Christall Kay Plans To Take Legal Action Against ‘RHOJ’ Co-Star Gugu Khathi Over Alleged Altercation — Gugu Claims She Acted In Self-Defense After Christall Assaulted Her First!

Real Housewives of Johannesburg star Christall Kay has confirmed to TshisaLIVE that she plans to take legal action against her co-star Gugu Khathi. 

If you recall, Kay claims that Khathi allegedly punched her in the face while filming the third season of the 1Magic hit reality series.

Reports about the fight, which allegedly happened more than four weeks ago at a club, came to light last week after cast members were informed that the reality show had been canceled by the network.

According to TshisaLIVE, due to the show being axed, the cast was free of the non-disclosure agreements attached to it.

Christall claimed the assault was caught on camera. “Gugu Khathi is the one who punched me in the eye, resulting in a black eye. She did this when I was sitting and there was no threat to her. I have evidence to prove this. She (Gugu) is scared about what she has done and is trying to make out a case against me,” she told TshisaLIVE.

The “Wonder” singer said that she plans to lay charges against Gugu and another RHOJ cast member who she alleges “aided and abetted” the “attack” on her.

Meanwhile, Gugu has told followers on Instagram that she acted in self-defense. In the comment section of a post, Gugu did not deny allegations about a physical altercation but claimed Christall had assaulted her first.

Responding to a follower who asked why she beat up another woman, Gugu replied, “ushaye kuqala” which translates to “she hit me first”.

Gugu denied the altercation between her and Christall was the sole reason behind the cancelation of the series and said that her legal team was working on it.

The news comes after an insider told Sunday World that Kay was allegedly beaten up by her co-stars Brinnette Seopela and Gugu Khathi during an argument at a club in Pretoria last month.

According to the eyewitness, Seopela and Khathi left the club and went to their cars to change their heels into sneakers and continued the attack.

The altercation was stopped by production staff and security guards who threatened to call the cops, and Kay had to be taken to the hospital for treatment.

Sources reveal that Khathi is notoriously known for fighting. “Don’t be fooled by Gugu’s glam, she can be a straatmate. She once attacked my friend in a club, accusing her of flirting with DJ Tira,” the source told the publication.

The attack on Kay resulted in the show’s cancellation. The source claims it all began when Kay made nasty comments to Seopelo, prompting Khathi to jump into action.

“The two decided to take things to the street, beating the poor girl like she had taken one of their man,” according to the source.

A reliable source from MultiChoice said the production company had to hold production for a month to allow the injured Kay to heal.

Also, the cast had to be interviewed and all cast members allegedly said they did not feel safe working with Khathi, whom they consider to be a bully. They also claimed that Seopela is cold and mean.

“Either she’s badly influenced or she thinks she’s bigger than the brand” added the source.

Meanwhile, Kay released a statement about the incident. “I deny any charges against me. Gugu Khathi is the one who punched me in the eye, resulting in a black eye. She did this when I was sitting down and there was no threat to her,” said Kay in a statement courtesy via Sunday World. “I have evidence to prove this. She is scared over what she has done and is trying to make out a case against me. Charges are currently being laid against her,” added Kay.

Khathi also released a statement regarding the attack on Kay. “I can confirm the incident happened, but what shocks is that fact that out of all the people in the club, how can Christal choose my name, there were too many people in that club, why does she pick me, besties don’t do that to each other,” she said.

Philly Khubeka, who is the head of PR and Publicity at M-Net’s Local Entertainment Channels, confirmed that the show has been canceled as a result of Kay's attack.

“Season 3 of Real Housewives of Joburg has been discontinued at this time. This is due to unforeseen circumstances experienced during the production of the show,” Khubeka said, according to Sunday World.
