It girl Bonang Matheba is considering taking “action” against Itumeleng Khune after he groped her at a popular Sandton nightclub last weekend.

Matheba remains furious at how the Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana goalie rubbed her inner thigh and kissed her on the lips at Sway at about 2am last Saturday morning.

Her management team is now determined to “get to the bottom of” what happened and “not sweep the matter under the carpet”.

Khune, who is in an on-again, off-again relationship with TV personality Minnie Dlamini, accused Matheba’s boyfriend, Themba Nkosi, known as DJ Euphonik, of slapping him in a confrontation after the incident.

But Euphonik emphatically denies this: “Yes, I raised my voice because we were in a club and there’s loud music, so speaking normally would not work. I did not put my hands on him or slap him like he claims.”

He did, however, send Khune an angry text message the next evening after he had tried calling him several times without the star goalie picking up the phone.

“You disrespected Bonang and I wasn’t going to nje sit back and leave it because we are high-profile people,” read the text.

In it, Euphonik tells Khune he doesn’t regret his reaction. He adds, “Even people around you say you get out of hand when you drink.”

The drama began when Khune saw Matheba and Somizi Mhlongo in the club’s VIP section. Khune hugged them, but while greeting Matheba he allegedly put his hand up her dress and kissed her.

Matheba’s manager, Sylvester Chauke, said she was still “very upset”, and that they had “engaged with everyone concerned” and are getting to the root of the matter before considering legal options.

In an email to City Press, Euphonik said he tried to call Khune to remedy the situation, “but all he could say is that I embarrassed him and he didn’t want to talk to me”.

Sway manager Makhosini Sihlali confirmed that Khune and Euphonik argued, “but Euphonik did not touch Khune, although there was an exchange of words”.

Khune’s legal adviser, Chris de Agrella, said his client told him about Euphonik’s apology.
