Christall Kay rose to fame on first season of Real Housewives of Johanneburg and she has become a household name with a legion of fans. The singer is currently involved in a messy legal battle over her Kayalami mansion and she wants it back. According to Sunday World, businesswoman Kholeka Bubu, had originally intended to purchase her R8 million mansion, but things didn't work out as expected.

Bubu reportedly paid a deposit of over R4 million into the agent's trust account, from which R1 million was transferred to Christall for moving purposes. Bubu had promised to pay the remainder of the deposit within eight months when the reality show star moved out of her home last year. After failing to settle the deposit on time, she was ordered to pay the remaining monies in three months with a R750 000 extension fee added but she still failed to pay it.

As a result of the delay, Christall had to incur additional expenses and she is fuming. “These funds were necessary as I was required to incur further expenses while the transfer of the property was delayed by her. If she failed to make payment on the date set for the final payment which was the 19th July 2021 she would have to forfeit those funds as I had to carry significant expenses while the property transfer was delayed,’’
In an alleged move, Bubu served her with an unapproved bond saying it did not matter whether she paid the mansion in cash or by bond but. Her bond was deemed unapproved as it is not what they had agreed on.

“To make things worse, she was in arrears of three months arrears occupational interest until just the other day. I really regret trusting her and letting her move in so soon before final payment. I can’t believe that she is doing this.’’

“I have had to incur great costs paying for two properties. This is unacceptable and I have vehemently opposed her application to try to hold me to the agreement which she breached," she said.

Christall said she has suffered a significant loss over this battle as the matter has even involved her lawyers. The reality show star says eviction proceedings are currently underway to get her out of her mansion as she is occupying it illegally. “Eviction proceedings have started in the Magistrates Court to get her out of the house in the interim but everyone knows how long the legal process can take.”

“I have had to brief attorneys and advocates at great cost. I just can’t wait for this all to be over! This is causing a significant cash flow issue. My bills keep piling up (including the legal fees) all while she continues to enjoy living in a mansion," she said.
