The owner of a luxury multimillion rand property he had been renting in Lanseria, Johannesburg, has filed proceedings in the High Court, forcing Lion King producer and composer Lebo M to pay a hefty R700 000.
According to the publication, Elizabeth Leonora Alexander isn't joking around and wants Lebo M, whose full name is Lebohang Morake, to pay for four months' worth of lost rental income as well as damages to the Blair Athol Estate property, which fans mistakenly believe is his. Morake was forking out approximately R65 000 a month for the home.
Lebo M has been charged with causing substantial damage to a rental property.
It doesn't stop there: Lebo M's now-former landlord accuses him of leaving the property in disarray. Alexander reports that the producer ruined many objects in the house, including curtains, a gas braai, and the router, before leaving abruptly in July.
Morake also consented to be charged interest for any rental arrears that were past due, according to Alexander. She has lost R260 000 in future rental income due to the premature termination of the lease, the R65 000 rent he failed to pay for July, and the over R68 000 agent listing fee she paid to market the property because she was unable to find a new renter for that period.
