“After many discussions we have decided to go on separation while I seek professional help for my depression so that after this process we can have a chance to deal with our marriage through counselling,” wrote Ncube.

He requested that people respect their privacy as they go through this tough time.

“As such we are just kindly requesting some time to deal with some huge issues privately if you can allow us that. Thank you,” he added.

The couple got married in 2012 in the Bahamas. In 2018 they hinted that they were considering adopting children.
