her side who will fight to make sure he doesn’t get anything.” the source says.
Citing why her marriage failed in a radio interview earlier this year, Minnie Dlamini said she failed herself because she ignored red flags. “In relationships, you always know, you know when you look back, that was a red flag or that was a red flag,” she said,
Adding that she was not the blame. “You’re either the red flag, and you’re not acknowledging it, or they are the red flag, or they have red flags, and you’re not acknowledging it,” she said.
The bitter legal battle running for a year now has left Minnie feeling overwhelmed and broken.
The dispute over custody and spousal support has added to the stress of being a single mother, and Minnie is struggling to cope with the situation,” a source close to the situation said.
Minnie is doing her best to be a good mother, and she is determined to fight for what is best for her baby.
“She is overwhelmed and frustrated with everything he has put her through and is now at her breaking point,” adds the source.
