Cape Town – DJ Euphonik is due in court on Thursday after his ex-girlfriend, SABC1 Live presenter Bonang Matheba, laid three charges of assault against him, reports Sowetan.

Euphonik, who is facing the charges of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm, domestic violence and malicious damage to property, reportedly handed himself over to police on Wednesday.

He was released on R3 000 bail and is due to appear in the Randburg Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

Sunday World reported on Sunday that Euphonik and Matheba were involved in a domestic dispute after which Matheba laid criminal charges and obtained a protection order against him.

Euphonik has denied the charges and on Sunday released a statement condemning domestic violence against women, saying: "I was shocked to see the allegations of assault levelled against me in the tabloids. Those allegations are not true and I am seeking legal advice to clear my name."

Matheba's spokesperson Simphiwe Majola has declined to comment because "this matter (…) is pending before courts".

      Or perhaps he is just truly "mixing his beats".

    Very shameful! Why would this girl lie about being beaten up by Euphonik? Instead of admitting it and seeking help, he's denying it and making it look acceptable to women abusers out there... Take responsibility for your actions especially if you're in the public eye, coz it goes far beyond just you... It's actually quite disgusting. I hope Bonang doesn't do what many other abused women do: drop charges, then get back together with a monster!
