Yes, ladies and gentlemen the saga unfortunately takes another nasty turn with Babes Wodumo and Mampintsha's domestic violence case.

This morning, March 8th, Babes Wodumo tweeted the following:



Babes and Mampintsha have been hogging headlines ever since video footage of him slapping her several times went viral. He has since been arrested on assault charges and then was released on R2,000 bail.

Mampintsha later laid a counter charge of assault against Babes and offered up a "tell all" version of his side of the viral video on uKhozi FM after being released on bail. Speaking to journalists outside court on Tuesday, Mampintsha admitted to hitting Babes and alleged that she also beat him.

In a statement shared on Twitter, Babes claimed Mampintsha had access to her social media accounts and was posing as her to make comments on his own Instagram posts.

The Gqom starlet labelled this as another form of abuse and revealed she would be alerting police.  As part of his bail conditions, Mampintsha was ordered by the courts to ex-communicate from Babes. But if what Babes is true, Mampintsha has found a loop hole in the system.

According to TshisaLIVE, Babes said the following: 

"That's another type of abuse, which we will report to the investigating officer handling our case that is currently before the courts. Mampintsha, please stay away from me. Let us fight abuse, together we can." 

Earlier this week Babes broke her silence on the alleged abuse by reflecting on the brutal murder of her friend Karaba Mokoena by her boyfriend at the time.

"I could have been next! This could have been you, your sister, your daughter, your niece ... We are not victims but survivors," Babes captioned the post.

While the case is being investigated, Babes seems to be fine as she was recently spotted out and about with her friends.
