For Better Or Worse?| The Sad Story Of Babes Wodumo’s Troubled Life, Marriage And Finances
Babes Wodumo has once again grabbed headlines after the latest episode on Showmax’s Thando Lodumo – a reality series that publicly follows the marriage of her and controversial husband, Mampintsha.
The reality series has shown nothing but the sad reality of Babes Wodumo’s troubled life with her husband, from their public GBV scandal; their wedding down to the current state of their marriage.
After the penultimate episode, social media has been scrutinizing the situation around Babes Wodumo and many seem to be concerned about the life of Babes – real name Bongekile Simelane.
Sitting down with Bishop Vusi Dube a marriage councillor from her church, Babes bared it all in an update on her marriage.
Finances: Mampintsha’s Fraudulent Activities
Babes told her pastor that she believed Mampintsha was up to no good with her finances as far as her career was concerned. She thinks her husband was fraudulently taking advantage of her.
“On the work front, he made me sign into a company I don’t know…which makes it fraudulent. I was told that all my music and royalties have been transferred to this company. How?”
“Every time I release a song, they would block it from being played on Facebook because the usage rights belong to said company,” revealed Babes.
Mampintsha is allegedly taking money from Babe’s songs and using it for his personal stuff without consulting her.
“As his wife, I deserve to get all these answers,” Babes added.
Other damning allegations made by Babe are that Mampintsha was a serial cheat who continues hitting on celebrities on Instagram, and was sleeping with Babes’ dancers and friends.
Ever since Babes lost access to her Instagram she had been using Mampintsha’s account to access the social media site. Babes claim that she found messages of Mampintsha hitting on other women, including celebrities who Babes knows well.
Mampintsha Love Child And Polygamy
Babes revealed that she discovered that Mampintsha had fathered a secret love child during their marriage. She claims that she is afraid this leaves a possibility for polygamy as Mampintsha may choose to marry the mother of his child.
At the end of the show, Babes says that the woman in question was her childhood friend and that’s what hurt her the most about the whole issue.
Speaking about all the troubles in her life and marriage, Babes sounded more deflated and without hope for what her next step was in life.
“I don’t know anymore, I’m still just thinking,” she concluded the episode segment.
This has caused a stir on social media as her fans urge her to leave Mampintsha and start her own life before it was too late.
“This is the story of Tina Turner. She eventually left Ike with just the clothes on her back and not a cent to her name. She then started a solo career at the age of 40.
If Mampintsha doesn’t kill her, Babes will eventually leave when she’s ready. But only she can save herself.” one Twitter user said.
In the upcoming episode 3 of the show, Babes and her pastor will approach Mampintsha on the allegations and their way forward.
