INTERNATIO­NALLY renowned South African DJ, Black Coffee, has lashed out at his estranged wife, Enhle Mbali, over claims she made on social media this week.

Mbali took to social media after her applicatio­n for a protection order against Black Coffee was set aside.

This comes after the actress detailed how she was allegedly abused by the DJ.

Black Coffee has denied assaulting Mbali.

After the court’s decision to set aside her applicatio­n, Mbali released a video on social media in which she said she would not be protecting the father of her two sons anymore.

In the four-and-a-half-minute video she posted on her Instagram page, she said that she had been “harassed” and “intimidate­d” for the longest time, and did not feel safe.

The Rockville actress went on to give a detailed explanatio­n of her abuse.

“This man lied in the court of law. He said he went under my arm, as tall as he is, when he knows very well he hit me.

“He struck my hand twice and pushed me into our marital property.

“I don’t feel safe as he is also psychologi­cally messing with my children, which is why I have to stand up and fight for myself,” said Mbali, a minute into her video.

She said that this was the last time she would be silenced.

“To the media, I will be doing a press conference and in that conference I will bring evidence, text messages, absolutely everything that was lied about,” she said.

Following her video, Mbali updated her fans on Instagram, saying that the electricit­y in her home was turned off, hinting that Black Coffee was to blame.

“We gonna shame the devil and enjoy the darkness. Me and my boys,” she said in one Instastory.

In another, she said she was reading a script and doing homework by candleligh­t.

Following this, Black Coffee took to Twitter where he called Mbali a liar.

“Stop lying!!! The lies are too much. I won’t be quiet anymore. The children you publicly claim to be protecting are suffering because (of) your lifestyle,” he said in one tweet.

In another tweet, the DJ said that he took care of household expenses.

“I’ve been taking care of all the household expenses. I take care of all the kids and their school needs.

“On top of the all this, from November I’ve been paying 65K towards you and the kids. After our separation, I got you a fully paid car in your name,” he said.

“From March I have been sending you electricit­y statements which you are aware of.

“Yesterday they cut the lights and you’re here once again creating another narrative that it was because of me.

“Take care of your bills,” he said in another tweet.

Black Coffee said that he had settled the electricit­y bill following Mbali’s videos.

“It brought me so much pain to watch your videos making fun of this situation with the kids, they honestly don’t deserve this.

“I have now settled the electricit­y bill this time just for the sake of the kids.

“Moving forward, pay your electricit­y bill, the kids shouldn’t go through this.”

Since announcing their separation in 2019, the couple have had a messy divorce which has played out in the public eye.

From allegation­s of abuse and millions of rand at stake, fans have had a front-row seat to the drama.
