Cape Town - TV personality Uyanda Mbuli has been caught in a reported love triangle with Joyce Omphemetse Molamu.

Joyce first made headlines six years ago when it was alleged that she reportedly had an affair with Minister of Police, Fikile Mbalula. 

Now, the Johannesburg socialite is back in the spotlight after Uyanda alleged that Joyce leaked her private contact information online.

Joyce reportedly posted Uyanda's cellphone number online, after she suspected that Uyanda was having an affair with her boyfriend and businessman, King Maseko.

Uyanda's camp confirmed that the Uyanda: It's On reality star has opened a case of Crimen Injuria against Joyce at the Midrand SAPS.

Her PR manager could unfortunately not elaborate further on the matter, however Mr. Masilo from Masilo Attorneys confirmed his client opened a case of Crimen Injuria against Joyce. He said that they have also sent her a letter containing their demands.

"We sent a letter demanding a written apology for infringement to the right of dignity of our client. We're also contemplating a lawsuit of defamation," he said. 


According to WhatsApp messages between Joyce and Uyanda, that The Juice is in possession of, Joyce accused Uyanda of asking her boyfriend, King Maseko, for money.   

Speaking to The Juice, Uyanda's close friend of 13 years said: "Uyanda uses the words 'darling,' 'my love' and 'babe' with almost everyone she is acquainted with. Her use of these words can never justify a romantic relationship with someone. She has a human right to miss me, and her other friends. This does not justify imaginary love triangles."

The Twitter account Crime Squad also confirmed that Uyanda and King Maseko are childhood friends and grew up together.  

We've reached out to Joyce for comment.
