Katlego Maboe’s ex-girlfriend and baby mama Monique Muller has accused him of putting her in a financial predicament after refusing to pay their son’s school fees.

The Cape Town woman has shared a lengthy rant on her Instagram account in which she also accused the Deal Or No Deal presenter of “economic abuse.”

In 2020, Monique was granted a protection order against Katlego after she accused him of domestic abuse. Katlego was also accused of being unfaithful and allegedly giving her an STI.

In February 2022, the lawsuit was “set aside” by both parties.


Without naming him, Monique Muller called out Katlego Maboe for allegedly refusing to pay 100% of their son’s private school fees.

She posted: “Are there any other 6-figure earning fathers refusing to pay their kids school fees?

“It really be the celebs y’all fight for… that pleads poverty when it comes to taking care of their kids. And literally willing to let their child go without education. But plays ‘Father of the Year’”.

She sarcastically added: “Maybe Deal or No Deal can donate some funds there. I can forward the school’s banking details. Or are his fans willing to donate?”.

In IG Stories that followed, Monique alleged that Katlego Maboe had insisted their son attend a top private school in Cape Town. But Monique claimed that the presenter wanted her to foot half of the bill, which she could allegedly not afford.

She continued: “You earn ten times more than your baby mama. So, paying school fees in full would not affect your pocket. But you insist that half of her salary must go to school fees (we see this all the time with financial abuse in maintenance courts”.

Monique further alleged that Katlego was “hiding” his multiple income streams.

The South African contacted Katlego for comment. None was received at the time of publishing.

Before their romance turned sour, Katlego Maboe and Monique Muller were once one of Mzansi’s cutest celebrity couples.

The couple began dating in 2018 and welcomed their son Phoenix together that same year.

But things went south in 2020 when a video of Katlego confessing to having an affair with a colleague went viral. In the clip – filmed by Monique – Katlego was also accused of giving her an STI.

Monique later accused Katlego of being physically abusive towards her and filed charges  – including a protection order – against him.  As a result of the public scrutiny, Katlego was given a leave of absence by his SABC 3 employer, Expresso. He was also sacked as the face of Outsurance.

Katlego then sued Monique, her brother Seth Muller, and two other parties for R1 million each, alleging they “ruined” his career. He also demanded that all parties apologise and retract their allegations.

In 2022, Monique’s lawsuit was “set aside” by mutual agreement. Katego returned to his position as Expresso host in August, following a bombshell “tell all.”

Katlego and Monique have been on bitter terms since then.
