Cyber bullying seems to have become the norm on social media these days, but one person who is not willing to put up with the hate is singer Kelly Khumalo

The 'Lovely Fool' hitmaker took to Twitter recently to reveal that she had blocked 1,000 people on the platform. 

Kelly has endured her fair share of online bullying over the years, with some people calling her ugly names like "cursed woman", "homewrecker", and "gold digger". 

She was once again the talk of the Twitterverse recently after her sister, Zandie Khumalo, announced she was "divorcing" her.

The sisters had a very public falling out after Zandie's husband, Mhlo Gumede, was accused of using Kelly's name to scam an event organiser out of thousands of Rands. 

Kelly distanced herself from the alleged scam and made it clear that Mhlo was not her booking agent. 

In a lengthy statement shared on Instagram, Zandie slammed her "toxic" sister for the "haphazard, premature and unnecessary" comments on the matter.

"I know the fight is not even about a gig she was supposedly booked for but the fight it with me and my husband because we both refused that I become a part of her upcoming reality TV show without being compensated accordingly," Zandie wrote in a since deleted post.

She added that she knew many things about Kelly that would make people's jaws drop.

Some Twitter users used the family drama to once again criticise Kelly online. 

But Kelly has learned an important lesson on how to deal with her haters - just click 'block'.

Kelly is putting her haters on mute and focusing on her upcoming "gospel meets afro night".

The 'I Look To You' show is taking place at the Soweto Theatre on March 26. 

"Can’t wait to share who’s joining me on stage," she wrote on Instagram.
