The former Black Door star took to his Instagram Live to reveal that he has been hospitalised after his partner allegedly assaulted him.

“My fiancée almost killed me. I’d like to say to the women who physically abuse men out there, I’m not keeping quiet. Choice Kate Mathebula beat me, I have injuries all over my body right now,” SK said while lying in a hospital bed in England in a now-deleted video.

SK showed cuts on his arms, ears, a swollen upper lip and bruised neck.

When asked why he was assaulted, he said: “I don’t know. All I know is that I almost lost my ear tonight; I almost lost my finger tonight. I have two broken knees right now. From spatula to tin opener to a knife, now I’m lying in a hospital in England.”

The former The Queen has previously been accused by his ex-fiancée Ayanda Hlongwane of physical assault. However, he denied the claims again in the 16-minutes-long video, saying he has never laid a hand on a woman before.

“I’ve never touched a woman in my life and, if that was the case, I’m pretty sure that when I was going to court for my ex-fiancée, there would have been a lot of other women who would have come forward and said, ‘Yeah, he’s hit me before.’ I’ve never hit a woman in my life; I never will,” SK said.

He added that he wants his current fiancée behind bars.
