The engineer in retirement wed Maye in 1970, but they separated in 1979. Errol holds himself responsible for his split with Maye.
“I was entirely responsible for the failed marriage. “It didn’t end up working out too well,” he told Business Insider South Africa.
“Even when we’re together, my [former] wife refuses to speak to me, so we haven’t spoken to one another in 37 years. “When we’re in the same room, she won’t speak to me or engage me, which has happened frequently,” he stated.
Maye also alleged that Errol was abusive.
ALEXANDRA AND ASHA
Errol has two kids with his ex-wife, Heide Bezuidenhout: Alexandra and Asha (57). Errol wed Heide when she was a young widow in 1992. Reportedly, her spouse Jock Bezuidenhout perished in a car accident.
YOUNGER KIDS WITH STEPDAUGHTER
Errol also has two younger children with Heide’s daughter Jana, whom he has nurtured since she was four years old and is his stepdaughter. The couple gave birth to their first kid in 2017 and their second in 2019.
The second child was unplanned, but they were living together at the time, according to The Sun.
“She was not intended. However, we did reside together. Jana remained here for around 18 months following the birth of Rushi. “However, I realized that she is two generations behind, whereas her mother was only one generation behind when I married her,” he told the publication.
