After coming clean regarding his affair with Springbok dietician Zeenat Simjee, Elton Jantjies seems to have found another side romance once again. Zimoja spotted him all cosy with a young gorgeous woman at a function last week known as Ashly Ogle, who is said to be related to Lebo Mâ€™s wife, Pretty Samuels-Morake.
The Springbok fly half reportedly admitted to his wife, Iva Ristic, last year that he had been involved with Simjee for several months. The story of the affair broke when Springbok was in Argentina and both Jantjie and Simjee were sent back home last year September. In a statement then, the Springbok management said they were aware of the report and that no team protocols were breached. "The individuals are returning to South Africa to attend to these personal reports and to eliminate any distractions to the teamâ€™s preparations for the test against Argentina," SA Rugby said in the statement at the time. There were allegations that Jantjies did not stay at the hotel with the rest of the team and opted to book a private guest house where he stayed with Simjee. The problem started when his credit card was rejected and he promised to pay the next day. Instead of paying his bill, he sneaked out of the guesthouse at 6AM the next morning, only paying the R4,000 bill after weeks. He then booked into another guesthouse, a five-star establishment where he left a bill of about R26,000 for expensive champagne, flowers, spa treatments and romantic candlelit dinners with Simjee.
Jantjies was spotted getting cosy with Ashly at the launch of an alcoholic brand at the Indaba Hotel in Sandon, Johannesburg. The couple who also arrived and left together wore black matching outfits and could not stop looking at each other throughout the event. A source tells ZiMoja the couple has managed to keep their romance on the low from the prying eyes of the media but are slowly living their lives openly. "I donâ€™t think they care what people think anymore," adds the source. According to the source, the two have known each other for long, after they were introduced by a mutual friend years ago but lost contact. "They bumped into each other again at a friendâ€™s party and it was a mutual attraction," adds the source. He seems to be picking up the pieces of his life and maybe moving on after his estranged wife and three kids relocated to Cyprus to get away from the media attention after the bomb about his infidelities burst. At the time, Ristic said she will do right by her children and move on.
The young lover appeared to be keeping him excited at the event and it seemed there is fire between the bad boy and the tattoo-covered edgy beauty When asked for comment, Ashly said: "Why donâ€™t you call your sources and leave me alone," before rudely dropping the call. Jantjies declined to comment.
