KAIZER Chiefs brand man­ager Jes­sica Mo­taung s ex-fi­ancé

’ Ken Simmons II s re­luc­tance

’ to pay his debt has landed him in trou­ble.

Simmons and his com­pany, Jake Pro­duc­tions, which he co-owns with Mo­taung, was taken to the small claims court for re­fus­ing to pay Steven Turner an amount of R5 144.

Turner ap­proached the Rand­burg Small Claims court af­ter Simmons failed to pay him for in­stalling six ceil­ing speak­ers in his Bryanston house, north of Jozi, in Au­gust last year.

Turner says Simmons asked him to quote for the in­stal­la­tion of au­dio and Dstv equip­ment. It came to R13 788, which was ac­cepted. I supplied and partly “in­stalled six ceil­ing speak­ers in his house I could not com

– plete the work as he was do­ing al­ter­ations to the house,” says Turner.

He says he in­voiced for the job that he com­pleted

– R4 794 for the speak­ers,” he says in his state­ment.

He claims he kept on re­mind­ing Simmons about the out­stand­ing amount, which he al­ways promised to pay. This car­ried on un­til July “2011 when Simmons con­tacted me to ask me to fix a prob­lem he had with one of his plasma screen TVS. On meet­ing him, I gave him an­other in­voice for the ceil­ing speak­ers as he had mis­placed the first one,” he says.

Turner says he fixed the TV and in­voiced him for R350.

He says he last spoke to Simmons about the mat­ter at the end of Septem­ber. Since Septem­ber I “haven t man­aged to

’ get in con­tact with him as he is not an­swer­ing my calls and when I leave mes­sages with his staff he does not re­turn them,” says Turner.

The case was post­poned to next week.
