Did Thuli Phongolo Just Come Out As Gay?
Thuli Phongolo has rocked South African social media for one week straight now, and it has all been about her relationship status. It would seem that she has chemistry with everyone she is photographed with, because her pictures keep sparking dating rumours. The latest was when tweeps thought she was dating Mr JazziQ following some steamy photos of them together. Fans came out to offer comfort to DJ Maphorisa, as they thought the images meant she was now with Mr JazziQ, and had broken up with DJ Maphorisa.
In the latest installment of Thuli’s relationship drama, social media users are wondering whether she just came out of the closet.
In a recent picture she posted, the actress sported a pink T-shirt, with the words “Gay Pride” across the front. While the photo seemed like it was sending a message, on its own, it wouldn’t have sparked as many questions. However, in addition to her caption, it seemed like she was saying something to her followers. Her caption read “Rainbow nation!!! 🤍”. Have a look at the picture
Fans poured into her comments to compliment her on the lovely photo. But multiple fans equally read into the photo and the caption, concluding that it was her subtle way of coming out as a member of the LGBTQ+ community. “Are you gay?” one asked, while countless others offered her their support if indeed she was coming out.
The photo and what it seems to suggest would be quite the interesting twist to the relationship saga that has followed the Generations: The Legacy actress in recent weeks. But Thuli is no stranger to wild plot twists. Remember that time when tweeps thought she was dating Master KG, then she came out and asked people to respect her, suggesting that the allegations were disrespectful? That was rough!
Luckily for her, she rarely ever lets popular opinion dictate her life. She always comes out to set the record straight, as she did with the Mr JazziQ rumours. She also just announced that she has booked a vacation and will be leaving soon. Honestly, she deserves it. This has been a hectic week and she has been dragged mercilessly. Maybe when she gets back, she will also clear up the whole gay thing? I mean, she doesn’t have to, as she clearly prefers to keep her love life private. It would be nice to satisfy the curiosity of the fans, though.
