South Africans who follow Lee-Ann Liebenberg on Instagram spent Friday night trying to piece together various bits of information, as the model announced that she would be parting ways with her husband, Nicky van der Walt.
The two have been married for 10 years, and recently had their third child together.
Liebenberg made the announcement via Instagram Stories, and even went as far as to tag another woman, implying that there was infidelity.

According to The Sowetan, neither has responded to requests for comment.
I really don’t care about all of this, and there’s a good chance you don’t either.
But I guess when you live your life in the public eye, and post private details to your Instagram account on a Friday night while South Africa is living under lockdown, this is what happens.
Here’s hoping everyone comes out of this okay.
