The Queen actor Sthembiso “SK” Khoza is under fire after he has been accused of being a woman-basher by his now ex-fiancée Ayanda “Mandy” Hlongwane.
Shaka as he is popularly known seems not to be taking his acting skills to real life. In what appears to be a case of life imitating art, Khoza – who plays the role of bad boy Shaka Khoza on Mzansi Magic drama The Queen – cannot shed his on-screen image.
This is the second time he has been in trouble with the law this year (though on separate matters) and his third court case since featuring on a prime-time TV show.
Mandy Hlongwane opened case of assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm against SK Khoza last weekend. SK Khoza allegedly physically assault Mandy after she questioned him about impregnating another woman while they were planning their wedding.
The incident allegedly took place at the couple’s apartment in Fourways, last Friday. SK Khoza is said to have broken the furniture and Mandy has suffered bruises on her face as a result of the attack. Mandy has called of the engagement, allegedly.
National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Phindi Mjonondwane said the actor was released on bail following his court appearance on Wednesday.
“Bail was fixed at R1 000. His next court appearance is on October 27,” she said.
The Kempton Park-based beauty accused Khoza of using her as a punching bag after she questioned him about allegedly impregnating another woman while they were planning their wedding.
“The physical abuse happened while they were still together. Her face was bruised by the beatings she took when she found out he had got another girl pregnant and questioned him about it,” said a source close to the couple.
“Instead of answering her about the other girl’s pregnancy, he beat her up. That’s why they broke off their engagement.”
Another source close to Hlongwane alleged the incident had taken place at the couple’s apartment in Fourways, Johannesburg, last Friday.
“SK trashed furniture in the process. He hit her and bruised her face,” said the individual.
Ever since SK came out and admitted to emotionally abusing his partner, it seems things have been very sour between the two lovebirds. There’s been a number of signs that showed SK Khoza is such a toxic person.
SK Khoza has now deleted every photo of him and his girlfriend. He has deleted everything about them.
