At the time she began dating the football star, Senzo Meyiwa was still married to his wife, Mandisa Mkhize. Their marriage was barely one year old when he started cheating with Kelly Khumalo. Mkhize was gutted after she found and she soon moved out of the home they shared together. Accusing Kelly Khumalo of homewrecking, Meyiwa\u2019s family became very hateful of her. Unfortunately for the Bafana-Bafana goalkeeper, he was shot dead in a robbery at Khumalo\u2019s home in Vosloorus where he had been spending a lot of time on 26 October 2014. Khumalo who was present during the robbery would later reveal that he had promised to divorce his wife and marry her. The football star was given a state funeral which his family banned Khumalo from attending. Meyiwa\u2019s family also accused Khumalo of being involved in their son\u2019s death. When Kelly announced that she had recorded a song in Senzo\u2019s honor, his father said she would be cursed for doing so without the permission of the family, wishing she got arrested on stage while performing.

Kelly Khumalo and Meyiwa had a daughter together and the late goalkeeper also shared a daughter with his wife Mandisa Mkhize.
