“IT GIRL” Bonang Matheba is livid after Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune brushed her thigh and ended up kissing her when they met and greeted.

In a statement on Monday, Matheba expressed dismay over the alleged incident, which she described as “barbaric”, and urged women to speak out when they encountered such actions.

As Matheba’s spokesman, Sylvester Chauke, was sending this statement, 5FM’s DJ Euphonik, who is Matheba’s boyfriend, allegedly confronted Khune.

Some social media sites had posts of a recording of DJ Euphonik’s angry voice, shouting and asking Khune what he wanted from Matheba.

There is also a woman’s voice that sounds like Matheba’s, trying to calm Euphonik down, while Khune continues to apologise profusely.

At the end of the recording, Euphonik is heard warning Khune that if he doesn’t have respect for Minnie (Khune’s girlfriend, Minenhle Dlamini), he must not dare think he can do the same to “my Bonang” because that wouldn’t be tolerated.

Chauke would not divulge where and when the incident occurred, but confirmed it did not happen at the ceremony in Sun City, where the celebs had gathered for the Samas on Monday.

Efforts to reach DJ Euphonik were unsuccessful as his cellphone rang unanswered, and although Khune posted on Twitter that he “doesn’t care about people who hate him”, he too couldn’t be reached.

The incident has caused a stir on Twitter, with some blaming Khune and others saying DJ Euphonik was violent.

Matheba is understood to have opened a case against her boyfriend in the past for badly beating her up at his house. - The Star
