She refuses to give up.
It all started when Rea claimed to be a celebrity in the media. Ex-boyfriend rapper Kiernan 'AKA' Forbes was exposed to cocaine by Bonang Matheba.
Bonang promptly filed him with papers when the video aired in May 2021, with her lawyers demanding that he apologize or face legal action.In the podcast, Rea and podcast partner Blvck Steph had been speaking about AKA's late fiancé, Anele Tembe, who died after falling from the 10th floor of a Cape Town hotel.
"Scoop told us that AKA is on cocaine and Bonang is the one that got him into cocaine," Rea said in the video
Rea and her podcast companion Blvck Steph were talking about AKA's late fiancée, Anele Tembe, who perished after falling from a Cape Town hotel's 10th storey.
In the video, Rea says, "Scoop told us that AKA is on cocaine, and Bonang is the one who got him on cocaine."
The podcaster was given an opportunity to retract and apologise publicly for the viral video but did not fulfill the request.
As a result, the reality star took matters to court and opened a case of defamation against Rea Gopane.
In a letter addressed to the podcaster, lawyers of the media personality said the allegations were "defamatory, hurtful and were deliberately intended to humiliate and undermine her reputation".
Bonang's lawyers were ordered to seek an R500 000 payment in 10 days if he did not apologise, failing to do so would result in a summons.
Since then, the two have been involved in a legal dispute, with the media celebrity tweeting in January "The courts are open for business. It's time to get down."
But Rea seemed unfazed and hit back.
“The incomparable Bonang Matheba is still mad she took a shot and missed last year. Thanks but I don’t need your good luck. See you soon, mom," he wrote.Taking to social media after the case, Bonang shared that she had won. She didn't specify which case but fans are sure it's the defamation of character one. In a series of tweets, she tweeted, "I won", "#RunMeMyMoney", "R300 000"
"The next five years 'bout to be wild fun for him!" Bonang said in response to one of her followers who stated the podcaster might not even have R30 000.
