Mandla ‘Mampintsha’ Maphumulo is reportedly set to appear before the Pinetown Magistrates Court on Wednesday on assault charges for allegedly assaulting his partner Bongekile ‘Babes Wodumo’ Simelane.
Various reports have alleged that Babes Wodumo is set to withdraw the assault charges she opened against Mampintsha after he allegedly hit her in the bedroom of his Westville home two months ago.
Babes Wodumo recorded the assault on her Instagram page and this resulted in the arrest of Mampintsha.
The music admitted to beating her, but blamed her for starting trouble.
“Everything is good between the two of them, they get along,” he said. “Regarding whether if Babes has withdrawn the case against Mampintsha, unfortunately I do not know about that,” said Lindo ‘Dogg DBN’ Buthelezi, Mampintsha’s manager.
Interestingly, Babes Wodumo’s father says her daughter will ‘never go back to that man’.
“Over my dead body! My daughter will never go back to that man,” Welcome Simelane told the Daily Sun.
“Just because they recorded a video together doesn’t mean they are romantically involved. They’re working together. Their relationship is that of colleagues, not lovers,” he said.
