Thanks to the Twitter ‘detectives’, Natasha’s fans have known for a while that she is seeing the Orlando Pirates star.
Natasha and Thembinkosi travelled to Zanzibar in June for a mini vacation. While they didn’t share any pictures together, it became quite clear they were on holiday together.
One Twitter user spotted Thembinkosi in the reflection of Natasha’s sunglasses!
