Celebrity couple Olinda Chapel (35) and Tytan Skhokho (29) have split. Singer Tytan, whose real name is Njabulo Nkomo, announced the separation in a statement, strongly hinting at domestic abuse.
“Our relationship has sadly ended due to a catalogue of events that took place in July 2019. I will be able to talk fully… after the completion of police investigations and various legal proceedings,” Tytan said in the statement released on Tuesday.
The couple married in the United Kingdom in March last year. But last month, social media star Olinda claimed that 29-year-old Tytan had cheated on her with her best friend only identified as Fungai.
Thirty-five-year-old Olinda, who had an acrimonious split from her last boyfriend, the musician Stunner, declared that she and Tytan were now in an open relationship after his alleged infidelity.
“From today, Tytan and Olinda are in an open relationship. He’s allowed to go out and chase skirts wherever. I’m giving him a hall pass and don’t want you people to be surprised if you happen to bump into him with other women – he has a pass,” said Olinda.
She said she was saving herself the stress of looking for a new partner, adding: “I can’t be jumping around from relationship to relationship.”
Tytan said he was receiving support “from a very strong legal team and domestic abuse services” – hinting strongly that the split was acrimonious.
It has been claimed online that Olinda grabbed all off Tytan’s clothes and jewellery after the split.
