DJ Maphorisa has reportedly repossessed two luxury cars and expensive wigs, and clothes that he had previously gifted to his ex-girlfriend, citing allegations of infidelity as the reason for his actions. Earlier this year, the DJ was accused by his girlfriend Thuli Phongolo of physically assaulting her in an incident that took place on her balcony in Sandton, Johannesburg.
The cars that have been repossessed include a Mercedez G-Wagon and a Porsche. Phongolo stated in a police statement that the assault occurred during an argument about an incident that took place the previous night during DJ Maphorisa’s performance. She claimed that he became aggressive and physically assaulted her by punching her chest and grabbing her aggressively by the neck.
