Orlando Pirates captain Oupa Manyisa and Kaizer Chiefs skipper Itumeleng Khune allegedly cheated on their partners with the same lady.
Quoting sources close to the situation, the Sunday Sun claims that Thatohatsi “Thato” Sejeng from Naledi in Soweto, ended up pregnant – with Manyisa’s child.
“But he sweet-talked her into aborting,” one source was quoted as saying.
Another source said Manyisa allegedly dated Thato for a year-and-a-half when she was a student at Boston College in Sandton.
The source claims Oupa dated Thato, although her family wanted her to stop seeing him.
“They were against the relationship because they knew Oupa was a married man,” the source told the Sunday newspaper
A third source close to both Oupa and Thato told Sunday Sun how they met.
“It was when he heard that his wife Johanna had allegedly had a one-night stand with Skeem Saam actor, Mlungisi Mathe. Oupa moved out of their home into a hotel in Jozi.
“We knew about the affair because he used to come and pick up Thato in Mondeor, south of Joburg, where she was staying. She spent nights at Oupa’s place, and was there for him when he was down and out,” the source claimed.
The sources told the Sunday Sun that Manyisa used rumours of Thato dating Khune to dump her in October last year.
“Thato was spotted at the Danish Pub in Diepkloof, Soweto, with Itu. They weren’t dating – just bonking. Oupa’s friends told him Thato was sleeping with Itu, he dumped her and changed his numbers.
“Thato is still hurting because this thing is killing her inside. No woman deserves to go through this,” the source said,” one source was quoted as saying.
When Thato was contacted for comment, she said: “My private life is private. I’m not a celebrity. So, please speak with celebrities – not me.”
Oupa refused to comment, saying: “Stop writing sh*t stories,” before he hung up the phone.
Khune could not be reached for comment, as he was in camp for their game against SuperSport.
