Author Jackie Phamotse received a swift clap back from Bonang Matheba on Tuesday after she tweeted of the Queen B's famous quotes.

This comes after the Randburg Magistrate's Court ruled that Phamotse - author of the book "Bare" - harassed businesswoman Basetsana Kumalo in a tweet earlier this year.

Kumalo laid a harassment charge against Phamotse after she tweeted: “Just overheard a painful conversation, a Female TV mogul...Pleading with one of my girls to not share videos of her drunk and her husband rim**ng a celebrity boy!!!!!!!!! What the hell!!!! Kanti what kind of marriages do we have now!!! I have asked to see this video (sic).”

Matheba clearly wants to distance herself from the disgraced author and told Phamotse to 'f**k off' with a heart emoji after Phamotse tweeted: "they have to talk about you. Because when they talk about themselves, nobody listens. Bonang Matheba."

While some were wondering why Matheba placed the heart at the end of the tweet, the BForce quickly provided some possible explanations.
