TV host Katlego Maboe‘s ex-girlfriend and the mother of his child recently said that his lawyer Ellen Louis was “lying and making racist remarks” towards her.

This comes after his lawyer released a statement saying she did not make any contact with Monique Muller in an article published by News24 regarding Maboe’s arrest.

Louis said: I have never communicated with Monique Muller directly, but have requested her family to please stop sending my client messages and to address issues through her lawyer.”

But now, according to ZAlebs, Muller has debunked these claims and came with “proof” via her Instagram Stories.

After the former Expresso presenter allegedly got arrested on the 2 January due to him allegedly being in contempt of court, Muller said she had screenshots that prove Louis made contact with her.

It seems Louis did allegedly attempt to contact Muller on Facebook when she first sent a friend request that Muller ignored.

Louis then sent a message request but Muller rejected it. Louis finally got a hold of when she sent a text message and according to Muller, Maboe’s lawyer made threats and even racist remarks.

“Only starting now with you. You should never underestimate a white female lawyer,” the texts read.

Muller then shared another screenshot on her Instagram Stories and said, “A pathetic excuse for harassing my family. We have a child together, one family member is a contact person. Proof is with the LPC [SA’s Legal Practice Council].”

A social media storm

It is said that Maboe did appear in the Goodwood Magistrates Court on 6 January after Muller accused him of assault. He’s denied the allegation.

Maboe’s representative, Lerato Maleswena, said: “The matter is being heard in the Magistrate’s Court and is currently sub judice. No further comment can be made and any party making comments to the media or publishing any allegations can be held in contempt of court.“

Last year Muller accused Maboe of not only cheating on him with a former OUTsurance employee Nikita Murray, but she also alleged that he transmitted an STD which prevents her from falling pregnant. He says he is fully committed to following the course of the law.

“I’m respecting the legal process and everyone involved and not compromising anyone or bringing anyone into disrepute,” Maboe said at the time.
