The gorgeous Afrikaans singer is being criticised by Christian fans, after she shared a picture of herself posing in a blue swimsuit on social media.
Alisha de Lange had commented on the photo, which is from a mystery shoot Karlien recently worked on.
She wrote: “Verstaan nie lekker - jy noem jouself ’n Christen en dan post jy so vir n foto en adverteer dit op sosiale media? Ek wil jou liewer nie meer follow nie” (I don’t understand - you call yourself a Christian and then you post a picture like this and advertise it on social media. I’d rather not follow you anymore).
The 30-year-old mom of twins responded: “Ek waardeer julle almal se posts... Jeez dis sulke goed wat maak dat mense die woord Christen verafsku. I’m a follower of Jesus. I like your Christ but I don’t like your Christians.” (I appreciate all your posts... Jeez, it’s stuff like this that puts people ‘off’ Christians.”
Karlien, the sister of The Voice SA judge Bobby van Jaarsveld, looks to be doing well these days after divorcing former Springbok Derrick Hougaard last year.
The Strictly Come Dancing 2015 winner is now rumoured to be dating another former rugby player, Joe Breytenbach.
