Katlego Maboe Wife Monique Muller
Katlego Maboe is married to his wife Monique Muller. They “are currently undergoing an unfortunate and painful separation which is being resolved through legal proceedings,” Maboe said in a statement in October 2020.
In October 2020, news of trouble in the couple’s relationship became public when Muller in a video accused Maboe of allegedly giving her a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that damaged her womb, because of his infidelity. In the video, Maboe sheepishly admitted to having cheated on her with another woman identified as Nikita Murray, a former Outsurance employee.
In another video, Muller claimed that Maboe also physically abused her. Maboe said in a statement: “I was unfaithful to my partner during a very important time of our lives – an act I regret to this day. We are currently undergoing an unfortunate and painful separation which is being resolved through legal proceedings. As you can imagine, separations are quite a difficult thing to deal with, especially with a child involved.
“In light of the comments made against me, I would like to state that I have never abused my partner. I have always and will always stand up against the abuse of women and children – in fact, the abuse of anyone for that matter.
“I had chosen to deal with this matter privately to protect and safeguard our child. At the end of the day, our child is all that matters to me. However, I will leave this to the legal system and let the truth have its day.”
