Tipcee & Babes Told Off By Judge

Tipcee & Babes Told Off By Judge

Apr 24, 2019, 02:25 PM

And we're back to square one people. Yes, Gqom princess Babes Wodumo was in court this  Wednesday morning but she (in true zaleb style) once again delayed her court appearance due to...car troubles.

Anyone else got deja vu?

Read here to get the scoop on Babes Wodumo's arrests

The common-assault case against Bongekile Simelane also known as Babes Wodumo, her sister Nondumiso Simelane and artist Tipcee (real name Thobeka Ndaba) was temporarily stood down after the Simelane sisters failed to arrive on time due to car troubles.

Previously a warrant of arrest had been issued for the Simelane sisters after they failed to appear in court and blamed their absence on car troubles.

When they finally arrived an unimpressed Durban-based Judge Jonck told Wodumo, "If your car is unreliable, take an Uber or a Taxify. This is the last time this court will indulge you. Next time I will cancel your bail and keep you in custody."

Tipcee also received a scolding from the magistrate after she casually strolled into court with an "attitude".

Jonck also asked the trio's lawyer, Sandile Shoba, if Tipcee was "under the influence" after she was fidgeting in the dock.

When Shoba asked Tipcee she proclaimed that she was "totally sober".

The assault charges they face relate to an incident at a guesthouse in Umbilo, Durban, in March. The complainant, who is still unnamed, alleges that she was attacked by the women.

But these young ladies look the least bit concerned with any of these charges against as they were spotted striking a pose for the paps outside the court.


The trio is expected back in court for a pretrial conference on May 16.

They will appear a day after Babes's estranged boyfriend, musician Mandla "Mampintsha" Maphumulo would have appeared at the Pinetown Magistrate's Court. He was arrested for assault after video footage of him slapping the singer several times went viral.

Should these young ladies be a little bit more concerned about how their behavior is coming off to both the public and the judge?

Whatever is going on...Zaleb will keep you posted.
