As the legal battle between TV personality Boity Thulo and Bujy Bijwa continues to get messier and messier. Boity is allegedly demanding a whopping 1 million rand from the flamboyant former Metro FM radio DJ. The settlement relates to assault charges she filed against him. According to City Press, Boity is also asking for R200 000 to cover the medical expenses she incurred after the incident.

Early this month, Boity filed a case against Bikwa for assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm following an altercation that turned physical between them at a hotel in Midrand. She sustained facial injuries after a bottle of alcohol was thrown at her face. Boity was hospitalized after the bitter spat, and now she demands Bujy take responsibility for assaulting her.

In a twist of events, Bujy also filed a counter-case of assault against Boity saying both of them were guilty. “I also opened a counter case of common assault against the culprit for physically attacking me and after being in pain from the injuries I sustained for seven days, being held in police custody, I have received medical attention and have filed my medical records towards my counter case,” he shared.

In his now deleted statement, Bujy said Boity insulted him, his surname and told him that he is nothing. "I was verbally abused and told that my surname has no relation to who I am and because of that, that is why my career is going nowhere in terms of growth, in fact, "what is it that I do in the media industry because I am actually nothing!" he said.

Bujy reveals he too was physically assaulted, "being kicked and punched while being told that "I am a man, I am a man," I must take it. The pain of suffering of having to let a woman abuse me verbally and physically while trying to contain myself and holding her hands to stop was not enough until witnesses managed to defuse the situation."

However in one of his many statements he issued, Bujy apologized and said he could have handled the situation differently " I would like to apologize to everyone for my reaction in the situation. I regret that it happened and also accept the occurrence as unacceptable behavior, and I could have handled the situation differently and not have it escalate to the levels  it has from either myself or the said complainant and I do not condone any acts of violence by any person including myself."

So will he settle the R1.2 million Boity is demanding? Well, Bujy told TshisaLive recently he feels that it is unfair for Boity to demand money from him, considering both of them were at fault.

“I need to take accountability for her scars but now, she opened a case, I got arrested...the worst part is that she sent a letter demanding R1m and I'm just like, so you don't want to resolve this. Where will I get R1m when both of us are at fault?” he asked.

Tweeps have reacted to Boity's demands and they are bot happy.

@MphoMolepo_ "Boity’s claim is not in line with acceptable standards. R500k is the number!"
@Riccardo_Elle " Where will Bujy get 1 million from Lol Boity’s dlozis didn’t tip her before making such demands."
@THATONZI "He must pay for what he did. Teach him a lesson!! If he can't pay he should be arrested."
