Pearl Thusi is wearing her engagement ring on THAT finger again- does this mean her and Robert got back together?
The radio and television personality posted a picture of herself on Instagram wishing fans a happy blue Monday – but all fans could notice was the big rock on her ring finger.
The 29-year-old was engaged to her longtime partner Robert Marawa in 2016 but the engagement was called off around August 2017.
According to The Citizen, before the break up the couple had a public fight on Twitter where they subtweeted each other, which ended up with Robert blocking Pearl on Twitter. Adding to the turmoil, Pearl’s father Bhekizizwe Thusi opened up to Sunday Sun in January last year about her daughters’ relationship with Robert.
Talking to Sunday Sun, Bhekizizwe said he was not happy with the Marawas for not paying lobola. “The Marawa family treats Pearl as their makoti but they haven’t united the two families in the traditional way and I’m still waiting for the Marawas to come for ilobolo negotiations.” he said.
When speaking to Sowetan about the break up Pearl said, “Yes, it’s a private issue, but it was an incredible relationship. I wouldn’t trade it. I learnt a lot from it. I think we’ve all taken the lessons we needed to take from that journey and hopefully we can all move forward from that.”
However, it seems the couple might have sorted things out as the ring Pearl is sporting in the new picture bears a shocking resemblance to her old engagement ring from her ex-fiancé Robert.
