Passionate Phala scores another baby mama
BAFANA BAFANA striker Thuso Phala has allegedly blasted the reproductive net of another goalmouth – but then red-carded her because she refused to take morning-after pills.
Sunday World can exclusively reveal that Phala, who plays for Supersport United, impregnated Joburg woman Katleho Chantal Monanyi after a night of passion and unprotected sex when he scored behind the back of his girlfriend Eva Matsemela.
Now a papgeld battle is looming between the two after Monanyi allegedly accused the talented footie of being a deadbeat dad.
It is alleged that Phala has not seen Monanyi since she told him that she was carrying his precious cargo and that he is not buying nappies or baby formula.
Monanyi (26) refused to comment on her acrimonious breakup with Phala. “Thuso and I know what happened. We both know the truth. Call me later because my baby is crying,” said Monanyi.
But when we phoned later, she said she was no longer interested in discussing the matter.
Phala dismissed claims he dumped Monanyi and was a chappate’d.
“What I know is that Katleho and I are okay. I don’t understand why people say that I’m not supporting the baby, she’s only three weeks old.”
However, he didn’t deny or confirm the allegations that he did not buy nappies or food for his sprog. “She has those things,” he said.
But his version of events was contradicted by Nana Mashego, who introduced herself as the footballer ’ s publicist, pleading with Sunday World not to publish the story.
“The boy has endorsements and a family to look after, so a story like that would harm his reputation. Please let’s negotiate because I know what happened, ” she said.
Mashego insisted that Phala was not a papgeld dodger. “Is there any man in this day and age who does not look after his kid? Thuso is looking after his kid even though he is no longer with Katleho,” she said.
Mashego also rubbished claims that Phala broke up with Monanyi because she refused to take morning-after pills. “Yes they broke up when she was pregnant, but we don’t know why. Do you tell people why you break up with your girlfriend? They had their own issues and you know how women behave when they are pregnant, it’s hormonal issues.” Two independent sources who spoke to Sunday World said Monanyi told them she had been having a platonic relationship with the former Platinum Stars goal-poacher for two years behind the back of his doting live-in lover.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, a friend said the two fell head over heels in love after Phala confessed his undying love to her.
“They decided to keep things under wraps as Thuso was seeing another woman. One day Thuso threw a party when his woman was away and Katleho went there with her other friends.”
The friend said Monanyi retired to bed early as she was tired and left Phala and other women drinking.
The friend claimed Monanyi woke up later and found Phala and another woman canoodling.
She sulked, the friend said. “She woke up in the morning and left with a heavy heart. They reconciled later after Thuso apologised.”
The mate said Phala and Monanyi had shagged without a condom during one of their trysts.
It is alleged that Phala became furious when Monanyi refused to take the pill and gave her marching orders when she told him she was duffed up after a few weeks.
“Things became worse when Thuso ’ s woman left him after she found out about the pregnancy. He just didn’t want anything to do with Katleho because he blamed her for the departure of his woman,” said the friend.
Another source said Phala told Matsemela after we contacted him that people are spreading rumours that he fathered a child with Monanyi. “He told her it’s not true, He said he only has a five-year-old child with his ex-girlfriend.”
