Sources close to the couple told Sunday Sun the couple was not yet prepared to go public with their relationship.
Phindile plays Noni, a gossipy receptionist in the SABC2 soapie.
One source told Sunday Sun: “Phindile posted a video of herself during a visit in Khune’s place. She didn’t realise everything in that house was easily recognisable because her man is used to posting pictures of himself in that house.”
Another source claimed: “They’re very much in love. But Itu has learnt his lesson. When he goes public about his affairs, they don’t end well. But they spend most of their time together at Itu’s house.”
A third source alleged Noni had been linked with former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder, Siyabonga Nkosi. was now sharing sheets with Itumeleng.
This insider added: “It’s quite surprising that Phindile is now dating Khune. Because not so long ago, she was dating Siyabonga.
“We even saw them leaving a club together during his (Itu’s) games in Newcastle last year.
“Phindile is busy. I’m not sure if their relationship is just a fling or if it’s real. Because everyone knows Phindile rolls with people who have cash.”
Recently, Itu was dumped via a social media post by Durban gym guru, Sbahle Mpisane.
Phindile refused to comment and hung up the phone.
Khune was not available for comment, as he was in camp for yesterday’s derby against Orlando Pirates.
His manager, Thato Matuka, refused to comment on his behalf “because it’s a personal matter”.
