Recently, speaking to Anele Mdoda on her new talk show Real Talk on SABC 3, sports journalist Robert Marawa openly spoke about his rumoured relationship with TV personality Pearl Thusi.

While the couple have never really been open about their relationship, Robert and Pearl have been hinting at dating for almost a year by publishing cryptic posts on social media.

On the talk show, Anele dared to touch on the topic of love, but the sports journalist didn’t hold back. Anele told Robert that according to his lady, he proposed to her in a restaurant.

He responded by saying: “I’m sure she wasn’t lying because the evidence is there and I’m sure she showed you,” Robert said.

The talk show host asked Robert how he initially approached his lady, and he said: “We initially met at a Polo event. She was in her car which ironically was a VW Polo, we introduced ourselves and started talking. She was driving and I was walking, so we call it the ‘walk and talk’. I always remind her about the ‘walk and talk’. Nothing was exchanged at the time, no numbers…

“So when Senzo Meyiwa passed away, I did a tribute show and she sent a message to say how impressed she was.”

Robert added that Pearl has learned how to handle her fans and foes on social media and also what to expose and what to be hush about.

“It’s a journey, so allow it to happen. But it will get to a stage like now where it’s maturity, where you don’t have to say ‘Yay, I’m in a movie’. Allow that work to kick in, little pockets of information will come out. That’s what happened now,” Robert says, referring to Pearl who is currently in New York shooting Quantico, a US drama series about young FBI recruits in training to become special agents.

We wish the happy couple nothing but love!
