Designer accuses Dineo Ranaka of owing him money
Dineo Ranaka apparently owes her co-designer and friend Abram Mophokane some money. According to Sunday World, Abram, who's also known as Linx Poe, has accused the TV personality of being a "user" and "evil witch".
Linx told the paper that he struggled to raise money for his mother's funeral in August because Dineo allegedly didn't want to pay what was owed to him. Dineo refused to comment. She told the paper: "I have nothing to say about Linx. Whatever he has said to you, print it. I know why he came to you and I'm not going to entertain it."
Linx claims that Dineo owes him a salary for working on her label LuvDR and for his contribution to her Vuzu reality show, Dineo's Diary season 1 and 20.
The paper is reporting that Linx had lodged a claim with the small claims court to receive monies owed to him by production company New Vision, producers of the show.
He said: "I signed a contract with them for the reality show. They only paid me half and I've been waiting for the rest of the money for more than three months now. They are saying that they are waiting for monies from her cos she is responsible for paying talent. I can't really be angry with them," he said.
He told the paper that he is not the first designer to walk out on Dineo. "I never thought she would do the same thing to me. It's not about the money, but the way she treats people. She didn't even come to my mom's funeral."
