Zandie Khumalo Gumede is filing for a restraining order against her sister, Kelly Khumalo. This is after Kelly allegedly "ambushed" her during a recent TV interview.

The sisters have not been seeing eye to eye lately and the spat has been quite a public affair, with each of them going to their thousands of social-media fans to air their dirty laundry.

In a since-deleted Instagram post, Zandie claims that while she was being interviewed on celebrity lifestyle show Real Goboza (RGB), Kelly allegedly stormed in with cameras from her reality show and caused chaos.

"Hhaybo guys so my sister KK gatecrashed my RGB interview where me and Lindani were promoting our song Akwanele today, Yazi I fail to take her seriously after today and I just laughed [sic]," she claimed.

Zandie says she's shocked that Kelly had to act in such a manner and alleges the stunt was planned by Kelly and RGB producer Sydney Mekgwe for ratings for both RGB and Kelly's upcoming reality show.

In a previous post, Zandie stated that the sisters had a fallout because she didn't want to be part of Kelly’s reality show. She alleges that this was Kelly's way of forcing her to be on the show.

"So her and Sydney Mekgwe her friend and Real Goboza producer planned an ambush that she will come in while I'm busy with my interview with her reality TV show cameras, same show that I refused to be part of and disrupt my show so her and management or lack of it thereof came up with a way to bully me into their reality show," Zandie claims.

Kelly's younger sister has decided to take this matter the legal route.

"Our lawyers are dealing with both her and RGB management and will be serving both of them but I spoke to my mother and we agreed that tomorrow I'm filing a restraining order against her [Kelly]," she confirmed.

Zandie adds that Kelly needs help as she previously said in her initial post on the sister drama.
