GENERATIONS: The Legacy’s power couple Zoe Mthiyane and Rapulana Seiphemo’s relationship is said not to be as rosy as it was when it began early last year.
In June last year, Sunday Sun reported that the pair was involved and head over hills with each other.
But the rumour mill has it the couple’s relationship is now in tatters.
According to insiders, Zoe is hitting the green bottle to a point that she misses work and forgets her lines and Rapulana takes the rap.
“She doesn’t pitch for work sometimes and when she does she forgets her lines, which delays production because the scenes have to be dropped.
“Everyone blames Rapulana, because they’re together, so obviously when she doesn’t pitch, they ask him and he’s having none of it,” a source said.
The source said Zoe’s drinking problem isn’t only affecting her job, but her relationship as well.
Said the mole: “Rapulana doesn’t want to take the blame for her actions, so they fight a lot about it, especially when she doesn’t pitch for work.
“Also, Rapulana is also being blamed for his influence on Zoe, because he also drinks a lot, but controls it and that’s why he hates being blamed for her actions.”
The show’s bosses have apparently gotten involved and have asked her to get her act together.
“She was told by the bosses to get help for her drinking problem, because it’s not fair that production has to be delayed as a result of her not being able to handle her alcohol,” said a third source.
Both Rapulana and Zoe’s phones were constantly on voicemail.
