Kaizer Motaung Jnr breaks his silence: 'I used to be married but I'm much better now'

Former footballer Kaizer Motaung Jnr has spoken out following recent reports of him obtaining a protection order against his wife, suggesting that the pair might be headed for divorce.

The football star, and heir to the Kaizer Chiefs throne, took to Instagram late on Monday to post a quote reading:
"I used to be married but I'm much better now."

In a caption that suggested that the footballer might be making a fresh start, Kaizer wrote: "God has a plan for us all.. Journey begins. Life goes on."

His post drew widespread support from fans and friends, including actress Lorcia Cooper, who flooded the comments section with messages encouraging him to stay strong.

"Not ever easy... But it is what it is. #LifeGoesOn. GOD bless," the Scandal! actress wrote.

Reports earlier this month claimed that he had obtained an interim protection order against wife, Katherine Heider, for apparently physically abusing him. Since then, the couple's relationship has been exposed as strained and turbulent.

The footballer once again made headlines a few days ago when a court affidavit allegedly found that he had previously been rushed to a Johannesburg clinic in a terrible condition following an apparent overdose on cough medicine.

"As the respondent was not feeling well, I drove the motorcar and his condition seemed to deteriorate in a very short space of time. Shortly after getting into the car, his eyes began rolling backwards, he started shaking and screaming. He confided in me that he had consumed a few bottles of cough mixture that day and had been doing so for the past several weeks. He advised me that the cough mixture makes him feel happy," his wife stated in the affidavit.
