Monique Muller’s brother Seth Muller has responded to reports claiming TV presenter Katlego Maboe is in the process of suing him, his sister and two others for reputational damage, among other things, to the tune of millions.

This comes after Netwerk 24 reported that Katlego had allegedly sent letters of demand to his ex-girlfriend Monique, Seth, a non-profit organisation for gender-based violence called Women For Change, and the SA Film and Television Awards (Safta)  to retract and apologise for the statements made against him which led him to suffer “psychological and reputational damage”.

Monique told TshisaLIVE she preferred not to comment at the moment and said she was yet to receive the alleged  letter of demand.

Seth said he is aware of Katlego’s claims.

“My sister hasn’t received it yet. Maybe they sent it to the wrong email or something. I received the letter. They emailed it to me,” he told TshisaLIVE.

Seth is adamant he did nothing wrong and said he has no intention of honouring Katlego’s demand. He said he was prepared to go to court about the matter.

“I didn’t read the whole thing. I’m not even interested in what he’s saying. I showed it to my lawyer and he was also not too bothered by it. The letter says he wants me to apologise and to retract my statement but he’s not gonna get either out of me ever.”

“They are threatening me with a lawsuit. I’m not going to retract or apologise for anything. I didn’t do anything wrong so we can take it to court and sort it out in court.” 

TshisaLIVE reached out to Katlego and his PR for comment  and publicist Lerato Maleswena of 20 Across said that their client would not be giving any comment to the ongoing matter.

"My client will not be issuing any further comments and/or statements in respect of the subject matter that is currently under discussion."

Life turned upside down for Katlego after a video of an argument with his ex-girlfriend and mother of his son went viral on social media late last year.

The video allegedly revealed Katlego was entangled in a cheating scandal. It later emerged that Monique had levelled allegations of abuse against him and obtained a  protection order.

Their situation landed the pair on the social media trends list for weeks, and eventually resulted in the media personality being stripped of his roles on the Espresso Morning Show and with Outsurance.

Katlego released a statement on his social media denying the allegations.
