Not paying maintenance’: Minnie Dlamini slams ex in ‘Roast’

Get ready for some fiery entertainment as Minnie Dlamini takes center stage in the upcoming Showmax Roast, where she doesn’t hold back in addressing her ex-husband, Quinton Jones.

Since their separation in 2022, Minnie and Quinton have been embroiled in a custody battle and reports regarding spousal support, making their relationship a prime target for comedic scrutiny.

The Roast of Minnie Dlamini, recorded earlier this month at the Laugh Africa Comedy Festival in Sandton, promises to deliver laughs aplenty when it airs on Showmax this Friday, April 26th. With a star-studded lineup of guest panelists including Celeste Ntuli, Lasizwe, Trevor Gumbi, and Robert Marawa, alongside roastmasters Jason Goliath and Tumi Morake, viewers are in for a night of uproarious entertainment.

Minnie, seizing the opportunity to turn adversity into amusement, shared her excitement about the event, stating, “This is a moment for me to turn lemons into lemonade. This is a moment for me to see and hear a lot of the things that people have been saying about me [which were cruel and mean] and turn what was said into something light and fun.”

However, the laughter doesn’t come without its fair share of shade. In a preview trailer released this week, Minnie is seen cringing at some of the panelists’ cheeky jabs, including fat jokes, quips about her failed marriage, and digs at her intelligence or lack thereof. But Minnie isn’t one to shy away from a retort, as she boldly fires back at her ex-husband, Quinton Jones, declaring, “I’ve got one last thing to say. I’m not paying no f**king maintenance.”

This bold statement references reports that Minnie pays R10,000 in monthly spousal support, shedding light on the personal and financial complexities of their relationship. As the teasers suggest, Minnie’s ex-husband may be in for a rough ride during the roast, affectionately referred to as “Mr. Jones.”

While Minnie braces herself for the comedic onslaught, she may face heat over various headlines that have followed her over the years, including her transition from “It Girl” status to social media scrutiny, rumors surrounding her lobola payment from ex-boyfriend Itumeleng Khune, and her rumored feud with fellow industry titan Bonang Matheba.

With anticipation building for the Roast of Minnie Dlamini, viewers can expect an evening filled with laughter, surprises, and perhaps a few uncomfortable truths as Minnie and her past become the focal point of the evening’s entertainment.
