The charming and talented Katlego Maboe used to be the face of SABC3’s morning show a while back. He was successful in all accounts- he had a thriving career, a beautiful family and a great social life. Then things started to go downhill in 2020 and the perfect facade fell.

Here is the whole story about what went down between Katlego Maboe’s wife and himself, their lengthy court battle and what the former television presenter is currently up to.

Monique Muller was Katlego Maboe’s wife and mother of his child. She is reportedly a fashion model who has modelled for several big fashion events including the Mercedes-Benz fashion week and she is also a businesswoman who was born in 1990.

Not much is known about her background and what she did before fame, but she came to the spotlight in 2020 after she aired her laundry in public.

According to sources, Katlego Maboe and his gorgeous ex-wife met sometime in 2016 and although the circumstances under which they met have not been provided, it is alleged that they got married privately shortly after they met.

For the next couple of years, Katlego Maboe and his wife made one of the most attractive celebrity couples in Mzansi. They would attend high profile events together looking all glam and they would share the cutest photos of the two of them spending time together and they looked perfect and happy together.

On 26th June 2018, Katlego Maboe’s wife welcomed their first and only child together- a beautiful son called Phoenix Katlego Maboe and the young happy family lived together in Johannesburg.

In 2020, Katlego Maboe’s wife took to social media to expose the media personality after she shared a video where she accused him of infidelity and infecting her with an STD and abuse and went on to get a protection order against Katlego Maboe.

As a result of the allegations, Katlego Maboe’s reputation and career suffered. He lost his job as the host for SABC3’s Expresso Morning Show and lost his deal with OUTsurance. He was also removed from the nomination list of SAFTA for best TV presenter of the year.

Addressing the cheating and abuse allegations, Katlego Maboe admitted to having been unfaithful to his wife- an act which he regretted. He also denied ever abusing her or any other woman saying that he was against abuse of any sort to women and children.

In 2021, Katlego Maboe took to the law courts to demand an apology and a retraction of statements or compensation equivalent to R1 million from his ex-wife Monique Muller, her brother Seth Muller, SAFTA and Women for Change for causing him psychological and reputational damage.

After a lengthy battle,  the court ruled in favour of Katlego Maboe absolving him from domestic abuse allegations that his ex-wife had accused him of in January 2022.

In a statement that he shared on his social media accounts, Katlego Maboe celebrated his victory. The statement pointed out that legal action was still underway for Seth Muller, Women For Change, and SAFTA. 

Responding to the court ruling, Monique Muller simply pointed out through her Instastories that Katlego had not won anything.
