Dillish's ex-boyfriend is Stephen Gaeseb. The couple broke up in December 2014, after Stephen flirted with another woman. 

“We flirted via text messages and so on. I mean all guys flirt, it doesn’t mean you intend on acting on it. She then sent a snapshot of our conversations to a friend of Dillish, who eventually sent it to Dillish. We had an argument about that, which led to an argument about other things and we both said some things that we wish we didn’t. After that we decided to break-up and haven’t been together since December,” Stephen told The Namibian Sun. 

After Stephen, Dillish dated footballer Emmanuel Adebayor.
