IT SEEMS July has been nothing but a sad month for love and Cupid.

This as likable couple, beauty queen-turned-businesswoman Zizo Beda and her political spin doctor hubby, have allegedly taken a sho’t left into Splitsville.

According to insiders, things between Zizo and Mayihlome Tshwete aren’t quite as rosy as they seem.

A family member informant said the couple was living apart for the sake of peace, as they were always at each other’s throats.

Said the informant: “None of them is saying anything, but we can tell things are different, as we hardly see Zizo anymore.”

Another source, Zizo’s friend, said the two were always arguing on the phone, via text or in one-on-one situations.

Insisted the source: “She’s always yelling over the phone. Zizo would often speak about her hubby, but lately she doesn’t say anything.”

The third source said this was the first big setback experienced by Zizo and her man.

“They’re going through a lot of pressure and facing many challenges,” the mole said.

“As a young couple, this was inevitable because they live in the fast world of Jozi. There are so many things happening.

“When it comes to certain decisions, they’re bound to differ, nothing new here, as marriage life can be stressful.”

According to the source, Zizo was no longer the bubbly person she used to be.

“We’ve noticed a change,” the mole claimed.

“She’s even lost weight, and knowing Zizo, she’s really trying to make it work. She puts her family before anything.

“But we also know they’re going through a rough patch at the moment, which is normal because every marriage has its ups and downs.”

The fourth source told the SunTeam the couple’s families had even stepped in to calm the situation.

Asserted the source: “And now it’s up to Zizo and Mayihlome to decide a way forward.

“Personally, I think it’s good that they’re living separately at the moment. It gives them enough time and space to think about whether they want the marriage or not.”

Yesterday, Zizo refused to comment. She also promised to get back to us, but she did not at the time of going to print.

Mayihlome said: “It’s no one’s business, my man”, and hung up.
