She once dated late business mogul Prosper Mkwaiwa, who proposed to her on the SABC1 show All You Need is Love in 2006, but the relationship ended. She once also tattooed her ex-boyfriend and baby daddy Jub Jub’s name on her arm.
Then she had a fairy-tale romance with murdered Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa, who passed away in 2014.
In 2016 she was rumoured to be dating a KwaZulu-Natal businessman, Zamokwakhe “Bhaka” Nzama, but that slowly fizzled out. With a colourful love life and heartbreak along the way, it’s is clear pop singer Kelly Khumalo doesn’t give up on romance.
Kelly recently told DRUM she’s no longer single and she’s even prepping for her wedding day. “I’m planning to have my wedding next year October. I have already decided on the type of dress that I would like – something very short with cowboy boots,” Kelly said.
So is it going to be a big, lavish celebration? No! Kelly says she prefers something very intimate with close friends and family. “A private wedding with about 10 people somewhere private and outside of the country is the kind of thing I prefer.”
Although she says she’ll have a party with neighbours and fans afterwards, she’s learnt to keep things private and small. When quizzed about who the lucky guy in her life might be Kelly said she can’t divulge but she’s definitely taken.
“My ass is taken, it belongs to someone – I’m not single anymore,” she says.
