Thuli P And DJ Maphorisa Trolled Over Joint Statement
The couple basically informed the public in a joint statement they had handled their relationship issues in private yesterday. They pleaded with people to stop uttering any more disparaging comments about the tragedy.
“Being public figures, it is unavoidable that the public, media, and their respective commercial partners all have an interest in this matter. Accordingly, they have decided to release this joint statement as the official and exclusive statement in the matter.
“The matter has received mixed public attention, causing a great deal of emotional stress on both parties involved. It is on this basis that the parties have elected to resolve this matter privately through their respective management and legal teams. Consequently, Phongolo has since withdrawn the charges laid against Sekowe.”
Their statements continue, “Both parties have noted with concern, the disparaging, defamatory and (in some instances) untrue remarks, statements and reports emanating from the incident and view these in a serious light. The parties reserve their rights to individually pursue legal action against people making defamatory and/or false statements in relation to this matter.”
With their statements, social media users are having a field day. While some have anticipated Thuli’s action, others are astonished by it. Forever Yena started trending with tweeps taking digs at the couple:
