Thewife of well-known soapie star has re­vealed ex­plo­sive de­tails of their failed mar­riage, claim­ing the “abu­sive and er­ratic” star cheated on her with both men and women.

Gloves are off be­tween the cou­ple as the TV star’s wife re­veals in an af­fi­davit un­savoury shenani­gans in their mar­riage, in­clud­ing al­le­ga­tions of his past as a drug dealer and fugitive of jus­tice.

The cou­ple, who are es­tranged, can­not be named as they share two mi­nor chil­dren and are in the process of a di­vorce. They are­fight­ing for­cus­tody of their two daugh­ters and the wifede­posed theaf­fi­davit to seek full cus­tody of the kids.

She said the man has been the great­est stum­bling block to their di­vorce be­ing fi­nalised by ig­nor­ing any let­ters from her lawyers.

In her af­fi­davit, she said in 2016 be­fore they started di­vorce pro­ceed­ings, the ac­tor had a three­some with two women in his ho­tel room in Dur­ban. “He had and still has mul­ti­ple af­fairs. He is still send­ing ex­plicit pic­tures to other women and posts nudes, sex­ual stim­u­lants and pro­motes sexon a reg­u­lar ba­sis on so­cial me­dia.”

The ag­grieved wife also slapped him with a pro­tec­tion or­der two weeks ago be­cause she said she feared for her life.

She claimed in a sworn af­fi­davit­that­she is­con­cerned­about his al­leged abuse­of­drugs an­dal­co­hol. She de­scribed his be­hav­iour as un­sta­ble, er­rat­i­cand a dan­ger to her mi­nor chil­dren.

Fur­ther­more, the wife re- vealed ex­plo­sive de­tails that the star, who once stayed in the United States for a few years, fled the coun­try when he was fac­ing drug-re­lated charges.

“There is a war­rant of ar­rest for al­legedly deal­ing in co­caine andhe left­Amer­i­cato avoid­be­ing ar­rested,” thewife told Sun­day World.

She fur­ther made star­tling claims that she also dis­cov­ered that her hus­band was bi­sex­ual and­had, in fact, cheate­donher with both men and women.

The news­pa­per is in pos­ses­sion of a war­rant of ar­rest which in­di­cates that a case of “Pun­ish­ment for pos­ses­sion of a con­trolled sub­stance with the in­tent to man­u­fac­ture, sell or de­liver a cer­tain drug un­der sched­ule II” was opened against him in 2003.

The wife said he was be­ing treated for a med­i­cal con­di­tion and al­legedly com­bined his pre­scribed med­i­ca­tion with drugs in­clud­ing mar­i­juana and al­co­hol.

“Dur­ing May 2017, my daugh­ter found a pipe used to smoke mar­i­juana out­side the bath­room win­dow. My daugh­ter then asked me why her fa­ther was smok­ing drugs. He grits his teeth while speak­ing and seems to be us­ing some type of speed or co­caine.”

The af­fi­davit, with nu­mer­ous sup­port­ing­doc­u­ments, dis­closed hehad nu­mer­ousaf­fairs dur­ing their mar­riage. The wife said­his con­stant­sex-re­lated posts on so­cial me­dia were ir­re­spon­si­ble.

She said­he­often came home to fetch their two chil­dren at their mar­i­tal home while drunk and sev­eral times she had to refuse to hand them over. Ac­cord­ing to the wife, he is re­fus­ing to pay main­te­nance.

She al­leged the hus­band re­cently ac­cused her of steal­ing R3 000. “The mon­ey­was a gift from my mother for my birth­day. How can he ac­cuse me of such a bizarre thing”.

“[He] ap­pears to be un­der fi­nan­cial strain and my con­cern is that he owes money to the peo­ple in the drug trade.”

In as­worn af­fi­davit, her­friend col­lab­o­rates her as­ser­tion that the star shows up at their home drunk to pick up the kids.

“One Sun­day af­ter­noon, we re­turned from church to find him play­ing vul­gar rap mu­sic very loudly, danc­ing out­side the house while the chil­dren sat in the car. On two oc­ca­sions he came to church drunk to pick up the girls.”

In another sworn af­fi­davit, a se­cond friend told po­lice that the ac­tor came to their house on Au­gust 8 to pick up the girls.

“One of them was­not feel­ing well and she could not come down­stairs and asked her daddy to come up­stairs. How­ever, [he] losthis cooland shout­edhe is the head ofthe fam­ily and the kids must lis­ten to him.

“He stormed out of the house with one of his daugh­ters and bumped into the neigh­bour’s car­which­was parked­out­sidein the es­tate. [He] is ir­re­spon­si­ble when it comes to his chil­dren.”

The star said a brief “no com­ment” when askedto re­spond to the al­le­ga­tions. “I deal with my is­suesin the­court­sof lawun­like oth­er­peo­ple whowantto winin the court of pub­lic opin­ion.”

The wife ob­jects to sexy pic­tures of him­self that he posts.
