In an emotional video, Amanda hit back at Jub Jub and said that he physically abused her for two years.

Amanda denied Jub Jub's claims that he "smashed her" and said she was afraid to leave the relationship because he made her feel she couldn't dump him.

“No, you didn’t smash me, you raped me, you forcibly opened my legs, forced me myself for two years, and made me believe that there was no way out. . The most painful part of all of this was that I was a virgin and I told him at the time. I told Jub Jub at the time that I was a virgin and I planned to be a virgin until the time I got married,” said an emotional Amanda.

She continued: “So it is not true. I didn’t leave because I saw a picture. I left because he tried to kill me and I have always been afraid to leave because of the treats that were made but at that moment where he tried to kill me I knew the very thing I was afraid of, which was dying… I knew was meant to happen that day and I actually got away.”

Amanda added that she eventually sought help. “When I got away I went to the police station to try and open a case of abuse and rape and attempted murder. The police officer said to me to go home and think about my decision because he is so sick and tired of women coming to him with their boyfriends and husbands only having to take them back,” she said in part.

It is believed that the matter is now in the hands of Amanda du Pont's legal team.

To return to Moja Love, it was reported that Jub Jub was ordered to apologise to Kelly Khumalo, whom he alleged that she uses muthi. It was either that, or he could lose his job on the channel.

Jub Jub eventually issued a statement apologising to Kelly Khumalo for the statements he made in the interview. 

"....I would like to apologies for the distress, or hurt I may have caused her following not only the aftermath of my interview on podcast and chill with Mac G but also any other public opinion," he said.

"There is no way I can take back the missed years in his life. However, given the opportunity by you, I know that I can be a good father to him..."

"You are the mother of my son, and I have a lot of respect for you. In me trying to set the record straight about me being an absent father to my son or me not caring or loving him, a lot of wrongs happened in a short space of time during that interview," read Jub Jub's statement.

Jub Jub, who has not made any public appearances since the interview with Mac G recently announced on Instagram that he'll be dropping a new track this Thursday evening with legendary producer DJ Cleo tired Amaswid.
