Lion King Producer Lebo M Facing Divorce After Fifth Failed Marriage
Lion King producer Lebohang Morake, popularly known as Lebo M, is set to appear in divorce court for the fifth time as he prepares to file for divorce from his wife, Pretty Samuels-Morake.
Morake Keeps Reasons for Divorce Private
According to a statement released by his management on Tuesday, Lebo M will not be addressing the speculations surrounding the reasons for the marriage’s breakdown. He considers the matter to be private and personal and has no intention of engaging in salacious allegations or gossip about his personal life.
A History of Failed Marriages
Lebo M has a history of multiple marriages that have ended in divorce. His first marriage was to Viveca Gipson, which lasted five years. Following their divorce, he married Nandi Ndlovu, with whom he stayed for 11 years before divorcing again. He then tied the knot with Angela Ngani-Casara for five years from 2008 to 2013, but their marriage also ended in divorce. After a brief engagement with Zoe Mthiyane, the relationship came to an end in 2016. Lebo M later remarried his third wife, Ngani-Casara, but they divorced again in 2017. Finally, in April 2021, he got engaged to Pretty Samuels-Morake, the woman he is now divorcing.
Dispute with Samuels-Morake and Accusations Against Mthiyane
In 2022, there were reports of tensions between Lebo M and Samuels-Morake. The situation escalated when Samuels-Morake made public accusations against television actress Zoe Mthiyane. Samuels-Morake alleged that Mthiyane was dishonest and an absent mother to their child, whom Lebo M had custody of since December 2018. The breakup between Lebo M and Mthiyane occurred when their child was just nine months old in April 2016, and Lebo M claimed that he continued to care for the child and his eldest son in Blair Athol, Lanseria, Johannesburg.
Lebo M Moving Forward with the Divorce
Despite the controversies and challenges, Lebo M remains resolute in pursuing the divorce from Pretty Samuels-Morake. He has already instructed his attorneys to proceed with the legal process.
