Joost wanted to hit Kurt over Amor

Johannesburg – A fist-fight nearly broke out between former Springbok captain Joost van der Westhuizen and singer Kurt Darren when Van der Westhuizen confronted Darren and Amor Vittone one night in her house.

"Joost stormed in on us and he was furious," said Darren, who celebrated his birthday on Sunday.

"I reminded him that he asked me to drive behind Amor to see that she got home safely after a function we both attended, because she had a little too much to drink."

Darren celebrated his birthday with mixed feelings.

'I don't even find Amor attractive'

"I am very disappointed that I am being involved in Joost and Amor's public battles and their preoccupation with publicity. Yes I was with Amor in her house in Dainfern in Johannesburg that particular night that Joost is talking about in the latest issue of Huisgenoot. The couple was still together, but Joost was at a 'guys night' in Brits.

"On arrival at her home, she asked if I wanted to quickly look at her and Joost's awards. The maid, Amor and I went to the room concerned when a very angry Joost stormed in. Can you believe that he's now, after all these years, saying I embraced Amor? And that while the maid is watching?

"I don't even find Amor attractive and I want absolutely nothing to do with them."

Requests for comment

Vittone, who hasn't responded to requests for a comment from Beeld since Friday, appointed her third lawyer last week in her divorce with Van der Westhuizen. Selwyn Shapiro said on Sunday he can't comment.

"All I can say is that from our side we are trying to accelerate the divorce."

Robert Klinkenberg, Van der Westhuizen's lawyer, said the delay "is certainly not our fault".

Van der Westhuizen is in Dubai for a fundraising campaign for J9, his charity organisation.

    He lacked confidence when it came to relationships and was insecure in his relationship with Amor. He did what he liked to make himself feel good (taking drugs and messing around) and because of his infedelities, he was insecure of his marriage and thought everybody was hitting on Amore.

      He is lucky Bill Clinton isn't our president!

      Tilly - 2012-02-20 13:15

      Do you know them personally and/or read their minds? No-one knows the truth but them and maybe Amor was/is not the "innocent" victim she makes out to be. I recall her as quite the flirt but assumptions are dangerous and quite honestly this is none of anyone's business.

      Omrisho - 2012-02-20 14:52

      if your partner was happy to have an affair with a married person (maybe yourself) prior to you starting a relationship with that person, you think that is a good foundation of trust to build on??

      leonardus.breedt - 2012-02-20 17:20

      Oh boy, this rugby player always put GOD in his sentence and what come out later?He is just a lair he proved it.You think any mother will be happy to leave there children with him.Where drugs can be use is a bad example for the children or the children can find the drugs then what?

      @DaveB, nobody cares about these hillbillys

    Retweet from Zelda la Grange (General comment): "People who create their own drama, deserve their own karma." Maybe this is applicable here.

  • MikeBrassellSA - 2012-02-20 10:49

    Hey Kurt,, I believe you. Why won't my wife believe me when I told that one???

  • Susan - 2012-02-20 11:06

    Amor,thinks the sun rises and sets up her A.., why can't they move on get a life...

      Kevin - 2012-02-20 18:22

      Must say I have gone off Amor big time.

  • Anton - 2012-02-20 11:07

    "On arrival at her home, she asked if I wanted to quickly look at her and Joost's awards." HAHA , good one Kurt! I will try that on my wife and see if she would mind if I went in to a womans house to check her 'awards'. Classic!

      Louise - 2012-02-20 19:59

      Yeah, it's not their 'etchings', it's their 'awards'! hahahahahahahahahaha!

  • Lesly - 2012-02-20 11:11

    Frankly Joost and Amor deserve each other - BUT there children don't deserve them as parents!!!! disgusting behaviour from both of them

    oh that's hilarious! Gee, I wonder who would've won???

      vanetia.mentor - 2012-02-20 12:06

      Haha...Like that scene from Hot Rod (still one of my favourite movies ..Fyi) "so who do you think would win a fist fight...A Taco or a grilled cheese sandwich"

    Common!! money can't buy class

  • martin.vandermerwe - 2012-02-20 11:42

    Personally I agree with Kurt, she’s a dog man!!!!

  • Paula - 2012-02-20 11:48

    I wonder who is worst of Joost and Amor.Attention and pity seekers are both of them.

  • Gerda - 2012-02-20 12:00

    I think Joost must stop with the mud slinging. Sour grapes because Amor wants to divorce him and now he wants the world to take his side and pity him. Amor is keeping out of the limelight regarding their personal lives, Joost should do the same and both finalize the divorce asap.

  • Mouldy - 2012-02-20 12:03

    Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!

  • mabeeden - 2012-02-20 13:29

    Amor - just go away.

  • Cheslyn - 2012-02-20 13:37

    Hahaha -she still has time to be proud of her awards at that time of the morning...Sit jou hanne op jou kniee as jy wil, en brul, as jy wil! Flippen morons these celebrities! Kurt-Dharin, and A-Whore Vitonne lol

      Tammy - 2012-02-20 13:42

      sirkus narre die hele klomp van hulle

  • lynda.schenck - 2012-02-20 13:51

    Kurt lives his life out of drama and public "indecencies". I feel sorry for him being brought into this by the idiot Joost. And its not like the event was even recent!! Joost - climb back into your hole!

  • Louise - 2012-02-20 13:54

    Why do the media think we want to know about these to has beens. as far as I am aware the public out there are not interested in them and their goings on. I have heard so much from people that know her and she is coarse tart.

  • deborah.bergstedt - 2012-02-20 14:01

    3rd Lawyer - is it because the first 2 did not & would not believe her lies. Both these people need to just get on with their miserable lives without trying to involve other people. Accept responsibility for your lives/actions & MOVE ON....Amore u r 1 sad B if u wnt' even let the father of yr children c them, gee c m - he is allegedly "dying" 4 goodness sake!!!!

      Zimbobwe - 2012-02-20 14:22

      No the first and second lawyer didn't check her award properly now she wants the third to check it because Darren was caught off guard checking her award....brrrrr!!! Remember the award needs to be constantly checked otherwise it gets irritated and spit bile.

  • Wt - 2012-02-20 14:18

    He is human, he has made a mistake...let each one who hasn’t made a mistake in their lives pick up the first stone to throw at him

      Omrisho - 2012-02-20 14:57

      sure he made a mistake, so did she and one can move on from that, but they keep allowing their dirty linen to be displayed in public, and that is not acceptable or worthy of forgiveness, for crying out loud, they are "adults" supposedly trying to set an example for their children, they both need to grow up

  • Wt - 2012-02-20 14:21

    Joost side stepped Amor to get to Kurt and when Kurt saw he had no chance he decided to span die seile!

  • Evan - 2012-02-20 14:25

    And Joost, seeing Kurt embrace his wife under the 'guise' of looking at her awards, hit him as hard as he could...that would have been newsworthy, not nearly hit him. The saga continues...wait for the next episode.

  • Dianne - 2012-02-20 14:56

    OH PUUULLLLEEEEZZZZZZ......Kurt has the most beautiful wife. I am sure he would not be interested in a bitter, money grabbing Amor. If Amor comes on TV I switch off. She is so self centred and has an ego the size of the milky way!

  • Dudley - 2012-02-20 15:14

    Come on VdWesthuizen sort your divorce out amicably ... if only for your kids' sake : and Amor drop useing the kids to get at the man who fathered your child (remember how you enjoyed making them together?) so let Joost enjoy his children whilst he is still able to do so.

  • Idont - 2012-02-20 15:24

    do you really need a reason to want to hit Kurt? I dont :)

  • Signal - 2012-02-20 15:24

    Good Lord but these van der Westhuizens are getting to me. Enough already, you two are not the be all and end all you think you are.

  • Richard - 2012-02-20 15:28

    If two people no longer love each other then get divorced if that is what you want to do but really do you have to make it a public spectacle. Do they even remember that there are children involved that need to face this at school. Grow up guys. Have a private wedding and then a public divorce, really !!!!

  • Dianne - 2012-02-20 15:56

    She had a little too much to drink and she was that IS a good example. WOW...... What a stupid woman!

  • Sunet - 2012-02-20 15:56

    Kyk, ek was lekker vies vir Joost en oor sy mannewales. Maar ek begin al hoe meer en meer dink Amor is nie so onskuldig soos wat sy voorgee nie. Ek dink Joost weet sy tyd is min, en hy gee nie om het baie om te verloor. Net jammer die kinders word nou as pione gebruik. Ai, Amor...jammer jy is so baie op die voorblad vir die verkeerde redes. En nie omdat jy gewild is as sangeres nie!

      Towtruck - 2012-02-21 00:04

      Wens hy wil die "min tyd" wat hy oor het gebruik vrede te maak met mense wie hy te na gekom het. Wens eintlik sy tyd was minder want hy het wragtag nog genoeg tyd om media toe te hol met elke stukkie stront!

  • meredith.r.pollock - 2012-02-20 16:21

    Amor was obviously hoping something would happen between them otherwise she wouldn't have invited Kurt in. Lucky for Kurt the maid was there otherwise goodness knows how this story would have turned out. And Joost is just as dof, if he suspected something why did he ask Kurt to follow her home... Duuuuhhhh Amor & Joost are both pathetic and both need to GROW UP!!!!!

  • Nicola Erasmus - 2012-02-20 16:29

    The retired rugby hero catches the second love of his life, a mediocre, struggling singer almost doing a duet with a multi-platinum crooner...Soon afterwards (or maybe shortly before) a former flame kidnaps and drugs him and then films him making love to her evil twin. She blackmails him, runs to the papers and our hero falls from grace. Ofcourse he gets diagnosed with a rare terminal disorder and falls in love with his doctor... I've seen this arc before, *yawn*, new storyline please.

      karen.glautier - 2012-02-20 17:28

      Wow Nicola, :-) put like that we should be doing a soapy out of this. We could make millions $$$$$$ I'm telling you!

  • herschel.jones1 - 2012-02-20 17:16

    No guys, please keep this going...we should make a sitcom out of will be bigger than Two and a Half Men...its a classic...I never stop laughing...what will the next twist be??? SA's very own Pathetic and The Stupid!!!

  • christen1956 - 2012-02-21 14:36

    Joost face fact ,, you married Amor for her money and looks and wanted her as a trophy next to your side,, apart from that,, Kurt is not interested in a fight or other women as he has the prettiest women on Gods earth next to his side...
