Amor: Enough lies have been spread

2012-09-13 10:00
Cape Town – Singer Amor Vittone has had "enough" and wants to set the record straight regarding recent allegations made by her estranged husband, Joost van der Westhuizen, reports heat magazine.

In an exclusive interview with heat magazine, Amor says that she has "tried to stay away from all of the negativity" but that she has now "had enough".

Die Burger recently reported that Amor is planning to file a court order against Joost to stop him from slandering her in the media.

This comes after Joost, who is suffering from the degenerative disorder motor neuron disease, claimed in intimate interviews with Carte Blanche and Huisgenoot that Amor is keeping his kids away from him.

"Enough lies have been spread and I can't carry on with the ridiculous assumptions that people are buying into (…) These are the facts. I want people to know the truth," Amor told heat.

Read the full interview in the 14 September edition of heat magazine.

      No really!!! SO WHAT!!! Who cares selfich woman!!!

      jrheeder - 2012-09-13 11:15

      Wonder how much shes being paid by heat for this Exclusive scoop?

      grant.callaway.50 - 2012-09-13 11:36

      Has nobody noticed what a blatant ADVERTISEMENT this is for Heat??? This is NOT a news article! News24 - please keep your adverts to side-banners!!!

      sandra.johnstone.56 - 2012-09-13 17:53

      Such an evil, selfish and self absorbed woman. The man is dying, for goodness sake. Where is her empathy for a dying man and her understanding that her children should be allowed to spend as much time as possible with their dad. Her ugliness is showing big time in her face....hell but she looks awful.

      susan.paul.330 - 2012-09-14 08:19

      Amor when will you shut your pie??????

      richard.hipkin - 2012-09-14 09:52

      Having friends who have been through divorces, it's always the chick who uses her kids as ammunition to get back at the man.

      nina.ignjatov - 2012-09-14 11:40

      I have no time for women who keep the kids away from there fathers!!!! What has happened between the husband and wife has nothing to do with kids, they are still his kids!!!! I remember Amour stating what a wonderful father he his, and now :/? Do not use your kids to get back at him, it is just destroying the kids!!!

      nina.ignjatov - 2012-09-14 11:42

      And to add to my previous comment, what goes around comes around!!! Never break up a marriage as it will happen to you!!!! Sl@g

  • billyandrew.croucamp.5 - 2012-09-13 09:25

    Dont really feel sorry for either of them... She wrecked his first marriage, he cheated on her, did drugs and whored arround... it's the old saying, " you reap what you sow"

  • maryclarice.pelser - 2012-09-13 09:32

    Urgh please! Its pathetic. What goes around comes around. They both had it coming their way. She wrecked his first marriage, did she now really think he is not going to cheat on her. And she is also not an "angel" and as innocent as she claims to be. Once a cheater always a cheater.

  • shirley.steenkamp - 2012-09-13 09:38

    Amor-I have 1 question for you. Do you realise what you are doing to your children??? No matter what your issues with Joost are-he remains their father. You wont get sympathy from me. Grow up,move on and do whats right for your children or they will hate you later!

      atholl.canterbury - 2012-09-13 19:03

      Tragedy struck the village ... one of the two mothers had rolled over in her sleep and crushed one child to death. The two mothers fought over ownership of the remaining child and confronted the King to make a decision. 'I say that we slice the child in half - then each mother can take and equal half.' .... the King said. The one mother who crushed her child said 'yes I think it's fair' The other mother said ' no, no no - please don't slice the child in half - if that's the case then I'll rather give my half to her' So the King said 'the one who wanted the child sliced in half - this is not your child - the other one is the true mother - she must take the whole child'.

  • irene.buthelezi.1 - 2012-09-13 10:11

    I don't blame her one little bit. Everyone is sympathetic to Joost because he's an ex-rugby player and is dying. Very easy to gather up the pity and support for him. Even though they are both at fault, why should he be portrayed as the poor hard done by male and she must just lap it up and allow him to spread whatever cr@p he wants to about her? Call her what you like, but what's fair is fair.

      anna.koen - 2012-09-13 11:03

      Agree with you 100%.

      pierre.walt - 2012-09-13 19:47

      How can you comment every day? Using company internet?

      gerda.vanrensburg - 2012-09-13 21:07

      Irene I totally agree with you. He is misusing the people's sympathy to get at Amor and every time she tries to defend herself everyone is jumping on her with crude remarks. I don't like any of them but Amor is doing the right thing to get a gag order against Joost's slandering.

      John - 2012-09-13 23:37

      Out of curiosity (seriously, no sarcasm) what slander? I dislike both of them but honestly this is desert toilet reading to pass the time to me. I saw the carte Blanche interview, and the worst he said was that he wanted to see his kids more often. That's it. The rest was about his disease, how he copes with it etc, nothing about Amor. For whatever his done, this disease is a huge price he IS paying. Facing your own mortality definitely gives you a different perspective on things and forces you to reprioritise. My opinion is, it would be difficult for him not to be sincere with death a certainty around a very near corner. I don't think him an intelligent man enough to use the illness - it would be too evil even for him. The greater likelihood is that he is acting in desperation using every means possible to see his kids as time is running out for him quickly - he is not taking money, fame or anything else with him once he dies.

      clive.kihn - 2012-09-14 12:32

      Maybe you're right, Irene, but the man IS dying. Surely she could gain a few brownie points by showing just a tiny bit of compassion? After all, she knew his reputation when she married him.

  • shirleyann.louw - 2012-09-13 10:33

    Dont you think we have had enough of you and Joost? Keep your lives private and short out our troubles. In all this is a very sad story!!!

  • michael.barns.1 - 2012-09-13 10:39

    Mercedes Benz should be ashamed of sponsoring her, there are a lot more deserving people that need sponsorship than this thing.

  • jan.naude.399 - 2012-09-13 10:46

    Heat Magazine? Wow! What a reliable source. I suppose aliens are also involved.

      charlotte.vandongen.3 - 2012-09-13 20:05

      Whahahaha!!!! best comment so far!!!

      Any probing involved? :)

  • cathy.g.ingram - 2012-09-13 10:48

    Why does everyone say she wrecked Joost's first marriage? It takes two to tango and she couldn't do it on her own. These two need to keep their private life just that - private!

      christopher.collings.9 - 2012-09-13 23:12

      perhaps because its a fact although it does indeed take 2 to tango :)

  • vicky.vangemert - 2012-09-13 10:48

    6 of one and half a dozen of the other... Don't really understand why the got divorced - they are so alike it is amazing - like 2 peas in a pod. Both probably short of cash....

  • kobus.hattingh.5 - 2012-09-13 10:49

      annette.h.botha - 2012-09-14 14:50

      Joost is n regte jannie jammergat. Wens hy wil sy mond snoer. So minder Amore reageer so erger raak sy snot en trane dal. Daar is duisende mense wat baie sieker is as hy en ek ken n paar maar hulle wil nie bejammer word nie want hulle het hulle trots. Moet ons almal saam met die ou huil?Hy het nie net een keer vir Amore verneuk n ie. Selfs toe sy swanger was het hy rondgeloop. Sy hethom geglo toe hy alles ontken het en sy het by hom gestaan. Ek sou hom wragtag ook gelos het. Onthou net hy het dit begin.

      Is Amor the original Khanyi Mbau?

  • richard.r.wright.7 - 2012-09-13 11:23

    Really girl, what they gonna do, lock him up? You should be charged for not allowing access to the children. Dont think they (kids) wont carry some resentment towards you when they older. reap it.

      jean.tredoux.5 - 2012-09-13 11:27

      Or maybe the kids are just fine with not seeing him cos daddy was screwing around with another woman, makes one think what he was doing when he went to play in other countries...

      cherri.pye.5 - 2012-09-14 13:14

      jean, yep like she was screwing around with him while he was still married to his first wife. Karma is a bitch.

  • anne.myers.756 - 2012-09-13 11:28

    Yeah! Heat magazine, there is news! The fact that he actions of your newsmakers are so low, so downgrading, so nauseating, so filthy, so embarrasing-to-others, so unkind, so not gracious, so devoid-of-any-objectivity and compassion means a few more miserable copies of your miserable rag sold. What are you planning for when this sorry sage ends because it's destined to end? Where are you going to get pathetic victims with their smut-equity outweighing their talent and integrity airing their pathetic little emotions to get free airtime for their pathetic little sagas? Why am I bothering? Only lack of your sales will stop you finding these pathetics so let's thumbs up for that, rather!

  • jimi.vanderwesthuizen - 2012-09-13 11:29

    Now I have to buy Huisgenoot and Heat to get both sides of the story. Can't you just put an edited version in Rapport?

  • debbie.carrdonald - 2012-09-13 11:33

    Amor is so pathetic. I have not heard Joost slander her. All he said is he would like to have more of his children. I am certainly not a Joost fan, but she is really too much.

  • cheslyn.francis - 2012-09-13 11:37

    Amor, what a bore!

  • robyn.bester.54 - 2012-09-13 14:59

    Amor I don't think you quite understand what Jooste is going through. This is a terrible disease our family suffered through the terrible trauma in 2001 when my Aunty was diagnosed of this disease. Can you for one minute just think about other people other than yourself. I will continue to Pray for you. What Jooste needs right now is support.

  • gert.malan.54 - 2012-09-13 15:21

    If she just wants the truth to come out, why not say it during an open conference on News24. Why must it be an exclusive HEAT interview. Oh wait, I forgot about her image.

    As much as I feel for Joost, and I really do, I have to say that these two are as bad as each other. For goodness sake, stop airing your dirty laundry in public. Your kids have to go to school with children who WILL say things, as the topic will be discussed around various dinner tables within their homes. Not only that, your kids will grow up to read what was written, and know that their parents spoke badly about EACH OTHER. Keep out of the media BOTH of you. Have respect for yourselves if not for each other, and mostly think of your children. Truly sad affair.

  • madelein.vandermerwe.37 - 2012-09-13 22:26

    It is such a pity that when 2 people (long long ago... loved each other very much), can't stand one another when getting a divorce. What happened to true love?? When you love some one it is easier to forgive, but you see, in my opinion I don't think they ever loved each other. Because love can overcome most things. She was nothing until she married Joost (a lotto girl who's contract was never extended..) She must be grateful for the life she has had with him when it was still good. Thank God for the 2 beautiful children they have, and most of all forgive him, AND herself, because it takes 2 to tango, and men only looks around, when they are not satisfied @ home...

  • lionel.defrontignac - 2012-09-14 04:03

    I don't care what the truth is; all I see are two (you would think adult) people abusing their children in the media - very shameful. Shame on Joost and Amor, and shame on the media for pandering to this.

  • niel.phillips.7 - 2012-09-14 06:03

  • doreendgough - 2012-09-14 09:24

    I think Joost (who is an adulterer and a liar) should get an award - Victime of the Year or Manipulator of the Media. He betrayed Amor and his children in an appalling manner and now sees an opportunity to turn the tide in his favour - once again through his dishonesty. I am so tired of this story.

  • waltvh - 2012-09-14 10:33

    Have all of you forgotten the fact that Joost used to visit prostitutes and he used drugs? So Amor should have stayed with Joost so that she can get HIV or some kind of STD? When Joost was visiting the prostitutes and using drugs he wasn’t worried about his children!! Why wasn't he then with his children? Why is he now suddenly worried about his children? If Joost got a letter from a doctor that states he is healthy enough to look after his children then he is clearly not as sick as he said a few months ago… The Afrikaans community is so predictable… An Afrikaans man can do anything to his wife or family and he will never get the blame… In what universe is it okay for man to visit prostitutes and use drugs? Put yourself form one minute in Amor’s shoes, if your husband did all these filthy things would you still have been at his side? The fact that Joost is now “sick” doesn’t make all these filthy things obsolete!!

  • wbswanepoel - 2012-09-14 10:45

    Sick of all of this. Jooste is an ass and just because he is ill does not change his character. He may be sorry and has been forced to accept his faults and make the world feel sorry for him. He ruined his family's life with his adultery and lies. Amor adored him and gave him a second chance and he blew it. Now leave her alone .... she has a career which he is also destroying - at the end of the day won't these kids be proud of their parents .... joke... He also screwed up his last marraige....

      clive.kihn - 2012-09-14 12:34

      I think Amor adored his celebrity status; she knew what she was letting herself in for when she married him.

      cherri.pye.5 - 2012-09-14 13:20

    die waar heid is baie eenvoudig...amore is eenvoudig nie marketable sonder Joost nie. Never was, never will be. Sy is satdig maar seker besig om irrelevant te raak en DIT is wat haar vang. Ten spyte van al sy mannewales is/was Joost n Bok legende en in n land waar rugby n godsdiens is, sal die Joostlegacy vir altyd voortbestaan.Met of sonder Amore...ongelukkig kan dieselde statement nie oor die 'Amare legacy ' (WTF) gemaak word nie. Al hoe Amore n comeback kan maak, is as sy en Joost reconcile...soos wat Steve en Janine gedoen het. Sy het geen ander opsie nie, omdat haar status en celeb value maar aan die dun kant is.... Vraag is, sal sy en Joost ooit weer reconcile?? Volg debat op FB:

  • julie.vanniekerk.3 - 2012-09-14 11:18

    I agree with Amor and support her! It can not be safe for her children to be with Joost if he is even unable to lift his cup of coffee and what about driving his car??? Is he OK with that? I doubt it!
