Iva Ristic, the wife of Springboks player Elton Jantjies, has faced backlash for airing their dirty laundry – and in particular, criticising the “other woman” in the picture – dietician Zeenat Simjee.
The fashion model, who is a mom to three boys, shared her “confusion” at Simjee’s statement on Friday. She also accused the Boks professional of “blocking” her on social media.
Elton Jantjies and Zeenat Simjee are accused of having an affair after they were allegedly discovered together at a Mbombela guest house earlier this month. However, both Jantjies and Simjee have denied the allegations.

ELTON JANTJIES WIFE QUESTION ZEENAT SIMJEE’S VERSION
With Zeenat Simjee labelling allegations of an affair with Elton Jantjies as “false and baseless”, his wife Iva Ristic shared her candid opinion.
Taking to her Instagram Stories, Iva clapped back that Zeenat had “blocked” her on Instagram. She also claims that Boks employee did not offer her an explanation.
She wrote: “Confused reading the statement from the good-hearted Zeenat talking about [a] completely different weekend that has nothing to do with the timing of the actual incident is actually hilarious. And I still don’t get why she blocked me on Instagram and didn’t say a word to me”.

Sharing proof that Zeenat had blocked her on social media, Iva shared a screenshot of her DMS. In it, Iva texted Zeenat: “Is there anything you want to tell me?”.
In the screenshot, the message was seen but seemingly not responded to.

On Facebook, followers of The South African reacted to news of Iva Jantjies’s public criticism of Zeenat Simjee.
Many admonished Elton Jantjies’s wife for not dealing with the scandal “privately”. They also claimed that Zeenat was “justified” in offering no explanation to Iva.
Aletta Stander: “So when your husband tells you there was nothing, you still ask the lady if she has something to tell you? So basically you don’t believe your husband. I am sorry for you. You will never trust him again. The truth you must know is already in your heart”
Mmaphoka Mmaphoka: “I would also block her, she should deal with her husband and leave Zeenat alone”
Paul Mangwiro: “Never ask anyone but your partner…never confront the 3rd person…confront your partner!”
Denis De Sousa: “Single people don’t owe married people anything. Married people must communicate between married people”
Ursula Quickfallbaynes: “They must sort it in private!”
Others sided with Iva and claimed that Zeenat Simjee’s silence was proof that she was “clearly guilty”.
Johan Steyn: “If it was false and baseless why not do the right thing and respect the wife’s question and answer?”
Shirley Smith: “Absolutely cause the truth hurts! Clearly guilty”
