A statement made during a chat with TMG Entertainment revealed that actress Jay Anstey and Top Billing presenter Jonathan Boynton-Lee are no longer an item.
The couple openly confirmed that they have taken a break from their relationship. However, there might still be hopes of getting back together.
Jonathan confirmed this when he said:
“We have split, but there is still lots of love there. Sometimes you have to take a step back for something to work in the future.”
Nevertheless, Jon said that the split was amicable and they will remain friends.
“We are still friends and still talking,” he explained. Moreover, Jay confirmed Jon’s words that they are no longer together. She also emphasized that the breakup was peaceful.
“Yes, it’s true. The break-up was amicable and I’m taking my time to focus on my career.”
Even though they both claim the break up was a peaceful one, it will remain a sad one in the heart of fans, as the couple were one of the darlings of the entertainment industry. Fondly called; ‘Mr and Mrs Boynton-Lee’, the couple have been dating for over a year.
One of their friends, Simba Mhere, was responsible for bringing them together before his death in 2015.
Nevertheless, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel for both Jay Anstey and Jonathan Boynton-Lee. The two former lovebirds have not removed each other as friends on social media. They have also retained many of their posts together.
Meanwhile, bedeviled by really hot split rumours for some months, Itu Khune’s Bae Sbahle Mpisane took to social media to confirm the news. The fitness bunny used her Instagram page to confirm speculations of her split from the Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Itumuleng Kune in July.
To make sure the message was very clear and not misconstrued, she wrote: “I am no longer dating the Kaizer Chiefs Bafana Bafana goalkeeper anymore sadly.”
Subsequently, the couple removed their loved-up pictures which they shared on the social media.
