Last week, all of South Africa was buzzing after DJ Maphorisa was arrested for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend Thuli Phongolo. The pair topped trends lists as Maphorisa was released on bail shortly before Thuli withdrew the charges against him. In light of the hundreds of reports on the matter, the couple issued a statement asking for their privacy to be respected as they deal with the matter.

Social media users have slammed both celebs and their statement in various online posts.

Former Generations The Legacy actress Thulisile Phongolo spent most of last year denying that she was in a relationship with musician DJ Maphorisa — real name Themba Sonnyboy Sekowe.

While she did a good job keeping their romance out of the public eye for a while, the cat was let out of the bag after she had him arrested for assaulting her.

The pair appear to have decided to sort out their problems outside of a court room and have issued a statement asking social media users to respect their privacy.

“The matter has received mixed public attention, causing a great deal of emotional stress on both parties involved. It is on this basis that the parties have elected to resolve this matter privately through their respective management and legal teams. Consequently, Phongolo has since withdrawn the charges laid against Sekowe,” reads the statement in part.

Many appear to see the letter as a slap in the face from Thuli who they had previously defended.

The actress was praised for opening the case and not keeping the matter under wraps because of Maphorisa’s celeb status.

Here are some of their comments:

“Ma’am please don’t bore us. Next time keep your matters private,” wrote one person while another said:

“Sisi all I can hope for is that you don’t go through this again, it will be hard for people to support you next time around.”
