Monique worked as flight attendant with Emirates Airlines from 2011 to 2015 after which she switched jobs to work as a marketing representative with Shimansky Jewellery.
The relationship took a dive earlier in 2021 after news broke that Katlego had cheated on her and infected her with an STD. Katlego confirmed in 2020 that they were going through a painful separation. The scandal resulted in his losing a lot of jobs.

In 2018, Katlego and Monique announced the safe arrival of their first child, a boy named Phoenix Maboe. The news came as a shock to Katlego’a fans who were not happy about it. Reacting to it, Monique said; “I am happy for my man and he is great at what he does, and it so happens to put him in this position for people to think they have a say. I for one did not want this to be public at all, which is increasingly the reason seeing this is so frustrating. But we were advised to do so, so media couldn’t put their own spin on it. I am quite irrelevant so then please refrain from commenting on my (this irrelevant person’s) pregnancy.”
