Actor and comedian Siyabonga Radebe has broken his silence on Lerato Mvelase split. He also opened up about not being the best boyfriend nor the best father.
Siya revealed on Instagram on Wednesday after reports in Sunday Sun claimed he landed in hot water for allegedly violating a protection order his ex-girlfriend Lerato Mvelase has against him.
According to Daily Sun, the actor was subsequently released on bail by the Randburg Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday, where he’s due to appear again next month.
Siya explained that he had failed to be the best boyfriend and apologised for having disappointed not only Lerato, but also her family and his own.
The post reads as follows:
“I have not been the best boyfriend or the best father. I have disappointed Lerato’s family and my own. On top of that I have disrespected our own children and for this I apologies from the bottom of my heart, I wish there was a way to go back into time and make different choices but what is done is done, there is no undoing it, there is no going back, all I can do now is apologies and move forward and hopefully learn to use these challenging times as an example and lesson in the future, and call myself out…because God knows I went the wrong way for far too long this time around. I have never said this in public before but letting go of someone that you love and shared your life with is not an easy road to travel. Everyday feels like the journey just begun and will not end.”
“No amount of alcohol, late nights out and different girls can make the feeling of emptiness, where the love you had use to be disappear. I have tried and in these trying times I have made one mistake after another, and I have been so stubborn or too egotistical to admit that it is nobody else’s fault but my own. I have blamed everybody but myself and I am extremely sorry that it took this long for me to see.”
“What makes it extremely difficult is the fact that I feel the need to explain myself to others and not just her and our families. This is not an easy thing to do, I found it to be super difficult to do, I wish it wasn’t this way but it is, I wish I was more understanding and kinder to her but I was not, I was actually the complete opposite. I became everything that I promised her I would not be, I made a lot of mistakes and I paid for them greatly, sometimes it feels like I pay for them every day. I am not a nice guy and I am probably the worst boyfriend and the shittiest father I know, but I am happy I can see that now and I am working on myself because truth be told I want to be a good example to my peers and most importantly to my children. Lerato does such a wonderful job with our children regardless of the circumstances, she just keeps going, she is a wonderful mother, I thank the ancestors and the Gods that be for choosing her to mother my children.” – he captioned his Instagram photo with Lerato
