Disgraced TV and Radio presenter Somizi Mhlongo is fed up with being mum.
This after Mohale Motaung’s explosive media report detailing serious abuse and cheating allegations from his estranged husband.
Sunday World on Sunday reported that it had gotten a hold of recordings of Motaung speaking to Legend Manqele, owner of the production house behind the pair’s reality shows, which aired on DStv’s Mzansi Magic channel.
In the recordings, which have now been released by the paper and are said to have been for a new edition of one of the reality shows, Motaung alleged that Mhlongo broke his ribs, almost knocked out his teeth and once threatened to stab both of them.
He added that Mhlongo has in the past brought in strangers to be part of their sex life, without Motaung’s prior consent.
Mhlongo had remained mum on the allegations by Motaung until he posted a statement on his Instagram account on Friday morning.
In the statement, he denies abusing Motaung but confirmed to one alleged altercation during which both of them hurt each other.
Mhlongo refused to delve into the allegations relating to their sex life, saying this was a matter he wished to keep private.
He added that he would be dealing with the allegations legally while the couple finalises their divorce.
Meanwhile, Mhlongo has taken a step back from two of his biggest gigs.
Metro FM and MultiChoice released statements respectively, saying they had come to an agreement with Mhlongo regarding his work with them.
He is said to have asked for time off from his radio show at Metro FM, while he will no longer be making live appearances for the 17th season of Idols, which is currently airing on Mzansi Magic.
Mhlongo will continue to appear in pre-recorded episodes of the talent search show until the end of August.
However, Motaung maintains that Mhlongo abused him and confirms they’re getting divorced.
This is the statement that Motaung issued:
