Mthiyane apparently fell-in-love with Seiphemo after their characters; Tau and Zitha were in a romantic relationship a few years on the show. The two made it official two years ago when they were seen at numerous events together. Mthiyane was against making their relationship public at first because of her previous tumorous relationships with her baby-daddies; Robert Marawa and Lebo M Morake.
Mthiyane called it quits because Rapulana was allegedly unfaithful to her. Mthiyane has apparently been having a terrible time on set since their break and has been arriving drunk and sometimes tipsy on set. Mthiyane was arrested last year when she was caught drinking and driving and was released on bail.
Mthiyane has admitted in several interviews that she suffers from anxiety disorder and sources say she also has drinking problems. While her bosses and fans admire her work, there are sources who claim that she could soon find herself unemployed if she doesn’t shape up because she’s not handling the break-up well.
Sources also claim that the real reason Rapulana moved to Mzansi Magic’s number one show; The Queen was because he needed a break from Mthiyane and couldn’t handle the heat between them anymore.
Mthiyane apparently had her hopes high on their relationship because they had a great connection on-set, behind the scenes and they were good friends.
She was apparently given some time off work so she can compose herself and get back to her old self. Rapulana is apparently a notorious womanizer in the industry and this may be one of the reasons that led to his wife divorcing him.
Apparently, some of Mthiyane’s friends warned her against dating Rapulana but Mthiyane listened to her heart instead of her head and some are now laughing behind her back for even dating him in the first place.
