As of late, Lance Stehr also addressed the standing of their relationship as the rumor going around for years has implied that the pair have gone their separate ways on bad terms.
Lance Stehr expressed that things started going in the wrong direction when Zola 7 had an affair with a woman who was working with a company that was parallel to his.
“Where it started going wrong was there was a person who used to work in our office who Zola was having an affair with and she was a booking agent,” he said. “She was running a parallel company next to our company and we didn’t know about it and then when we uncovered that and found out we had to lay charges against her. So we lay criminal charges against her and Zola was like;” (“if you don’t drop those charges against the person in question I’m leaving,”) that’s when it started Lance,”
In addressing Zola 7s current downfall from fame, Lance Stehr also revealed that it was due to poor decision-making by the singer as he had previously physically assaulted his girlfriend and resulting in him losing a deal with Cell C.
“You didn’t have to do a smear campaign against Zola, the reason why he lost a Cell C deal was that he beat up his girlfriend and pushed her through the window then he said I planted the girlfriend and I don’t know the f*cking girlfriend is,”
