Trevor Gumbi shocks Instagram with divorce post
JOHANNESBURG – Comedian Trevor Gumbi shocked fans on Wednesday morning with an Instagram post, announcing his split from long-time partner Lucille.
The post read “It’s over…11 years of marriage and 17 years in a relationship. Over!” Minutes later his wife reposted the same image and caption on her own account.
Both Trevor’s and Lucille’s comments sections filled up with messages of disappointment and heartache from fans who have been supporting and following the celebrity couple through the ups and downs of their marriage.
In recent months, there were rumours and several reports that the couple was getting a divorce. The Sunday Sun reported that the pair separated in late 2016 after Lucille discovered Trevor had allegedly fathered a child with another woman.
He reportedly confessed only after the ‘baby mama’ told Mrs Gumbi in person.
The Gumbis denied the reports multiple time,s instead saying they are working on their marriage.
eNCA reached out to Trevor Gumbi’s representatives numerous times. One representative asked us to send an email for comment, but no reply was received.
Fans had mixed reactions to the news of the split on Twitter.
