NEWLYWEDS, Minnie Dlamini and her husband Quinton Jones, are ready to fully embrace the next chapter of their married life after recently tying the knot in a glamorous white wedding. Minnie explained that she will legally change her surname, but will continue using her maiden name for brand purposes. She also shed light on rumours of her outstanding wedding bill and that she got R6 million from MultiChoice for rights to their wedding.

Minnie and Quinton tied the knot in an extravagant white wedding in Cape Town last month. During an interview on Touch HD with Tbo Touch recently, she said she could not wait to have children.

"I can’t wait to start a family. We know it will all happen in due time. We aren’t in a rush, but we can’t wait to start a family‚" she said.

The couple kept their relationship out of the public eye for several months before geting married. Minnie says the decision to keep her love affair with Quinton private was because of the public scrutiny she had to endure during her previous relationship with Bafana Bafana goalkeeper, Itumeleng Khune.

"I went through the phase of public displays of affection and that was fine. I don’t regret anything, but I wanted to have a relationship without the media, public and sometimes even my friends and family meddling‚" she said on Touch HD.

Minnie explained that she’ll keep her maiden surname for brand purposes, but will legally change her surname to Jones.
She added that it took her years to build her brand in the entertainment industry and this is why she’s keeping her surname in showbiz.

"I will continue to be Minnie Dlamini, but legally I will change my surname to Jones," she said during a recent radio interview with DJ Fresh on Metro FM's breakfast show.

According to a Sunday newspaper, Minnie and her husband apparently owed their wedding planner half a million Rand for their wedding and could only afford to pay R300 000. The wedding planner’s lawyer later confirmed that the Jones and his client came to an agreement and the matter was resolved.

"Our client has instructed us to advise that she has accepted a settlement offer made by Minnie Dlamini, the terms of which our client, in good faith, prefers not to disclose," the lawyer was quoted by the newspaper.

During an interview with an online publication, Minnie dismissed tabloid reports that she sold her wedding rights to MultiChoice for R6 million.

"I did not get R6 million for the show. I wish I did," Minnie told the online publication.

Our efforts to reach Minnie were unsuccessful as she didn’t answer her phone or reply to text messages at the time of going to print.
