Bonang and Euphonik in 'beating' saga
Johannesburg - Strange headwraps under the bed and unfamiliar weave strands on her pillows marked the beginning of the end of Bonang Matheba and Themba Nkosi’s love affair.
In interviews City Press held with friends and close acquaintances of the YFM DJ and her 5FM-jock former boyfriend, it emerged the two had been having problems for some time.
One source said Matheba was "in tears" at a party a few months ago, proclaiming "DJs make rubbish boyfriends" and telling other female guests to "never date a DJ".
According to another friend: "In December, Bonang said she had broken up with Themba because she used to come home from her trips abroad to find doeks and strands of weaves in her bed. She said she would never date a DJ again because they will 'show you flames' and disrespect you."
The two are now involved in court cases at the Randburg Magistrates' Court.
In early June, Matheba, 25, was allegedly beaten up by Nkosi, 28. He is reportedly facing three charges – assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm, domestic violence and malicious damage to property. Broke a window
According to reports quoting court papers, Matheba infuriated Nkosi when she went to his house in Westdene, Johannesburg, to collect her things and left without closing the gate.
He followed her to her Hyde Park complex, where he broke a window to gain access.
Heat magazine reported that Nkosi pulled Matheba’s weave, hit her with his cellphone and wrestled her to the ground. She was saved by neighbours who heard her screams and took her to hospital.
Nkosi handed himself over at the Bramley Police Station and is out on R3 000 bail.

, Matheba’s lawyer Bongani Khoza is said to have provided evidence that Nkosi wanted to "destroy" the presenter and FHM model.
"You and your family have made this a war and if and when it taints my brand I’m not going to stop until the truth comes out so maybe hire a hitman to take me out because it’s going to get real," read an SMS Nkosi allegedly sent to Matheba.
Since the allegations came out in early June, Nkosi has seen his reputation take a knock, especially on Twitter.
A couple of years ago, Matheba had a highly publicised break-up with rapper Slikour on Facebook.
Those in entertainment circles claim she cheated on Slikour with Euphonik, then cheated on Euphonik with one of her former Live colleagues as well as a Kaizer Chiefs player.
Nkosi, too, has had his fair share of scandals as he was rumoured to have impregnated a girl from Durban.
Recent reports linked him to a young beauty queen, after he generously funded one of her trips.
Matheba is reportedly "taking time out" in New York at the moment.
