I have been receiving a monthly monetary gift from my ex boyfriend who lives and works in the USA. He is not a South African tax payer and I am. This money is for my living expenses since I resigned my job in SA on his insistence (he had proposed) however our relationship didn't work out and I am in SA without a job or an income.

How much each month and am I correct in assuming he is American not South African?

Approximately R11,000 per month and he is an American citizen.

You will not be subject to tax on this amount.
