Zoe Mthiyane accused of being a diva on ‘Generations’ set
Updated: July 24, 2018
Actress Zoe Mthiyane has found herself making tabloid headlines after Sunday Sun reported that she’s allegedly a diva on set
Zoe bagged a role on Generations: The Legacy in 2016, and her character Zitha has become an integral part of the storyline over the past two years.
However, behind the scenes Zoe has allegedly been labelled “difficult” to work with, and according to Sunday Sun sources, the actress likes doing things “her own way”.
“Some of the crew members dread working with her as she wants to do things her way,” said a source.
The source further claimed that Zoe likes to pretend she calls the shots.
“She behaves as if she is some kind of madam. She gives crew members a hard time while they try to do their job,” added the source.
Zoe has not commented on the reports but is no stranger to dealing with bad publicity
In 2016, the actress and her ex-fiancé, Lebo M shocked fans when they publicly called off their engagement.
They went on to air their dirty laundry in the media throwing spicy accusations at each other.
Lebo M, who is the world-renowned producer of the The Lion Kingproduction claimed that things apparently unraveled because Zoe refused to sign a pre-nuptial agreement.
In an interview with Drum magazine at the time, Zoe denied the claims. She said she was disappointed and hurt by the claims.
“I love him, we travelled together, we really had fun together, and he is the father of my child, but it became toxic,” she said at the time.
