However, she revealed on the show that such scrutiny was inevitable when people sought to find fault. Mihlali emphasised that others’ opinions didn’t shape her reality.
“The only thing I will say about that is that when people have nothing to come at you about then they are going to find something to constantly dig at you, they are going to try to find something that may be a weakness that they’ll constantly dig at you, and honestly people’s opinions have nothing to do with my reality.”
Mihlali emphasized that she is very much in love with Leeroy even though their relationship has been marred by a lot of controversy and scandals
“I’m in a happy relationship, and I’m very much in love, and that’s all people should know.”
