In case you missed the story, Sunday World newspaper published an article at the weekend, that Bonang Matheba was allegedly due in the Johannesburg Specialised Commercial Crime Court last Monday for allegedly being involved in tax fraud.

Bonang’s publicist Davin Philips said she wasn’t “summonsed to appear,” and did not appear on charges of tax fraud, claiming the Sunday World’s report contained numerous “factual errors”. Queen B is now reportedly suing the Sunday publication R10 million for “damages done to her good name and character”.

Commenting on his own tweet, Mphela wrote: “My thoughts: Moghel should have just let this go. It’s tabloid and responding or suing only gives the story traction. Furthermore, I dont think it is wise for her to be waging a war with journos. Her influence is waning & she needs positive coverage to remain at the top (sic).”

Matheba then responded to his comment, and wrote: “Go f*** yourself! Honestly.”

Phil Mphela went on to say: “If this lawsuit is legit, I think it is ill-advised and will only open Bonang up to more scrutiny into her personal affairs. Contrary to what many believe, even with the advent of social media, journos still have massive impact in a stars’ careers in SA (sic).”
