Actress Natasha Thahane says she needs no consolation. 

This after she announced the split with her boyfriend on Monday.

“Thembinkosi Lorch and I have decided to part ways romantically. Despite the change in our relationship we will remain friends and co-parents. I am looking forward to this new chapter in my life, #NewBeginnings.”

Natasha has shared cryptic posts on her Instagram stories. 

After making the announcement, Natasha shared a clip of Rihanna's interview with Oprah where she recounted the abuse she allegedly experienced at the hands of singer Chris Brown.

On Thursday, Natasha said she did not need healing after the break-up and was grateful to have left the relationship alive.

Suba muncu! This happened a long time ago. Now let me post in peace! Abo 'heal' animeni. I am grateful I came out alive.”

TshisaLIVE has reached out to Natasha for comment. Any update will be included once received. Her manager said “there was nothing to clarify” regarding the posts.

Natasha's suggestive post has raised eyebrows as Thembinkosi's dark past comes to light. 

In June 2023, the soccer star was found guilty of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm.  

According to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), Lorch was found guilty in the Randburg magistrate's court of assaulting his then girlfriend Fundishwa Nokuphiwa Mathithibala on September 7 2020. 

“The case relates to a complaint laid with Midrand police by his girlfriend in September 2020 that resulted in his arrest and subsequent release on bail of R2,000,” said NPA spokesperson Phindi Mjonondwane. 

“Fundiswa Nokuphiwa Mathithibala said she was visiting Lorch when he left her at his home to go out with his friend. Mathithibala saw it was getting late and messaged him to return her car keys,” Mjonondwane said. 

“On arrival, an argument ensued and Lorch became violent and started to strangle her, beat her while pulling her up and down. She called for help and his friend came to her rescue.”
