Other celebrities who called it quits in recent months include Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez.
J.Lo and A-Rod called it quits in April – several months after their relationship was rocked by cheating claims.
Mzansi star Prince Kaybee was trending on Wednesday morning after his side chick exposed him as a cheater.
He made a public apology to his girlfriend, Zola Mhlongo.
Zenande’s fans agreed with her remarks about idolising popular couples.
“My take: When you ever choose to idolize a relationship or an individual you must never forget that they’re human and that they’re prone to err,” one tweep replied.
