Actor Khaya Dladla reveals the truth behind break-up with ex-fiancé Mercutio Buthelezi
South African actor and media personality, Khaya Dladla has opened up about the reason behind his split with his ex-fiancé, businessman Mercutio Buthelezi. In a recent interview with Engineer Your Life with Lungelo KM, Khaya revealed that he was trying to create a relationship that didn’t exist.
Khaya admitted that he was in a show where many people were acting, and he didn’t even realize it. He said, “There were so many red flags, but I wanted to constantly paint them pink because of the idea of a relationship I thought I was in versus what I was really in. I still wonder how many of us were in this relationship, because I now know we’re so many of us. I even lost count.”
The pair got engaged in 2020 at a surprise party in front of their family and friends. Khaya shared the news on his Instagram account, with a snap of himself and his fiancé sporting a gorgeous ring. Mercutio expressed how happy he was that Khaya said “Yes”.
