BO­NANG OPENS CASE AGAINST EU­PHONIK

- NGWAKO MALATJI and MZWANDILE KABIZOKWAK­HWE

‘ She lost a lot of money as she had to can­cel some of her mid­week shows ’

MZANSI’s “IT” girl Bo­nang Matheba was al­legedly beaten black and blue by her tear­away boyfriend DJ Eu­phonik in a noc­tur­nal love squab­ble on Tues­day.

Sun­day World can re­veal that Matheba ob­tained a pro­tec­tion or­der against Eu­phonik, real name Themba Nkosi, at Rand­burg Mag­is­trates’ Court on Wed­nes­day and has since dumped the muso.

The sul­try Live pre­sen­ter has also opened a case of as­sault against the 5FM DJ.

Eu­phonik was to be ar­rested on Fri­day af­ter Matheba sub­mit­ted a med­i­cal re­port to the po­lice, but ap­par­ently they hadn’t yet done so by the time we went to press last night.

Matheba ’ s publi­cist Simphiwe Ma­jola con­firms that Matheba ap­proached the court and made an ap­pli­ca­tion.

Matheba caught the eye of our moles when she ap­peared at the court hid­den be­hind her dark sun­glasses on Wed­nes­day morn­ing.

She was joined by her lawyer Bon­gani Khoza, who waltzed with her into the do­mes­tic vi­o­lence of­fice, where they filled out the pro­tec­tion or­der form and then left.

Khoza says: “We con­firm that Matheba in­deed ap­proached a court and made an ap­pli­ca­tion. The mat­ter is pend­ing be­fore a court of law and is thus sub ju­dice.

“While we re­alise and ap­pre­ci­ate the fact that Matheba is a me­dia per­son­al­ity we put em­pha­sis on the point that the mat­ter is a per­sonal mat­ter and as such we de­mand that Matheba’s privacy be re­spected.”

Sources who caught a glimpse of the in­dict­ment say Matheba claims she paid Eu­phonik a visit at his West­dene crib in Jozi on Tues­day night.

An ar­gu­ment erupted be­tween the two love­birds. Matheba stormed out of the house and left with­out clos­ing the main gate be­hind her.

The ebul­lient Eu­phonik then tailed her to her up­scale apart­ment in Hyde Park. He found the door to her house locked and al­legedly gained en­try through a win­dow.

“He then asked her why she did not close the gate to his house. She told him she was too lazy to close it,” says the source.

Taxed be­yond en­durance, Eu­phonik al­legedly un­leashed a bar­rage of warm klaps on her. It is al­leged he started kick­ing her like a foot­ball.

Matheba, who is also a DJ at YFM, was res­cued by neigh­bours who heard her screams.

Sun­day World can re­veal that Queen B, as she is known in show­bizz cir­cles, shot a 3rd De­gree pro­gramme on Fri­day heav­ily plas­tered with make-up to hide the blue eye.

“She lost a lot of money as she had to can­cel some of her mid­week shows as a re­sult of the beat­ings.

“This man has been abus­ing her for a while but she was scared to go public be­cause she thought she would up­set her spon­sors,” says the source.

The A-list cou­ple are not new to con­tro­versy. They have been at each other’s throats over ac­cu­sa­tions and counter-ac­cu­sa­tions of cheating.

Last year Eu­phonik was heart­bro­ken when he re­ceived in­for­ma­tion that the ice-queen was melt­ing in the warm hands of Kaizer Chiefs mid­field dy­namo Simphiwe Tsha­bal­ala.

A few weeks later we pub­lished a story that Matheba was heart­bro­ken af­ter dis­cov­er­ing that a Dur­ban woman was gravid with Eu­phonik’s child.

But Eu­phonik de­nied mak­ing the woman preg­nant.

Pressed for com­ment over the lat­est in­ci­dent, Eu­phonik says:

“I don’t know what you’re talk­ing about. ”

And Sun­day World yes­ter­day re­ceived a let­ter from the DJ’s lawyers threat­en­ing le­gal ac­tion against Sun­day World if the story was pub­lished.

“Should you pro­ceed to pub­lish defam­a­tory and/or false state­ments, our client re­serves his rights to take ap­pro­pri­ate ac­tion against you..., ” read the let­ter in part.
