Actress Zoe Mthiyane does not appreciate having her daughter's name being dragged into petty fights. According to The Citizen, Zoe wants Pretty Samuels-Morake to not believe just anything told to her by her husband Lebohang 'Lebo M' Morake.
It all started when the former Generations: The Legacy actress spoke to Sunday World and said it's difficult to co-parent with Lebo M compared to her other baby daddy Robert Marawa.
Following her interview, Lebo M's wife Pretty Samuel's-Morake slammed Zoe and insinuated that she is an absent mother.
She said they live with her 7 year old daughter because of the drunk driving incident which saw her ex fiance, Lebo, gaining custody of their daughter.
“I would like to categorically state that we have no co-parenting plan with Zoe Mthiyane,” Pretty said in part.
Speaking to The Citizen, Zoe slammed Pretty Samuels and warned that she should not believe everything and anything said by Lebo.
“This is a sensitive topic involving my minor child. I would like to caution the current wife against believing and acting upon the false narratives that her husband has created about myself and others as a means to continue the abuse I escaped seven years ago,” the public quoted the actress.
Zoe told Sunday World that it's impossible to co-parent with Lebo.
“Parenting with Lebo is impossible. We had to find ways to cope with that fact. However, I am lucky to have had intensive therapy, valuable advice, and support to lean on. I practice gentle parenting as I learned early on that each child is born with their personality.”
Pretty in a statement said Zoe is a liar, “In my efforts to maintain the dignity of my family, but most importantly to protect the wellbeing of our kids, I have chosen to remain silent. But given the severity and nature of these allegations, I can no longer remain silent whilst my children are attacked and associated with such defamatory statements in the media,” reacted Pretty as quoted by The South African.
“After the tragic accident, the courts gave my husband custody of the child and ordered Mthiyane to undergo rehabilitation and therapy so that she may one day be considered a fit mother. Our daughter has been in my husband’s care for the past few years and her primary residence is with us,” she concluded.
In the same interview , Zoe said co-parenting with ex-boyfriend, sports commentator Robert Marawa, was good because of the respectful co-parenting relationship they have which was made possible by the help of their loved ones.
“I would describe parenting with Robert as respectful. Our families and close friends have played a major role in creating and maintaining a safety net around our son, and for that, I will forever be grateful. He is lucky, ” Zoe told the publication.
