Twitter went into a frenzy this afternoon after it was revealed that Bonang Matheba did not buy the Rust En Vrede Wine Estate.
This comes after Matheba uploaded a series of pictures of herself on social media at the wine farm with the caption “I’ve always wanted a vineyard.”
Many sent congratulatory messages to Matheba on social media thinking she had bought the wine farm.
This however was short-lived as a curious tweep, Lwazi Pakade, contacted the estate to confirm whether indeed it was purchased by Matheba.
Pakade took twitter and wrote "I just got off the phone now with the people at Rust En Vrede Wine Estate and I can safely confirm that Bonang_M did not purchase the Wine Estate or any piece of it."
He added, "Michele from Rust En Vrede said the rumour is unfortunate because she was only here for lunch yesterday."
According to other media reports Bonang’s manager Davin Phillips Phillips laughed off the situation and said the star had never claimed to have purchased the property.
"Bonang hasn't purchased Rust En Vrede. She was having lunch and working in the winelands yesterday. She was there for an upcoming venture that we will reveal in time," Davin said.
