The business partnership between sultry media personality Minnie Dlamini and her ex-husband Quinton Jones fell apart after their high-profile split.
Dlamini and Jones, who walked down the aisle on July 8, 2017, announced their split in a joint statement in February.
They said they had tried to salvage their five-year marriage for the past two years by consulting their families and advisers for advice, but decided to go their separate ways when they couldn’t rekindle their love.
“Over the past two years, our family has experienced incredible joy and devastating loss. During this time, we found comfort in knowing that we had met.
“Despite our best efforts to absorb the changes in motion, the emotional burden and post-traumatic distress of our individual loss far exceeded our control. After months of separation and counseling with our family and a counsellor, we have taken the decision to formally file for divorce,” Dlamini said in a
Instagram statement at the time.
The former Metro FM presenter said that although estranged, they will remain business partners and friends. “Despite the end of our marriage and romantic relationship, we remain friends, business partners and loving parents to our beautiful son,” her statement read.
But a source close to the former couple said Jones had changed his mind about the partnership and informed Dlamini he had made the decision to quit their company, Beautiful Day Production. Jones, a source said, owns a 25% stake while Dlamini owns the rest of the shares in the company which produces TV shows, among other things.
The tipster also said Jones informed the former SABC1 sports presenter that he would be asking his lawyers to file divorce papers as he had lost love for her. The Deep Throat said Jones told Dlamini that he would also give her their home in Midrand where she would raise their child.
“Remember they were married by prenup, which is subject to the exercise system.”
Dlamini declined to comment and referred us to Jones, who did not return our calls and texts.
