 (a white person)- that's the Move! magazine headline that landed the publication in hot water with the singer. 

The magazine's latest cover features an image of Kelly and her rumoured partner, rapper Chad da Don

While the story focuses on how Kelly found love on the set of her new music video, Dance Comigo, Kelly feels the words associated with the cover are racist.

"I can’t help but feel this headline is very racist, who still sees colour in this day and age," the singer wrote on Instagram.

Kelly threatened to take legal action against the magazine. 

"It could have ended with Kelly finds love but no you dirty mother f**kers had to take it that far! I warned you, but you didn't listen, I’m so coming for you even for the old shit you’ve written!"

Move! officials have issued an apology, saying they meant umlungu in a light-hearted way.

“The reference to umlungu was light-hearted and I agree with many readers that it has no relevance to the story. I apologise to Kelly Khumalo and readers who may be offended by the headline,” the editor said in a statement.

Kelly's relationship with Chad has left people talking for weeks. While some think the romance is just a PR stunt, the alleged couple seem more in love every day.

"Husband," Kelly captioned this image.
