It has been a while since Lorna has been on the news for her cooking career. Recently her love-life and pregnancy rumours hogged the headlines but she dismissed one of the rumours.

Lorna has been said to be romantically involved with the EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu. According to Sunday World, the politician’s marriage to Siphesihle Pezi has ended. It is alleged that she even left their matrimonial house in Fourways.

“That marriage ended just before the general elections. We just didn’t want to talk about it then because we feared that if it became known, it would affect the campaign of the party,” a source told the publication.

The source also confirmed Floyd’s relationship with the relatively private media personality.

“The truth is that the DP [deputy president] was married and the public knew about his marriage because it was well-publicised. Now the public must know that he is no longer married and he is resting with Lorna Maseko from Alexandra township.”

Lorna did not address these rumours, but she laid the pregnancy rumours to rest.
