Springboks rugby player Elton Jantjies has sparked infidelity rumors with team nutritionist Zeenat Simjee.
Jantjies and Simjee were both sent home from Argentina after reports of an alleged affair emerged. According to media reports, the flyhalf, who is married with three children, has been unable to pay a pension bill in Mbombela, Mpumalanga, where he reportedly spent a R26,000 romantic night away from the team hotel.
South African Rugby Union (Saru) President Mark Alexander said management is gathering the facts, adding that Saru has strict team rules. He promised that the management will deal with the issue at hand.
In May, Jantjies was arrested for vandalizing the property of an airline he was flying on from Dubai to Johannesburg. The case was withdrawn in June.
