“Look, as far as relationships are concerned, I am currently single after breaking up with the man I was seeing. I am not attracted to women like that. I have kissed women and I believe there is a picture circulating of me kissing a woman, but it was just a kiss. I kiss a lot of people when I am at events because I am friendly to my fans. But I am not lesbian,” she said.

The entertainer explained that she had a lot of friends who belonged to the LGBTI community, whom she loves dearly. She also explained said she was single because she was “intimidating” to her ex.

“My schedule and change in financial standing became too much for him. I think he was intimidated and I also can’t have a man who thinks it’s okay for me to just give him money. No matter how much money I make, I still needed him to be a man in the relationship. So I was sad when he told me we had drifted away but I wasn’t willing to buy love,” she explained.

An entertainment analyst has decried the emergence of fake news publications that continue to churn our fabricated articles, some of which has dire effects on entertainers and celebrities in terms of their image and PR costs. Zodwa waBantu fans include men, and the alleged fake article that makes claims that she is lesbian is surely meant to discourage her legion of fans to see her the way they do. In this age of digital media, news spread fast and sometimes it is difficult to pick out what is real and fake.
