A Durban woman who divorced her husband after he had an extra-marital affair is suing his "mistress" for the emotional distress caused by the break-up of their 28-year marriage.
Helena Greyling divorced her husband, Jochemus Greyling, last year after she learnt of the affair between him and Beverley Walker, a secretary at Barlow World in New Germany.
Now, Greyling is suing Walker for R80 000 in damages for the emotional and personal distress as a result of the adulterous relationship.
In court papers, Greyling said Walker had at all times been aware that Jochemus was a married man.
She said Walker wrongfully and unlawfully alienated the affection of her husband by "enticing" him to desert her (Greyling) and commit adultery.
