There is trouble in paradise again between Zodwa Wabantu and her Ben 10 Olefile 'Ricardo' Mpudi. This time, Sunday World alleges that they have called it quits and their break up has turned nasty. 
Zodwa apparently admitted that their love has run out as they have both applied for restraining orders against one another. 
It is reported that Zodwa and Ricardo went to the Randburg magistrate’s court's domestic violence offices to apply for restraining orders. 
It is alleged that Zodwa broke up with Ricardo and asked him to move out from her house in Fourways. She went to court after he apparently refused to leave the house. 
Zodwa does not want to leave her Ben 10 alone in the house when she is attending gigs as she no longer trusts him. 
The reason for Ricardo to apply for a restraining order is not known. 
Confirming this to the publication, Zodwa said she does not know why Ricardo would want one because she has not violated him. 
“They gave me a form and gave him a form too to fill. I have not completed the form, because after returning home from court, I slept because I was tired. I will complete the form and submit it on Monday,” she said. “He is here, even now. He is in another room and I’m in another room [of the house]....I guess I will only know when the [restraint] order is served on me.”
This is not the first time the two have involved authorities in their beef.

City Press, once reported that Zodwa called the cops on Ricardo in February when he refused to pay for his own Uber. He had asked Zodwa to cover him but she refused. And a fight ensued. 
The ride was from Montecasino to Zodwa's house. It was then alleged that when she refused, Ricardo became violent and started slurring insults in full view of the driver. The publication further alleged that he threatened Zodwa and "forcefully demanded money from her."

"She came to the station asking police to help her as she was afraid that her boyfriend might physically harm her. So, the police went to her residential area and managed to calm the situation down. Later the boyfriend’s family was called and they apologised to Zodwa, telling her that he is not a violent person,” said a police officer to the publication. 

But Zodwa said she was safe and was unharmed by Ricardo.

When things were great between the couple, Zodwa used to always gush over Ricardo and promised to be by his side. 

They had an open relationship and she revealed this on lasizwe's YouTube show that Ricardo has/had a girlfriend when they started out. ”Right now at home, there is a Ben 10. He is not famous, but he works. I have been in lockdown with him,” said Zodwa. “When I go out to party, my boyfriend has a girlfriend so I don’t care… but he has been living with me but he hasn’t moved in yet,” she added.
