Last month shortly after HHP’s death, Lerato told Sowetan that both she and Leano had been struggling to come to terms with HHP’s passing.
According to TshisaLIVE, HHP took his own life after a lengthy battle with depression.
Lerato and Jabba were co-parents to their son Leano and they were not romantically involved for years. The late hip-hop star was traditionally married to publicist Lerato Sengadi.
