Court order vs court order in Mbau/Crous saga
The circus between socialite Khanyi Mbau and her multimillionaire ex-sugar daddy, Theunis Crous, played out itself at the Randburg Magistrate's Court yesterday.
Prosecutors refused to place their case on the roll. Crous will approach the court today to get an interdict to prevent Mbau from speaking to the media.
Crous was arrested on Tuesday, after allegedly violating a restraining order she had against him.
Mbau, 24, who is a self-confessed "platinum-digger" known for her flashy lifestyle, was also arrested late on Tuesday night for violating a counter court order taken against her by the businessman.
Mbau, who has a penchant for luxury cars such as the Lamborghini Gallardo, and Crous, 51, were released on R1000 bail each at the Sandton police station on Tuesday, and were warned to appear in court yesterday.
The Randburg court yesterday said investigations into both cases were incomplete. The cases would be placed on the roll once investigations were complete.
But Mbau, who had been informed that the matter had been struck off the roll, angrily said: "So, I was unlawfully arrested?"
Crous is now seeking a order compelling her to leave him and his family alone. He wants Mbau to stop talking about him on television, and giving newspaper and magazine interviews regarding him.
He said Mbau has been talking about their relationship on DStv's Channel Vuzu for the past seven weeks and was recently paid R16000 by a Johannesburg magazine for talking about their affair.
