What do court documents say?

The plaintiff, whose identity is confidential, alleges Euphonik shirked his financial duties towards their children. She’s distressed, alleging unequal treatment as Euphonik supports children from other relationships but allegedly neglects theirs.

“I pause to state that, although I am aware that maintenance must be dealt with separately and at a correct forum, the respondent, who is hugely a successful international and local DJ, and who earns and owns significantly more than I do, pays only school fees for our two children.”

The court papers.

The baby mama’s demands

The mother of Euphonik’s children petitions the court for R12,500 monthly per child, seeking a 5% yearly increase or alignment with the South African Consumer Price Index from 1 January 2024. She also requests continuous financial aid until the children achieve independence, covering education and extracurricular costs.
