Sorisha Naidoo has spoken fondly about how she met her husband Vivian Reddy at a social event in Durban.

At the time, Vivian was separated from his first wife, and they embarked on a friendship.

Speaking to journalist Greg Arde, she said: “We didn’t see each other a lot, but we’d talk for two hours a day on the phone, and he was so refreshing. His conversation was challenging, and he fed my mind.”

Vivian soon made his romantic intentions known to her.

Sorisha said in a Showmax segment of her persistent partner” “I remember, he used to call me when I DJed at a local radio station on a hotline. And I remember asking him: How did you get my cell phone number? As only management had the number. He simply said: ‘I have my ways’.”

Sorisha would later tell IOL in 2013 of being labelled a “gold-digger”: “I welcome it. It used to haunt me, but I don’t care now. I always earned a reasonably good salary, and I’ve never stopped working.”
