Cape Town – South African actress Thando Thabethe has described her relationship with former partner Lunga Shabalala as a messy affair and said that he became obsessive.
The 947 presenter made headlines after she applied for an urgent protection order against the actor, whom she accuses of “following” and “harassing” her, The South African reported.
Thabethe alleged that Shabalala had been acting strangely, following her and breaking into her house. The urgency of obtaining the order came because she received threats over her TV show.
“I fear for my safety as I do not know how he will react once the show is aired. He is constantly stalking and harassing me, and I don’t want the situation to escalate”.
According to City Press, Thabethe said her break-up with Shabalala was “messy and dangerous”.
