From her days as a presenter on LIVE, a music show on SABC,Minnie Dlamini has caught the hearts of many. She has managed to stay relevant in the entertainment industry for over a decade now. It seems all has been going well for Minnie both in her life and career and she further capped that by marrying the man of her dreams, Quinton Jonesin 2017. Her life has been nothing, but full of bliss.
With her life being in the public eye so much, Minnie has not had it easy at times. Many have pointed out that since getting married she has gained some weight. This has led to her receiving scrutiny from the public non-stop, but that has not stopped her from living her life the way she wants to.
Here’s the times Minnie was body-shamed over the past two years.
Your husband will cheat
Minnie Dlamini was one of several stars who attended the opening of the Durban International Film Festival last week. She wore a figure-hugging dress from designer dress store, Cinnel, that showed off her hour-glass figure. While many of her followers thought she looked “gorgeous”, one man caused an uproar on Twitter by suggesting the TV presenter was letting herself go.
“Why do woman stop taking care of themselves after being married one she is getting fat every day. Look at her face and chin. Mr Jones will start searching!!” he wrote. Some of Minnie’s fans clapped back.
“Wena why are you worried if she’s getting fat or not. You are not Mr Jones. Shut up, drink water and mind It,” one woman wrote.
In 2018, Minnie addressed pregnancy rumours, but she quickly shut those down by stating that she had just gained a little bit of weight. However, the rumours surfaced again early this year when she attended the Sun Met in Cape Town with her husband. People said that it was because of her dress which made her look fuller around the waist, so they assumed she was pregnant.
These are some of the hurls that these celebs have to go through since they are in the public eye. Minnie has somehow managed to keep her head held up high in all of this turmoil.
