Pretoria - Former Springbok captain Joost van der Westhuizen has apparently moved out of the house he shared with singer Amor Vittone in Dainfern Valley, Johannesburg.
He moved in with Garry Hartslief, a business acquaintance, on Thursday, someone who knows the Van der Westhuizens as well as Hartslief said on Wednesday night.
He was speaking on condition of anonymity "because I don't want to harm any relationships. I can guarantee you that my information is completely correct".
Neither Van der Westhuizen nor Hartslief confirmed or denied the rumour on Wednesday night.
Van der Westhuizen said: "What happens in my house is my personal business, so I won't be commenting, like I've already said last year after the whole video debacle."
The debacle he's referring to is the sex video showing him and a stripper half-naked. The former rugby player also appears to be snorting drugs in the video.
Hartslief says both Amor and Joost are friends of his, so he would rather not comment.
"I'm not confirming the information, but I'm not denying it either.
"What I can say, is that the facts as they've now been presented to me are not 100% correct."
According to Beeld's source, Amor asked for a separation "because she wants to have clarity about the journey ahead for her and Joost. No one is saying a divorce is inevitable."
Amor did not respond to requests on her cellphone for comment.
