Elton Jantjies and Zeenat Simjee's affair drama continues....

In an interview with Rapport, the Springbok flyhalf has denied that he was in a relationship with someone who looked like Zeenat. 

“As I confirmed to my wife, I did have a relationship with Zee (Zeenat). There is only one Zee," he told the publication.

He even added that it annoys him that the dietitian keeps denying the affair. 

“I don’t have to prove that Zee and I were more than friends. She knows the truth," he said. 

Last week, Zeenat's lawyer, Frikkie Erasmus, told the media that it was not Zeenat who was seen with Jantjies at a guest house in Mbombela during the week leading up to the Springboks test match against the All Blacks in Mbombela, but someone who looks like her. 

“This is the case of mistaken identity. She wasn’t there. Someone said at that time it was her, but it wasn’t her,” Erasmus told the Beeld publication. 

A few weeks back, Elton admitted the affair to the public and said he regretted it. 

"This has not been an easy ride for me. I've had to take a really hard look at my life and the choices I made in the past. I know my actions have caused a great deal of pain to everyone, especially my wife who has always been by my side. I have apologised to her and have made it my mission to make it up to her for as long as I live," the rugby player told News24.
