However, the couple has denied the rumours, despite a police officer reportedly confirming that they were called in to escort Letoya.

According to Letoya, she and Lebohang are happily married and no assault took place.

“I have initiates here at my home. So my home is very sacred and peaceful. We respect ancestors. If I backtrack to the date, I have sisters who look exactly like me. It could have been my sister Gontse.”

In a lengthy Instagram post on Sunday, Letoya furter slammed the reports.

“Frankly I’m getting tired of journalists from @thesundayworld calling me and my wife about one thing and then writing stories that have absolutely nothing to do with what they even called about.

“How is that ethical? You don’t even stop to think how your tacky write ups will affect our families, our work and our brands. What happened to investigating a story?

“So basically I can make up a lie about someone who’s life I want to destroy and some journalist will happily write about it just because it’s possibly going to sell papers that we have to admit no one is interested in buying anymore,” she wrote in part.
